Our point to point solutions are aimed at corporate clients looking to link sites and share voice, video, email and business applications between offices, helping drive cost efficiencies and improve efficiency. Point to point ethernet offers unrivalled data transfer rates of up to 1,000Mbs in point to point, or point to multi-point scenarios. Data traffic is handled efficiently with prioritisation rules applied in the event of network congestion.
Point to point is cost effective and flexible, allowing you to specify how much bandwidth you require between sites and expand provisions to meet growing demand without service interruption. Point to point also offers unrivalled levels of security and reliability for businesses that cannot afford down time, with 99.8% availability guaranteed by our SLAs.
MPLS (Multi Protocol Labelled Switching) provides the ultimate networking solution with secure, private connectivity across a single infrastructure between multiple sites. MPLS is flexible and scaleable with network access via a combination of point to point ethernet, Leased Line or broadband connections. MPLS makes use of cutting edge packet labelling technology to maximise the efficiency of data routing. Every device on the MPLS network, and within the ISPs MPLS cloud, reads the MPLS headers attached to each data packet allowing complete control over data traffic. Data takes the shortest route between sites, rather than via a central hub, reducing bottlenecks. Bespoke add-on services to MPLS networks include firewalls, internet access, SIP Trunk voice breakout, as well as connections to hosted applications and servers.
Our leased line solutions provide dedicated, high-bandwidth connectivity that can support busy networks, web servers, large data transfers and multimedia applications. A leased line gives you a guaranteed and secure point-to-point connection between sites or directly from your LAN to our internet backbone. Leased lines provide high-capacity internet connectivity through our resilient network, all covered by industry leading service guarantees. We operate hardware redundancy and have multiple high capacity links to Tier 1 carriers to ensure fast access times. Our network operations are housed in secure datacentres, providing unrivalled protection from power failure, transit failure, theft or flooding.
