"Selecting a provider was simple because the work was already done for us. We're saving more than we thought we could thanks to ShopForOCx.com."
"We found ShopForOCx.com via a Web Search in Google while shopping for reliable/competitive T-1 lines. Adam Edwards, a ShopForOCx.com consultant, asked me questions without selling anything and then delivered an array of options with pros and cons for each. I've dealt with many types of vendors as a "decision maker" for multiple companies and ShopForOCx.com is a model for success. Needless to say we are in the process of converting all of our data lines throughout the country with the help of ShopForOCx.com."
"ShopForOCx.com provided us with multiple options allowing us to compare quotes and select the best service for our needs. We were also pleased with the post-sales support ShopForOCx.com gave us when we needed help getting our rebates and coordinating our provisioning."
"The nature of our business demands a reliable T1 service. ShopForOCx.com helped us find aTier 1 service provider and negotiated a lower price than the vendor would have given to us if we went direct.
"We found ShopForOCx.com to be a very convenient and cost effective way to find new Voice and Data Service. Within 1-2 seconds there were quotes from 5-6 different providers. The ShopForOCx.com folks were very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of the different services they were representing."

Virtual Private Networks (VPN) 101
Written by: Patrick Oborn - Oct 26, 2021
As the VPN market approaches maturity at a brisk pace, vendors have been forced to rethink the tradition identity of their IP Security-based technology for letting users securely access enterprise resources via the Internet. Most large companies in need of linking their offices together have done so on frame relay networks. Although frame is still a useful product many users have found that the reduced cost of VPN gives them an attractive alternative.
During the last 18 months, vendors have pushed VPN technology into different devices, have lessened the distinction between VPN and firewall products, and have demonstrated a strong willingness to deviate from standardized technology to meet corporate remote access requirements. VPN services now come bundled with many dedicated services and several service providers are using VPN products as a loss leader so they can sell circuits. When investigating the use of VPN products make sure you speak with a professional who can guide you through the strengths as well as the weaknesses of the product. While it is a cost reduced alternative to frame it is a different product and should be thoroughly researched.
One of the advantages of a VPN is that internet access is not based only on the hub and spoke layout. The users away from the hub are able to access the internet through their own connection rather than going through the hub and creating a bottleneck. Users will only need to connect through the hub if they need to access information from the central database. When researching alternatives such as VPN, like always, we recommend you consult with a professional and not just a salesman for a VPN company. Make sure the individual you speak with is unbiased and will give you the strengths and weaknesses of each product. We recommend one of the brokers at T1 price for unbiased recommendations of multiple carriers.
