Multivendor

Creating blended Tier 1 solutions

Best in class

Qubic has a multivendor policy. This has two main benefits for our clients. The first is ‘Best in Class’.

Qubic has a diverse range of customers in terms of size, business sector and specific needs; no single vendor has the right product for every situation. Take for example, data switches. For most customers, the manufacturer of the data switches is not very high on their list of priorities but, there are subtle differences that can affect performance, compatibility or security. Qubic carries data switches from both Cisco and HP, two of the world’s leading data switch manufacturers – carrying a product, doesn’t just mean that we buy ‘out-of-a-catalogue’ and ship it on, Qubic has engineers that are fully trained and experienced in the configuration and support of these switches.

This philosophy is repeated across our product portfolio; in terms of telephony we can offer both Mitel and Avaya; for connectivity, we deliver circuits from Vodafone, Level 3 and BT Openreach; for colocation services, we have presence in datacentres provided by Global Switch and Equinix; and so forth.

This multivendor policy gives us a blended best in class range that allows us to design solutions with an open mind rather than being narrowed by the range of a single vendor so we can deliver better, more appropriate solutions.

Resilience

Our multivendor policy delivers resilience. Particularly in the connected world of business, having multivendor provision is becoming more important. Having a single circuit into a building is risky in case the circuit fails – having a backup from the same vendor can help but if that vendor’s core fails or there is an issue with their equipment in the local switch. Having multiple circuits from multiple vendors mitigates that risk.

This is the same with datacentres or relying on Microsoft to store all of your files and emails, we will always be able to provide alternatives to add resilience.
