Enterprises face a tough challenge to manage different contracts and schedules, service terms, operations processes and support options when transforming and building enterprise networks.
According to Brian Washburn, Research Director Omdia, “A primary reason for enterprises to consider Internet aggregators is to have the freedom to choose among many ISPs, to build enterprise network segments with Internet VPNs. To use public Internet for corporate traffic, the enterprise needs a level of information insight, management control and basic accountability over its subscribed Internet services. Few enterprises like the idea of buying from a long list of ISPs directly.
"The enterprise would need to manage different contracts and schedules, service terms, operations processes and support options. Choosing an Internet aggregator puts one partner in charge of supplying services from other Internet providers and manages relationships on its behalf.”
