Unlock your potential and choose the right connectivity for your business
Although connectivity is now everywhere, it’s still relatively new technology which in itself demonstrates the strides the world has taken in terms of tech.
In 1989 Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, or the internet as it’s now more widely known. Fast forward 21 years and there are several options available to both consumers and businesses. There’s also arguably an even greater need for reliable connectivity as the world continues to evolve.
Types of connectivity
We’ve visited this several times over the years but, as mentioned before, technology is ever-changing. As a result, there are now even more options available to those wanting to enhance their connectivity.
From standard residential broadband through to business Ethernet plus the myriad of options in between, it’s important to choose the right service for your business. It’s even more crucial if you’re looking to elevate and enhance your communications and take advantage of futureproofing technologies.
ADSL, Superfast and Ultrafast are all types of business broadband. Similar to the broadband you’ll probably have at home, these business broadband products will give you a reliable, secure connection capable of handling data-heavy applications.
However, to truly enhance your communications and collaboration and give your business the best connectivity around, Ethernet is the way forward.
From Ethernet over FTTC through to Full fibre Ethernet, the range of Ethernet products available give you a product that’s even more secure and comes with the fastest speeds available. What’s more, you’ll get a connection that only your business will be using; you won’t ever have to share with the business next door.
Why Is Connectivity Key?
Connectivity is the cornerstone to most businesses in the UK, if not across the globe. What do you use it for? Making VoIP calls? Identification cards to allow people into the building? Advertising your services online? Promoting your business on social media? Ensuring the machines in the factory run smoothly? There are so many ways connectivity touches every inch of our daily lives that it’s almost criminal to not invest in the right solution for your business.
The telco industry has been banging the drum about the PSTN Switch Off for a while now. But with 2025 looming, it’s becoming even more vital that businesses evaluate connectivity options in order to take advantage of VoIP phone systems and take their business to the cloud before it’s too late.
Using connectivity for VoIP also goes hand in hand with mobiles. With VoIP, you can seamlessly switch calls from a desktop phone to mobile. Mobiles are also taking precedence in 2020 with workers being asked to work from home and, in turn, the use of mobile WiFi devices (MiFi) has increased exponentially. Mobile devices are also used across sectors: in education where children may use them instead of textbooks, in manufacturing where stock checks and remote updates for machinery might be carried out, in professional services where estate agents, lawyers and creatives might use them when meeting with customers to showcase their services.
