Slow Internet is the bane of every modern business. How exactly can you forecast how fast your business broadband should be?
Unreliable broadband isn’t always as explosive as servers going down or fibre cuts flipping the switch on your entire network. Files taking too long to upload, training videos that could have loaded a few minutes faster–the true cost of slow Internet to your average business can go unseen.Read more

The futurist vision of the next decade is grand. From brain-computer interfaces that blend human insight and machine-driven analytics to simulations you can experience through all five senses, every year reality seems to get closer to the realm of science fiction.
However, such technologies will remain experimental without the support of hyper-fast computing and networking. Virtual reality is a prime example of a technology hobbled by latency, despite its massive potential for nearly all industries.Read more

At home, you can often simply plug in a router to enjoy the benefits of excellent Wi-Fi coverage. In the workplace, however, things become a little more complicated.
The first thing you need to do is clarify what constitutes a successful Wi-Fi deployment. Every organisation is different, and what works well for the superstore down the road might not be appropriate for the college around the corner, or the factory in the next street. This is why it’s important to carry out a comprehensive WiFi site survey and think about the layout of your premises, and the number of users.Read more

Like a ship cruising through smooth waters, you never notice when your Internet is working perfectly. However, one snag and you become very suddenly aware that the boat is hitting choppy waters or even sinking. Emails failing to send, uploads taking forever, video calls dropping in the middle of a meeting. Bad connectivity can very abruptly grind your business to a halt.

WiFi connections today travel through two bands along the radio spectrum: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. These are not infinite resources. Congestion and interference have become real problems, especially in the 35-year old legacy 2.4 GHz channel. Read more

Fibre optic cables are made of a type of glass. Each “fibre” is about as thin as a strand of hair. While at first glance it seems fragile, the material is actually quite durable and can outlast copper with proper care. Read more

The world may be hyping wireless 5G, but full-fibre is still the next true step in internet connectivity. It’s fast–faster than wireless 4G LTE. And while fibre can’t compete with predicted 5G speeds, it’s far superior in reliability and accessibility. Read more
