By Dudy Cohen 2 min read

Determining the optimal access method

To reach more business customers you need to be focused on how to best serve their connectivity needs. To do so, it’s important you take the following crucial factors into account:
  • Time-to-market: You need to provide your business customers with service as soon as they need it, which is typically yesterday!
  • Service availability: Your business customers rely heavily on connectivity for voice, e-commerce, cloud services, and overall productivity – so downtime is not an option!
  • Flexibility and scalability: When the time comes for a capacity upgrade, your customers need it – yes you guessed it – yesterday!
  • Cost efficiency: Your services need to be reasonably priced so that your business and your customers’ business will continue to flourish.

Taking the above factors into account, here are the available alternatives for connecting broadband business customers:

  • Fiber optic access: Fully owned by the service provider
  • Dark fiber connectivity: Based on a 3rd party network
  • Leased line transmission: Based on a 3rd party network
  • Wireless transmission: Based on point-to-point microwave or millimeter-wave connectivity

But which alternative is the right one for you?

When selecting one of these alternatives, you must consider them based on the above mentioned factors — time-to-market, service availability, flexibility and scalability, and cost efficiency.

The optimal solution for you and your business customers should be:

  • Fast to deploy
  • Highly reliable
  • Flexible and scalable
  • Cost effective
