Cloud Services For Your SME – No Longer Pie In The Sky!
With the obvious exception of product quality and customer service, telecommunication is probably the single most important part of ensuring the longevity and success of your business. Without reliable internet connectivity and uninterrupted uptime, your business soon suffers.
Increasingly, businesses of all sizes are moving applications into the Cloud. The Cloud is particularly attractive for SMEs because you have full access to a complete suite of voice and data solutions, saving you money coupled with increased flexibility and reliability. By using Cloud services, you don’t have to worry about unmanageable upfront costs, unexpected (and costly) hardware upgrades, technically savvy in-house staff or expensive technology which becomes obsolete before you’ve even finished paying for it.
Migrating your applications and services into a hosted environment makes you far more competitive in our modern world of business. Which adds to your bottom line.
At Huge Connect, we offer a range of Cloud-based services that have one key purpose – to simplify your life and boost your business. Take a look at these great offerings:
Cloud Telephony And SIP
The relentless march of technology means our markets are becoming more and more global. To stay competitive, you have to make sure you have telecommunications technology that progresses as your business does. SMEs like yours need the same reliable, advanced communication systems as large corporations, but without the frustrating complexity and high costs.
What Is Cloud Telephony?
Cloud telephony is a virtual PBX hosted in the cloud that is able to make voice calls over the internet. I.e. you no longer require expensive, high maintenance on-site PABX system at your offices. The system allows for remote management and can be adapted to meet all your requirements. All the telephone handsets are physically connected to your local area network (LAN) at the office via an Ethernet connection. These handsets then connect to the hosted (cloud) PBX typically via your internet connection.
Placing your telephone system in the cloud provides you with a huge amount of flexibility. Should you relocate your offices, no problem, once you have an internet connection at the new site, you are immediately reconnected with all the same credentials. The main aim of Cloud Telephony is to increase flexibility and redundancy as well as reduce costs without sacrificing quality, which is why it’s the perfect solution for SMEs.
What Is SIP?
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a communications protocol that allows us to convert your traditional analogue PABX into a digital PABX. In other words, we transform your on-site PABX and enable it to make digital voice calls over the internet resulting in huge cost savings.

Data Centre Services
Increasingly, companies are making the move away from individual on-site servers to cloud-hosted systems. With most SMEs totally reliant on the Internet for productivity, extended periods of downtime, power or air-conditioning failures, as well as a large-scale data breach, can be crippling for a small business. Hosting on-site requires additional resources to translating to additional cost.
You simply cannot afford not to make provision for where to house your servers, data and applications. Your ultimate decision has a significant impact on your ability to scale, the performance of your applications and, of course, on your expenses.
When you use data centre services from Huge Connect, you know you’re getting 100% uptime, diverse cooling systems, UPS support and so much more. The perceived convenience of running your own server room so that all your servers are on site and close by fades in comparison to the many advantages provided by an outsourced solution.
