Why You Need An Internet Connection That Is Classified As A Business Fibre Connection

Why do businesses need an internet connection that is classified as a business fibre connection? What are the differences between a business fibre and a business copper connection? Some of the main differences that make business fibre a better option are speed, reliability cloud access, bandwidth, latency, security, and cost.

 

If you need a business fibre connection, contact us and we will help you select the best option for your business.

 

Speed

Fibre transmits data via an optical light signal. This means the data is travelling extremely fast - at the speed of light. With speeds ranging from  5 Mbps to 100 Gbps, it is very unlikely that your business will notice any slowdown, even during periods of peak traffic. This is important because slow internet translates into slow employees. Consider using a tool to check your current internet speed. Check out our post about internet speed tools

 

Bandwidth

If your business requires a lot of bandwidth due to large amounts of data transfer, a fibre cable option is better than copper.  For example, SIP trunking, web conferencing, high definition video streaming, file sharing and cloud-based applications place a high demand on bandwidth.  Fibre, although not truly unlimited, does have significantly higher bandwidth availability than copper.

Latency

Latency is the terminology used to describe "lagging" or delays in data transmission. One of fibre's assets is that the practical issues caused by latency are improved or reduced. One of the greatest  benefits of this is that VoIP calls placed through the network will experience better voice quality. Others include quicker file transfers and the organization's ability to see more of its applications based in the cloud. In practical terms, your employees will be able to collaborate more quickly and effectively.

 

Security

A business fibre optic connection is more secure than a copper one. Hackers cannot resort to cable tapping as they do with copper. If the fibre cable is cut then the signal stops. This means that your sensitive information, and that of your customers and clients, is less likely to be compromised. 

 

Cost

Although initial set up costs for fibre tend to be expensive, long-term costs are generally significantly cheaper. This is because there are usually lower maintenance costs, fewer production interruptions due to downtime,and the potential for lower VoIP costs if your business is operating a VoIP network.

Higher Reliability

Fibre is not as subject to downtime as copper. This is because the core is glass, not copper, so it is not as susceptible to weather. Furthermore, it is not affected by electrical interference. Fibre cables can be placed close to electrical cables without fear of electromagnetic interference, thus delivering a more stable signal.

 

Cloud Access

The increased speed and bandwidth available means that it is easier to run more cloud-based applications. As we find business moving increasingly towards cloud-based applications, a business or organization's ability to function in the contemporary business climate is dependent on the internet solutions it is using. Fibre provides a level playing field and allows you to compete and function in an effective manner.
