There has been a momentous shift in the world since 2020. After two years of uncertainties and numerous changed goalposts, companies are finding their footing again.

GTT Communications, Inc. enables enterprises to regain speed by providing them with better communication solutions, advanced technology, and IoT services.

The telecommunications sector is facing various challenges when adapting to the new atmosphere.

As a leading telecom solution provider, GTT Communications extends its services to various industries, including financial services, manufacturing, media and broadcast, and retail and eCommerce. In today’s digital age, scalability is essential for every organization.

In the telecommunications industry, we are all commoditized. Our products don’t differ from one another, so it’s all somewhat at parity. Where we feel we will differentiate ourselves is the level of our customer care,” said Ernie Ortega, CEO of GTT Communications, Inc.

With its wide area networking services, GTT provides advanced SD-WAN that controls and manages traffic to transform WAN. The MPLS solution optimizes performance and protection through end-to-end SLAs for high performance and network security for global operations. GTT’s VPLS tool extends the network across multiple locations and enables complete control over traffic routing.

GTT’s network uses diverse and non-redundant fiber paths between all PoP locations, building a resilient and reliable connection. MPLS traffic engineering chooses a direct and low-latency route to accelerate operations and deliver an exceptional end-user experience that automatically redirects traffic. Bandwidth restraints have always been a challenge to overcome for organizations. GTT’s flat-rate billing and burstable ports give diverse bandwidth options, such as an aggregate committed data rates plan that enables bandwidth sharing across ports.

In addition to wide area network, GTT Communications provides a secure network. Predicting security threats ahead of time allows companies to equip themselves with the best elimination tools. GTT offers protection through multi-layered security and detailed packages that build a secure infrastructure and combat identified and potential threats. With its team of four (SASE, DDoS Mitigation, Managed Firewall, and Managed Detection and Response), GTT ensures its clients conduct their operations safely.

Fast and interrupted internet speed has become a necessity. GTT’s AS3257, a top-ranked Tier 1 IP network, delivers the fastest and most reliable internet navigation. It provides organizations with the scalability and secure network connections required to maintain their global presence. With its IP network, GTT guarantees excellent performance. The company’s IP network transports over fourteen terabytes of traffic at any time.

As an industry leader, GTT Communications deploys and supports IPv6 networking. Its hundred percent native dual-stack network uses carrier-class routing and infrastructure to deliver line-rate IPv6 performance to all PoPs. It also ensures IPv6 functions seamlessly with IPv4 services without additional charges.

With over two decades of expertise, GTT understands the need for real-time monitoring. It allows organizations to track real-time data, view order status and billing, and monitor network status through its EtherVision portal.

The current telecom culture demands hybrid work modes. To build a sustainable hybrid system, organizations require high-quality cloud services backed by high bandwidth, low latency, and secure private networks. GTT’s hybrid cloud services support public and private clouds that provide integration across other clouds globally.

GTT’s Advanced Solutions portfolio also consists of advanced security that provides cloud and on-premises regulatory-compliant security and advanced services that manage professional services, such as networking, computing, and application infrastructure.
