WAN – Wide Area Network

WAN – Wide Area Network

Link two remote sites securely, or integrate voice, data, and Internet access across dozens or hundreds of sites with Wide Area Networking Solutions from RGTS - A ConvergeOne Company (RGTS).

Use the existing equipment and systems you have on site, use the powerful infrastructure hosted and managed by RGTS, or use a combination of the two that best suits your company.

RGTS has the technological expertise and infrastructure to tailor the performance, security, scalability, and cost parameters ideally suited to your company’s unique needs and circumstances. The choices are many; RGTS can help you make the best ones for your company.

Ideal Networking From Scratch

Starting from scratch, RGTS would likely recommend fully hosted and managed WAN solutions. These solutions leverage RGTS’s carrier-grade private trunk lines and 24/7/365 monitoring at its Network Operations Center.

These RGTS WAN solutions also leverage the industry’s best equipment, regardless of manufacturer, and the most advanced networking technology, such as standards-based MPLS IP VPN.

Leveraging and Expanding Existing WANs

Rarely do companies start their wide-area networking from scratch, however. Far more typical are busy daily operations that rely on existing networking systems. Businesses often expand, merge with new partners, and require better networking solutions. But interrupting daily operations is almost never an option. In these continuing operations circumstances, RGTS is exceptionally well suited to design and implement the best solution tailored to each client’s unique circumstances.

Rescues for Imperiled Legacy WANs

Many companies continue to operate effectively for years on well-constructed legacy WAN systems that rely on older technology, such as dedicated leased telephone lines and Frame Relay, ATM, or x.25. Although newer Internet Protocol performance capabilities and cost efficiencies may be attractive and under consideration, they are not an immediate operating priority.

But when a crucial legacy WAN component fails or service expertise is suddenly not available, a company’s critical business operations may be imperiled. In such a situation, RGTS is available immediately with the requisite expertise to restore and maintain a company’s  legacy WAN system.

Wide Area Networking technology has evolved rapidly and in scattered directions in recent decades.

A common technology challenge today: How to handle networks in a merger between two businesses that have mission-critical network operations and disparate technology protocols?

Rather than shut down, disrupt, and replace one networking system with the other, RGTS favors unifying the disparate systems through MLPS IP VPN (Multi-Protocol Label Switching - Internet Protocol - Virtual Private Network), a non-proprietary standards-based IP technology.

A familiar example: When a busy private medical practice becomes part of a larger hospital system within its area, neither the practice nor the hospital can afford interruption to patient care, new risks to patient medical records, or disruption to service billing operations.

MPLS uses a smarter, accelerated method to carry voice and data traffic across an enterprise’s Wide Area Network, regardless of the differing technologies used at the enterprise’s various locations, such as Ethernet, Frame Relay, ATM, and SONET. RGTS uses its own powerful private transport backbone, rather than publicly shared Internet paths.

MLPS IP VPN is not necessarily the right or best solution for every circumstance, however. Rather than recommend a sales-driven product or manufacturer to replace whatever a client may have in place, RGTS works with each company’s unique circumstances and needs to design and implement the most effective, cost-efficient solution possible.
