Networks have always been and will be the backbone that all IT depends on. It’s tempting to opt for the most powerful WAN and accept the costs that go with it. However, you could find that IP VPN with carrier-agnostic connectivity is better and cheaper than a single-carrier MPLS.

We understand, you put a lot of pressure on your network. It’s truly mission-critical to design a network architecture that enables stellar application performance, reliable voice, video and collaboration tools, and secure cloud connectivity. We’ll help you get there, drawing on our experience as customers. We actually have been in your position.

Networks Tailored for Simple Operation and Resilience

SkyHelm specializes in designing networks with solid core and software-defined networking platforms, tailored for the applications, services and cloud strategy you’re invested in. We’ll build for maximum flexibility, so you can adapt the network to match your IT road map.

Maybe QoS or latency are paramount, or you need total control over routers and the firewall. Let’s discuss the pros and cons of each network configuration option, including consideration of the cost-per-port, switches and maintenance, and factor in the total cost of ownership, not just the initial installed cost. We can also point out super practical ways to ensure availability, such as having a back-up switch in-house that you can swap in a matter of minutes, as opposed to relying on third-party technical support that could take hours.

"Through the process of [SkyHelm] asking good questions, we got to a point where we needed to stop what we were doing and spend some time doing a redesign and redeployment... as a result of that we now have a network that hardly ever goes down."
