Employee Spotlight – Marketing Manager, Rebecca Mendoza

One of our newest team members, Rebecca comes from a technical background, including years working with High Energy Lasers in the Aerospace and Defense industry. She’s also a sucker for romantic comedies. Learn more about Rebecca in our latest employee spotlight.  

 

1. Let’s start with the basics, what’s your role at GeoLinks?

I am the Marketing Manager – a part of the team that is growing our communications department to better serve our customers and partners.

 

2.  Being new to your role, what’s been your favorite part about working for GeoLinks so far?   

The culture and employees that I’ve gotten a chance to meet have been my favorite part of GeoLinks so far.  It’s very apparent how seriously GeoLinks takes their commitment to culture, and you can see the direct effect of that through their employees.

 

3. What is one of the most interesting projects you’ve worked on during your career? 

When I was working Aerospace and Defense I got to work with High Energy Lasers and learn about the various ways we use them, not only for defense but for communications as well—and that’s about all I can say on that 😉

 

4. Outside of work, what is your favorite past time or hobby?

I’m an avid baker! You can usually find me in the kitchen making brownies, cookies, profiteroles or cakes, just because!

 

5. What’s something most of your coworkers don’t know about you?

Something that my co-workers won’t about me is that I’m adopted.

 

6. What is your favorite book/movie and why?

My favorite movie is “Love Actually.” I watch it anytime I catch it on TV and especially during the Christmas season.  The message that love transcends, heals and remains even when we don’t deserve it, or least expect it, is always powerful.  Besides, who doesn’t want to watch a movie where one of the main characters exclaims, “Let’s go get the s*** kicked out of us by love!”

 

7. If you could go anywhere/do anything in the world for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?

I would go back to the north shore of Oahu and watch the turtles swim in the great expanse of pristine blue ocean.

 

8. What are some of the qualities you need to have a successful career in marketing/communications?

A few qualities that I think make for an exceptional marketing/comms professional are:

  • The ability to pivot quickly when campaigns, pitches, and events are going as planned.  Being decisive and knowing when to make a change and executing often times proves more valuable than letting resources (people, time and money) continue to be wasted on a process that’s not working.  Recognizing that and moving on is key to build successful KPI’s and strategies
  • Finding the “true story” that your business, customers, clients can relate to—the one underneath the data, and glossy prints! People want authenticity and connection—no matter the product.  If you can find out how to package and market that, you’re well on your way.
  • Never stop learning.  I am not, and I hope will never be an “expert” in marketing, because there is always more to learn, develop and level-up to! I love digging into new areas of marketing and finding ways to optimize what I know by supplementing it with something new I’ve learned.

 

9. What’s next…what are you most excited for when you think of the future with GeoLinks?

Sky’s the limit with GeoLinks, but first I’ll settle for cementing the brand in the industry through continued outreach, brand development and top notch content development: conquering the rest of the world will just have to wait until then.

Employee Spotlight – Accounting Clerk, Frankie Garcia

One of GeoLinks’ most recent hires, Frankie Garcia joined the team in June. We sat down with him to learn a little more about what his transition into his new role has been like.

  1. Let’s start with the basics, what’s your role at GeoLinks?

I am an Accounting Clerk. I process all payments and checks for our customers, handle new customer invoicing and I’m the main one that handles any billing questions.

  1. What’s your favorite part about working for GeoLinks?

The atmosphere and the culture that is instilled here. Our relaxed dress code allows you to feel unique, like an individual while still being part of professional, corporate environment.

  1. Being a recent hire, how has your onboarding and transition gone?

Being new and transitioning into the role, it’s been a great opportunity to learn a broad set of skills in accounting. There’s been a lot of new material, but my supervisors have been great at showing me the nuances needed to do my job. For someone new and entry level, I feel very supported.

  1. Outside of work, what is your favorite past time or hobby?

I enjoy being in nature a lot. Going hiking and going to the beach are my favorite pastimes. I enjoy music a lot and have quite a variety in my musical tastes.

