CONNECTIVITY



Connectivity Services


We know transitioning from traditional services to advanced unified communications can be intimidating.

The Clear Communications Team has vast experience working with various data network providers. Leveraging that knowledge and experience we chose to work with providers who have a proven track record of delivering and supporting solutions long term.


Our network services portfolio includes:


  • High Performance, Fast Efficient Internet Options
  • Ethernet services – Metro, Wide-Area and Global
  • MPLS-VPN Connections
  • SD/SD-WAN services – (Software defined networking in a wide area network)

SD/SD-WAN


Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is changing the way the channel and IT organizations think about networking multiple locations.

Our SD-WAN portfolio is strong in the channel with more market leading providers than any master agent and exclusive distribution agreements.

The Fundamentals of IT have shifted…. The Rapid Adoption of Cloud/SaaS has changed the requirements of the Global WAN.

Slow application performance, latency, end-user frustration, rising network costs, and declining productivity are no longer acceptable.


Key features / Sd-wan



Application Visibility & Control

  • 100% uptime guarantee for locations with dual WANs.
  • Automatic adjustments to preserve prioritization based on pre-set performance benchmarks per application.

Dynamic WAN Selection Path Conditioning

  • Continuously monitor and improve network paths.
  • Uses forward error correction and jitter buffering for improved quality.

Dynamic IPsec Deployment

  • Automatically set up IPsec tunnels with end to end encryption.
  • Enable dynamic branch to branch connections for efficiency.

Stateful Firewall

  • Easily deploy and manage security policies with an integrated firewall.
  • Centrally manage security policies with capability for edge overrides.

Network Analytics

  • View real-time analytics to create policies and control application
    traffic for best performance.
  • Know what applications are running and the bandwidth being used.
  • Prioritize applications based on business policies.
  • Centrally manage and deploy routing policies via cloud
    based network management tool.

SD-WAN Allows businesses to augment their current networks with cost-effective, readily available broadband internet connectivity.


POINT TO POINT


Point to Point Connections a private data connection securely connecting two or more locations for private data services. A point to point connection is a closed network data transport service which does not traverse the public Internet and is inherently secure with no data encryption needed.

Point to Point connections are available in a range of a bandwidth speeds including point to point T1, point to point Ethernet, or point to point DS3. A point to point connection provides unparalleled quality of service (QoS) as it is not a shared service (a private line) and follows the same direct network path every time.

Point to Point links are used by businesses to provide reliable, secure point to point network data service for applications including credit card processing, file sharing, data backup, point to point VOIP, and video conferencing. A point to point network can also be configured to carry voice, video, Internet, and data services together over the same point to point connection. Point to Point circuits are also known as a Point to Point Link, Private Line, Leased Line, or Data Line.


MPLS


Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is the underlying routing and switching technology, providing Layer 3 routing at Layer 2 speeds and enabling multiple virtual networking environments and services to be delivered on a single layer 1 connection. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the separation of the Network Control Plane and the Data Plane.

Our global network from day one, gives our clients the power to directly affect real-time changes in bandwidth and QoS service planes. Our proprietary code writes changes directly to our PE routers (in our customer’s virtualized network space) from within our web portal, or even their smartphones (see video). This on-demand flexibility keeps our clients in control of their changing network needs; eliminating the need for CLI access to the hardware that controls the data flow.
