What Disaster Recovery Solutions do we offer?
Can’t do without Internet Connectivity
Extra ADSL, ADSL2+ Lines
ADSL delivers broadband over traditional copper lines, whilst ADSL2+ offers faster download speeds. Having extra ADSL lines installed as a backup solution can be a cost-effective way of securing your connectivity.
Is connectivity business critical to you? Then you may want to consider investing in a Leased Line solution. This service is continuously monitored and comes with a 100% Service Level Agreement (where backup connectivity is in place).
EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile)
Connectivity is commonly affected by bottle-necking that can occur in the ‘first mile’ of the circuit. EFM uses bundles of voice-grade copper pairs to help avoid this.
An EFM connection is ideal for businesses that need an uncontended, consistent, dedicated connection that is also cost-friendly.
Can’t do without phones
SIP Trunks (Session Initiation Protocol) link the PBX at your business premises to the Public Telephone Network (PSTN). Calls are carried over an Assured Broadband or a Managed Internet connection using SIP Trunks.
SIP is extremely flexible and ideal for disaster recovery planning. It allows you to reroute calls in an instant, and DDI’s can be pointed anywhere you want. So if something happens at one particular site, calls can easily be transferred to another site or mobile device ensuring no loss of business.
Hosted Phone Systems
Hosted Telephony, or VoIP, offers Unified Communications without the need for on-site hardware. Your business telephone system is hosted in the cloud, and calls are made using IP Handsets, mobiles or other devices.
Hosted Solutions are perfect for Disaster Recovery and business continuity planning, as there is no physical phone system to be affected by events that result in your premises being damaged. You can therefore resume operations quickly from another site with minimal hassle, by managing calls through a web portal which can be accessed anywhere.
