Need Help with Multi-Site Fibre Internet Connections?
Whether you have 2 or 200 sites across Australia, Internet connections have become the foundation for most communications services, data management and user applications. Outages, downtime, latency or network congestion can have a significant effect on staff productivity and company profitability.
There are numerous network topologies and internet connections available, you may have a mixed network that consists of an MPLS network, a combination of NBN, other fibre or broadband connections, or depending on your locations and service availability you could have internet connections that are due for shutdown inclusive of ADSL, ADSL2, EOC, EFM and some Cable services. Your network could be managed and monitored either internally via inhouse IT, or via an external managed services provider, it could be just a series of data links with no network management, or you could have deployed SD-WAN.
How Telco Broker Can Help You With Reviewing Your Fibre Connections
Depending on the experience of your team, you may have any number of internet connections, managed services agreements and may not be entirely sure about the overall value that you are getting from your vendors and suppliers and what the true cost of your deployed services are over time.
If you feel like you are paying too much for your Multi-Site Fibre Internet Connections across your network, and you are not happy with the customer support or service quality you are receiving, Telco Broker can help you review all of your Internet connections at each site. We can get you quotes for each link from a range of different service providers, we can work with you to get options for each data link on your network map and compare against what you are currently paying for your data and network. We can then compare the proposed data links against the inclusions, costs, contract and SLA’s of your current agreements.
With the introduction of the NBN and general internet upgrades across Australia, access to Fibre Services and other broadband connections are becoming more readily available across the country. Value for money, service quality and support, is generally getting better across the board in terms of speeds, inclusions and price, so completing regular data reviews across your business is a sensible process regardless of your size.
Common Problems Australian Businesses Experience with Multi Site Fibre Data Networks
We come across many companies across Australia who either have:
- No fibre access but would benefit from it
- Not sure if fibre or NBN is available at their locations and need guidance as to which carrier to use
- Paying too much
- Poor support and poor SLA’s from current carrier
- Long installation times
- Incorrect or inaccurate billing with limited visibility of service costs
- Limited or no back up strategy
- Lack of visibility and understanding of their data network
Telco Broker together with our partners, have deployed a broad range of data connections of varying speeds, including fibre connections using the largest fibre carriers in Australia as well as the NBN.
Symmetrical vs Asymmetrical Fibre Connections
A symmetrical internet connection has the same download and upload speed. Data speeds are typically measured in Megabits Per Second (Mbps) An example of this would be a 200/200 Mbps fibre internet connection, which means you get 500 Mbps download AND 500 Mbps upload speed.
Typical Symmetrical data speeds available include:
10/10, 20/20, 50/50, 100/100 200/200, 400/400 (Fibre 400) and 1000/1000 (Fibre 1000).
An asymmetrical connection doesn’t have equal download and upload speeds. For example, the majority of NBN connections are being rolled out with typical speeds of 50/20 (50 Mbps Download and 20 Mbps upload) or 100/40 Mbps.
NBN Co has started offering symmetric speeds, with the NBN Enterprise Ethernet product which has a 1:1 contention ratio and speeds up to 1Gbps.
In the interests of redundancy, many businesses often deploy multiple internet services per site, this could be a combination of fibre, NBN and mobile (3G/4G/5G) services.
