Having a reliable, fast, and secure connectivity solution is vital in running a successful business. We provide all the solutions to connect your business to your employees, customers, suppliers, and beyond.
With more and more people adopting a hybrid working model due to the Covid-19 pandemic, remote locations are rapidly becoming the norm and part of the working environment.
More than ever, employees are requiring access to business systems and applications from any location. With a connectivity solution from Assured Digital Technologies, we can connect your office environment and enable remote and mobile working.
Buying from a trusted managed service provider, we offer an end-to-end solution with seamless connection and ongoing support. Our connectivity solutions will increase productivity and efficiency, speed, scalability, and reliability as we manage the service from start to finish.
A safe and secure broadband connection is vital in the post-pandemic world, and having access to a high-speed connection has become more important than ever.
With several acronyms centered around internet connectivity, understanding the key solutions is just the first step. To help you along the way, we’ve broken down the terminology so you can choose the right solution for your business.
There are a range of fibre solutions out there, including Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) which you’ll have probably heard of. FTTC means that the connection from the cabinet to the exchange uses fibre which is faster than using a copper telephone line. Download and Upload speeds are up to 80Mbps and 20Mbps.
Internet service providers offer solutions with various speed options dependent on your requirements and budget. However, these fibre solutions don’t have an SLA making them potentially unreliable and unsuitable for businesses who need to be ‘always on’.
Our Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) connections include a UK specialist support team, choice of SLA, pro-actively monitored network, and can be easily upgraded if needed.
Key takeaways: Fast, asynchronous speeds
The above connectivity option is very much a consumer solution. If you want a fast, reliable, uncontended, and synchronous (equal upload and download speeds) internet connection for your business then a leased line is the most suitable. A Leased Line solution can offer speeds up to a whopping 10Gbit* (that’s 10,000Mbps!). What’s more if you opt for a backup line the uptime guaranteed by your provider can be more than 99.9%.
We offer easy transfer, so you can switch to us with little or no disruption. SLAs come with a 6-hour repair commitment based on a 24-month contract.
Key takeaways: fast, reliable, uncontended
GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network)
There is also another solution similar to leased lines which is more affordable for SMEs. GPON uses the same technology as leased lines but the total bandwidth (speed) available may be shared with other companies in the area. Speeds of up to 1Gbps are still available but at a lower price.
NOTE: You have to be close to the main GPON network to be able to get this type of connection though.
Key takeaways: Fast, reliable, affordable

The way people work forever changed due to the Global Pandemic, work is no longer confined to one location, meaning a reliable remote access solution is key.
With more and more businesses adopting hybrid-working models and some going as far as Facebook and Twitter with employees being given the choice to work from home permanently, giving them the tools they need to work productively anywhere is seen as a priority.
Secure Remote Access
It’s one thing providing remote access, it’s another thing to ensure it’s a secure connection. Without the right security measures in place, remotely accessing sensitive or private company data can open you up to potential cyber-attacks. Firewalls can secure your employees when working remotely, as well as when in the office.
Finding the right remote access solution that balances security, continuity, and functionality is essential. With help from our experts, we can guide you through choosing and implementing the right solution.
