We’re providing highly guaranteed and secure connectivity between users and cloud resources.
BERLIN (PRWEB) May 16, 2018
The importance of Service Level Agreement (SLA) assurance continues to grow as our society is more and more dependent on uninterrupted digital life. This is especially true with the Critical Communications sector providing services that protect citizens every second, 365 days a year. A good example of this is national emergency call centers, known by Europeans as a 112 service. These call centers are dispatching firefighters, police and medical help when needed. It’s clear that emergency calls need to be completed with sustained quality in order to get the help to where it’s needed as quickly as possible. But a lot goes on behind the scenes, and can also go wrong if service level objectives are breached.
For Critical Networking professionals it’s an imperative that the network is not jeopardizing critical communications. We should work as hard as possible to implement highly accurate network performance monitoring that continuously tracks data delivery, latency and other key quality indicators that are visualizing network health for operations teams. Nobody wants to drive blind.
But we can do even more. When required levels of continuity and quality metrics are agreed in SLAs, we’re in fact stepping forward to take responsibility for our part. When you measure your performance, you can also track improvements in your network quality using SLA tools. Good SLAs also prevent counterproductive finger pointing. In a way it’s all digital - SLAs are either met or breached. And every month there’s an opportunity to improve the quality of Critical Communications.
We understand the importance of critical networking, and it’s our pleasure to affirm that offering managed, assured and secure networking services to the critical communications sector is easier and more flexible than ever. “Together we’re providing highly guaranteed and secure connectivity between users and cloud resources,” says Jorma Hämäläinen, Sales Executive and Co-Founder of Creanord. “This combined solution enables Critical Communication organizations to embrace the benefits of Virtualized Networking without having to second guess security and quality,” adds Dieter Will, ADVA’s VP of business development, EMEA.
