Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should understand Cisco routing technologies. Most carriers use either Cisco or Juniper equipment. Understanding routing protocols and firewall configurations would be very beneficial. You should also understand IPsec and other security protocols like SSL. Also find a good provider who will be a good partner for your organization. One organization I suggest you check into is <a href=”http://www.virtela.com”>Virtela</a>. They are a virtual network operator (aggregator) who uses multiple carriers across their network. This means that you are not dependent on one carrier. You receive the best of breed service when choosing a partner like Virtela who has agreements with multiple providers.
