Technology is more and more an essential part of our lives. When we wake up, the first things we do are: turn off the alarm clock, check WhatsApp, emails, check appointments, turn on our favorite podcast or playlist, all this using our smartphone and the internet.
We are so used to this connected reality that not having internet access has become the exception. When we wake up we are connected, when we go to a mall we connect to the Wi-Fi, in the street we use our 3G or LTE, being connected has become the norm.
If we think from the Internet service providers (ISPs) position, providing uninterrupted internet service with high speed and quality has become a prerequisite, something expected as a standard item of the service offered.
This new connected lifestyle is a challenge for the ISPs because their services have become a staple in our daily lives, such as water and electricity, literally a commodity with lots of competitors and few differences between them. The survival of an ISP in this new environment depends on its differentiation from its competitors and the best way to offer a differentiated service is through ‘managed services’.
The solution seems simple, but the challenge to implement managed services in corporate and individual customers is the cost of acquiring specific equipment for each service (Hardware for IPTV, Routing and another for Network Security, etc.) as well as the manpower required to install and configure the equipment at the end client. All this ends up increasing the cost and consequently the sale.
But what would be the solution so that the providers can offer a differentiated and complete portfolio of managed services with flexibility and agility to follow the demands of the market? The solution is to offer these managed services through a platform that does not need dedicated hardware, that is, the set up, management of the products, services and software versions can all be managed remotely, in other words, the solution is the Cloud.
Using a Cloud solution, the possibilities become unlimited.
Providers whose work is limited by hardware and manpower availability for deployment can replace this expensive and outdated business model with a platform that offers a range of products and services enabling their customer to acquire them with just one click, without the need for dedicated hardware for every feature, no maintenance cost, no power consumption and no need for an engineer to do the physical set up.
Analyzing the market's maturation, new demands and consumer trends, it is clear that the way for a provider to remain competitive is to develop an offer products and services using a cloud computing platform. However, this is where we find a great challenge, the technology barrier.
Cloud Computing is an innovative and revolutionary technology, but controlled by a few players who have had the time and resources to develop their own platforms. To solve this issue Binario Cloud brings to the market a solution that enables you, traditional ISPs, to offer products and services through a dynamic, modern and highly efficient platform, The Binario Cloud.
The team of specialized professionals at Binario Cloud has been developing for more than 10 years, The Binario Cloud Operating System (BCOS for short), a platform that enables the implementation of cloud services in any ISP.
With BCOS it is possible for ISPs to offer their cloud service in a scalable way. Beginning with offers of processing, memory and disk so that in any moment it can offer more complex solutions such as, link balancing, firewalls, network monitoring, protection against DDOS attacks, IPTV, IPphone, CCTV and others. The BCOS has the flexibility to adapt to the needs and strategies of each ISP, and can be structured as a public cloud, as a private cloud in client instances or even as a composite service, where it is possible to merge the private cloud environment with the environment of a public cloud, offering what we call the Hybrid cloud.
With our experience in structuring, implementing, supporting and maintaining national and international cloud environments, we offer the security and convenience of a turn-key solution for ISPs who want to enter the cloud world.
What are you waiting for to enter this 4.0 world? Binario Cloud is ready to update you.
