First of all, don’t fall into the trap of throwing more and more bandwidth at the problem. There are alternatives to spending money on ‘bigger pipes’. BT tackles your challenge in a number of ways, from class-of-service guarantees, that ensure you get the network performance you need, to doing more with application performance management tools.
One of our customers, Anglo America, the global mining company, deployed 68 BT Connect Optimisation appliances across its sites, saving millions of Euros over the lifetime of the contract. A large pharmaceutical company more than doubled the volume of traffic on its network, maintaining the application performance it needed without any bandwidth upgrades.
