Businesses undergoing changes, either due to market pressures,
acquisitions, or geographical expansion, continually need to evaluate
next steps and alternatives for their corporate networks. In doing
so, IT departments need to meet the current business challenges
of increasing network security, containing network costs, and providing
access to remote workers on a global scale.
At this Pub, come hear Cable & Wireless discuss their IP-VPN solutions.
With their full portfolio of IP-VPN solutions, they can provide
the infrastructure required to meet the dynamic demands of your
business. Whether your business is thinking of network security,
incorporating new IP-based applications into your network, consolidating
your network infrastructure, interoffice networking, remote access,
videoconferencing, VOIP, or migrating from legacy technologies,
Cable & Wireless can talk to you about business needs driving IP-VPNs,
the solutions available, and the networks that make them work.
Their customers help design their IP-VPN networks, based on their
security policies. They are managed, monitored, and maintained by
security and networking experts, and they run on Cable & Wireless'
global IP network. Furthermore, Cable & Wireless partners with the
leading equipment providers, Nortel and Cisco, to ensure that they
offer the latest in networking technology.
