Internet Access

(Fiber, DSL or LTE/4G)

ElastaLink provides nationwide Internet access, partnering with major national carriers and leveraging their physical network infrastructure. These multiple partnerships give you added redundancy. Each client location is connected to our Canadian data centres, and from there to multiple Internet backbones. Furthermore, each connection is dedicated and private, fully managed and monitored for technical problems by ElastaLink.

  • Variety of access types and speed…

  • …to optimize solutions for your requirements and locations.

Dedicated Internet access with premium SLA’s.

Wired connections are available from DSL/FTTN with up to 50Mb download for small sites, to fibre with 10Mb up to 1000Mb for larger sites. Wireless LTE is available and is best suited for mobile locations or as a backup connection. All connections, including wireless accesses, are delivered as private connections to our data centre. If an access fails at one location, the backup connection will be seamlessly activated while critical traffic is rerouted. This ensures business continuity in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Key differentiators when compared to traditional Internet service providers:

Connection Types

We offer a vast variety of access types and speeds to meet all your requirements at all your locations. Wired connections are available from DSL/FTTN with up to 50Mb download for small sites, with fibre up to 10Mb and up to 1000Mb for larger sites. Wireless LTE is available and is best suited for mobile locations or as a backup connection. All connections, including wireless, are delivered as private connections to our data centre. If an access fails at one location, the backup connection will be seamlessly activated while critical traffic is rerouted. This ensures business communications, uninterrupted.

Redundancy

Maintaining a constant connection is critical for businesses of every size. With our unique solution, we provide redundancy on several levels. We can install a redundant single or dual end device for your service. The device offers optional backup power supply and built-in UPS/battery allowing for graceful shutdown in case of power outage with no data loss. Using our two redundant data centres, your device can be connected to either one, over a primary connection that can seamlessly failover to our backup connection. All this while still maintaining established connections and static IP addresses, so no interruptions. Data centres themselves offer another layer of redundancy with connectivity to a diverse backbone and Internet transit carriers.

Monitoring, Notification and Management

We provide fully managed service with Monitoring, Notification and Management of the connections at every one of your sites. With continuous monitoring support notifications are automatically created in cases such as loss of connection or unusual bandwidth usage. This allows us to respond immediately before the problem significantly impacts your business. The tools also generate monthly usage reports, providing you with an understanding of network utilization and enabling proactive capacity planning ensuring all your sites have sufficient bandwidth.

MPLS and Class of service

Benefits of MPLS, such as sub millisecond rerouting, traffic prioritization and low latency of any connectivity have long been recognized as valuable features. By partnering with leading national carriers, we utilize MPLS in our network core. This ensures low latency of connections to our data centre and adds to the already extensive redundancy of our Internet connections. All of this ensures superior service to your business.

Local and Hosted Security

Traditionally, businesses have deployed a separate firewall to protect Internet connections. With increased bandwidth and an ever-increasing number of hacking and malware attacks, local firewalls may not have enough CPU and memory resources to handle attacks, and legitimate traffic, causing short network outages. To address this, we provide a hosted firewall in addition to the firewall within our customer site device. Hosted firewalls ensure a large number of attacks are blocked in our data centre before they reach your site…

Future ready IPv6

IPv6 offers the potential to build a much more powerful Internet on a larger scale with more features than what exists today. Organizations have started IPv6 deployment to benefit from more efficient routing and packet processing. IPv6 eliminates the need for Network Address Translation (NAT), a measure that is keeping IPv4 alive. Deploying IPv6 enables true end-to-end connectivity at the IP layer. Peer-to-peer networks are easier to create and maintain and services such as Internet of Things (IoT) and VoIP with Quality of Service (QoS) becoming more robust. ElastaLink’s Internet offering delivers a full stack of IPv4 and IPv6. This model makes your deployment future proof for IPv6 without compromising the functionality of your network today.
