Connectivity & Bandwidth

As many employees now work from home, your business may need to increase network bandwidth to ensure optimal use of online resources. We are here to help. Our fiber network can provide Internet speeds of up to 10 Gbps and provides 99.999% core network availability. If you already have Consolidated Internet service, we may be able to expedite a bandwidth upgrade to meet your increased demands.

Switched Ethernet

  • Switched Ethernet WAN services provide high-bandwidth connectivity for site-to-site networks, business continuity, data center, storage, convergence applications, LAN extension and Internet access. Ethernet is simple to implement and support in multi-site environments, besides being highly cost-effective.

Dedicated Internet

  • With a business-grade Dedicated Internet connection, you’ll enjoy dependable speeds, service and capabilities – all backed by a 99.999% core network availability.

Network Security

As companies are facing new security threats and challenges every day, it's important to have a cloud-based network security system that's strong enough to protect your data. Effective Unified Threat Management must address:

  • Threat prevention – proactively identify malicious attempts to damage the network
  • Streamlined security network deployment
  • Reduced end-user downtime and improved response times to incidents
  • Decreased security operation costs
  • Identification and elimination of unneeded applications to reduce the threat footprint
  • Increased visibility and control over the network

Cloud Secure

  • Consolidated Communications can help companies of all sizes better protect their networks against system intrusions and security threats that put critical resources at risk. Cloud Secure automatically addresses an ever-growing list of innovative security attacks, allowing IT resources to stay focused on strategic initiatives that ensure productivity, save money, or protect your business reputation. Cloud Secure is a fully-managed security platform that operates on industry-leading technology and uniquely integrates next-generation network firewall security, advanced endpoint protection, and threat intelligence. With more companies asking their employees to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), network security is more challenging than ever.

Access to Cloud Providers

To ensure consistent access to applications and data, many companies are moving critical production workloads to the cloud, leveraging the on-demand resources of providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. With this shift, businesses must optimize Internet bandwidth and reliability.

Cloud Peer Connect

  • Our Cloud Peer Connect platform provides secure, reliable dedicated bandwidth to support cloud applications such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Oracle FastConnect. Cloud Peer Connect offers:
  • Improved network performance – Dedicated connections, redundancy, and diverse routes ensure your critical cloud-based workloads get the network performance they require to improve business productivity.
  • Greater security – Cloud traffic does not traverse the public Internet. Direct connections to cloud service providers ensure lower latency and mitigate security risks, such as Distributed Denial of Service (DdoS) attacks.
  • Support for multiple Cloud Service Providers – Support includes AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Oracle FastConnect.

Communication & Collaboration

Whether in the office, on the road, or working from home, corporate teams need to communicate and collaborate. Traditional PBX and IP-PBX-based platforms cannot fully address these challenges. What’s needed is a feature-rich cloud platform that is accessible to everyone in the organization – wherever they may be. Consolidated's cloud-based platform offers better security, business continuity, and potentially lower costs, in addition to facilitating seamless team collaboration.

Business Continuity

Will your business survive if your corporate data center goes down or becomes inaccessible? Does your business continuity plan include data center colocation for primary or secondary backup sites?

Data Center Colocation Services

  • With the right data center colocation provider, you can ensure the reliability and availability of critical applications and data while minimizing the risk of unplanned outages. When choosing a provider, you should consider these factors:
  • Location – An off-site data center should be located in an accessible area with a low risk of natural disasters, minimal adverse weather conditions, and adequate transportation infrastructure.
  • Reliability – The data center should eliminate points of failure by integrating multiple levels of redundancy. Be sure to check the provider’s track record on outages, availability and service level history, as well as its maintenance procedures.
  • Commercial Power – A resilient data center will provide diverse power feeds from utilities into the facility. If one feed is compromised, another feed can keep operations running.
  • Network Availability – Access to a reliable network and high-speed connectivity is a major benefit for businesses.
  • Physical Security – The right data center provider will implement multiple levels of physical security inside and outside the facility. External physical security measures, such as barriers, reduce the likelihood of vandalism or break-in while sophisticated access control and monitoring systems can prevent unauthorized access to secure areas.
  • Staff Expertise – The best data center providers will employ experienced, knowledgeable and highly skilled IT staff. The right solution will offer support staff around-the-clock, every day of the year.

Disaster Recovery

  • Consolidated also offers data protection services that ensure your data is backed up and available for seamless recovery. Our cloud-based solution provides rapid failover of mission-critical applications and data with continuous protection and leading RPO and RTO standards.

Virtual Office Productivity Tools

Office productivity has taken on new meaning in today's digital workplace. Employees need to be productive in the office, the hotel, at home, or wherever they may be. Adopting cloud-based productivity tools, including email and Microsoft Office, ensures that employees can do their best work, wherever they may be.
