Your IP Infrastructure Company
Internet has become the most important way of communicating in our globalized world. Today there is scarcely an industry that can survive without high-speed internet connectivity. Reliability, security, speed, affordability, and performance are important areas of consideration when making a final choice.
Activo is your specialist for extremely fast data connections from coast to coast and around the globe. Maintaining a physical presence in TOR 1, Canada’s largest and most important carrier hotel, and utilizing network-to-network interfaces (NNIs) means we are uniquely able to find the carrier capable of providing the best service and prices for your organization based on its needs and location. This ensures you get the most cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality, reliability, or speed of service now and into the future.
This varies significantly on a business-by-business basis. Smaller organizations with a limited number of office-based employees who simply need to send emails will be well suited to more moderate speeds, whereas larger enterprises (or even smaller ones who need to access cloud-based applications, back up data remotely, participate in audio or video conferences, and more) will require more robust solutions.
In essence, download speed refers to the rate at which data is transferred from the internet to your computer. Upload speed is the inverse of that (the rate at which data is transferred from your computer to the internet). Typically, carriers typically put in place default settings that make downloads faster than uploads.
Asymmetry doesn’t present issues for the majority of businesses, though for larger enterprises that depend heavily on video or voice conferencing asymmetry can have implications on quality and reliability. In those cases, a solution that is either mostly or completely symmetrical will be better suited to your needs.
The primary difference between copper and fiber is the speeds they can provide. Copper cabling (DSL and Ethernet) is usually limited to about 10Mbps, whereas fiber can deliver speeds in excess of 100Mbps.
This is a crucial question to consider because it determines not only the speed of internet you require, but also whether or not you need managed bandwidth services like MPLS.
If, for example, you only send emails and make the occasional video call, your internet needs will be relatively mild. A location like a call centre, by comparison, will need much more from their internet services and will also need to put in place solutions like MPLS networks and SIP trunking.
Depending on your needs, Activo can implement comprehensive tools and systems to continuously monitor our customers’ broadband access lines and send automatic notifications if any faults are detected. Activo technicians are on staff 24x7x365 to proactively initiate the troubleshooting process and keep you informed of the resolution status.
