Growing Business with Network Ethernet
The Benefits of Using Ethernet Services to Grow Your Business
Did you know that you don’t need to purchase separate internet service for each of your satellite offices? Whether you have multiple buildings in a campus, or offices distributed across the country, there’s a network Ethernet solution for your business. Even if fiber optic internet isn’t yet available in your area, your organization can benefit from a shared network connection.
In this article, we’ll investigate two types of network Ethernet connections:
- Ethernet Private Line
- Ethernet Virtural Private Line
Ethernet Private Line
Business services like email, chat, social media, websites, and hosted voice and data have become the most common ways for people to communicate. If you’re like most businesses today, you probably rely on more than one of these to conduct your business and stay connected with your customers.
Small businesses with a few locations can benefit from a point-to-point Ethernet configuration, or Ethernet Private Line; for example, fiber connections between a main office, or headquarters, and a satellite office.
Perhaps you participate in online meetings through WebEx or GoToMeeting, or even host video conferences. Additionally, your team uses the internet to exchange files and ideas that fuel your marketing, advertising, and sales efforts. The ability to share not only the internet connection, but also the network, between all locations can help a business’s employees quickly and securely share files.
Since each office doesn’t have to source or pay for its own internet connection, the business internet operations are unified. And, a point-to-point networking solution can help organizations simplify their current infrastructure while allowing room to grow.
Ethernet Virtual Private Line
Organizations with several locations can benefit from wide area network services. These can include campus configurations such as universities, hospitals, or even municipal services.
For example, Sparklight Business serves a municipal government customer with 13 buildings, including an administration building, fire station, courthouse, and police station. The buildings are connected via fiber networking connections to its main building allowing each location to share its dedicated, fiber internet connection.
Ethernet Network Benefits and Business Growth
Whether your business needs a point-to-point Ethernet connection, point-to-multi-point, or any combination of the two, your team will be able to work faster; after all, even the smallest businesses with only a handful of employees can use a lot of bandwidth during the workday. Your people are using the internet every day, whether they use cloud services like Office 365, QuickBooks, WebEx, Dropbox, Salesforce, or Box.
When you begin to add other services like hosted voice and data, VPNs, video conferencing, and printers, unifying your organization’s network can help your team improve productivity. Additionally, sharing a network with your organization’s mobile devices can not only keep your employees’ devices secure while in the office, they’ll also be able to stay connected on the go.
Secure Network Solutions
Securing your network is crucial in today’s digital world. In years past, the most secure internet connections with high bandwidth were luxury services only the largest enterprises could afford. But, like most technologies, internet service has evolved with the times, bringing improved network security, faster speeds, and lower costs.
