Do I need Ethernet for my business?
Fibre Ethernet is now the de facto high-speed connectivity technology of choice, as organisations seek to capitalise on the increasing demand for more bandwidth provided over fast and reliable technology. As more services and applications are being positioned over Ethernet, driven by cloud-based and hosted technologies, there is strong demand for both a decrease in costs and an enhancement to the service wrap.
How easy and how much is it to install?
Our high speed, scalable Ethernet products can be delivered in as little as 30 days for EFM and 60 days for Fibre Ethernet.
How resilient is Ethernet?
Our optional resilient failover solution gives you the assurance of enhanced service availability levels to support business-critical applications and provides high protection against unforeseen network incidents. We have a range of failover options for increasing the resiliency of your primary service from FTTC Broadband backup right through to Fibre Ethernet solutions routed via different exchanges and network nodes for the highest level of resiliency.
Is Ethernet right for cloud?
Organisations of all sizes are already in the cloud (IP telephony, hosted applications like SharePoint or Salesforce and even remotely backing up individual PCs). But as this trend increases, so does the need for high-performance, reliable and fast connections. Our family of Ethernet services provides businesses with this essential foundation.
How secure is Ethernet?
Ethernet is inherently secure because it operates as a point-to-point service over a dedicated network infrastructure. However, if a connection is provided to the internet, additional security services such as firewalls will need to be implemented.
Can I use existing fibre installed at our premises?
All quotations assume existing fibre is present and available for use as per the industry standard. A site survey will still have to be carried out to ascertain whether the correct fibre is present and available for use. This can only be determined following the submission of an order.
