Star Centric provide companies with robust solutions for phone, internet, Ethernet, and cable television networks. Cable technology and infrastructure provides tremendous bandwidth-for-the-buck when compared to traditional carriers, utilizing advanced HFC (hybrid fiber coax) networks. In addition, the reliability of cable networks is unparalleled when compared to similar solutions. Star Centric partners with the top cable companies in the U.S. and can offer your business the best cable solution, with the best service, at the most competitive prices.
Maintaining robust and reliable Internet connectivity is crucial for your business productivity and collaboration. Whether one location or many, cable solutions provide businesses one network for Internet access over dedicated fiber or coax networks, with bandwidth options up to 10Gb. These networks provide businesses with high-capacity connectivity supporting data transfers, media sharing, media streaming and collaboration between employees anywhere in the world. As fast, scalable, and secure large capacity Internet solutions become a requirement more than a luxury, cable Internet services are a leader in both technology and capability.
Cable Ethernet services provide organizations the high-capacity, high-bandwidth, and high-speed access and management features they need to excel while operating in a reliable and secure environment. Cable is an excellent option for companies with multiple locations as it provides seamless, secure access for remote employees to access applications and services efficiently. If network downtime is a concern or has been an issue in the past, cable is a viable solution: Star Centric service level agreements are unparalleled in the industry. Point-to-Point dedicated fiber connectivity within market and long-haul are also available.
Cable company networks today provide much more than just television and data services. Cable now offers some of the most cost effective and reliable telephone and voice solutions on the market. Cable powered PRI provides multi-line, high capacity ISDN voice trunks, while SIP trunks allow businesses to utilize VoIP solutions while utilizing their current phones. Turn-Key hosted VoIP over coax solutions are also available, with all phone equipment included. The cable facilities-based networks allow for an easy-to-manage, fiber-rich IP network with superior functionality and call quality. And companies can use their existing equipment/hardware and telephone numbers when making the transition.
When business cable services are bundled, companies save big money. More importantly, cable service bundling allows businesses to reduce the complexity of their services and streamline network processes. By bundling their phone, internet, Ethernet, and/or Cable TV services, companies often invest the cost savings back into the business via bandwidth upgrades or other value-added services.
Technology advances are accelerating the integration of the communications and IT worlds into a cohesive, inseparable business catalyst. With so many options, the method by which busy executives strategize, source, implement, and maintain their carrier services is more important than ever before.
The telecommunications landscape can be confusing, time consuming and unnecessarily expensive for IT managers who don’t speak the language or fully understand the landscape. Connectivity, compliance, security, up-times and service levels are just a few variables to manage, and each metric varies from carrier to carrier as well as from company to company. Through our strategic relationships with 70+ carriers and suppliers, Star Centric is your strategic partner that will help your IT department navigate through the noise, ensuring that your carrier services integrate powerfully with your IT infrastructure and business vision. And we’ll be your single point of contact for all carrier service related issues for your business for the lifetime of your contract.
WAN – Wide Area Network
Organizations operating in multiple geographic locations require employees, clients, and vendors to function efficiently in a single reliable network. Wide area networks (WANs) empower remote stakeholders to communicate and collaborate securely under one network, as if located within the same four walls.
The introduction of cheap bandwidth has significantly changed WAN technology. MPLS, VPLS, Broadband, FTTC, xDSL, fiber, copper EFM, 3G or 4G, and point-to-point: All serve a specific purpose for organizations today, and each has strengths and weaknesses based upon an organization’s geographic and IT infrastructure.
Some organizations have already made huge investments in legacy PBX phone systems. But they still want the benefits that come through converging all local and long distance phones systems and broadband Internet services onto one line. SIP Trunking allows businesses to reap VoIP-like benefits with legacy systems, without investing in new infrastructure. Using SIP, you can consolidate all your communication systems, including data and voice into one bill and a single point of contact.
Broadband today is about more than just high speed Internet connections in the office. In today’s business environment, it’s about having a connection wherever your employees need it. Whether DSL or Cable high speed Internet, Wi-Fi connectivity, or Mobile Broadband, all broadband networks are not created equal. Each carrier displays unique strengths and weaknesses depending on the region of the country you’re located, your business structure, and your vertical.
As companies become more digital, more global, and more virtual, high-performing and reliable Ethernet services become a strategic advantage for organizations. Utilizing the right carrier with the right cost effective solution allows organizations to deliver data, information, and applications securely over both Local Area and Wide Area Networks reliably and securely. We’ll help you determine the best Ethernet solution for your business, vet the best providers in your area, see the implementation through to the end, and will be your single-point-of-contact for all your Ethernet service needs.
If your business wants more from its current network, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a highly scalable packet-switched network solution that increases traffic performance in high usage networks. MPLS assigns data packets with specific labels, thus routing data through virtual paths between nodes rather than endpoints. The results? Enhanced bandwidth use, reduced network congestion and an overall better user experience. MPLS supports DSL, TI/E1, Frame Relay and ATM.
Virtual Private Networks (VPN) use encryption and tunneling to extend your company’s private network across a public network, like the Internet. By utilizing the right VPN solution, your business can operate between regional offices and remote/roaming users as if directly connected to your private network. VPNs scale easily from 64k to 100G and can combine with your voice network to reduce costs and reduce the number of circuits you need to manage. VPN solutions are often cheaper than MPLS and are an excellent choice for data recovery because they can quickly reroute traffic to a secure data recovery sites during emergencies.
