As we all get back to business, many corporate connectivity solutions are likely to be stretched to the limit.
It’s easy to see why. Over the pandemic, businesses have hugely accelerated their digital transformation plans, adopting a range of new apps and services.
For example, we’re all video calling like never before. Many businesses, meanwhile, equipped remote staff with IP-telephony and even unified communications when Covid struck. Collaboration and productivity tools that live in the cloud allowed many businesses to continue working efficiently during the Covid lockdowns.
As we move out of the pandemic, none of that is going away. Quite the opposite, in fact. Customers increasingly expect smooth digital interactions with business, alongside fast, seamless e-commerce and cashless payment options.
Many employees may continue working from home, at least some of the time, and will continue to rely on the ‘work anywhere’ promise of cloud services. All of this puts strain on business bandwidth.
Let’s face it, the future is increasingly digital. The ISDN switch off in 2025 will force every business to embrace all-IP communications. A new generation of tools and services are gradually coming online, based on the potential of automation, AI, VR and the Internet of Things. Businesses that can’t embrace new technology are in danger of being left behind.
At the moment, inadequate connectivity is the biggest threat to many businesses’ digital potential.
Ultrafast internet is the answer
With that background, it’s no wonder the UK is prioritising the roll out of ‘ultrafast’ connectivity. In many cases, that means full fibre services like Business Full Fibre – also known as Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). FTTP is spreading quickly around the country, but at the moment it’s only available to around 20% of premises.
Another option is Business Ultrafast Fibre, a fibre/copper hybrid service that mimics the infrastructure of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) broadband but adds a huge speed boost. The best news is that it’s currently available to around 2.8 million homes and business premises across the UK.
Business Ultrafast Fibre is based on G.fast technology and services typically offer speeds of up to 100Mbps and above, and can provide top speeds of up to 300Mbps depending on your location. That contrasts with the fastest Superfast Fibre Broadband speed of up to 76Mbps (and the fastest all copper ADSL connections only gets up to 18Mbps).
That means Business Ultrafast Fibre could provide a big boost to your bandwidth, and it’s more reliable than Superfast Fibre Broadband too. But what does it all mean for your business?
Business Ultrafast Fibre can turbocharge your operations
What it means is that you can look to the future without fear.
Ultrafast internet – whether Business Ultrafast Fibre or Business Full Fibre – is a game changer for SMEs, letting them adopt enterprise-grade online services without slowing down day-to-day operations.
With Business Ultrafast Fibre, video conferencing is smooth and clear. Cloud-based collaboration, communication and productivity tools can be exploited without a frustrating lag caused by data bottlenecks between your premises and the software provider’s data centre. More of your staff can use data-hungry online applications at the same time.
And adopting high speed ultrafast now can mean staying one step ahead of your competitors. For example, IP communications are more efficient and cost-effective than traditional landline telephony. They also allow you to benefit from cloud-based unified communications (UC), which combine voice, chat, video, email, presence and collaboration tools in one package. UC is perfect for staff who split their time between the office and home.
There’s lots more you can do with Business Ultrafast Fibre that you’d struggle to do with Superfast Fibre, but suffice to say that fast and reliable connectivity levels the corporate playing field. With Business Ultrafast Fibre, smaller businesses can tap into the productivity-promoting tech that larger enterprises have long taken for granted.
