  6. 6. Approaches to Delivering Hybrid Solutions <ul><li>Compromise – select a single service provider who can get closest to the right solution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is the traditional approach </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Does not work in emerging markets – need to leverage local infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do it yourself – implement and manage a tailored, multi-provider network using in-house resources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Only an option for the largest, most advanced enterprises </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extremely high overheads to support this environment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Choice – select a network provider who can deliver a hybrid solution with a single contract, helpdesk process and SLA – regardless of network design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is Reliance Globalcom’s core business </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leverage investment made in systems, processes and staff to support hybrid environments </li></ul></ul>
