As we say a lot here on our blog, in the 21st century, connectivity is everything. And few things are more important to businesses in this day and age than a stable Internet connection.
Dedicated Internet Access, or DIA, provides just that, a direct Internet connection that can be used for almost any business need. From website connectivity to the Internet, to access to VPNs, to creating a connection so that you can remotely access network equipment located in a Telx data center, DIA gives you the global connection you need across a wide variety of usage cases.
In giving you a dedicated Internet connection, Telx’s DIA also comes with a number of other benefits:
Scalability: Because customers are able to burst beyond their committed information rate (“CIR”), they’re able to easily scale as bandwidth needs change—great examples might include a hosting company who’s traffic increases as they experience customer growth or a cost conscious start up enterprise who’s bandwidth needs fluctuate based on workers access of information on corporate servers throughout the day. As with many of Telx’s other services, Telx DIA is designed to work for your business throughout all stages of its lifecycle.
Flexibility: DIA isn’t only scalable—it’s flexible, too. You can just as easily use Telx DIA for connecting your hosting business to the Internet as you can for connecting two data center locations either within the same region or across continents. Working for a wide variety of needs, DIA offers flexibility for businesses that want to future-proof and leave connectivity options open down the road.
Ease of Management: Telx DIA provides you with one invoice to manage, cross connect at no additional charge, and a national footprint, reducing the need for multiple vendors. All of this means an easy-to-manage, competitive solution for your dedicated Internet access needs.
Cost-effectiveness: Finally, Telx DIA provides excellent performance at a competitive price. Rather than procuring a point-to-point connection between two locations, Telx DIA allows an all-in-one connectivity solution at a reasonable price. Plus, because Telx DIA is so scalable, that cost-effectiveness only serves to make things easier for your business as you scale up and expand.
At Telx, our DIA is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and our industry leading SLA offers an uptime guarantee like you won’t find anywhere else. If you need an “always on” connection to the Internet, Telx Dedicated Internet Access is a great way go.
