When someone says ‘connectivity’ generally we all think about the internet, however, while a lot of what we do relies on good internet connectivity, great communication connectivity also plays a major part in enhanced business performance – they go hand in hand.
Normally it’s a given that any business should have good connectivity, however with the changing landscape of how we all work this has become a frustration for some. At the end of the day not paying attention to the reliability of your ability to connect effectively and efficiently, can and does cost money and productivity. Whether it be via internet connectivity or communication connectivity, no matter what kind of business you are in, the reliance on connectivity can be the difference between success and failure.
Good connectivity in all forms, will enhance collaboration, streamline processes, secure assets, link geographically dispersed offices & remote staff, help reach out to new consumers, communicate with existing customers and more.
On the other hand, bad connectivity will slow down operations, expose your business to threats, bottleneck collaboration, make you less competitive and impede internal and external communications.
So, how do you go about obtaining the best forms of connectivity?
Well, of course, you need to do your own research, but when it comes to expert knowledge in connectivity Elite Group are leaders in this field. Covering all forms of communication connectivity from collaboration and hosted desktop through to mobile solutions, Elite Group has the knowledge and partners to connect your business.
Let’s look at some of the Elite Group options allowing for better connectivity, whether it’s internet or communication.
Used to create a Virtual Private Networks, MPLS/IPVPN refers to a family of methods that use Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology to secure network connections.
MPLS/IPVPNs reduce the risk of security breaches and cyberattacks. They encourage productivity by granting secure access to employees in remote locations. And they put your clients at ease – since they know their data is properly secure.
A leased-line is a private circuit to your office or offices. By giving businesses symmetrical connectivity (identical upload and download speeds), higher bandwidth, unlimited usage and a dedicated connection, leased lines are a popular choice for internet access amongst a range of businesses, from small organisations to large enterprises.
Leased lines provide great internet speeds and are highly secure and incredibly reliable.
Point-to-point circuits give businesses a way to connect multiple sites through their Local Area Network (LAN). Point-to-point circuits are fantastic for connecting multiple sites in a secure, cost effective fashion.
Point-to-point circuits do not directly access the public internet which benefits from complete security, high bandwidth and low latency.
Business broadband is your standard ADSL connection and the starting point for many small businesses. A step up from your traditional home solution, business ADSL ensures that you are not paying too much for a bigger connection that you aren’t fully utilising.
Business FTTC is the next steppingstone, utilising both fibre and copper it gives your business greater bandwidth and reliability than traditional broadband. At a competitive price with a large geographic footprint, it is a must-have for many businesses.
A managed WiFi solution allows businesses to create a unified network and implement centralised management – giving them greater control, increased security and more scalability.
By reducing time and resources spent managing non-unified systems, managed WiFi is ideal for businesses looking to increase efficiencies, improve security and monetise their networks.
Collaborate and connect internally
There’s no doubt collaboration is the buzz word for everything we do in business today. Elite has several options when it comes to collaboration depending on your business and its needs. The best solutions enable staff to communicate, share files, video chat and more, no matter where they are and on any device.
