Choosing A Network Provider
You have worked on your network design for weeks with your team. You’ve discussed applications, security, internal and external traffic, bandwidth requirements….. Now you need to choose which carrier is best to trust your network to. Whether it’s a national multi site network or a network in a more defined regional footprint. The concerns are real and any impact to the network the business will need to respond.
Your first thought is probably to engage each of he Tier 1 carriers, AT&T, Verizon, Century Link… You may then reach out to a few of the regional or cable carriers, Time Warner, Comcast, Cox Cable… Meeting with each team will require way too much time over many weeks. Various quotes and suggestions on changes to your design will surely manifest themselves. Depending on the complexity of your network you will need to commit to 3-6 months of meetings before you can even begin to place orders and have your new solution implemented. You will also need to sit through the various sales pitches from each carrier. Unfortunately the Sales Team and Engineers directly employed by the carriers have their focus and experience on that particular carrier. This results in you having to do much more homework than necessary.
