Will The 2012 Olympics Effect Our Broadband?

 

London is expecting millions of visitors during the period of the 2012 Olympic Games and that could potentially put an awful amount of strain on our UK networks.  This could cause serious congestion resulting in your network slowing down, or, in the extreme, crashing your office network.

 

BE Wholesale said 2012 will be “the year data gets serious.”  Knowall is a BE Wholesale partner and BE Wholesale will be making the necessary preparations to ensure a successful 2012.

 

 

 

Knowall IT has always recommended a secondary ADSL line to add redundancy and there is no better time than now to implement a secondary line with a different ISP if you haven’t done so already.  Knowall IT offers a Managed Broadband service with prioritised traffic and we can offer this service through BE Wholesale or Tiscalli. Please contact us on 020 7471 3270 or sales@knowall.net for more information or for any IT support.

BT Power Failure And Why You Should Have A Failover Line

A power failure yesterday at one of BT’s major exchanges was causing huge ADSL issues all over the UK for the most part of the day. As we all know, businesses rely on the internet, without the internet your business will be unable to operate and this can have many negative impacts depending on the length of the down time.

 

At Knowall IT we recommend to our clients that they have a failover line with a different ISP, so in the above instance, when the BT line goes down, it will failover to the secondary line. This is an automated process that is done by the firewall so you will not even notice the internet going down.

Knowall IT offers a managed firewall service where you can rent the equipment from us and we will fully manage and support the firewall. Knowall can also offer business grade broadband solutions – Click Here
