Broadband & Fibre
Keep your business connected with a reliable solution
With increased use of cloud storage and as-a-service software, businesses are becoming more reliant than ever on their broadband services. Business broadband needs to be reliable and fast, and there are various products available to meet the needs of different sized enterprises.
The use of smartphones, tablets and other smart devices – like IP phones and cameras, and Internet of Things devices – means that your network and data communications service needs to support cabled and wireless equipment. It has to handle devices of many different types and it must also be able to support devices for contractors and visitors. What’s more, it must do all of this while combining ease of access with keeping company data safe and secure.
When implementing data networks, you therefore need a company that can design, install and manage a system which meets all of your requirements for both local and wide area communications. It needs to be able to link seamlessly to your existing systems and data communications service. It also needs to be scalable, to cope with changing patterns of use as the business grows and evolves. In addition, it should be flexible enough to cope with changes in technology.
Standard ADSL business broadband is delivered over copper wire and is available in most parts of the country. If you have more than one or two people using the connection, however, its speed may not be sufficient, especially if you’re heavily reliant on the connection.
Faster broadband services are available through fibre connections. Unless you’re in a city with the possibility of fibre to the premises (FTTP). It’s most likely to be fibre to the cabinet (FTTC). This means the fibre terminates at a street cabinet, and the final short stretch to your premises is on copper wire. For business broadband users fibre is a popular choice, as it offers faster download and upload speeds and a reliable connection.
For businesses that need guaranteed speeds, there’s the option of Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC). This offers high quality Ethernet connectivity at up to 80Mbps, but more importantly, it has guaranteed contention, so you always get the same speed regardless of peak times.
If you need a dedicated connection, Ethernet over final mile (EFM) offers a constant speed and unlimited usage. The connection is carried over pairs of copper wire, so if one pair fails, there’s built-in redundancy to keep the connection working.
FTTP means that the entire internet connection is carried over fibre optic cable from the exchange to your premises and is therefore able to offer speeds of up to 100Mbps and even more. Because the connection is dedicated to your business, you’ll always get a fast connection and be able to transmit unlimited amounts of data.
Whether you’re expanding your business or starting a network from scratch in a new location, you need a reliable supplier that can handle the whole spectrum, from wired and wireless LAN services and internet connections through to wide area communication. Your supplier also needs to understand the increasing overlap between data and voice communication, as the growing use of VoIP telephone systems and smartphones allows mobile employees access to business systems, wherever they are.
We can do all of the above and our professional staff have a wealth of experience in providing cabling, network switching, wireless networks and WAN connections to businesses of all sizes, providing reliable, secure connectivity across the whole spectrum of devices.
Businesses are more than ever reliant on information technology. That means that data networks are an essential part of any organisation. Advances in technology have meant that this now means much more than just PCs on desktops.
