Connectivity

Connectivity is probably one of the most important elements of a modern working practice. The Internet has provided us with the ability to connect and communicate on a global basis. At IP Office Ltd, we provide a range of innovative connectivity solutions to keep your business connected. To find out how we can help revolutionise your communication systems, get in touch and speak to the team.

Connecting devices to a desired destination

This works for both Data and indeed Voice – encapsulating voice packets and delivering it across the internet, however as these packets get larger, as is the case with adding Video, the bandwidth required increases to cope with the size of the content.

Home users tend to have an asymmetric broadband connection which could have contention ratios of up to 50:1 depending on the distance to the cabinet and local activity at any moment in time.

For business, ISDN lines are being discontinued and SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) lines have replaced them. SIP Trunks are a good alternative to run Telephone Systems and provide the connectivity for other devices to be connected to the internet, for both outgoing and incoming calls.

Session Initiated Protocol

With SIP, your calls are made over your internet connection, rather than a traditional phone line. Calls are prioritised over other internet traffic and there’s in-built resilience.

Moving your calls and phone numbers to IP Office Ltd is straight forward, we’ll take care of everything for you.

IP Office SIP is great for remote working. It can be used to set up a new office without spending a fortune on hardware.

Analogue lines have been used in offices and homes for many years. However, the time has now come for these to be replaced with a new approach. SoGEA is the modern-day replacement and is available to order through IP Office Ltd.

As part of our service, we offer full Number Porting to protect your important Telephone Number DDI.

Helping You Make the Right Choice

Business users often underestimate the importance of having good connectivity. Capacity planning for incoming and outgoing calls is important to get right, the consumption of bandwidth through intensive use such as Video Conferencing can affect the quality of a call. Our experts can help you plan and get the right bandwidth in place for your company.

SOGEA

*** SOGEA IS THE NEW DELIVERY METHOD SET TO REPLACE ALL ANALOGUE TELEPHONE LINES BY 2025 *** Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA) is a new standalone broadband-only product.

ADSL

ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line and is the most commonly used broadband. ADSL is delivered through copper telephone lines. ADSL speeds depend on how far you live from your telephone exchange – the further you are, the slower the speeds you receive. ADSL is also a contended circuit, so the up to speed advertised i.e. 12MG up and 2 MG down is shared among the closest 20 properties to you, contention on ADSL can be up to 50:1.

FTTC

FTTC stands for Fibre To The Cabinet and is the first broadband classed as superfast. FTTC is delivered via fibre to your exchange and from there is delivered via copper telephone lines. Typical FTTC speeds are 40/10 or 80/20, again this has a local contention ratio of 20/1

FTTP

FTTP stands for Fibre To The Premises, FTTP is delivered via fibre to your local exchange and then continues to your premises with fibre.

EFM

Ethernet in the First Mile. EFM is a lower cost option, with shorter lead times, and can deliver speeds of up to 35Mbps using copper wiring. Thanks to having identical upload and download speeds, EFM can support VoIP and hosted solutions. The service is delivered using multiple standard copper telephone lines either in a bundle of two or four lines to build a single service.

Leased Lines

Any businesses requiring up to 100% uptime should consider leased lines as their preferred internet connectivity option.

Dedicated internet leased lines offer secure, uncapped and uncontended connectivity that delivers between 10Mbps to 10Gbps.

As more services more to the cloud such as accounting, Office 365 and many more, the need for a dependable broadband circuit has never been higher. With our leased lines you also benefit from industry standard SLA for the quickest issue resolution available.
