Making the right connection

When it comes to the day-to-day running of your organisation, it can be easy to overlook just how important the right connectivity is.

As organisations across the UK embrace mobile working, big data applications and cloud-based services, connectivity plays an increasingly important role in ensuring fast and reliable access to the Internet.

Finding the right service provider can be difficult, as there are a range of options available, and the right answer isn’t always going to be “more bandwidth”.

What is the right connectivity for me?

With such a wide choice of products on the market, you need to think about what’s right for your organisation. Here are four key considerations:

Availability Entering your analogue line number into the tool (Click here) will show what broadband services are available at your location and what the likely speeds will be. Also, be aware of install lead times as they differ between services.

Capacity Think about what bandwidth you’re going to need for both upload and download. In most cases, this will be determined by your use of cloud services like Office 365 or hosted desktop applications. If you’re using VoIP, you will need 100kps per voice call. Be aware of contention ratios as throughput will vary at different times of the day. With bandwidth requirements increasing year-on-year, consider future upgrade options.

Continuity How long can you survive without your broadband connection? Should things go wrong, make sure you have an understanding of your service level agreements and, if necessary, consider back-up options.

Security Have you carried out a risk assessment? Can you define what security is needed to protect your voice and data traffic? What about firewalls, malware protection, anti-spam or data encryption?
