How much can you save on your IT budget with a unified network?

Your network is probably costing you too much for insufficient performance

Whatever your sector, the size of your company, or your role, it is unlikely that your daily business tasks do not depend, at least in part, on internet connectivity.

If you are like most companies, you have separate networks to connect your different departments: one network dedicated to telephone services, a second for employee connectivity, a third for visitor WiFi, and perhaps others for cameras, VSEs, access to sensitive resources, etc.non-unified network.001

The challenges of a traditional network and the economic benefits of a unified network

Problem 1: unnecessary multiplication of projects and hardware

For each network, a deployment project must be arranged. You must synchronise with various engineers, the service may be temporarily unavailable, and the risk of incidents is multiplied.

For each network, new hardware has to be installed. Wireless equipment will have to be purchased and produced, unnecessarily using rare minerals whose extraction is particularly harmful to the environment.

Solution 1: One deployment for all wireless services

  1. Labour savings: a single deployment project for all networks instead of one deployment project per network.
  2. Equipment savings: fewer switches, fewer cables, fewer sockets... fewer problems.

  Between £8K and £40K in savings per site* 

*Price can vary depending on the size and requirements of your project



Problem 2: Heavy operational management

The number of supplier related issues increases. Administrative procedures, quality assessment, negotiations, dispute management... The multiplication of suppliers makes it more complex to identify the right people in charge in case of an incident.

The complexity of service management due to multiple services used encourages the risk of incorrect handling and forces your teams to increase their skills with each new service.

Intelligent integration of different services is impossible: for example, you cannot use the WiFi network for VoIP. To make matters worse, WiFi and IoT frequencies end up in an unsupervised competitive situation, inevitably generating interference and a degraded signal.

Solution 2: A single provider for all services

  • Less time wasted on diagnostics and interventions
  • Unified network management for all sites
  • One-stop support for all connectivity issues
  • One central hub to reduce radio interference

No more "back and forth"  between suppliers



Problem 3: Unnecessary energy costs

By multiplying network infrastructures, you inevitably multiply energy consumption and unnecessarily increase the carbon impact of your organisation.

With the increasing consumption of equipment, compounded by ever-rising energy costs, your network's energy bill can no longer be overlooked.

Solution 3: Streamlined consumption for lower bills

    • Less equipment to power = less energy to spend
    • Less equipment to deploy = fewer scarce materials used
    • Fewer interventions on site = less fuel consumed

Example from the residential market: £2,606 of savings per year for a building with 100 units
