Exponential-e launches 10 GigE offering to digitally empower British businesses
Off-the-shelf 10 Gigabit per second connection will provide a powerful option to companies wanting to harness the full power of modern business tools
6th February 2017
Exponential-e, the British cloud and network provider, has made an off-the-shelf, 10 Gigabit Ethernet service (GigE) available to British businesses. This pioneering offering promises to provide some of the highest network speeds in the world to most businesses across the country.
It is no secret that UK companies are frustrated with poor network connectivity. This was highlighted when 75,000 businesses signed a letter of complaint to Parliament on the topic last year. Exponential-e is now addressing this concern by rolling out an affordable solution that is over 400 times faster than the Government’s minimum definition of superfast broadband (24Mbps).
The 10 GigE solution has been designed with the view that businesses truly want to harness the full power of business tools, from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to cloud services and internet-based applications. To do this they should be looking past the many 1 Gigabit per second offerings currently available.
With a 10 GigE connection from Exponential-e, businesses can quickly and easily increase or decrease their bandwidth capacity when they need it. Furthermore, they can split the networks’ circuit, using secure Virtual LANs (VLANs) to deliver other services and applications, with any combination of bandwidth. An example of this could be dedicating an entire Gigabit to a 4K video conferencing system.
“The fact that many companies in the UK still struggle for a decent network connection is scandalous. High capacity bandwidth is critical in delivering vital, internet-connected services that play an important role in carrying out everyday business,” said Lee Wade, CEO at Exponential-e.
“Data consumption by UK businesses continues to grow year-on-year and IP traffic is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 22 per cent, every year to 2020. This 10 GigE offering is a powerful, smart and agile solution that has the capacity to enable thousands of companies to adopt and run a full suite of modern solutions, as and when they need them. Furthermore, it is a guaranteed way of future-proofing their business for the foreseeable future as more technology advancements come to the fore.”
