Connections to Count On
Effectively managing WAN infrastructure is not a simple feat. First, a functional WAN depends on factors that often are outside an organization’s control. If a telecommunications carrier or internet service provider is experiencing problems, so will its customers. But for organizations with distributed networks, abandoning the WAN is not an option – especially since software-defined WANs solve so many connectivity and speed challenges for branch offices.
Still, WANs – even when they are software-defined – do require some installation work and troubleshooting that may require in-person attention. Not every distributed business can easily afford to have technical staff on-site at remote locations whenever there is an issue. Further, managing multiple carriers across geographies presents its own challenges. Working with different points of contact, varying service-level agreements, and even vastly different technologies requires time and expertise that may be in short supply.
Fortunately, there are managed services to offload SD-WAN and carrier management – a blessing for IT teams that are stretched a little thin.
Structured, with its focus on security above all, takes a consultative approach with every customer and for all of its managed services. Our team works diligently to develop reliable, secure solutions that protect business. Also, unlike some agents that just act as a conduit to pass along problems to another agency to solve, Structured always maintains an interested and helpful stake in its clients’ concerns.
Structured also has partnered with Lightstream for managed SD-WAN and carrier services so our customers can enjoy the upside of robust connectivity without the downside of maintaining a large technical staff in case of hypotheticals.
Rather than deal with many companies, customers of Structured and Lightstream enjoy a single point of contact for managing carrier contracts and services. We take care of procurement, connectivity, monitoring and management to provide you with peace of mind.
Eliminate complexity while advancing connectivity for your entire enterprise.
