WAN [IP VPN] and E-LAN [VPLS] services allow to connect multiple local networks into a single, coherent infrastructure using MPLS technology and devices of recognised providers, including ▶ Cisco, Juniper, Fortigate.
WANs and E-LANs are particularly dedicated to geographically dispersed organisations. They provide fast and reliable communication and enable central management of the IT infrastructure and implementation of a common data security policy. It is possible to launch remote access for branches and individual users, also with the use of mobile devices.
The network can be managed entirely by 3S engineers or independently by the IT department of the organisation.
Regardless of the management method chosen, it is possible to define traffic rules in the network, prioritise and supervise the operation of critical applications and services.
WAN connections are made based on 3S own fiber optic infrastructure and networks of leading national operators: Play, Netia, Orange, T-Mobile, Polkomtel.
Network Operations Center [NOC] is supervised 24/7, and the SLA guaranteed by the agreement is 99.50 – 99.99%. The services use the Quality of Service and Class of Service mechanisms for the indicated traffic classes or applications.
Additionally, one of the centre included in the 3S Data Center Cluster can be used as a network node, a central server resource point, a company firewall or a backup data centre (DRC).
This will enable the server infrastructure to be made accessible to authorised users in a simple and secure manner, without compromising communication with key IT resources for headquarters and branches.
The service also facilitates the integration of the organisation’s telephone network by providing free intra-company calls.
