Expert Technology Associates

PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA — March 8, 2016 — Expert Technology Associates (ETA), full-service business communications provider based in Pennsylvania and serving over 1,800 customers throughout the US and abroad, today announced a strategic partnership with Ecessa Corporation to provide business networking solutions that improve cloud and Internet performance and eliminate network outages. Ecessa’s range of wide area network controllers complement the unified voice & data communications solutions Expert Technology Associates currently provide.

Ecessa appliances leverage multiple communication links to eliminate Internet downtime and ensure uninterrupted access to cloud-based applications. The technology ensures optimal performance of real-time applications, including Citrix, Voice over IP (VoIP), Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and cloud-based systems, which are vulnerable to service issues such as latency, jitter and line failure.

On average, businesses lose between $84,000 and $108,000 for every hour of IT system downtime, according to estimates from studies and surveys performed by Networking Computing, Meta Group and Contingency Planning Research. Financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing and energy lead the list of industries with a high rate of revenue loss during latency and downtimes.

“Ecessa is a best-in-service provider that will help us to save our clients time and money by strengthening their network infrastructure and providing redundant connections to the cloud and Internet,” said Bill Quinlan, Vice President at Expert Technology Associates. “As more critical business functions are moved to the cloud, relying a single connection to the Internet is no longer viable. In addition to the risk of ISP [Internet service provider] outages cutting a business off entirely from its core applications, poor line quality can result in slow applications and frustrated employees and customers. Ecessa WAN link controllers keeps businesses up and running. It saves our clients from losing productivity and money during network downtime.”

Ecessa units are deployed around the globe. Ecessa technology ensures business continuity for small businesses with one location as well as enterprises and multinational organizations with geographically dispersed branch offices. The company’s SD-WAN offering, WANworX™, links multiple business locations into one seamless, highly available network, using any available carrier services, and can reliably supplement existing MPLS networks with low cost broadband services.

“Enterprise IT professionals are struggling with network issues and aren’t aware that solutions like Ecessa exist, let alone how much they can help their bottom line. We’re here to solve their problems,” said Quinlan. ” We help businesses in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and their offices around the world communicate, collaborate, stay connected and be protected.”
