How important is connectivity when searching for an office space?

Home » Resources » How important is connectivity when searching for an office space?

From internet to email, connectivity is an essential service for a modern business – if not the most essential service. Your business’s survival depends on a reliable internet connection. Internet connectivity is also the most common reason a business leaves a commercial work space. A poor internet connection is a deal breaker. It is therefore important landlords make investments to guarantee their occupiers will have access to resilient and cost-effective internet.

With technologies such as cloud computing bringing more efficiency to small businesses, it is no longer just download speeds that are important to a business. Upload speeds are key to a business’s operations today.

M247 works in partnership with leading commercial landlords to provide ultrafast broadband to businesses, supporting data ranges from 1Mbps to 10Gbps. An M247 Connected Building is a next generation connectivity solution that allows your tenants to enjoy ultrafast connectivity speeds straight away. With high speed and reliable connectivity, you can also take advantage of our voice services. We offer a complete end-to-end quality of service assurance that is backed up by our guarantee when we manage both your voice and data networks.

Network resilience

Since connectivity is integral to a business, a new challenge arises: what happens when an internet connection fails? It is important that this is factored by a business when choosing a workspace, and take steps to mitigate the effect it might have on your bottom line. The first thing any organisation should do is an assessment of they depend on connectivity. Then they can assess what technology and resilience is required to lessen the impact and cost of any outage.

M247’s Connected Building radio ethernet services offer true resilience and diversity from the BT Exchange network. So even if the exchange goes down your wireless connection will still work, thus bringing true resilience to your business operations. If a business is bound by regulations to have data back-up, our radio ethernet connection ensures that their operations continue as usual. This means that M247 services are ideal for back-up and disaster recovery if there is an existing fibre leased line, EFM or fibre broadband. We can quickly install high-capacity, resilient services into a building as a turnkey solution, without relying on traditional network providers.
