The diagram above shows our approach to simultaneously reducing cost, whilst improving reliability, quality and performance.
Core2Africa’s philosophy to taking on the challenge of reducing the total cost of ownership whilst improving network performance and reliability is to evolve the environment into a structured and modular, converged services environment with well-defined roles and responsibilities of the various network components. In order to achieve this, the following are the major activities that take place, namely:
Convergence: This is the process of consolidating multiple disparate, packet-based environments into a single seamless network infrastructure
Consolidation: This is the process of eliminating duplicate components in the network in order to improve the total cost of ownership and reliability and reduce the complexity of management
Simplification: This is the process of streamlining the underlying network complexity and eliminating complex, inefficient interfaces and configurations. Key to this is to develop standardized and structured methods of deploying services
Automation: This entails the use of systems to perform common, repetitive and tedious tasks that are often prone to human error
