Your business needs to be online, all the time, with the fastest communications possible. That means broadband. Today, bandwidth-intensive applications are driving businesses to transition from legacy networks, such as dial-up and frame relay, to broadband virtual private networks (VPNs). But delivering secure, affordable broadband to all your branch sites, regardless of location, can be a complex and expensive proposition. How do you connect all your locations with broadband? T1 lines can be prohibitively expensive, and often DSL and cable are just not available. Do you have time to manage multiple network providers?
