Paratus Botswana: The network provider offering a single point of contact for integrated services

The Paratus Group is thinking big as it expands its footprint to deliver Africa’s quality network. By understanding the unique opportunities that Africa offers for businesses and individuals to break boundaries and connect without limits, Paratus Group is committed to raising the bar in providing quality connectivity in Africa. Below is the company’s value proposition, as a single, integrated service provider.

A simple solution for the new standard

Several service providers are no longer practical for quality connectivity. As the global health crisis abounds, businesses must now rethink their connectivity to be flexible, secure and efficient. This is essential if they are to continue, indefinitely, to be able to conduct their business as usual, when unusual conditions prevail. Today’s solutions must consider several elements including remote working, data storage and information security, all of which can be compromised when there are multiple service providers.

The cost, complication, and complexity involved in managing multiple vendors are further compounded by the need for a remote, secure, and risk-free service that delivers fast turnaround time and uninterrupted connectivity for anyone working for an organization. , no matter where it is.

Shawn Bruwer from Paratus Botswana says businesses today need to think differently on many levels. “We have multiple corporate clients who see the value to their business from a single service provider because they have a single point of contact, full accountability and a set of guarantees that would be impossible to provide. ‘get with multiple service providers. Paratus provides network, voice and cloud services, and offers consulting services to create unique customer solutions. “

When considering an independent network, one must ensure that it guarantees sufficient capacity on several diverse routes to accommodate a multitude of services from a single network – a secure network and supported by a robust infrastructure to guarantee the availability.

How Can One Network Provider Help Businesses Stay in Control?

  • Risk. Businesses believe that redundancy is achieved when you appoint different service providers to provide backup connectivity, only to realize that the same infrastructure is shared between them. A network provider like Paratus, which owns and manages its own infrastructure and thanks to its wide and diverse network routing, will allow companies to enjoy an “always on” connection with guaranteed availability.
  • Security. Too many providers who have access to the same network present a significant security risk. Having a dedicated network provider allows a business to have a single point of contact and a managed secure solution.
  • Complexity and control. The frustration of finding the root cause of a network problem can cost a business time and money when multiple service providers are going around in circles, thus avoiding ownership of network faults, resulting in a delay in resolution.
  • Optimized network management. An expert network provider who manages a company’s entire network portfolio can assess the performance of individual network elements and provide recommendations that will improve connectivity. Paratus can handle switching between different media to ensure there is no disruption, which is not easy to achieve when using multiple providers.
  • Economy. Several service providers each bill for their services as if theirs were the primary service, driving up network costs at a time when every penny counts. Using a single vendor, such as Paratus, allows a business to keep secondary or redundant services on hold fees, providing savings on the bottom line.

Bruwer adds: “Your network is the lifeline of your business – it is a basic service that is essential to the success of the business. It matters; and that’s why we offer a range of solutions including internet, cloud hosting, voice and satellite solutions, structured cabling and Wi-Fi, as well as expert support. We ensure that the network is efficient so that our clients are effectively supported in their activities.

Paratus independently manages fiber and microwave rings and has a mesh network, resulting in money back guarantees and uptimes approaching five nine.

Paratus guarantees its customers that there are no single points of failure, as Paratus owns the infrastructure and ensures seamless integration between different services.

“We have clients ranging from banks and listed companies to small businesses who all see the value of a single service provider,” says Bruwer. “They are reaping the benefits of depending on a single, reliable supplier for all of their needs. Realizing that their systems are outdated and inefficient, seeing the problems with dealing with many over-promising service providers and their associated contracts, our customers are not only happily and reliably connected, but they are also able to keep up with each other. focus fully on their core business. with confidence. “
