- Huntingdon-based IT services provider expands home working and communications offering for customers
- ISC deploys more bandwidth as it prepare for growth Business continuity takes away IT fears for local firms

Managed services provider ISC Networks has chosen ntl:Telewest Business, part of the Virgin Media group, to enhance the company’s IT services offering to its growing number of customers. ntl:Telewest Business has provisioned increased internet connectivity to enable ISC Networks to cater for the demand for data capacity.

Huntingdon-based ISC Networks has over 1,000 customers across the UK and Ireland and offers a wide range of IT services, which means it must be ahead of the competition by deploying the best modern communications technology to ensure a smooth, resilient and flexible service.

ISC Networks is deploying ntl:Telewest Business’ internet protocol virtual private network (IPVPN) technology, enabling its customers to access corporate data securely from anywhere in the world. This allows companies to engage in remote working and increase efficiency.

With business continuity becoming an increasingly popular option for organisations, ISC Networks required higher bandwidth to support its purpose built state of the art Hosting Centre. The deployment of ntl:Telewest Business’ National Ethernet technology will also make services more resilient and easier to manage.

“For many companies of all sizes, the challenge is how to deploy the best technology with expert support in a secure environment. Many lack the IT skills and the budget to handle the more demanding aspects of IT and that’s where specialists like ISC come in,” said Lawrence Pledger, Business Development Manager for ISC Networks. “Being able to offer our customers more choice – from flexible broadband to disaster recovery services – means we continue to better serve them and further improve our competitive edge in a crowded market.”

Gerry Arthurs, regional sales manager for ntl:Telewest Business in the South East, said; “In modern business network speed and reliability of delivery can make the difference between success and failure. All the elements that ISC Networks offers – disaster recovery, faster and more efficient communications, remote working tools and storage capabilities – are critical to business success.“
