What's the difference between National & Global ISPs?

Dedicated Internet access

August 20, 2020 Dedicated Internet access

To efficiently drive productivity, mitigate risk, and improve security, moving data in a digital marketplace demands companies to improve their Internet capacity.

As organizations develop, new digital business models deliver ICT innovation deployment, enable remote employee productivity, and drive online customer engagement, “*a one-second delay in Internet delivery costs a 16% decrease in customer satisfaction.”

Mission-critical applications

For mission-critical applications such as video conferencing, VoIP, and Unified communications, sharing business Internet bandwidth can impede your companies productivity.

Today, the solution for many companies is a dedicated Internet connection. Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) consists of an always-on connection for continuous access to the public Internet.

What's the right type of dedicated Internet access for a local company?

Unlike traditional broadband, companies with dedicated Internet access do not share bandwidth with other subscribers. For mission-critical communications requirements such as a secure Internet connection for e-commerce, enterprises often prefer to source dedicated Internet access bundled with other components, and which address a wide range of end-to-end solutions, such as SD-WAN.

Dedicated Internet access always includes:

› Guaranteed bandwidth

› Power and speed

› Dedicated customer service

› Increased productivity

› Enhanced security

Companies seeking Dedicated Internet Access options can choose among a variety of Internet service providers of different sizes and scale, though not all Internet access providers deliver an equal service.

National Vs Global ISPs

Companies that choose dedicated Internet access may do so because they operate only in a single locality or country, or perhaps in a small number of countries.

To optimize the performance of Internet traffic exchanged between their downstream clients, within a specific geographic locality, local Internet service and telecom providers partner directly with regional and global ISPs.

Network Infrastructure and Scope

The geographic scope of a network is often acknowledged as the primary factor when choosing an Internet Service Provider.

If your company operates in multiple global regions, a global Internet Service Provider is perfect.

Having partnered with a National Internet Service Provider to establish greater coverage, a global Internet Service Provider can only partially deliver a multi-national service.

With an extensive network and maintaining a large fleet of remote technicians, a global Internet Service Provider needs to establish countless national Internet service partnerships in each locality, to adequately cover the bandwidth needs of each location in which they operate.

If your company has local or regional operations, a smaller network of local Internet Service providers significantly optimizes Internet coverage options according to your business locations.

Through a local Internet Access Network, companies benefit from a highly reliable and secure, private Internet connection that delivers guaranteed bandwidth, and adds value to local ISPs by offering a traffic profile mix that favors local businesses.
