GOVERNMENTS around the world use master solutions providers and not just Fortune 500 firms or even private mom and pop startups. Foremost of this is the United Nations. When the secretary-general travels to a foreign place, all communications and file transfers between the secretary-general’s convoy and the head office in New York must be secure. It can only be done through MPLS VPN and voice over IP. It used to be that MPLS VPN or virtual private network travels only via fiber optic wire in DSL. But with the advent of technology these years, mobile MPLS VPN is already a trend. Continental collocation transfer of files is also now possible because master solutions providers continents apart are now interconnected. For instance, XO Colo is interconnected with a provider in Belgium so transfer of files to the UN office in Belgium is instantly achieved.
There are also nations of the world who have banded together to form the Open Skies Treaty. Aircraft used in visited countries use sophisticated communication systems to track down violations of the treaty. These are hosted by the provider, too. So master solutions providers don’t just provide solutions for private enterprises, it is ideal for government entities, too.
And it is definitely ideal for any kind of business. The food business is a terrific way to exemplify how a master solution provider works. The border city of Laredo, Texas for instance doesn’t have land fit for agriculture. So locally grown crops must be imported elsewhere and the only sensible location is the border city of Juarez. To transport produce from Juarez, you need smooth coordination. And to achieve smooth coordination especially in tracking which routes are safe, you need to communicate well through secure channels. This can only be done through voice over IP. Voice over IP service is installed in the collocation headquarters of your agricultural business in Laredo. It is being configured by you yourself and the equipment are very state of the art indeed, using only such well known brands as Avaya and Cisco. Of course, Linksys comes into play too occasionally.
Speaking of food, without doubt, the best culinary schools are located in Switzerland. But in order not to be isolated from the rest of the world, they need to simulate techniques coming from other countries. To do this, they also need the services of the master solutions provider such as enterprise hosting, T1 and the like.
