The growing need to always keep digital security protection up-to-date is becoming a key driver for growing sales of Ethernet leased lines and higher speed services with built-in redundancy, according to DMSL.
The broadband and hosted voice service distributor says that more businesses are signing-up for fast connections to ensure that their security systems, as well as all other connection-dependent apps and services, always have the bandwidth they need. They are also adopting alternative and diverse routing to ensure that they are not dependent on a single cable or pathway to keep them connected.
“In just about every business now, there is a critical and joint dependency on digital systems and connectivity. The reliance on the former makes keeping security services right up-to-date absolutely vital and to make sure that’s always the case, fast reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity is essential,” explained John Carter, managing director of DMSL.
“This is fuelling sales of Ethernet leased lines and other high-speed services. We are also seeing businesses being more wary of their dependency on a single connection to the network and taking alternative and diverse routing options to ensure key services can still be accessed in the event of a connection failure.”
Alternative routing provides two different cables from the local exchange or point or presence (POP) to a customer site, safeguarding against a cable failure. Diverse routing provides an additional connection to a separate exchange or POP, so that even in the event of the primary POP going down, connectivity can be maintained.
“BT now has over 100 POPs all over the UK, making diverse routing both practical and affordable for most businesses,” said DMSL. “As a Premier Partner of BT, DMSL can provide information and support to Authorised Suppliers of BT on all the company’s Ethernet leased line and diverse and alternative routing services and options. It can also provide them with access to BT discounts and promotions, demonstration and evaluation equipment, trials and pilots for new products, partner training and dedicated support from BT.”
