June 28th, 2018 by

Network downtime is never welcome. But there was a time not so long ago when businesses could sustain up to 24 hours of it. Today, businesses depend so much on their mission-critical applications that any downtime is unacceptable. They simply can’t afford it.

WE WIN TOGETHER – Vol 1, June 2018

May 24th, 2018 by

Welcome to the Windstream Enterprise Resale Partner newsletter. Look to these as our monthly connection to provide you – our Partner – with insight into the magic behind the Windstream curtain. WE look forward to working together and, most importantly – winning together.

In case you missed the letter from Darren Mass, announcing the transformation of our Resale Services, you can find it here.

So, what have we accomplished over the last month?

DIA Portal Integration – Dedicated Internet Access (“DIA Prem”)
Over the last six months, we have been planning and executing on an integration plan focused on improving your customer experience. We pledge our continued commitment to enabling your success by consistently delivering the benefits of combining the best of our merged companies.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed Phase 1 of product and portal integration for our Dedicated Internet Access solution – also referred to as “DIA Prem”. The combined footprint of the new Internet offering will provide service availability for over 90% of the U.S. and will include several access methods such as Ethernet, Ethernet Over Copper, Fixed Wireless, DS1 and bonded DS1 technologies – with bandwidths up to 1Gb.

Our partners will now be able to choose from pre-configured CPE (managed router) with professional installation or customer provided equipment options. Our new managed router option features a range of benefits – from our proactive monitoring of the circuit performance, to providing real-time alerts in the unlikely event of an outage, to opening trouble tickets on your behalf. Windstream’s user-friendly Customer Portal Tool (CPT) allows you to seamlessly and efficiently quote and submit orders, eliminating the need for multiple tools and providing a streamlined experience.

This is the first of many enhancements we plan on making. We will be consolidating other products into the CPT, upgrading both our API and Bulk Quoting tool and extending availability of the managed router option into our ILEC footprint.

 


 

Windstream ILEC Territory Now Open for OfficeSuite White Label
There is now even more opportunity for OfficeSuite White Label sales! Windstream ILEC has opened up 1,055 rate centers for porting and new number availability for OfficeSuite White Label. This is a continuation of Resale efforts to expand coverage areas, allowing more end user locations to be served. Now is a great time to recheck addresses that may not have previously qualified for OfficeSuite White Label.

May 11th, 2018 by

Will your network bend or break?

May 4th, 2018 by

More than ever, networks are the backbone of enterprise activity

 

Yet the pressure of increasing traffic, data, users, applications and devices across complex new landscapes makes it harder to predict when additions to the technology stack (or the workforce or partnerships) will degrade or even sideline enterprise network operations—and what the impact of that action could have on performance and throughput. Without an eye to the future, it’s no wonder many IT managers are uncomfortable guaranteeing their network is ready to handle new workloads or applications.
