Converged Networks 

Converged Networks are resilient internet connections that are used to carry both voice and data traffic. 

If you need guaranteed speeds, unlimited data transfers and a secure a resilient environment and high levels of control this could be the best option for you.  Ethernet can guarantee speeds and consistency where broadband can’t, so it’s a great option for peace of mind.

Why Choose Converged Networks from The Phone Co-op

  • Guaranteed speeds
  • Unlimited data transfers
  • Service Level Agreements (SLA’s)
  • Single firewall to unify network security
  • No single point of failure for added resiliency
  • PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance
  • No geographical restrictions for site locations
  • Full hardware management

If you have remote workers or are a multi-site business and you need a simple and secure way to access your internal network, you can also use a WAN/MPLS/VPLS to link your sites and employees into a single controllable environment.

You still have flexibility as a large network can be made up of a mix of standard broadband, Fibre and Ethernet/ Leased line circuits all securely connected via private routing. 

These services are all contained within a secure and resilient environment which is typically controlled by a single Firewall that provides the rules for all users. All data can “break out” to the wider internet through a single point allowing high levels of control and can also include a payment gateway, essential for retail environments.

We can offer customised converged network solutions for every business customer and will work with you to create a fully bespoke network that meets the needs of your business. From point of planning through to final delivery and hand-over we will assist through every step to make sure you maximise your data.
