Columbus Business Solutions brings true redundancy to Barbados’ Business Landscape
Everything breaks down eventually. That is a fact of life so there needs to be methods put in place to deal with these eventualities especially in the world of ICT, where millions of investment and profit dollars are at risk, in addition to the brand’s reputation.
Network redundancy is a clean and effective way of achieving the highest levels of availability when things break down. Columbus Business Solutions (CBS) provides true redundancy to its clients as a critical part of its ICT solutions.
“Our business customers, whether small, medium or enterprise, continue to utilize existing configured services with current redundant and diverse design. CBS method of excellence in redundancy is the most effective, highly reliable, and provides meshable paths in today’s data driven environment,” he added.
Dass is referring to CBS’s ability to design and commit to any connectivity solutions that any company requires based on the parent company’s ownership of more than 42,300 kilometers of fully protected, ringed submarine fiber optic network, local operations and networks in multiple Latin American countries. CBS also has interconnection among 42 countries, the latest generation MPLS networks, connectivity with the largest global Internet providers, direct peering with more than 40 of the top content providers in the World and, most importantly, two redundant latest generation 7/24/365 NOCs in different geographic areas of the region.
Because of the multi-points of entry of fibre connectivity through Barbados, it allows for CBS to seamlessly connect people anywhere with high-bandwidth business applications; this includes domestic and international private line services with high bandwidth voice, data and video applications.
“Our core network infrastructure has some unique capabilities for our region, like native support and mitigation features for DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks, and multiple landing points per country allowing us to seamlessly switch routes at the connectivity level without the service to our clients being affected, including the most critical voice and video applications,” Dass added. “On top of the pure connectivity, the ability to quickly and easily duplicate servers allows CBS to meet the demands of unusually heavy workloads. Redundant servers ensure business continuity and increased reliability.”
Clients like Frederic Hoyos, chief executive officer of Lucid Consulting Inc. which provides services like audio and video production, networking, VOIP, data recovery, alarm systems, access control, system integration and more, says his company depends on the stability and reliability of CBS’ network redundancy.
Hoyos noted: “CBS has allowed us to meet and exceed our client’s expectations and reliably deliver our critical services with higher than average cost benefit and reliability we have not seen before in the context of Barbados. Bandwidth for mission critical systems has always been a challenge for us and CBS is our solution.”
