‘Tis the season for giving thanks. Many – including business execs and decision makers – are taking this time to reflect on what they are most grateful for this holiday season. Among the many things businesses should be counting their blessings for this holiday season is Carrier Ethernet.
Here are 10 reasons why:
- Ubiquity and simplicity: Most companies today are well-aware of Ethernet due to its simplicity and proven performance in the LAN. They are familiar with the capabilities of Ethernet networks and, because of this, look to extend their existing service to cover wide area and multi-site networks.
- High performance and bandwidth: Channel Partners’ “Ethernet Services & The Channel: State of the Market 2013” report shows that Carrier Ethernet is becoming a must-have option for meeting expanding bandwidth demands in a cost-effective manner.

What would you do in the event of a natural disaster, security threat, virus or computer crime? More often than not, the true impact of these business interruptions is realized too late or after the fact. Your enterprise cannot afford to lose any of its mission-critical information and network failure can be expensive. In fact, even a few minutes of downtime would wreak havoc on your organization, seriously affecting your business and causing large amounts of financial loss.
According to recent research from SDN Communications, 87 percent of businesses that go more than seven days without access to their corporate data go out of business within one year. Additionally, 80 percent of businesses that experience a major disaster but fail to implement a contingency plan will fall into liquidation within 18 months.
For this reason, downtime is not an option. In order to survive in today’s competitive market, companies must have a presence that extends beyond the immediate physical location.
Lam Cloud is a leading provider of Business Continuity, Workplace Recovery, Data Center and Network solutions, including over 3,000 work desks, desktop and server virtualization, secure backup, storage and archiving, and virtual office environments. The company has also developed strategic alliances with a variety of proven DR/WR/BC partners to deliver a comprehensive Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solution to customers in the New Jersey/New York Metro market as well as across the U.S.; these include Agility Recovery, Brocade, Risk Masters, Inc. and Telx, amongst others.
A Lam Cloud solution will ensure that your business is supplied with 100 percent uptime and all of the scalability, reliability and security your company needs for a secure and efficient solution. This means that in the event that your network goes down, your business will keep on operating as usual, even in the event that your office is not accessible and your equipment is damaged beyond repair.
Additionally, customers can take advantage of Lam Cloud’s proven Business Continuity offerings, including BC planning, stress tests, gap analyses and business impact analyses. Your company will gain access to everything it needs for a complete DR solution at a fraction of the cost, without having to worry about any of the headaches that come with unexpected business interruptions. Additionally, there will be no reason to worry about how to run a business without a physical location. Revenue, reputation and customer trust will remain unscathed.

Well I did. TeliaSonera International Carrier’s (TSIC) recent launch and support for whatisIPX.com is a step forward for any beginner and professional alike. TSIC has brought together an expert panel that includes independent analysts and commentators – all focused to promote better understanding of IPX, including responding to your specific questions.
The site contains multiple interactive resources to aid visitors in what IPX is, what it is not, what it’s capable of, and what it means for the future of communications. There are contributions from a growing panel of experts that include equipment maker F5 networks and independent analyst Innovation Observatory.
The site’s slides take visitors, step by step, through the platform’s concept, components, capabilities and its implications for emerging IPX-based services. The IPX blog features insights from thought-leaders including Simon Dodsworth, VP Voice and Mobile, TSIC; Bernd Hoogkamp, Director of Product Management Voice and Mobile, TSIC; Simon Sherrington, Founder, Innovation Observatory; and Peter Nas, Solution Engineer, F5 Networks.
The panel of “IPXperts” provides answers to your specific questions, although many of my questions I found had already been answered.
I learned that there are currently 206 4G-LTE networks in 79 countries, a substantial uptick since the first 4G-LTE networks were launched in 2009. But today those 4G-LTE users largely ‘default’ back to 3G when roaming. IPX, first proposed the GSM Association, enables the industry to meet the rising demand and expectations of these new mobile customers who expect the same high-quality service they experience on their home network anywhere and everywhere they go.
TSIC, part of the TeliaSonera group of 17 mobile operators, is a leading provider of fiber-based network infrastructure and services. The company owns and operates one of the world’s most extensive fiber backbones which encompasses 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) throughout Europe, North America and Asia (including Russia).