  1. What’s something most of your coworkers don’t know about you?

I’m a gamer. I play computer games. League of Legends is my favorite.

  1. If you could have any job, other than your current job, what would you be doing?

  1. If you could live in any other time period, when would it be?

I would go back to the renaissance area and see what it was like to be in Florence during that time.

  1. What is your favorite movie and why?

The Lion King… It’s a classic.

  1. What’s next…what are you most excited for when you think of the future with GeoLinks?

The potential for our company’s growth and the chance to be a part of it. Personally, I’m just excited about the opportunities that it will bring for me.

Size Doesn’t Matter: SD-WAN Benefits Every Business Network

When you think about a wide area network (WAN), you likely picture a network covering a large geographic area, connecting smaller local area networks (LANs) at each company location. It follows, then that a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) would function similarly over an expansive, multilocation enterprise network. And, you’d be right, but not completely.

SD-WAN also delivers its signature reliability, redundancy, security and cost savings to single-site businesses. With SD-WAN, size doesn’t matter; it works wonders for every business network.

All businesses – even those with only one location — require Internet connections because their vital systems are no longer all on-premises, but reside in the cloud, including:

  • communications with voice or video calling and web collaboration
  • computing infrastructure like Microsoft Azure, Google Public Cloud or Amazon Web Services for hosting website, e-commerce sites and other applications
  • storage, backup or file-sharing applications like Dropbox or Datto
  • software applications like Microsoft Office 365 or Salesforce CRM

That’s where SD-WAN comes in, delivering connections suitable for large enterprises but affordable for agile startups.

SD-WAN offers many benefits to businesses large and small. Here are the top five:

 

  1. Cost Savings — SD-WAN creates a single network infrastructure that includes many connection types, such as cable, DSL or wireless LTE. This allows your business to replace (or reduce the use of) expensive private MPLS connections with cost-effective public Internet connections. In addition, expensive routing hardware is replaced with software that provisions connectivity from the cloud.
  2. Bandwidth Elasticity – SD-WAN also aggregates connections of any type, from any provider to enable you to boost bandwidth more economically, relieving network congestion or improving response times for applications.
  3. Enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) – Best-of breed SD-WAN provides a software-based overlay on your network to deliver central network management, automation and traffic prioritization. GeoLinks, for example, delivers SD-WAN that ensures optimal application performance with dynamic multipath optimization (DMPO) and routing capabilities, including application-aware packet link steering and on-demand remediation. In other words, GeoLinks’ SD-WAN ensures real-time applications like voice and video during phone calls and web meetings take priority over other less sensitive traffic, such as email.
  4. Business Continuity – Perhaps the single-most important benefit of SD-WAN is preventing network downtime, which can cost businesses thousands of dollars per minute. By using redundant links – often from diverse providers, SD-WAN can provide constant connections. This can be set up for a primary connection to failover to a backup link, such as LTE Wireless, which is an economical option for point-of-sale (PoS) applications in retail locations. For critical real-time traffic, multiple connections can be active at the same time so that if one fails, there’s no data loss. In an active-active scenario, you won’t even be aware an outage has occurred as your connection will never drop and quality of service is guaranteed.
  5. Improved Data Security – Many, but not all, SD-WAN solutions can mitigate security threats. GeoLinks’ solution, for example, includes an integrated firewall that provide comprehensive encryption and micro-segmentation to secure the flow of your data. In this case, site-to-site traffic can be encrypted, lowering the volume of traffic that needs to be inspected, making security easier to manage and more cost-effective.

 

GeoLinks’ SD-WAN solution also can support security features, such as restricting traffic to and from specific sites. Additionally, each SD-WAN implementation has a centralized orchestrator which will monitor your network activity and alert your business to potential problems.

Just from this short list, it’s clear that SD-WAN delivers benefits that are desirable for any size business that depends on Internet connections. And, it will even work alongside an MPLS-based virtual private network (VPN) links, so you get the best of both worlds.

Not sure what you need? GeoLinks’ SD-WAN specialists can engineer an SD-WAN solution that’s right-sized for your business.

