What is a Leased Line?
Leased Lines provide private ethernet connection for your business. With dedicated internet access, solely for you and your employees, your bandwidth is not shared with anyone else. This means that you are guaranteed high-speed internet, even at peak times.
Investing in a Leased Line allows you to take total control of your business connectivity. With a range of solutions available, we can provide a dedicated internet service to suit your internet usage.
Benefits of Leased Line Connection
Guaranteed Speeds: Unlike contended business broadband, Leased Lines support a private network. Enjoy maximum download and upload speeds, for you and your team.
Exclusive Bandwidth: Although ethernet cables connect to existing broadband lines, you can rely on priority bandwidth over residential traffic. A Leased Line sets aside dedicated capacity for your business, with no need to share.
Cost-Effective Options: Choose from a range of fibre or copper connections, to suit your budget and capacity requirements.
Enterprise-level Quality: Reliable, symmetrical internet bandwidth enables smooth, seamless data transfers and communications. Enjoy uninterrupted VoIP calls or video conferencing, boosting your business efficiency and professional reputation. Ethernet connections are cloud-ready, to help your business embrace the latest enterprise solutions.
Scalable Capacity: Adjust your connectivity package in line with changing business requirements. Dedicated internet bandwidth is available from 10mbps to 10gbps gigabit ethernet access.
Direct Delivery: Ethernet ports connect your business directly, via 100mbps or 1gbps bearers.
Assured Availability: Our Leased Line connectivity solutions include a 99.9% uptime service level agreement (SLA), as standard.
Private Security: Dedicated internet access for your business reduces the risk of invasive software or cyberattacks. Maintain total control and security of your business connectivity.
Efficient Installation: By maximising existing infrastructure, we can install your private internet access line with minimal hardware investment. You could be up and running within as few as 30 working days.
Types of Leased Line
Direct Access Fibre Carrier Ethernet
This is the ultimate end-to-end fibre solution. Connecting fibre optic cables from the network source direct to your premises (FTTP) provides unparalleled internet speed and reliability.
This connection is perfect for businesses with large numbers of users, relying on cloud-based applications. Control your data connectivity at all times, to ensure business continuity. Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) ethernet connection is uncontended, for total independence over your bandwidth and speed. With no shared internet access at all, this is our most secure leased line option.
Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC)
This hybrid solution piggybacks on existing broadband infrastructure, resulting in high velocity internet access without the price tag. This connection transfers data from the exchange to street cabinets over fibre cables. Data then travels the short distance to your premises on existing copper lines. As such, EoFTTC connections are much quicker to install than other ethernet options.
Ethernet over Fibre provides cloud-ready internet access, capable of transferring large data files quickly. Converting fibre broadband into a dedicated business line gives you exclusive, prioritised bandwidth for your connection. Enjoy VOIP calls and real-time collaborative tools, without slowing down.
Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM)
Ethernet First Mile is a cost-effective way to achieve greater, guaranteed bandwidth where fibre is not available. This service uses existing copper telephone lines bundled together for a stronger delivery. Should one of the lines fail, the other(s) should maintain uptime for your business connectivity. These cables join into a single Ethernet port on site, to make maintenance and improvements more manageable.
EFM connections offer symmetrical bandwidth (SDSL), with identical upload and download speeds. This is ideal for supporting VOIP and hosted phones or desktops, to enable remote access in and out of your system. If you are able to predict your future data requirements, we can provide tailored EFM connections to suit your capacity and budget.
