6 6 ncloud Ethernet Looking for high bandwidth for your business applications, but afraid to trust your mission critical lifeline to the giant cable companies? ncloud Ethernet is a business grade data connection that gives you a direct line to NetCarrier s network and low latency for your internet and voice services. Don t trust your business to cheap connections with muddy Service Level Agreements. Stay fast, efficient, and secure with ncloud Ethernet. Copper-based Ethernet from the edge of our network to your business Speeds of up to 20Mbps with loop redundancy for increased uptime No equipment to buy ncloud Ethernet Plus High-speed Ethernet is a requirement for many business applications and as the existing copper infrastructure ages, it is being replaced by high-capacity fiber optic networks that are ready to support the next generation of businesses. ncloud Ethernet Plus is your all-access gateway to the ncloud suite of products. When doctors need to share high-res images between offices or when banks require a secure, reliable connection for financial transactions, they depend on ncloud Ethernet Plus. Dedicated fiber optic circuits built directly to your business, available in point-topoint or ring topologies Speeds from 10Mbps up to 1Gbps Eliminate deteriorating copper infrastructure and gain peace of mind No equipment to buy ncloud Ethernet Private Line The shortest path between two points is a straight (private) line, so why complicate it? ncloud Ethernet Private Line extends your LAN for miles so that two offices can interact as one common network; sharing files, applications, real time data, and phone systems. This is a low-latency, dedicated connection that is far superior to best-effort VPN solutions. Speeds from 10Mbps up to 10Gbps Bandwidth is dedicated and guaranteed If you need to connect more than two locations, our ncloud MPLS product provides a scalable, cost-effective solution for larger multi-site networks. Contact your NetCarrier sales team to see if ncloud Ethernet Private Line is a good fit for your business.
7 7 ncloud Survive The Wide Area Network (WAN) is the most vulnerable part of any customer s network. It s the segment that spans out over telephone poles and through underground conduits, which exposes it to the elements and other dangers. As more and more companies move their applications in to the cloud, the WAN connections become increasingly more important for the core functions of their businesses. ncloud Survive provides redundancy between multiple WAN connections to ensure that a circuit outage doesn t affect operations. NetCarrier s design utilizes constant link monitoring, dynamic VoIP routing, and core-to-edge router peering to ensure an immediate and smooth transition between connections. NetCarrier recognizes that when a phone call drops, it affects a company s reputation and bottom line. With ncloud Survive Voice, phone calls remain connected through network outages. For customers who do not have NetCarrier voice and data, ncloud Survive Standalone works with other providers connections and still provides automatic failover and security for a customer s network with monitoring and notification in the event of outages. ncloud Survive configuration options: ncloud Survive Standalone automatic data failover for non-netcarrier Internet connections; includes an enterprise-grade firewall for network security. Choose from two options: Basic receive notifications when a connection is down Plus receive and phone notification when a connection is down, plus NetCarrier will contact your other carriers to resolve outages ncloud Survive Data redundant Internet routing and enterprise-grade firewall for customers who have at least one NetCarrier-provided Internet connection ncloud Survive Voice - redundant routing for Teleflex, SIP, and ncloud PBX voice services ncloud Survive Voice & Data - combination of voice and internet redundancy ncloud Survive MPLS - pairs with our MPLS product to route interoffice traffic over a secondary connection between offices, such as a VPN Need more than one backup link? We can provide redundant routing between up to three separate circuits All circuits are monitored by our 24/7/365 Network Operations Center, so even though an outage may not be noticed by users, NetCarrier will notify the appropriate contacts and resolve the problem.
