Continuing our regular series on how different businesses are leveraging our technology

Virtutel is a Full Service Domestic and International Telecommunications provider of Private Network, Internet, Colocation and Voice services targeted at Business, Enterprise and Government, distributed through our Partner and Wholesale Channels.

Our services are specifically specialised for System Integrators, IT Consultants and Managed Service Providers by providing them with a complete outsourced and White Label Wholesale IP MPLS Data and Voice solution without having to invest in the equipment, staff and know-how of running such a network.

Our Customers usually have equipment spread across multiple Data Centre locations and not only want to get services from different DCs however have the ability to connect to multiple tail carriers or On-Net IP Telephony through us for a best of breed solution. Being able to dynamically add/remove links and increase bandwidth between DC’s and Cloud Providers into a customer network for their end-user provides not only a financial and cost of equipment saving, however a time saving as well.

Megaport has allowed for Virtutel to expand the reach of our product set, be it with the provision of Layer 2, IP Transit, IP VPN or IP Telephony services to other data centers, quickly and easily either directly for connection to our Wholesale Customers or their end-users to our network.

Megaport has enabled our customers to get up and running within hours instead of weeks or days. In the case of one customer, we were able to get them up and running with IP Transit within 2 hours. It has provided cost savings on expensive Data Centre Cross Connects, links between Data Centres and lock in contracts.
