ISP Optimization ConsultingThe options available to small businesses for Internet connectivity are changing faster than most IT managers can keep track. As a result, many companies are still using Internet connections and over-priced service plans even though faster, more reliable, and lower-cost options are readily available. Basically, they are paying too much for too little.

Besides the direct impact outdated ISP service plans have on your bottom line, other factors can make them even more costly. Slow bandwidth, high latency, poor Quality of Service, and sporadic availability equate to lost productivity, low customer satisfaction, and over-worked network managers. All this reduces the business value of your information network.

Progent can provide affordable online consulting expertise to help your organization to evaluate or upgrade your ISP services so your Internet connectivity solution matches your business needs. Services available from Progent include assessment of your current bandwidth utilization and requirements, vendor and plan comparison and selection, ordering, network provisioning, and managing a seamless switchover to a new ISP and/or service plan. Network provisioning can include optimizing existing routers and configuring new ones, setting up firewalls, and upgrading fault-tolerant BGP configurations.

Selecting the Right ISP Connection for Your Business
Your options for Internet access depend on your location. The Gold Standard is optical fiber, which offers the highest reliability and performance. If your office or data center is "on net" with a fiber provider (such as Cogent Communications or TW Telecom), you may be able to get an unlimited-use 100 mbps fiber connection for as little as $700 per month. If you're "off net" you still might be able to access a 100 mbps connection via AT&T custom installed fiber, although your monthly fee could be triple what you would pay if you were on net. If optical fiber is unavailable or too expensive, you may be able to get Business Class Cable Internet from Comcast, offering speeds up to 50mbps. Another alternative is to aggregate voice-grade copper-wire for a fast 10 mbps symmetrical Internet connection (Often this offering is called Metro Ethernet). Even the legacy ADSL standard has been upgraded with ADSL2+ offering up to 20 mbps speeds if you have close proximity to a central office. In some locations, line-of-site microwave or WiMax wireless connections can be your best option. In most cases, there are better choices available than sticking with DS3, bonded T1s, or other legacy connections.

An important key consideration is whether your ISP has good sharing arrangements with other carriers worldwide, known as "peering." Cogent is an excellent choice for small businesses, having attained the position as the top peered network globally with very aggressive pricing. By connecting to a well peered tier 1 provider, you can ensure low latency connections almost everywhere, which is a great advantage for real-time applications such as Voice-over-IP or video conferencing. Progent's Internet connection experts can help you evaluate alternatives and select an ISP and a service plan that makes the most sense for your business.
