Converged Private Networks

Converged Private Networks

Supporting voice and business-critical applications across multiple sites.

MPLS-based WAN solution that supports voice and business-critical applications across multiple sites

Converged Private Networks (CPN) is our fully-managed WAN (Wide Area Network) solution that is ideal for businesses with multiple sites that want to boost the performance, improve the security and reduce the cost of their network.

As the way people work, interact and collaborate undergoes profound change, companies are seeing growing demand from employees for more flexibility in where they work and more choice in the way they communicate, such as IP telephony, unified communications and cloud-based services.

CPN delivers the performance, reliability and security that businesses need to make effective use of today’s multi-media services.

By fully integrating our IP telephony hosted voice solutions, Horizon and SIP Trunks with our MPLS core network, you can benefit from having all your IP voice and data services supplied by a single vendor – with just one point of contact, one bill and one set of SLAs.

Our MPLS core network

Our core network is a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based Wide Area Network (WAN) that enhances the inherent benefits of MPLS with the integration of our market-leading high quality IP telephony services.

With our customer premises equipment installed at every site to enable end-to-end full management of the network, performance can be managed centrally and effectively, meaning we can provide you with network-wide service level agreements (SLAs).

Our next-generation firewall is highly available and hosted in the cloud, which protects all access to your Virtual Private Network (VPN) and ensures that users at every site, along with remote workers, receive the same up-to-date protection against the latest cyber threats.

Next-generation firewall

Whilst traffic contained within the Converged Private Network itself is secure, we can also offer secure cloud internet access when routing traffic in and out of your Converged Private Network by routing all internet traffic via the firewalls in our core network. These devices are provided as fully-managed high availability firewall instances on our next-generation firewalls.

Fully managed, monitored and administrated by our security professionals

This saves you the investment cost and effort of having to resource this in-house. We’ll take responsibility for the implementation so that you can focus on running your business with the peace of mind that you’re protected from external threats.

High availability design as standard

Increases the service availability and resiliency level providing you with continuity in the unlikely event of a hardware failure.

Secure remote access

For roaming, homeworkers and secure site-to-site connectivity – your staff can access key business systems and applications without compromising the security of the private network and exposing sensitive and intellectual property to an attack.

Antivirus, antispyware/malware

Scans applications, website URLs, web content and email content to protect against viruses and malware that may be trying to penetrate the network to steal data. Operating from a database containing thousands of threat signatures means you are protected from a wide range of threats that could cost your business significant financial and reputational damage.

URL filtering

Controlling staff access to non-work related surfing and blocking access to compromised sites helps to reduce malware attacks and increase staff productivity.

Application level visibility and control

Offers sophisticated insight, down to an application level, showing which sites staff are viewing and how much network capacity they’re consuming. You can control or limit usage which helps to reduce network costs, boost productivity and ultimately improve the performance of your business.

IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) single pass packet inspection

Identifies malicious content as well as known and unknown vulnerability exploits in applications and websites. This provides you with advanced levels of protection against vulnerabilities in well-known business applications and web browsers, without exposing your business to being exploited or impacting performance.

The key benefits of CPN

The flexibility to quickly and effectively support changes in business connectivity requirements means that you’ll be able to add sites and increase capacity on demand.

  • Advanced network security

Combine with cloud internet access to provide multiple layers of protection against threats, ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of intellectual property and customer information by scanning all traffic — applications, users, and content across all ports and protocols.

  • Application prioritisation

Enabling support for higher quality voice and video conferencing, along with business-critical applications, means that your business will benefit from high quality voice and video calls and uninterrupted access to the tools you need to do your job.

  • High network availability

Reliability and resilience for business continuity on both our core network and at your office location.

  • Scalable bandwidth

Meet differing needs across organisations and sites and help future-proof your network to accommodate growing business requirements.
