In the world of IT, the term “Layer 1” refers to the physical layer of a company’s network, consisting of the wired and wireless infrastructures supporting all network traffic within the walls of a customer facility. It’s a physical network that has long been overworked and underserviced, and, with new applications continuing to pile on traffic, the physical network has become mission critical. Things like VOIP, Video to the Desktop, IP based security systems, and building automation technology all drive traffic to the physical network. It can be called upon to support hundreds of buildings and thousands of employees across multiple countries and continents. Without it, employees that depend upon their computers, telephones, and other devices, both wired and wireless, including systems that run in the background, could not perform their work. Moreover, these devices and systems are all linked through thousands of critical connections.
Taking on this rapidly growing responsibility is what Beacon does best. Building upon their reputation as a market leader in IT systems design, engineering, and project management, Beacon introduced ITS Managed Services. It allows Beacon to take over the day-to-day management of a company’s entire ITS network, which it now does for some of the biggest enterprise customers in the world. Through this service, Beacon handles all service dispatch for network infrastructure related moves, adds, changes, and disconnect for virtually any size network and customer, skillfully managing all of the connections, cables, jacks, and pathways that make everything work.
ITS Managed Services does more than simply remove a major headache from global clients. By outsourcing full responsibility to Beacon, clients are able to operate more efficiently, resulting in a reduced need for IT vendors, better standardization through common technology platforms, and consistent quality control, all implemented using best practices. Current customer experience shows that this can result in savings of 30% or more on IT expenditures.
It’s one of the reasons Beacon has continued to grow revenue and earnings while other companies have had to pull back. Beacon is pursuing contract opportunities in North America and Europe, as well as the Middle East and Latin America.
