Connecting to Evolve IP’s services anywhere is simple. In order to support Work Anywhere scenarios for our customers, we offer four ways to connect to Evolve IP’s Virtual Private Cloud.
The Evolved Network
The Evolved Network provides businesses a better way to buy and manage Wide-Area Network and Internet services while delivering a secure and quality means to access Evolve IP’s cloud services.
The Evolved Network offers a carrier diverse, layer 3 MPLS network which is provided and supported by Evolve IP. This service level mitigates the difficulties that customers typically have managing carriers, equipment, and classes of service by combining physical networks, routers, management, maintenance, and monitoring into a simple service.
Evolve Connect is a carrier meet-me service that enables our customers to utilize the carrier of their choice for connectivity to the Evolve IP Cloud. Customers can order and connect into the Evolve IP cloud via layer 1 access facilities to Evolve IP’s access hub.
Evolve Connect provides flexibility in your carrier negotiations while enabling a private connection to Evolve IP and supporting Quality of Service (QOS). While our customers maintain a direct relationship with their carrier, Evolve IP can monitor and manage your network endpoints and call the carrier on your behalf in the event of an issue*.
Cloud Connect combines the bandwidth of multiple public connections (from nearly any carrier) into a single, faster, more reliable virtual connection that can be used to securely access Evolve IP’s Cloud, the Internet, or other cloud-based services.
By bonding your multiple connections, Cloud Connect dramatically increases your network speed, increases reliability with automatic failover, provides bi-directional QOS over public networks, provides a cost-effective alternative to MPLS networks.
Public Connect allows remote, home, and mobile workers to connect to Evolve IP services over a public Internet connection. This provides total flexibility and portability for Work Anywhere scenarios. As with all services provided over the Public Internet, Quality of Service is subject to local conditions and quality of the bandwidth. Offices can deploy a local gateway to assist in firewall transversal and traffic queuing to smooth out the ebbs and flows of public traffic. Public access may also be leveraged as a backup strategy for Evolved Network and Evolve Connect locations with Evolve IP continuity services.

*Monitoring and Management of customer network access is an optional service and is sometimes dependent on the carrier and products installed. Additional charges will apply for Evolve IP to manage customer network
** QOS depends on the quality and quantity of available public connections