ClearFiber™ – Enterprise-Grade Internet Delivered in 7-10 Days

What to Expect in a ClearFiber™ Fixed Wireless Installation

Not sure what to expect from a fixed wireless installation?

Let’s start with an overview of fixed wireless technology. Simply put, fixed wireless provides high-speed direct Internet access using radio waves to create a point-to-point link from a wireless network tower antenna to a dish with a radio on a building roof. Because there are no underground connections involved, fixed wireless technology is deployable in a fraction of the time and cost of a standard terrestrial fiber connection.

It takes 30-60 days to install fiber and that’s only if your business location is already lit (i.e. connected to fiber). If you need to fiber to be deployed to your building, construction can delay your installation to 90-120 days and sometimes longer.

When you sign up for our award-winning ClearFiberTM fixed wireless Internet, you can get high-speed Internet service with speeds up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in as few as 24 hours, but typically five to 10 days.

How can we install ClearFiber fixed wireless so quickly? We’ve broken down our installation process into five easy steps, so you know what to expect before you sign on the dotted line.

 

Step 1: Qualify Service Availability

Your service request is sent through a serviceability qualification process wherein GeoLinks’ staff verify that ClearFiber fixed wireless service is available in your area.

 

Step 2: Order & Contract

Once serviceability has been confirmed, an official order request is sent to GeoLinks’ Quotes Team to prepare contracts for e-signature.

Once contracts are signed and returned to GeoLinks, an in-house project coordinator is assigned to your account and will follow-up with the following documents:

  • Roof Access Form
  • On-site Contact
  • Site Readiness Questions

 

Step 3: Pre-Installation

Once all documents are completed and submitted, your order is moved to our engineering department, where the circuit is designed to fit your business needs, based on the specs laid out in your contract.

Then, your order goes to the fulfillment department, which makes sure that we have the equipment (e.g. radios and dishes) required for the installation. The fulfillment department also pre-configures or programs the radios for your installation.

Next, our dispatch department will reach out to your on-site contact with the soonest available date time of arrival for installation.

We’ll work to meet your scheduling needs, but installation date from order confirmation is typically between five to 10 business days. We usually schedule multiple installations in the same campus on the same day. Separate locations typically are scheduled and rolled out one at a time.

 

Step 4: Installation

On the day of the installation, GeoLinks’ project coordinator will call 30 minutes in advance of our team arriving. When our in-house technicians arrive, they will meet with your point of contact and confirm that we have access to the server room and roof and secure approvals to proceed.

GeoLinks’ technicians then transport the weatherproof fixed wireless radio dish – usually two- or three-feet in diameter –to the top of your building and secure it to the roof.  To do this, we use a non-penetrating, flat mount with rubber matting between the mount and the roof to protect the roof. The mount is weighed down by bricks to keep it stable. Weatherproof CAT-5 cabling is strung from the radio dish to the handoff inside the building. We’re typically able to drop cables through the ventilation system, so that we don’t need to drill.

We take care to position the mast and dish low so that it is not noticed by passersby on the sidewalk at ground level.

The installation typically takes two to four hours. Once installed, our technicians take pictures of the radio and share them with you, so that you’re aware of the radio location without having to climb to the roof. We then conduct a speed test with you live in-person to verify the installation was successful.

Before GeoLinks’ technicians leave, we obtain a signature indicating your approval that the deployment is in working order.

 

Step 5: Post-Installation Follow Up

Following the installation, our project coordinator will send you IP information with confirmation of the successful installation. Our customer service representative will contact you to verify there are no issues and our billing department will then invoice for the installation and first month of service.

 

Contacting Support

From here on out, if you ever have a need to contact customer support, simply submit a trouble ticket at the form available at our Support page and we’ll get back to you in four hours or less.

If you have an immediate need, and support can’t wait, call us at 1.888.225.1571 to speak with a GeoLinks’ representative.

Don’t Overlook Inbound Failover in Your Business Continuity Planning

It can happen any time. And these days, it happens too often. Maybe it’s a hurricane tearing down and overloading infrastructure. Or a wildfire. Or the third “thousand-year-flood in a row.” Maybe it’s just a construction crew with a backhoe.

