Entanet looks to build on expanding potential for partners with IP VPNs

Dec 10, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Entanet, the channel-focused communications provider, is planning to build on a surge in up-take of IP-based virtual private networks (VPNs) to drive more sales opportunities for its partners. With interest in secure remote connectivity growing fast, the company sees expanding potential for resellers to grow their sales, with deals that can range from around 30,000 per annum up to seven-figure sums over a three-year contract period.

VPNs are becoming increasingly popular as more businesses look to set up secure private networks over which financial transactions can be conducted and confidential and private information transmitted safely. This is advisable for companies that need to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) guidelines and to enable the growing number of mobile workers.

The opportunities here are excellent, says Stephen Barclay, Entanets Head of Sales, particularly for Entanets partners. The market for IP VPNs is growing fast and with typical set-ups starting at around 30,000 and reaching as much as 2 million over three-years, the potential to do good business is very real and that is especially true for Entanet partners, since they can offer customers something different. As we have our own nationwide MPLS network, customers only need one break-out connection, which makes it much easier to control what flows in and out of the corporate network. Thats much simpler for IT managers and administrators it is also very secure and very cost-effective.

Entanet has seen its IP VPN business grow by around 200 percent in the past two years and Barclay expects the impetus to continue. This is high value business and there are plenty of good opportunities that are simply waiting to be uncovered. Our proposition is effective for the customer and profitable for the partner we are encouraging them to get involved and take it to market.

The companys IP VPN solutions provide secure connections between multiple sites and remote workers using differing access technologies, such as high-speed Ethernet circuits, leased lines, EFM and broadband. The company makes use of its nationwide next-generation MPLS network as the platform for private VPNs, offering support for centralised Internet access, firewall-to-firewall VPN tunnelling between users, QoS for voice traffic and prioritisation for specific traffic types, such as video.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
