How do wireless connection solutions benefit SMEs?
Posted: Jan 24, 2020
Often when people hear about wireless internet connections or wireless internet providers they think simply of WiFi or mobile internet but the type of wireless internet connection Luminet provides in a slightly different beast altogether.
The reason it’s been a big hit with Luminet’s customers is simple:
- It’s fast
- It’s reliable
- It offers diverse connectivity
- It can be set up in 10 working days
That last point is a big differentiator when it comes to traditional fibre, especially in situations where getting connected simply cannot wait; let’s look at a few examples:
Moving into a new office can be straining, stressful and expensive. The last thing you want is to be forced to pay for two offices while the new one is being connected, carrying big overheads in order to not disrupt your workforce during the transition.
Yet this is what many are forced to do when it comes to installing only fibre. Note that we’re not looking to drag fibre’s name through the mud, fibre is fantastic at what it does and many of our customers prefer to have both traditional fibre as well as a wireless internet connection in order to diversify and ensure connectivity in case of failure on one side or the other.
A growing market for wireless internet provider is within construction where connectivity is needed quickly but often for a limited time, meaning a microwave antenna provided and set up within 10 working days becomes a very attractive option. No need for intricate cabling and no multi-year lockdown within the contract.
Another exciting market where wireless internet of the microwave kind comes in handy is during events. Often organisers won’t have access to the event space until very close to their event and counting on hotels or other spaces for wifi can be a risky bet. Due to this we’ve seen a big increase in interest from event organisers in getting dedicated connections over the duration of their events and that looks to continue its upwards trend in the near future.
New business setup
A familiar story these days in the financial world is that a few key players in a big institutions step away to start their own operation and with this decision comes the need for connectivity. In the world of finance and investment you can’t afford to wait up to two months for traditional fibre to be connected in your new office so getting Luminet’s microwave wireless internet connection in the aforementioned 10 working days makes a huge difference.
As mentioned above, diversifying the connection is also a huge benefit when you’re in a business where losing connectivity for a matter of hours can have a huge impact on your bottom line.
