FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management (External Network)

Ensure fault-free global interconnectivity between every location of your enterprise and its central data center hubs

Successful corporations think globally and act locally. They combine the strength of a central headquarters with the advantages of proximity to local customers and resources. They also know the key to executing this type of strategy: reliable data interconnectivity.

FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management

The core of FNT Enterprise Connectivity Management (External Network) is a central repository that provides a complete inventory of all leased data carrier lines. This facilitates maintaining a governing oversight of long-distance networks. Comprehensive documentation of all connected endpoints, all associated contracts, and the relevant provider master data delivers maximum transparency. Integrated ready-to-use reports give a detailed overview and help identify and address specific issues. Pre-defined document templates help optimize purchase and termination processes. Planning and workorder capabilities facilitate setting up new connections and endpoints.

These leased data carrier lines are only one component of the actual connectivity service being provided within the corporation. Active endpoint components like supplier-specific routers must be set up, firewalls configured, and internal routings defined. Furthermore, capacity planning needs to ensure sufficient bandwidth at all locations, at all times.

The solution also organizes and manages external connectivity services in a product catalog. This enables enterprises to holistically design, offer, roll out and operate advanced external network connectivity as a business service, complete with transparent SLA/OLA descriptions, service quality parameters and pricing.

A distributed corporate structure is the most powerful form of organization. It combines strategic guidance and economies of scale with nimble local execution. Converting these advantages into tangible results requires low-latency, high-bandwidth, redundant data connections.

Providing these connections requires the IT department manage numerous leased data carrier lines from a broad range of telco providers. Processes impacted include provider selection, order initiation, contract management and provider partnership termination.
