For multinational enterprises and multi-region companies, the success of a cross-region business relies on the integration among multiple offices and branches worldwide. From data transmission to CRM and ERP system integration, an efficient and reliable network is vital for even the most basic business operations.

The Challenges of Building a Cross-Region Network

Low-Speed Data Transmission
The public Internet is not able to support massive data transmission, which may lead to losing customers, decreasing employee productivity, and ultimately end in lost revenue.
Low Availability
Low availability may end in missed opportunities and a higher operating cost. Or worse, loss of data.
High Cost
Building or renting data centers and submarine fiber cables requires a tremendous amount of capital expenditure and maintenance cost.
Complex Deployment
Complicated network configurations and their deployment may take you weeks, months or even years to build a cross-region network.
