Ring Services: Maximize Uptime
We use the network to make communication and collaboration as seamless as possible, so that hopefully we don't even see the difference between 'on campus' and 'off campus'.
Walt Magnussen, PhD, Director of Telecommunications , Texas A&M University
Your data is your business. Losing access to it, even for a short time, can disrupt your activities, costing you time, money and possibly customers.
Ring services help keep your company up and running with redundant, cost-effective transport for data, voice and other applications. In the event of a disaster or other disruption, ring services are designed to provide virtually uninterrupted access to your information and applications. They support an array of communications services including long distance, virtual private network, managed internet, business continuity and storage applications.
Ring services can also:
- Help simplify network management by aggregating all your applications on one high-performance network
- Scale easily to meet increased bandwidth demands
- Connect offices across town or across the country
- Connect rings in different cities
Ring services from AT&T can flexibly serve voice and data transport requirements, or more complex capabilities such as business continuity, storage and hosting which could require multiple DWDM wavelengths.
Help protect against disaster
Rings services are an excellent option for industries that cannot afford even short periods of downtime, such as the financial and health-care industries. If a failure occurs, ring services are designed to automatically switch your data to a secondary path within milliseconds. They support nearly all applications, so you can help protect your company and simplify management by aggregating all critical business applications onto one highly reliable and available network.
Tailor your network to your needs
Ring services are flexible and can be scaled quickly and easily to accommodate new applications and new business demands. This allows you to respond faster to changes in the marketplace, and can help give you a competitive edge.
With more than 20 years of experience in ring services, AT&T can help you design and build a redundant architecture tailored to your network-performance needs. Ring services from AT&T are spread across more than 20 vertical markets, with ring designs that range in complexity and size.
