Nearly 30% of all business activity now occurs online. Depending on your business, you may depend on the internet even more than that.
Today, business requires more than just fast internet to compete effectively. You need a suite of telecommunications tools, along with the best internet service for business.
You Need Fiber
As more people are online, capacity will be an increasingly important function. In December 2020, upstream traffic during business hours grew 98% from the previous year. Downstream traffic was also up 51%.
Copper and cable lines max out around 300 Mbps, but fiber companies like LOGIX can provide the best internet service for business, with speeds as high as 10 Gbps.
Fiber also has additional capacity, which means that as your business grows, it is easy to scale your service levels.
Fiber also provides symmetrical speeds. You will get the same upload and download speeds.
While some business internet providers share your connection among neighboring businesses and throttle speeds during peak times, a dedicated fiber connection with LOGIX means no sharing and no throttling. You get the speeds you pay for, regardless of demand.
You Need Low Latency
Fast internet is great unless there is high latency.
Latency is the time delay between the instance that you click something and when you receive the results. Even with a fast connection, high latency causes longer wait times. It can also cause significant problems for business voice calls or video calls.
When latency is high, there is higher packet loss during transmission. You may notice poor connections, dropouts or lags. You need low latency for high-quality voice and video.
LOGIX offers fast, scalable speeds with exceptionally low latency for better performance.
You Need VoIP and Hosted PBX
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has changed the marketplace for business phone services. By leveraging the pricing power of the internet, companies have dramatically reduced their telecommunications costs.
The LOGIX Business Voice solution provides a cloud-based operating expense model with a combination of soft client and IP-based desk phone options.
A hosted private branch exchange (PBX) eliminates the need to maintain or update an on-premises PBX by instead managing business voice service in the cloud. You can access more than 30 standard features, along with advanced calling features such as call recording, reporting and call center functionality.
With a hosted PBX from LOGIX, you can also take advantage of instant messaging and presence, along with high-definition video collaboration. For companies with employees working across branches, remote locations or from home, a hosted PBX extends your business phone to anyone attached to the network. With a mobility app, any internet-connected device or smartphone will have similar functionality as an office phone.
LOGIX also offers integration with customer relationship management tools, productivity apps and Microsoft Teams.
You Need SD-WAN
A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) optimizes and prioritizes your network traffic.
Think of it this way: If you were planning a trip out of state using a paper map, you could plot the roads that you need to take, but you would be unable to account for construction zones, traffic backups or accidents that might cause long delays. Today’s modern navigation systems can continuously monitor various sources for information that will affect your trip, and automatically reroute you to get you to your destination most efficiently.
SD-WAN works much the same way. It constantly monitors network traffic and reroutes it as necessary for optimal performance across your network. It also offers priority for mission-critical applications, such as voice or video calls that demand low latency. In this case, not only does SD-WAN route your traffic over the best highway, but it also creates a dedicated lane for you to travel on – ensuring that your voice and video calls get the best possible connection.
You Need Reliability
