Gain high availability access to Data, Voice and Network with ease
In a KPO | BPO | Contact Center, Datacenter infrastructure consists of its own internal managed services infrastructure and out sourced business customer infrastructure. Their own setup mainly comprises of servers providing services for email, storage, project management and tracking, HRMS to name a few. The customer infrastructure is separated by way of caging. Such cages are isolated from the internal network physically and the Datacenter operations team is common to both the infrastructures. These companies also have a voice setup for routing inbound and outbound calls to service the customer’s end-customer, hence it is critical to maintain high uptime of this setup too.
Common challenges in managing such an infrastructure are
• Centralized management of all setups
• Restricted and secure access to customer cages
• Voice network high availability
• Scalability and future proofing
• Compliances to industry standards
• Adherence to internal and customer SLA’s
• Documentation and Reporting
• IT Workforce Resource Management
