High-level network design and implementation is complex and highly specialised. BestPath help businesses successfully navigate their way through this tricky landscape.
Designing and building powerful network solutions for demanding corporate and government clients can be taxing. It’s a sophisticated, consultative process, combining many moving parts and variables, with no two networks ever being truly the same.
The organisations that shine brightest in this field tend to be those that push beyond the basic processes, innovating fresh approaches to getting the task done quickly and effectively. BestPath have taken this idea to a whole new level, deploying a bleeding-edge tech lab for concept testing, shakedowns, and real-world client demos.
So how do you leverage the very latest networking technology in such a flexible and constantly evolving manner? Elevating the capabilities of this lab environment through deployment in a world-class data centre is just the first piece of the puzzle. You’ll also need uncompromising access to top-class engineers that can help get physical adjustments handled for you, 24x7.
BestPath came to Netwise in late 2019 with a relatively unique problem. They wanted to place their cutting-edge lab environment in a data centre, but were previously unable to find an operator that could properly support such a flexible, ever-changing workload.
Having engaged closely with the BestPath engineering team to better understand exactly what would be needed, we were able to come up with a colocation proposal that effectively took advantage of our month-to-month service flex options. This includes both power and bandwidth, scaling up and down as required, depending on lab utilisation.
This flexible approach to colocation allowed BestPath to deploy their world-class testing, automation and demo platform inside our London Central facility, enjoying lab-level convenience paired with robust data centre resilience.
We were also able to assist BestPath with the deployment of their hardware, given that this arrived with us during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our engineers were able to take direct delivery of the hardware, deploying this in their enclosures along with all structured cabling.
Placing this system in our facility also provides BestPath with direct round-the-clock access to our in-house engineering and technical support team. This enables rapid collaborative working methodologies on new projects, as complex adjustments to the lab setup can be handled remotely.
BestPath are a joy to work with, not only because of their clear technical know-how, but also because of their passion for top-down innovation. This rings true of our own operation and forms a major part of why we’re so excited to see this relationship flourish over the coming years.
