Local Area Networks (LANs) are key to the stability and speed of enterprise applications. But services such as voice over IP and unified communications place new and greater demands on the performance and availability of active LAN components. This increases administrative effort and ties up valuable resources, especially in organizations with thousands of LAN ports and multiple sites around the globe.
T-Systems’ Managed Inhouse lends a helping hand when it comes to active LAN components. This managed LAN offering comprises planning and provisioning of ports and software in line with customer requirements, hardware maintenance, and assistance with the rollout. It also includes proactive LAN monitoring, reporting on service level compliance and technical performance, updates, and comprehensive support during ongoing operations. T-Systems assumes end-to-end responsibility for LAN management: from implementing simple changes, such as employee relocations, to highly complex configuration work.
Keep your LAN infrastructure on the cutting edge – and save money
Managed LAN services are particularly beneficial during transition, for example when moving to VoIP or other technologies, or when deploying new LAN equipment. T-Systems leverages your existing components, such as Cisco and Juniper switches, whenever possible, but replaces outdated parts with state-of-the-art, standardized solutions.
Our made-to-measure pricing models allow you to strike the right balance between one-time costs and monthly charges for ongoing operational tasks. Enterprises benefit from transparent invoices and savings of up to 25 percent compared to managing the infrastructure in-house. This figure is backed up by studies by the Experton Group: the market research organization established that outsourcing the management of LAN infrastructures can result in significant savings.
