Is your WAN 21CN Compliant?

The Corbel Blog

21CN (21st Century Network) Services are on average 48% cheaper than their 20CN (20th Century Network) Counterparts!

Corbel Limited, (Part of Getech Limited, who won the prestigious BT IT Reseller of the year award 2013), can offer you specialist help to verify your 21CN (Next Generation Network) compliance.  If you don’t have the time or resource to carry out a 21CN compliance audit yourself, Corbel can help!  We are offering UK businesses a no-obligations 21CN WAN compliance audit.   It is important to review your infrastructure now and this could take less than one hour of your time.

The Corbel 21CN WAN audit is provided to businesses free-of-charge and the audit process includes:

– Analysis of the WAN infrastructure to understand current network topology, enumerate WAN sites and identify port and bearer speeds for each circuit.
– Understanding of class of service settings (where applicable) for all existing WAN circuits.
– Review of annual rentals on all WAN circuits.
– Production of an inventory of potential 20CN services within the current infrastructure and association of each service with its corresponding retirement date for risk analysis.
– Discussion of preliminary findings and, where appropriate, presentation of options for replacing 20CN services along with initial feedback on savings opportunities available within the infrastructure.

Where non-compliance with 21CN standards is found, we’ll give you a detailed breakdown of the areas you need to address, along with a range of costed options for implementing any changes, if appropriate. We’ll also make you aware of any cost-saving opportunities available to you by migrating to 21CN circuits.  Detailed below are the end of life guidelines for current 20CN circuits by product;-
