Wi-Manx Invest to Launch ‘Converged Connectivity’

Wi-Manx have announced the investment of £600,000 into their state of the art data centre and network to launch Converged Connectivity to island businesses.

The launch of the converged proposition is the culmination of a six-month product development and investment project to enhance existing services and launch new technologies.

The developments and investment bring island businesses access to a new private cloud platform, enterprise SIP and a whole new suite of back up and disaster recovery products to protect businesses from downtime.

Kate Hegarty, Director at Wi-Manx explains.

“Our converged connectivity allows businesses to use a single network to provide several communication services that traditionally required separate networks. Converged connectivity is all managed under one roof – it’s easy and cost effective.”

Wi-Manx are now delivering internet, voice, security, back-up, MPLS, cloud services and colocation– all through one single Wi-Manx connection. This brings numerous benefits to island businesses looking to pivot away from legacy telecoms infrastructure and get more from their connectivity provider and more value per megabyte.

Investments have been made into the Wi-Manx core network to enhance SIP and a significant investment was made in the new Tegile storage platform for Private Cloud, making Wi-Manx the only Tegile technology partner on the island.

With the ever increasing demand for fast, reliable and secure data storage, Wi-Manx needed a storage solution that could complement its existing network architecture while addressing the long term capacity, performance and scalability requirements demanded of its data hosting and cloud computing customers.

Tegile’s award-winning technology solutions enables businesses to better address the requirements of private cloud solutions, virtual desktop infrastructure and database/application integration than other offerings. Featuring a wide range of storage protocols, Tegile arrays are easy-to-use, fully redundant, and highly scalable. They come complete with built-in 256-bit encryption, auto-replication, near-instant recovery, onsite or offsite failover, and virtualization management features.

The Wi-Manx investment means that island businesses can now take advantage of dynamic on demand storage to compliment a varied range of hosting platforms, support for Citrix, VM Ware – and Microsoft is built into the platform as standard.

Wi-Manx, which was acquired by Elite Comms Group in 2014 has recently honed and strengthened its B2B proposition, investing in the expansion of the core network and a London data centre.
Wi-Manx are already serving hundreds of island businesses via our flagship data centre in the Isle of Man.

Kate continues: “Choosing Wi-Manx connectivity is the first step on the path to converging your business communications and technology, once your dedicated enhanced internet is provisioned, our expert team will be ready to deploy additional services over your connection as your requirements expand. We are pleased to be bringing island businesses the capacity, performance and cost effectiveness they need without the investment and management challenges required from legacy equipment.

“The investment is a reaction to the growing demands of island businesses today. It falls perfectly in-line with our philosophy as being the island’s innovative and agile communications company and this investment is a testament to our proposition as we expand our grow locally.”
