5G Beyond the Hype?

Posted by Max Stoner, Strategic Partners Sales Manager on Nov 15, 2018 11:50:14 AM

5G, You’ve probably read about it

5G is being talked about an awful lot right now. We’ve known it’s been coming a long time, ever since cellular data services landed, but now it would appear the dawn has arrived. The fifth generation of mobile cellular services promises data speeds of up to 1GB, as well as lower latency and greater capacity. This means that 5G is not only going to speed up video streaming and gaming for your average consumer, it is also purported that it is going to propel forward the development, adoption and performance of ‘tomorrow’s world’ technologies like driver less cars, smart cities, next-gen medicare and a host of exciting IoT applications. Sprint CEO, Marcelo Claure, recently said that “going from 4G to 5G is like going from black and white to colour TV”.

Platform One: Probably the most complete connectivity platform in the UK?

Posted by Dan Pope on May 29, 2018 9:08:00 AM

 

Platform One helps our customers deal with ever more complex connectivity choices in a straightforward, timely and very cost-effective manner. Based on in-house developed expert systems & integrated with our own software defined network core, it's brilliant for customers that need to connect multiple people, places and things using a mix of different connection types to the private and cloud based services they need to thrive.

It's also a great platform for Managed Service Providers, enabling them to connect their customers to their services, using whatever the most appropriate connections might be.

Set against a background of good news and bad, Platform One sets out to make difficult choices, straightforward. 

The good news is that there are lots and lots of ways that customers can connect people, places and things together. Out in the open market, you can choose from fibre leased lines, EFM, ADSL, FTTC, FTTP, 3g&4g data plans and fixed wireless. And there are lots and lots of providers too. Dozens in fact. It is a VERY competitive market.  

And that’s also the bad news.

At FluidOne we really believe in supporting and mentoring young individuals in order to prepare for the work place. This week we took on two A-level students with a keen interest in our business and how we function. This is their firsthand experience:

Our time at FluidOne:

With no expectations of what we would do or participate in, we’ve gained invaluable experience and a deeper insight into how the telecoms industry operates and the people behind the scenes. We found the shadowing of different people in different departments to be an enthralling part of our work experience. Their expertise within the industry and their network of partnerships allowed them to share with us all its quirks - we feel very lucky.