8 8 ncloud MPLS MPLS is used to create private, secure networks between multiple locations. In the past, a point-to-point circuit between offices or a Frame Relay network might have suited your needs, but those technologies have not scaled to handle today's business applications and high-bandwidth requirements. MPLS is the evolution of the interoffice network. If your business has multiple offices or facilities that share files, applications, or phone systems, then MPLS might be a good fit for you. Benefits of MPLS Full mesh interoffice network with no single point of failure Local circuit for each location no expensive long-haul PTP circuits Private and secure "closed user group" for each customer compliant for financial and medical industries Built on a fully redundant network more uptime than PTP circuits Convergence of voice, video, applications, and Internet access cost savings for customer Scalable easy to add locations to existing MPLS network Fully managed traffic routing between sites Can be layered with other products, such as Teleflex, ncloud PBX, and ncloud Survive QoS for superior quality with latency-sensitive services, such as voice and video We provide three default levels of QoS through our MPLS network 1. Real time traffic (VoIP and video) is highest priority 2. Interoffice data (shared applications, backups, etc.) is second priority 3. Internet traffic and anything that is unrecognized is lowest priority
9 9 ncloud Exchange ncloud Exchange provides businesses of any size the opportunity to put expensive server upgrades and unpredictable system crashes behind them. We offer a full-featured Exchange server that is hosted and maintained by Netcarrier, which means no more concerns about network or power stability affecting your Exchange applications. Whether you're migrating from an existing Exchange server or setting up Exchange for the first time, our portal has extensive guides and step-by-step instructions to make your migration process simple and quick. Rich with Features: Options of 5GB and 25GB mailbox sizes per user McAfee Spam Filtering included ActiveSync for mobile devices Microsoft Outlook licenses and software (optional) Loaded with Customizable Options: Blackberry Enterprise Server Message Continuity Resource Mailboxes Archiving Multiple domains Sharepoint sites for collaboration
10 10 Colocation We can host your servers, phone system, and more within our carrier-class data centers in Pennsauken, NJ and Lansdale, PA, eliminating the high cost of security and infrastructure at your facility. If you need more bandwidth or an additional connection, our routers and switches are within the same building, so install times are shorter and costs are lower. Uptime and Security Access to our facilities is monitored 24/7 and secured with locked entrances and alarm systems. Permitted staff members are screened with background checks and drug testing All buildings are directly fed by multiple high-tension electrical substations with auto-transfer switches for immediate power shifting in the case of a grid failure In the case of a power grid failure, each of our buildings is backed up by a generator Facilities are cooled by industrial HVAC units and protected by fire suppression systems Product Options Cabinets & Rackspace Shared cabinet space One-third cabinet (Lansdale only) and half cabinet Full cabinet Cage space available by request UPS battery backup for power conditioning Bandwidth up to 1Gbps Port and Cross-Connect Types Ethernet T1 Fiber Voice Options SIP, PRI, and CAS/Digital trunking Analog lines (FXS/FXO)
11 11 Teleflex Product Suite NetCarrier has been pioneering the successful deployment of VoIP since the late 1990s. Teleflex was our first VoIP product and remains a popular and reliable option for dynamic voice and data. By dynamically allocating bandwidth to voice and data traffic on the same connection, NetCarrier can improve utilization and make use of bandwidth that you're paying for every month, but not always using. The Teleflex Base Package includes the following: A variety of delivery options, compatible with virtually any traditional or IP phone system: o Analog/POTS o Digital CAS o PRI o SIP A variety of access options o T1 1.5MB Dedicated Access o ncloud Ethernet up to 20MB Dedicated Access o ncloud Ethernet Plus up to 100MB Dedicated Access o Broadband shared network speeds up to 100MB delivered by the local Cable provider o Customer Provided Access Have a high speed connection already? NetCarrier can install Teleflex over most broadband connections. IAD included One directory listing Touch tone, hunting, 900 blocking and 976 restriction features Any four optional line features Unlimited Local Calling Bundled long distance and inbound toll free options Complimentary basic web and hosting Traditional Voice Services NetCarrier provides traditional and innovative next-generation voice communications services to businesses of all sizes. Whether you re a small business with a few employees or a big corporation with hundreds, NetCarrier will make sure you get the best solution to fit your company s needs. ISDN PRI NetCarrier s ISDN PRI product is an ideal voice solution for medium to large business that require more than a few simultaneous phone calls. PRI technology has been tested by time
12 12 and proven by the industry. It is a flexible solution which can be tailored to meet any company s needs with the following three configurations: Fractional Configuration The Fractional Configuration can provide 8 or 16 B channels along with the standard D channel. This option is for customers who do not require a full PRI, but still want the benefits of PRI trunking technology. Standard Configuration The Standard Configuration provides 23 B channels and 1 D channel. While each B channel carries digital voice traffic, the D channel carries the signaling required for call setup and management over the PRI. This will allow for 23 simultaneous phone calls. Bonded PRI and NFAS Configurations Some businesses require more than 23 simultaneous PRI calls, but they still need all calls to come in to the same phone system. In those cases, NetCarrier can bond multiple PRIs together and configure them as a common trunk group. For larger configurations PRIs, we also offer NFAS, which allows three or more PRIs to share two D channels and allocate a full 24 B channels for voice on the remaining PRIs. Digital T1 (CAS) NetCarrier s Digital T1 service interfaces directly with your company s PBX to provide up to 24 voice lines through a single connection. This voice service can be delivered as voiceonly or as dynamic through our Teleflex product. In addition to providing up to 24 voice channels, the Digital T1 solution includes local, IntraLATA, long distance, international and toll-free calling. Per-minutes rates are based on volume and are discounted accordingly. The more you use, the more you save. Copper Advantage Lines NetCarrier s Copper Advantage product is targeted towards businesses who seek a simple line solution for modem, alarm, elevator, and backup lines at per line charges. Our Copper Advantage product is also ideal as backup lines to your primary voice service.
