It’s undeniable that cloud-based services, telecommunication or otherwise, will be a massive part of the future. Getting ahead of the curve and migrating to the cloud now is a wise investment. That’s not to suggest that the migration won’t be unnerving or challenging. Any process, especially where it requires significant infrastructure changes, will have its headaches. But when you consider that cloud-based telecommunication services offer unparalleled agility, savings and general mass-migration happening across the data industry it makes it worth facing any challenges head on and pushing through to enjoy the benefits. Let’s explore a few tips that can help to mitigate any problems that can arise in the migration process.
1. Assess your current IT landscape
As a first step in migrating to cloud-based telecommunications services, it’s paramount to get a current snapshot of the infrastructure you have in place. Which aspects of your cabling need upgrading and which are cloud-ready? We’d recommend doing in-house reconnaissance and then working with a cabling solutions expert to identify any gaps your team might not have considered. Whether you’re wanting to migrate entirely or just create more space for cloud-based services to remain current in the telecommunications industry, transitioning to cloud-based operations is something we work with day in day out. We can help.
2. You’ll need more data
If there’s one thing that can be said about the cloud, it’s data-hungry. For the highest quality cloud-based telecommunications services you’ll likely need to substantially increase your data capacity. Ensure you choose good quality data cabling solutions that are reliable, forward thinking and focus on high-density delivery.
3. Futureproof your services
Many companies fail to think far enough into the future when it comes to any kind of telecommunications infrastructure let alone cloud-based services. Choosing solutions that offer you the possibility for growth and development is fundamental to ensure no headaches pop up further down the line. This is why it’s always best to engage experts who can guide you on industry standards and what you need to do to ensure you stay ahead of the curve.
