Fast movers Easynet connect businesses in 48 hours

Companies can now respond quickly to exploit changing market opportunities with new access products

London, 14th November 2012 - An agile business that can adapt quickly to change has a major competitive advantage. Seasonal fluctuations, pop-up stores, temporary locations, sites without fixed communications, recruitment drives, sales and corporate events all threaten a company's agility and put huge pressure on its corporate network. Easynet Global Services has developed a solution to remove this pressure with its new range of Rapid Deployment access services, which can connect customers or provide network back-up to their corporate MPLS network in as little as two days using either DSL or 3G access.

Businesses wanting to connect sites to their network at short notice, use a quick and easy back-up solution or give themselves peace of mind by insuring themselves against an outage can do so by selecting the most appropriate of six different Easynet solutions*. These are Rapid ADSL/VDSL, Rapid IPSec, Rapid 3G Back-Up, Rapid 3G Flex, Rapid 3G and Easynet Assure. The service comes with the same advanced feature set as Easynet's other MPLS services, coupled with a full proactive management service wrap, meaning a customer can fully rely on the solution for temporary or business critical requirements.

Justin Fielder, Easynet's CTO said: "To gain a competitive edge businesses need to have the ability to act swiftly to exploit new opportunities. Long installation times and expensive back up costs from other service providers are frustrating and hugely prohibitive. We've developed Rapid Deployment in direct response to our customers' needs: now they have both the agility and ability to outshine the competition".