Whatever the cause, your business connectivity flatlines, cutting off your organization from the rest of the world. Your on-site employees can’t access the cloud apps they need to run your operations and serve your customers. But the cost to your business is much higher than that, because the severed connection works in both directions. Suppliers can’t reach your intranet to validate inventory and fill orders, remote employees can’t access databases to do their jobs and customers can’t reach you for help.

All in, the cost of the outage is far greater than direct costs of idle employees. It’s costing you customers and brand reputation, making distributors afraid to recommend you going forward, and leaving you disadvantaged to competitors that are simply open and reachable at a time when your company is suffering an outage.

Fortunately, this hypothetical doesn’t have to be your future. New solutions can deliver affordable business continuity options to keep your operations running and competitors at bay. In fact, since few companies factor inbound continuity into their own business continuity plans, you can be in a stronger position than your competitors when an outage takes down an entire region.

 

New Tech for a New Age of Business Disruption Threats

The world is several years into meteoric adoption rates for SD-WAN, and there are no signs of uptake slowing down anytime soon. That’s for good reason, since SD-WAN can help businesses on the security, financial, operating and other fronts. Of course, the big “other” in “other fronts” is business continuity, where SD-WAN’s role in failover protection  is critical to business continuity planning.

The mantra “not all SD-WAN solutions are created equal” has become an almost cliché statement for providers with leading-edge SD-WAN solutions. But that doesn’t make it any less true. SD-WAN flexibility is vital, not just for optimizing current resources and ensuring that your failover solution actually work when you need them to, but in areas that many businesses overlook in their business continuity and disaster recovery planning—inbound failover.

Without inbound continuity, inbound traffic is limited to one connection. This means if the primary circuit drops, external sources can’t reach your site or VPN.

 

Cloud Dependence is Raising Redundancy Awareness

Every day’s a cloudy day for today’s businesses, and that’s a good thing. Cloud services have revolutionized business operations, delivering redundancy, always-updated solutions, scalability and, of course, the OpEx vs CapEX benefits that finance departments love. Extra attention to business continuity – particularly on the network side – has accompanied that adoption—and for good reason.

Way back in the olden days (you know, like, three years ago), when a company’s Internet connections went down, it was an inconvenience to the operation, but since mission-critical software was run on desktops or from on-premise servers, most company operations could continue. In today’s cloud-centric world, where even your telephone solution is an app, downtime can be devastatingly costly. So, businesses large and small have started to pay attention to terms that only their IT departments and people who wore pocket protectors in school previously cared about (or even knew), like “network redundancy,” “failover” and “business continuity.” It’s true…we’re all nerds now.

 

Inbound Failover and Business Continuity Matters, Too

But one area that’s often overlooked by today’s businesses—sometimes with catastrophic consequences – is inbound failover. With inbound continuity, static public IPs are provided between the core network and your gateway to support inbound failover for remote users and web traffic.

The right providers, with the right solutions can protect you from the consequences of inbound failure and protect you from costly outages when your company is hosting websites or applications that customers and employees rely on. Examples include:

  • Web traffic
  • E-commerce transactions
  • Remote employees
  • Supplier intranet access
  • Customer intranet access

 

Wireless Connectivity Gives Inbound Continuity Vital Diversification

Wireless connectivity options like GeoLinks ClearFiber™ offer added diversification protection that’s more resistant to construction accidents and natural disaster outages. In fact, many business and government offices rely on fixed-wireless solutions, which are better than today’s traditional fiber solutions, and then back those solutions with 4G LTE failover protection, for reliable, secure connectivity that, when paired with the right SD-WAN solution, can deliver inbound failover as well.

Military-grade encryption, greater redundancy, lower costs and failover for your inbound, not just your outbound, connections all add up to a solution that’s not just best-in-class, but smart business as well. So, when that fire, flood or backhoe takes all your wireline continuity options, your business avoids that connectivity flatline altogether, saving you productivity, reputation and your customers to boot.
