Today, aging infrastructures are becoming too expensive and complicated for organizations to maintain. As a result, vendors that provide network and voice technologies—such as POTs, PRI T1s and data T1 circuits—are raising prices and decommissioning these services as they reach their end of life. Customers are already suffering from the limitations brought on by these technologies, with 90% of outages tied to Time Division Multiplexing (TDM), POTs facilities and equipment.1 The time has come for enterprise IT departments to modernize their networking strategies by switching to modern, IP-based solutions.
Why is this happening now? The truth is, this technological transition has been underway for quite a while. New FCC laws are coming into play that remove the obligation for vendors to provide outdated telecommunication services—as their costs continue to rise, vendors are being forced to pass the expensive bill on to their customers before the technology eventually reaches obsolescence. On top of these factors, IT teams that were struggling prior to the pandemic feel even more pressure to implement immediate solutions in response to growing challenges in a new environment.
These industry adjustments are the
reason Windstream Enterprise is proactively working with our clients to help
them navigate through this transition. IT departments that remain dependent on
these outdated technologies will have a hard time keeping pace with the call
for high-demand, high-bandwidth applications driving 24/7 business operations
The workplace has experienced two
enormous shifts—the cloud and
mobility—that have required organizations to reconsider how to connect and
secure their offices, users and resources. Yet with these two forces, issues with old technology and security
risks are swelling in both volume and complexity, requiring organizations to
embrace sophisticated, multilayer solutions to protect the increasingly
susceptible edges of their network, data and users. Legacy infrastructures
built from siloed tools don’t interoperate. Rather, they limit visibility,
control and performance. IP-based network solutions are the only viable option
to protect your organization from future threats and complications.
Windstream Enterprise will help you convert to IP-enabled solutions like Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and managed Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN), leveraging Ethernet, broadband and wireless access solutions to improve performance, reliability and control at a cost-effective price. Take the time to consider the right technologies toward futureproofing your business, to achieve a new state of agility and reliability for untethered connectivity and communications.
While relying on outdated
technologies, organizations will struggle to deliver the seamless journey that
customers and employees have come to expect due to a lack of interoperability
and integration between disparate apps and systems. The moment end-users
recognize a clunky experience, it will reflect poorly on the enterprise. A
digital experience (DX) delivers a customer experience (CX) and employee
experience (EX) full of feature-rich technologies like high-speed Internet,
mobility, real-time video and audio collaboration. Implementing modern-day
solutions with comprehensive network visibility allows IT leaders to keep a
constant eye on their overall network management experience.
Outdated infrastructures are
making it progressively more difficult to control the quality and costs of
these outdated systems, proving to be a frustrating process for business and IT
leaders. In a time when employees need to access applications and services
anytime, anywhere and via any device, it’s become imperative for technology to
be performing at its peak for seamless collaboration and connectivity.
There will always be a
technological shift that organizations must endure to drive digital
transformation. Business leaders are tasked with either rejecting or embracing
innovations that adhere to new industry challenges and preserve the future of
their organization. For our industry, the time for change is now.
There is great value in finding a
network provider that will support your migration by building trust, making the
extra effort to understand your business and responding quickly to solve your
problems. When moving away from legacy solutions, conduct thorough research in
service providers and never settle for “good enough.” Instead, find a partner that
will work endlessly to ensure your complete satisfaction with locked-in rates
and future-proofed technology. Windstream Enterprise promises to be
that trusted partner and to provide an unmatched,
fully supported experience—no questions asked.
No matter what industry you are
in, standing still at this pivotal time is not an option. Now is the time to
evaluate your options and discover the benefits that IP-based solutions can
unlock for your organization.
