It’s not the dog in the fight, but the fight in the dog that matters. Maybe that’s a bit more scrappy than you’re accustomed to thinking when you consider your Quality of Service (QoS) or your network performance, but it’s really not that far off of the mark depending on your perspective. Considering all of the attributes that made your company’s most recent hire different from the other candidates is another way to think about it. They were clearly all capable and met certain requirements insofar as experience and skills are concerned, but be it cultural fit or just an energy that you jived with, she’s got that something extra. Virtually the exact same thing can be said about a network that is operating at its peak performance – that’s what you want on your side.
ISP – Buyer Beware
How do you shop for internet access? Typically you’ll do some comparison-shopping, maybe some bundling, but in the end you’re going to compare various speeds and costs and call it day. What you’re not seeing in that process is enormous. From the physical distance of your offices from the actual servers to the widely varying tendencies of each end user on how they access the web, there are a multitude of variables that will affect your internet service and speed. VirtualPBX can dive deep into your provider market’s specifications and find you the best price on the best service option, which is a real time-saver, but there’s still more that can be done once you’ve found the right ISP for you.
Study, Strategize, Execute
Once you’ve secured the best option on your ISP, you’ll want to get the most out of it, right? To determine how best to manage your bandwidth use via QoS to boost performance of critical applications takes a very nuanced and advanced understanding of network systems and behavior. Fortunately for you, I am not the guy who handles that here. Fortunate for me, too, because it’s more than one guy, we’ve got a whole team of network experts who are specialists in bandwidth optimization.
A Network Health Check from VirtualPBX launches that team into a full week of around-the-clock surveillance and analysis of your network’s behaviors, yielding far more than what a complete Speed Test can offer. Once they’ve assembled all of the information on how your network’s performance impacts the execution of critical applications, you’ll receive a comprehensive report complete with detailed prescriptive measures for moving forward. After you’ve completed your Network Health Check and any corrective actions, you can rest assured that your bandwidth prioritization hierarchy won’t ever drop your sales call because of the latest cat video download. Not that that’s ever happened or anything, of course.
