  • Guaranteed network availability with 99.95% up-time
  • 24/7/365 proactive monitoring

Our EFM provision, gives you all the rewards that a fibre network does but uses existing copper phone lines for broader accessibility, with lower cost implications and shorter lead times in comparison to other leased lines, making this option a new and inexpensive take on existing technology.

EFM is a fantastic leased line alternative which provides you with scalable bandwidth options but is delivered as a non-contended service.

The Benefits:

  • Symmetrical, uncontended bandwidth up to 20Mbps
  • UK wide connectivity
  • Short lead times – typically 25 working days
  • Dedicated circuit for your business
  • Guaranteed network availability with 99.95% uptime and 7 hour fix

ADSL is a long-established technology used by the majority of businesses today because it is relatively low cost but offers high throughput capabilities. ADSL connections are often used for remote workers enabling them to connect with their office networks. Smaller retail outlets and branch offices also choose ADSL, where EFM is not available or when fibre Ethernet costs can’t be justified.

What’s the difference?

ADSL (Asymmetric digital subscriber line)

ADSL splits a line into discrete voice and data channels, letting you make a phone call while you’re still connected to the internet. This technology is cheap and easy to install, and a reasonably reliable solution for many businesses. ADSL is a contended service with traffic ranking implemented at the local exchange, which means speeds may vary during peak times as higher volumes of traffic pass through the exchange.

FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet)

FTTC is also known as “Superfast Fibre”, and is the latest development in ADSL. It offers superior download and upload speeds and will in time replace ADSL services.

The Benefits:

  • Unlimited business usage
  • Rapid deployment – within 10 working days
  • UK wide coverage
  • Cost-effective connectivity

Wired performance without the wires.

Flow Networks enhanced Wireless Leased Lines provision gives you all the pros of a traditional leased line service, but none of the cons, with all our wireless set-ups offering symmetrical bandwidth between 10Mbps and 2Gbps. Our next-generation independent system utilises tech-leading microwave and radio technology so you can be connected immediately. With Flow Networks your organisation can begin to reap the rewards within 25 days.

The Benefits:

  • We can install a wireless system within 25 working days of receiving an order, around 1/3 of the time it takes to install a fibre line.
  • In addition to this wireless requires no planning permission, and causes no disruption. Our expert fitters will come to your site, fit a dish to your building, connect the system to your office, school, business or service and voilà, you’re good to go.
  • It’s flexible. As the circuit is delivered through the ether, and it is easy to relocate if you move offices.

The high cost of enterprise WAN connectivity, support, and human resources accompanied by the growth of bandwidth-greedy streaming apps and cloud-based services, is pushing many network administrators to search for alternative solutions. SD-WAN, is that solution.

Flow Networks innovative approach to network connectivity can also save you money by lowering operational costs and improving resource practice for multi-site organisations.

SD-Wan allows administrators to utilise bandwidth more efficiently ensuring performance at the highest possible level, especially for critical applications that won’t sacrifice security or data privacy.

With this technology, remote sites can be connected using low-cost internet links secured by VPN. MPLS-like reliability without the cost is delivered through manifold up-links with load balancing capabilities, intelligent path control, and automatic failover.
