The benefits of hosted and managed network services have made the service essential to stay competitive at the business level. Here are six key benefits.

When VoIP became more widely used in business a few years ago, the initial focus was almost exclusively on the benefits of corporate phone systems. As the capabilities of VoIP have expanded and developed, the range of its benefits has also increased. Recently, many companies have expanded their VoIP facilities to include unified communications, VoIP-based conferencing, and now cloud-based networking services. Additionally, customers, vendors, and other market factors have created an increased demand for Managed Lan Services for faster access, higher availability, greater reliability, and improved security, service, and support. The solution to meet these demands: Managed Lan Services to help businesses stay competitive in today's volatile economy.

The company seeks the benefits of Managed LAN Services

Today's businesses are looking for a network infrastructure solution that intelligently combines voice and data networks beyond traditional VoIP offerings to maximize the performance of their converged business network. And today, businesses expect this optimized network to be extended to their employees in a way that maximizes their productivity on a managed VoIP network. More than two-thirds of surveyed companies are turning to managed IT services to improve their IT operations, according to a recent study by CompTIA, the fourth annual survey of trends in managed services.

1. Control the operating costs of the entire IT network

First, the implementation of managed network services will reduce operating, maintenance, maintenance, hardware, software and infrastructure costs. A recent CompTIA survey of 400 IT and business professionals found that 46% of organizations that use managed service providers for some or all of their IT needs say they have cut their annual IT budgets by at least 25% as result of the adoption of services. ...

Furthermore, these costs become more controllable and predictable when they take the form of fixed costs. Additionally, upgrade costs are reduced as they are handled by the provider of the managed network. This location also reduces ongoing maintenance costs. Plus, the less physical equipment on site means lower capital costs. Finally, the costs that can arise from initial and ongoing training, staff turnover, and technology upgrades have been minimized or eliminated.

2. Proactive maintenance of the network and prevention of problems.

Managed network services companies allow companies to focus on their primary business goals. To do this, they combine high-performance network availability with increased speed and flexibility to drive business growth. Network service companies have the infrastructure to support faster deployments and upgrades. This advanced network configuration is under continuous proactive and predictive testing and enhancement. Additionally, managed network services provide access to the latest technologies that businesses couldn't otherwise afford.

Similarly, problems are easier to prevent with continuous monitoring services provided by network service providers. West UC offers Network Monitor, a comprehensive WAN management system that contains tools to easily manage equipment, circuits, and VLANs. Alerts can be configured on these types of systems to avoid problems that stop the system before they interrupt daily business operations.

3. Enhanced network security

Managed network services provide enhanced security for your entire voice and data network. Most network service providers include products that protect your business from spam, malware, viruses, intrusions, and inappropriate web content. This policy-protected configuration keeps all transactions, business-critical applications, and data safe.

MaxxSecure is an example of a network services solution that eliminates single points of failure and prevents bottlenecks and intrusions with a fully managed network security solution.
