DMSL, a specialist distributor of broadband and hosted voice services, reports growing sales of Ethernet leased lines and higher speed services with built-in redundancy, as businesses become more aware of the need to keep digital security protection up-to-date and to remain connected at all times.
Managing Director John Carter said: “In just about every business now, there is a critical and joint dependency on digital systems and connectivity. The reliance on the former makes it absolutely vital to keep security services up-to-date. To make sure that’s always the case, fast, reliable, high bandwidth connectivity is essential. This is fuelling sales of Ethernet leased lines and other high-speed services.”
He added: “We are also seeing businesses being more wary of their dependency on a single connection to the network and taking alternative and diverse routing options to ensure key services can still be accessed in the event of a connection failure.”
Alternative routing provides two different cables from the local exchange or point or presence (POP) to a customer site, safeguarding against a cable failure; diverse routing provides an additional connection to a separate exchange or POP, so that even in the event of the primary POP going down, connectivity can be maintained.
As a Premier Partner of BT, DMSL can provide Authorised Suppliers with information on the company’s Ethernet leased line and diverse and alternative routing services and give them access to BT discounts and promotions, demonstration and evaluation equipment, trials and pilots for new products, partner training and dedicated support.
