Network as a Service
As new technologies unlock exciting capabilities, they can also create additional complexity within the work environment. To stay focused on innovation and value, businesses need smart, agile network infrastructure designed to adapt and grow. Enter TenFour’s Network as a Service (NaaS) package: business-grade internet—plus all of the network technology and capabilities you need to quickly, securely, and reliably connect employees and resources—in one streamlined subscription solution.
Our NaaS is a simplified way for businesses to deploy secure, cutting-edge networks without taking on the burden of design, installation, and maintenance. It’s comprised of four flexible core technologies, which are detailed below. We endeavor to eliminate the challenges and responsibilities businesses typically face when managing their own IT infrastructure.
Elements of Network as a Service
Our NaaS solution combines the four major technology components below to deliver a turnkey networking solution. In addition, our unified, end-to-end approach to IT enables us to easily integrate additional business technologies, such as communications and collaboration, Internet of Things integrations, and more.
Data is an invaluable asset, and bandwidth governs the speed of business. We simplify your internet connectivity by employing fast, redundant, and diverse connections from local carriers and handling all of the contracts, negotiations, and billing ourselves, so your connection never falters and you never have to decipher or mediate a bill. No matter how many locations need internet, you receive one bill from us without headache or hassle.
We offer a wide variety of global regulation-compliant options to detect suspicious activity and protect your network at the Host and Network layers, including best-in-class, next-generation firewalls, security management, and command and control functions. We also offer certificate-based encryption, private Cloud protection, and remote access defense with authorized application access in addition to threat auditing and reporting, traffic inspection, fraud protection, and much more.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)
We provide encrypted VPNs, physical components, and configurations to ensure the highest levels of automated, dynamic global network connectivity, performance, and availability. In addition to Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), we offer Cloud-based centralized management, application classification, and link optimization. Our approach enables “zero-touch” scalable deployments, streamlined regulation compliance, disaster avoidance and recovery capabilities, end-to-end encryption, and much more.
Wired & Wireless Local Area Network (LAN)
We install a combination of wired and wireless components—access points, switches, servers, controllers, and more—to facilitate networking capabilities and ensure high-bandwidth connectivity, instant access to networked resources, and consistent, reliable communications. We seamlessly connect all of the devices in your network to provide authentication, security, and visibility features that track your network’s health and performance, provide traffic analytics, and enable stakeholders to view business activities, performance, and productivity metrics.
Advantages of Network as a Service
One Simple Solution
We collect a wide array of network technologies—high speed circuits, 5G LTE, cable broadband, wired and wireless networking, and security capabilities—into a single subscription package to streamline network deployment and operation. We take the complexity and frustration out of your network’s design, construction, and maintenance by handling all of the necessities ourselves, including all internet contracts and billing, so you never have to struggle with dozens of vendors and compatibility issues.
Lower Cost of Operation
Since we include all of the design, configuration, implementation, project management, rack/stack, test/turn-up, monitoring, break/fix, changes/patching, our NaaS costs far less than deploying a network yourself. Standardized network designs paired with our lifecycle management and maintenance programs help us leverage our expertise to eliminate hidden costs. And since we retain ownership of and responsibility for all of the network components, no capital expense is required and none of the risk is passed on to you.
We use the latest authentication, encryption, and communication protocols to secure data, applications, and communications. Our NaaS features a Cloud-based network firewall to support attack prevention, risk reduction, and compliance throughout your network. We quickly identify zero-day attacks implement near real-time updates for intrusion prevention, advanced malware protection, and URL filtering.
Reliability & Longevity
In addition to Cloud-based network management, we include redundant connections to ensure high priority traffic is routed quickly and without interruption. We rigorously test each component for compatibility and reliability to ensure there’s no single point of failure. And we provide 24x7x365 support from our U.S.-based Network Operations Center (NOC), from which we configure, troubleshoot, and monitor your environment, remediate any problem, and deploy new updates, hardware, and software as conditions require.
Scalability & Agility
Our NaaS is built to adapt. If you need to expand your network to encompass new locations, employees, and resources, we can seamlessly integrate every element into one environment. And should your business need to reduce the number of locations served, we easily accommodate those changes. We scale up your internet service and wired and wireless network connectivity to provide the bandwidth and capacity you need or add additional security measures should new threats require them.
Every NaaS solution includes a collection of complimentary, embedded services provided throughout the service’s lifecyle and designed to ensure your network’s optimal performance.
Hand selected and rigorously tested equipment, software, telecom, and physical infrastructure resources, configured for interoperability, reliability, and performance.
We watch over your network infrastructure 24x7x365 via remote monitoring, network mapping, ticket creation, and more to verify it’s always running at its best.
Every solution includes proactive maintenance of your environment and quick implementation of Day 2 system changes, so your technology is always in sync with your needs.
In the event of a problem, our team of engineers acts fast to notify you of an incident and remediate your technology either remotely or on site.
No matter the breadth or depth of the solution we provide, all devices come standard equipped with a frontline set of protections enabled to keep the device and your business safe.
Commitment Like No Other
At TenFour, we understand that your network is the backbone of your business’s operations and unlike competitors, we put our money where our mouth is. That’s why every NaaS deployment is bolstered by industry-leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that codify our commitment to your business and are designed to ensure maximum network performance. You’re not charged until everything works, and if something goes wrong you don’t pay for it; we pay you for the trouble and strive to make it right.
