Staying current and knowing the benefits of using a newer technology such as fibre can have a positive effect on your business and can help your company keep its competitive edge.
Let’s have a look at 5 benefits of having fibre to the business.
- Speed: This is one of the main factors when it comes to fibre connectivity. More and more companies rely on using the internet to conduct their business activities. Anything from sending or receiving emails to doing research to even some marketing tasks require you to have access to the internet, and having a fast and reliable line to do these things makes it even more important. Fibre connectivity ranges in a number of different packages which is determined by your size and type of business.
- Cost: The initial costs of installing fibre to the business could be a bit pricier than a copper cable / ADSL line, but it can get a lot less expensive in the long run. Fibre connectivity usually costs less to maintain, has a lot less downtime and involves less networking hardware, and you don’t have to worry about cable theft, as with copper cables. The cost of fibre cable and all the components has also steadily decreased in price over the years.
- Security: Unlike conventional copper lines (ADSL) or even wireless connections, your data is more secure with fibre. Wireless connections and copper lines which can be easily tapped into don’t stand a patch against the security of a fibre connection. The only way to infiltrate a fibre connection is to physically cut the fibres, which will cause the signal to disappear. Although getting fibre to the business won’t diminish all of your security risks, it is definitely a step in the right direction to assist your business with security.
- Latency: Network latency is an expression of how much time it takes for a packet of data to get from one point to another. Fibre connectivity eliminates many of the latency problems that users has with normal cable internet. If you have VoIP telephony systems in your company you can also experience better voice quality with fibre, as well as download or upload bigger files without any interferences.
- Reliability: Because fibre is much stronger than traditional copper cables, it offers a much higher reliability when it comes to connectivity. Fibre is also more resistant to severe weather conditions, which can damage copper cabling. Another point that makes fibre connectivity much more reliable is it’s resistance to electrical interference because its core is made of glass and not copper.
These points should give you enough reason to start looking at fibre to the business and finding out which fibre connectivity package will work the best for your business. Get in contact with us to find out more about our fibre connectivity services.
