Demystifying full fibre
You’re a business in one of our Faster Britain areas. You may have heard about our transformational Gigabit capable networks. You might have spotted our engineers installing fibre. But have you ever wondered what it actually is, what it does, and how it can help your organisation? Here’s a quick overview to the type of connectivity you can access via Faster Britain for your business.
- FibreBright is Direct Internet Access, also known as Ethernet.
It’s an assured full fibre service, which differs from conventional broadband services that offer a shared capacity.
Ethernet is used to connect devices in a network and is still a popular form of network connection. For local networks used by specific organisations — such as company offices, school campuses and hospitals — Ethernet is used for its high speed, security and reliability.
From businesses to gamers, diverse end users rely on the benefits of Ethernet connectivity, which include reliability and security.
- FibreLight, is also known as business-grade Internet Connectivity
A cost-effective, high-quality, Gigabit capable symmetrical service that offers bandwidths up to 500 Mbps. It can flex bandwidth as your business requirements change.
For organisations using Cloud Services for applications such as Microsoft 365/Teams or dedicated business applications such as Oracle, network quality is key. It delivers a higher level of service quality than other broadband offerings making it ideal for applications such as Cloud, and SD-WAN.
- FibreOne is our small business broadband
FibreOne is a full fibre connectivity option aimed at businesses with smaller bandwidth requirements – while offering reliable high speed service – whether it’s because they’re a smaller business, a smaller site, have smaller budgets or operate smaller teams.
FibreOne is an asymmetric low bandwidth service offering a choice of speeds.
- Leased Lines are a dedicated connection
Our technology enables us to build a private network, supporting the secure transport of data between customer locations or data centres. We can build networks that support point to point, point to multi-point and any to any connections.
These active links – sometimes referred to as Ethernet Access Circuits – are fully managed by ITS and offer bandwidths similar to DIA at 100Mbps, 1Gbps, or 10Gbps.
We support businesses that are moving from classic networking solutions to cloud- aware networking and those requiring large amounts of bandwidth between key sites.
