Access Technologies

Securus has developed a portfolio of data access technologies that offer affordable yet highly reliable data access. Combining all of these services into a single monitored and controlled system with appropriate SLAs can be a huge challenge: delivery through a managed service provider such as Securus provides the solution you are looking for.

The range of technologies includes, but is not limited to:
ADSL Annex A– this high-speed connection is a popular choice for businesses, providing up to 24Mbps download and 2Mbps upload speeds from a single DSL. An ADSL line allows flexibility and security and all connection speeds are guaranteed at a 98% SLA with a single circuit, or higher for bonded solutions.

ADSL Annex M – this business broadband is designed for companies that require a higher upstream bandwidth compared to ADSL 2+.  ADSL Annex M changes the profile of the circuit, reducing the downstream slightly in order to provide up to double the upstream compared to ADSL 2+.  It offers a cost-effective access circuit allowing you to download and send data effectively within a range of applications, giving you both reliability and business grade performance.

Bonded ADSL – this combines several lines to create a single, superfast internet connection. It has rapid speeds dependent on location, providing businesses with a consistently reliable line. It also operates on an uncontended ADSL network that increases reliability and boosts speeds. A bonded ADSL line can offer download speeds of up to 80Mbps and is guaranteed at a 99.9% SLA.

Fibre Ethernet and EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) – for any business looking for reliable, high bandwidth services, Ethernet has become the technology of choice. It can be used as a Point to Point service between sites, or for access into the internet or an MPLS VPN.  Ethernet provides cost-effective access to dedicated, scalable, high bandwidth services with fast repair times. Fibre Ethernet provides speeds of up to 1Gbps, and the more recently available EFM delivers Ethernet services using bundles of copper pairs commonly used for traditional telephone services, which makes installation much quicker and easier. By bonding multiple pairs together, EFM can deliver speeds of up to 35Mbps (distance dependent) and is deliverable within 3km of an exchange.

FTTC – currently broadband in the UK is serviced via copper pairs between the customer premises and the local BT telephone exchange. Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) replaces the existing copper with fibre optic cables, meaning that broadband speeds can be increased providing up to 40Mbs download and 10Mbs upload via VDSL because the copper line length has been reduced to just the copper run between the customer premises and the BT street cabinet.

FTTP – Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is a new ultra-fast broadband service that provides speeds of up to 110Mbps. It is part of BT’s £2.5 billion investment in bringing fibre broadband to two-thirds of the UK by 2015.  With this service, customers will be able to further exploit the power of the internet with quicker downloads and uploads, and easy access to high bandwidth applications such as streaming video.

3G and 4G – mobile communications have evolved rapidly over the last 20 years and now 3G and 4G represent the third and fourth generations of mobile technology respectively. Securus can support all aspects of mobile communications, including both these technologies.  4G trials are ongoing and will be a game changer when readily available.

Wireless – as technology continuously evolves and, with the rapid increase of remote workers, smart phones and mobile applications, business continuity often depends on the reliability of your wireless network.  Securus provides wireless connectivity that brings immediate cost benefits, delivering high-capacity, high-performance and reliable bandwidth.  Our skilled wireless operatives can give true performance surveys prior to any order.

WiMAX – as the first 4G wireless technology, WiMax has the potential to do for broadband what the cell phone did for voice and provide high-speed internet access for millions of users globally.  WiMax combines the performance of Wi-Fi with the range and quality of service (QOS) of a carrier-grade cellular technology. WiMAX networks can be as small as a single base station with a few subscriber units, to much larger networks with thousands of users.

Satellite – satellite broadband works in a similar way to Sky digital TV, utilising a satellite to transmit the data and a receiver to receive the data. For some, the only available way to get broadband is to get satellite broadband, either because their local telephone exchange has not had ADSL enabled or the distance they are away from their exchange is too far to receive broadband.
