How Our Customers Have Improved Business Outcomes with TMS


Identifying the reason for costly excess data charges


Telarus assisted a retail customer identify the reasons behind costly excess data charges. Through the customised business intelligence tool that is delivered as a part of the TMS solution, it became apparent that high-utilisation was occurring from one particular host within the Network. Further analysis identified the cause as streaming media content during the course of business day.  The customer immediately updated their web content profile to ensure that moving forward this identified risk was removed and the liability of the company minimised.



Delivering efficiency to businesses by developing an Acceptable Use Policy


Many businesses identify with the need to have an effective Acceptable Use Policy in place, and then more importantly, when to enforce it.  The TMS business intelligence reporting tool makes it simple to identify areas of concern by analysing what staff are actually doing online so that appropriate rules and guidelines can be developed to help control the behaviour.  This has enabled many Telarus customers to immediately remove any questionable traffic from their network to ensure it doesn’t impact on key business applications.



Securely linking international sites


The Telarus firewall has been used as a hub for 12 sites across 7 different countries to deliver secure access across the Internet, interconnecting to the 6 sites on the Telarus MPLS Network in Australia. The customer achieved significant cost-savings by not having to deploy an international MPLS network.
