Why Global Private Networks Win at Direct Connectivity and IoT Future Proofing
Whether a network is public or private, there are a variety of forces at work going on behind every action a user sees on the screen. Eze Castle Integration has been experimenting with and improving upon these forces to offer our clients better network connectivity. Here are three reasons your firm should consider upgrading to a global private network.
Internet of Things (IoT)
As more professional devices debut on the market, financial and investment management firms need to consider if their network can handle the influx of appliances on their network. The Internet of Things has already started to cause IP depletion, and the problem is only likely to get worse. While it is possible to complete an overlay on a network to upgrade it to a different numbering sequence with more space (e.g., IPV 6), the migration strategy is slow and not particularly practical. A private network, on the other hand, doesn't have the same constraints as a traditional network. Firms won't lose valuable seconds due to additional hardware taking up limited bandwidth.
Direct Peering & Connections
Peering refers to the point of connection between two separate autonomous systems. In the case of Eze Castle, this may refer to one of our clients or to a general content provider (e.g., Microsoft, Bloomberg, etc.) We have established operational control over traffic flow, which means that our clients connect directly to their destination. Ultimately, this translates into faster, smoother, more predictable communication between the systems. This is pivotal for a financial professional to have regardless of whether they're in the office or on the other side of the world.
The Eze Private Network Advantage
Traditional internet circuits offer a limited range of benefits, which leads to a limited range of services and functionality. With Eze, financial and investment management firms enjoy direct connectivity to private financial networks like SunGard and Bloomberg. It's these private peering networks that make us so relevant to the financial industry. So if a user is having trouble connecting to a network for whatever reason, they don't have to open up a ticket with their general internet carrier. At Eze Castle we already have the personal relationships needed to solve the problem as quickly as possible, which can vastly minimize the negative consequences of inevitable network delays and disruptions.
