Choosing the right connection for your business is essential in preventing disruption and slow performance of your voice and data services.
Switch Communications are able to prioritise traffic to ensure you get the best return on your investment, across LAN, WAN and Internet breakout. Our Tier 2 ISP network provides our customers with built in resilience and is monitored 24/7/365 across the full range of copper, fibre and ethernet connections.
Copper and Fibre
Traditional Broadband services ADSL 2+, Annex M services are ideal for small businesses and home workers with low internet usage offering up to 8Mb upload and 24Mb download speeds. Unlimited packages are available. As circuits are contended this means the quality of the connection can suffer and internet access can slow down, as result of users within your locality, not just your premises.
Fibre to the Cabinet and Fibre to the Premises are the next generation of services that offer higher bandwidth both on download and upload e.g. 20Mb up 80Mb down. These circuits provide cost effective connections for higher users of the internet and those using streaming services and hosted telephony.
Ethernet services offer greater scalability in bandwidth, with higher Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are uncontended and offer speeds between 10MB and 10GB
If you are a large Enterprise or Service Provider looking for a direct connection or require your own AS network we can provide access to Tier 1 network providers and our network of peering connections.
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) is a high bandwidth service delivered over copper that is reliable and can be used for point to point connection between sites, or internet access or for building an MPLS network. This is a cost effective solution that is scalable and easy to deploy with high availability throughout the UK.
EoFTTC is a range of new lower cost Ethernet access solutions that use Fibre-To-The-Cabinet tail technology offering significantly reduced lead time and lower rental costs compared to traditional optical Ethernet circuits and EFM. Bandwidth supplied is symmetrical and uncontended up to 20Mb/s depending on the capabilities of the copper line.
Leased Lines (Site to Site)
Fibre Ethernet is the most scalable and reliable site to site connectivity type offering the highest bandwidths available – up to 10Gbps. Fibre provisioning from Ethernet Nodes to Customer Premises removes the degradation in performance experienced with copper tails. Fibre Ethernet circuits are high speed, uncontended, full duplex symmetrical connections that deliver guaranteed throughput.
Managed Internet Access
Fibre Ethernet is the most scalable and reliable connectivity type for businesses looking for a direct connection to the internet, offering the highest bandwidths available. As with leased lines the fibre provisioning from Ethernet Nodes to Customer Premises removes the degradation in performance experienced with copper tails. Ethernet circuits are high speed, uncontended, full duplex symmetrical connections that deliver guaranteed throughput.
Interconnects across the globe enable us to connect you to anywhere using the most relevant carrier, so you don’t need to shop around.
We are able to make recommendations on the best performing networks in your area and once connected your connections are monitored and managed by our network operations centre 24/7/365.
