Le monde des affaires ne dort jamais. Raison pour laquelle les entreprises doivent impérativement disposer d'une connexion réseau continue. Un défaut d'accès au centre de données peut engendrer des couts exorbitants. Voilà pourquoi les entreprises ont investi massivement dans des solutions onéreuses et/ou des protocoles complexes leur assurant une connectivité redondante.
Une nouvelle technologie est désormais disponible : Multi-Link. Cette solution permet d'intégrer toute une série de connexions distinctes (MPLS, câble, satellite, large bande mobile, DLS, WAN, etc.) tout en réduisant sensiblement les coûts d'acquisition et de maintenance.
Nicolas Monier vous présentera les avantages de Multi-Link au cours d'un webcast aussi bref qu'efficace.
