CONNECTIVITY

What is a Leased Line?

leased line

A leased line is a fixed bandwidth, symmetric data connection that that is dedicated specifically for your own business use only.

Organisations utilising a leased line ensure that their internet connectivity speeds remain consistent and do not slow down at peak times due to other users sharing the available bandwidth.

Imagine having your own lane on a motorway reserved just for you with no other traffic allowed, and by also choosing a higher capacity bearer for your leased line you can also ensure that you can easily increase your bandwidth requirement should your business expand.

A leased line can be used for many different purposes not just internet connectivity, they can be used for hosted telephony (VOIP) which can provide significant savings to businesses by removing costly to maintain on premise hardware, allow packages of free minutes bundles, and provide flexibility for users to use a softphone on their mobile devices when on the road or working remotely.  

For further details on hosted telephony packages navigate to our Communications section.

Leased lines are also symmetrical which means that your download and upload speeds are the same.  This allows businesses to send large files, uploads sizable files to their web sites, use VOIP telephony, host web sites on office based servers and enables staff to access their work desktop PC’s or devices from home or on the go.

Dedicated Speed, Capacity and Flexibility for YOUR business

A leased line is dedicated Ethernet circuit and is proven to be the fastest and most secure way of transmitting data. The uncontended connectivity service is a popular choice for organisations which have a high volume of employees and data traffic, require absolute data privacy and need a dedicated guaranteed speed.

MPLS

MPLS or Multi Protocol label switching helps business maximise the efficiency of their available bandwidth, ensuring the fast processing of data traffic by figuring out the best and least congested route for that data to be delivered. 

MPLS can also be used to prioritise the use of your data by allowing you to choose which traffic you would like to prioritise such as VOIP for example.

MPLS is also suitable for businesses with more than one physical location being able to share their dedicated leased line within their own circuit.

An MPLS can be used in conjunction with a WAN. An MPLS WAN (Network Protocols) is used to connect multiple office all around the world. When WAN and MPLS are utilised together it allows efficient data transmission to all your sites. Scalability is also another factor, you can deploy MPLS WAN to over 1000 sites if needed, brilliant for global businesses
