If you’ve not considered a leased line for your business, and are confronted with daily connectivity issues such as slow loading applications and devices dropping out, then maybe it's time to reconsider. As with the case of so many businesses in today’s world, reliable internet access is critical to ensure smooth operations, and the loss of internet connectivity for even a few minutes can have an impact on a company’s long term profitability.
With a dedicated leased line running into your business, you can ensure guaranteed speeds and reliability, as the line only carries communications and traffic from your company, resulting in exclusivity and an assured level of service. Sounds expensive right? Well there’s no doubting that leased lines are more expensive than a standard connection, but with a guaranteed level of service, the revenue you will no longer lose from a poor connection can offset the increased outlay.
Take for example the phone calls you receive and make in your business. VoIP phones that are run over internet based SIP Trunks are now established as the new standard of phone communication. SIP based telephony in itself is cheaper and more cost effective than traditional phone communications, such as ISDN, and by adding the reliability of a leased line to the mix, you’ll save even more on costs by cutting on internet downtime.
If you’ve decided that a leased line is best for your business, choosing the right one can be tricky with so many options on the table. In much the same way as when you move house and you need to pick a broadband provider, it can be difficult to know what the best deal is for your requirements. To make the process a little easier for you, we can compare the best deals from some of the biggest leased line providers. That way you can choose the best price for you.
As we covered in our previous blog, remote working and allowing employees to complete work from home is becoming increasingly important in today’s world. Further issues with South Western Railway on the 19th November 2018 led to many commuters being told not to travel from some of the busiest rail lines in the country, such as Woking and Surbiton. By routing internet operations through a reliable leased line in your office, this gives you the solid foundation to provide reliable remote working apps and services to your employees so they can work from home, such as a VPN with high limits on the amount of people who can connect to it.
Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent as technology advances, and the exclusivity of a leased line means that your company’s sensitive information is safe and secure from breaches and hacks. For organisations dealing with highly sensitive data such as financial firms or schools, this level of security is ideal for peace of mind.
