In the business world, network redundancy has been high on the agenda post 9/11. We’re in an age where businesses are increasingly reliant upon technology to underpin their day to day operation; prolonged network failures are more costly than ever before.
With Ofcom keen to set restrictions on advertised internet speeds, it is important to remember the difficulties in assessing the potential speed a user can get until the service has been installed. Back in the old days with fixed rate products, such as BT ADSL IPStream and SDSL, it was much easier to downgrade a user’s service to the next available product if the bandwidth they desired was technically not possible to deliver. However with the advent of ‘up to’ services customers receive the fastest speed their line can support for the same monthly charge.
As more customers move applications into the cloud, it is becoming paramount that their WAN connectivity can handle the increased usage demands it is being subjected to. Equally as important is the resiliency and strength of the underlying circuits. However, not every error can be prevented and we are increasingly seeing issues outside of our network that are affecting your use of our circuits. Be that exchanges being robbed or contractors cutting through fibre or copper cables laid.
We have just launched our “Playroom” at our sales office in London. If you are currently looking to change your services or would like to experience another product then our demo room is the perfect place to start. The idea is to deliver all our products from ADSL2+, SDSL, Advance, PureFluid and even fibre into this room so you can see firsthand how the services perform. You can even bring along your own equipment to test with.
