Internet access takes on a new importance if you are using Cloud Technologies.
If your web access is:
- Variable speed
- Slow upstream
then implementing Hosted Exchange or Applications could be unreliable and a weak link in your IT structure.
With the roll-out of Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) seeming to be patchy and ADSL Broadband speeds in remote areas still limited, you may be concerned that moving all your services to the Cloud would be far too reliant on the quality of your internet connection. You may also be concerned about what would happen if you lose internet connectivity altogether.
There are many options available, depending on your location and speed requirements.
- Bonded DSL
- Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM)
- Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC)
- Fibre To The Premises (FTTP)
- Satellite Internet
- Bonded 3G
With the correct hardware, you can also configure fail-over to a different provider or to a mobile 3G dongle.
