But given no single Internet provider can offer the best or most cost-effective network connection in every country across the world, global organisations today face the challenge of managing multiple network providers. Without an effective means of co-ordinating multiple service providers, it can be nigh on impossible to make and implement strategic decisions or deliver one consistent service level for your organisation.
