MPLS, Mesh, Point-to-Point Networks
Custom build an MPLS, Mesh or Point-to-Point Dedicated Network for site to site data. This traffic does not pass through the public Internet or through Skyway’s servers, resulting in the highest level of security and performance.
Highest level of security for site to site traffic
- Security is embedded in the Internet access instead of added by VPN or firewall
- Traffic flows directly between sites and not through Skyway’s network
- Direct traffic provides lowest latency and highest performance
- prioritize traffic (CoS) based on application requirements
- Bridge networking is an option
Skyway West designs and implements MPLS, Mesh and Point-to-Point Networks across Canada. Multi-site customers use these services to ensure their internal traffic has the highest possible security, bypassing the Internet and Skyway’s servers. Internet traffic can be separated from the dedicated network and sent through Skyway’s public distribution routers. Customer sites may use public or private static IP addresses.
If you are a single site business or cannot justify this level of security, we suggest our Managed Private Network service.
Global Mining Company uses Point-to-Point Network for Highly Secure Data Transfer
A mining company temporarily required increased office space while expanding global operations. They decided to lease off-site because short-term tenancy in their building was unavailable. As a publicly traded company operating in the high-stakes, cutthroat mining industry, they need 100% assurance that data passing between the two sites could never be compromised. They also required huge capacity for sending and receiving large CAD, GIS and other data files.
The Skyway West Solution
Skyway West installed a 200 Mbps Point-to-Point fibre connection between their two locations. Any Internet traffic from the new location was sent through the Main office firewall, which connects to the Internet through a second Skyway 100 Mbps fibre connection.
The mining company now operates an inter-office connection with the highest level of security and sufficient capacity for the required large file transfers between offices. This high-capacity point-to-point connection was more secure and less expensive than connecting the two offices at 200 Mbps through Skyway’s network. Operating outside the Internet also ensured the lowest possible latency and no external congestion.
National Food Producer Improves VoIP, Enables Internet Management, Secures Data and Saves Money
A national food production and distribution company headquartered in BC required a network plan to support VoIP capability between all locations, central control of staff internet access and out-of-province disaster recovery.
The Skyway West Solution
The customer decided, after consultation with our network engineers, that the most cost-effective and efficient plan was a direct connection from each location to head office, and from there through to the Internet. This design gave each office a direct connection to their VoIP server, and all branch Internet traffic would filter through the head office content management server and firewall. Our plan also recommended that each location link directly to their off-site disaster recovery site in Ontario.
Linking the offices directly to the VoIP server optimized VoIP performance by minimizing latency and packet loss. With access to the Internet monitored through head office, the company can now ensure that each remote location’s limited bandwidth is used solely for business purposes. Directly linking each location means off-site backup data never leaves their private network and, in the event of disaster, the company can rest assured knowing their data is accessible, secure and off-site.
Their IT department is happy and their accountants are thrilled, having saved thousands of dollars in install construction costs by buying all their services through Skyway, taking advantage of our partner relationships and volume discounts.
