nexVortex Introduces Managed Connect : Improving Ground-to-Cloud Connectivity

Chuck Harris

It was an exciting week at the Channel Partners Conference and Expo show in Washington D.C..  nexVortex announced our Managed Connect (mConnect), a purpose-built SD-WAN solution for small to medium businesses (SMB).

mConnect builds on the growing momentum of nexVortex’s managed services by improving quality, availability, and visibility (QAV) for ground-to-cloud connections for cloud services.

It uses nexVortex’s patent-pending QAV technology to deliver a better cloud experience by managing the customer’s WAN circuits. It does this by improving service resiliency, increasing the connection quality, and providing greater visibility into operations; and, with more efficient management of network resources, operational costs are driven down.

mConnect is fully compatible with nexVortex’s other managed services — Managed SIP Trunking and Managed Hosted Voice. In addition, mConnect provides service protection for third-party, mission-critical cloud services like Microsoft Office 365.

To enable voice services to be delivered with the highest audio quality, the mConnect solution uses multiple strategies including the duplication and recombination of the audio packets across both WAN interfaces and Direct ISP Peering on the nexVortex managed network. Duplicating packets compensates for packet loss in the open internet and produces high-quality calls. This capability was first introduced with nexVortex’s award-winning Managed Hosted Voice service and has now been extended to nexVortex’s Managed SIP service and other cloud services. Direct ISP Peering helps avoid internet congestion at public peering points.

Managed Connect differs from other SD-WAN solutions because it puts the power of choice into the hands of the small to medium business owner. Other SD-WAN solutions pull all traffic headed to the cloud into the vendor’s data centers for handling — and charge for the bandwidth needed to do so. mConnect allows the business owner to choose which specific applications (“protected services”), they want to be carried with the highest level of performance while allowing all others to simply flow over the public internet.
