VPN Supreme at main site
The main site access is based on standard VPN Supreme access which is giving you the ability to customise the access size and service level agreement to suit you business’ exact requirements.
ADSL allows for always-on connectivity which is making home offices possible. With the speed and availability of ADSL you can enjoy all the applications you would normally access in the office.
Telkom WiMAX access can be used in cases where Telkom ADSL is not available. It offers the same user experience as with ADSL.
Should you leave the office on business you can dial into your office network from anywhere in South Africa. You are always only paying for a local call while Telkom picks up the tab for the national component of the phone call. All the Telkom Points of Presence (POPs) are ISDN capable which means you can enjoy a faster service by using an ISDN modem on your portable computer.
Vodacom GPRS and 3G can be used when you are outside a building or if it is your preference to make use of these services. A Corporate APN is used which is connected to Telkom’s SAIX network.
- Take your office with you -
All the applications and resources that you normally use are available to you as if you are in the office. You can use your standard Email client, your safe Internet access through a firewall, company specific applications, access databases and services, and many more.
- Improved efficiency -
You can log into your company network from anywhere in South Africa at any time you need to. If you use the simultaneous voice and data functionality of ADSL you can serve customers from the comfort and safety of your home when it suits you best.
- Fast access -
ADSL supports up to 4Mbps data transfer which is sufficient for large file transfer, data backups and general office administration.
- Savings on Internet access -
You access your company’s web-based application on the company’s Internet usage and not your own. If you do not require your own personal Internet access you can make use of a Telkom ADSL service only without any ISP services.
- Safe Internet access -
If you access the Internet through a firewall or proxy server at your office your company’s portable computer is safeguarded from virus or malware attacks, protecting your company’s information assets.
- Long distance commuting -
It does not matter where you are in South Africa, you can still be in contact for urgent matters like signing off proposals or quotations and responding on important business leads.
- Improved business operations -
Being out of the office will not necessarily interfere with your daily business operations, as remote connectivity is always possible.
- Less stress in traffic -
You can work from home instead of wasting time and fuel on busy highways. If you need to travel to the office you can schedule meetings during off-peak traffic periods. You are also physically safer being in the protection of your home office.
- Personal savings -
You can reduce the amount of times you need to go to the office and in this way save on very expensive fuel costs as well as wear and tear on your vehicle. Our only planet can only gain if you save of fuel which is automatically reducing your carbon footprint.
- Independence -
Some employees are already enjoying freedom by working flexible hours. Mothers can work earlier in mornings and later in the afternoons as there is no need to travel to get work done. Children can then be transported at more convenient times.
