The Benefits of Dedicated Broadband for Business Parks
Whether you’re a business park owner or a tenant, having access to fast, reliable broadband is critical. Cloud storage and backup, ecommerce, video conferencing, social media and content-on-demand services have increased the bandwidth needed by most modern businesses to unprecedented levels.
Network providers have traditionally built their infrastructure primarily for the residential market, to meet the demands of domestic consumers. That’s because traditional copper and fibre-based networks are expensive to build and maintain, so tend to be built in areas where there is a high density of potential subscribers, to meet economic need and maximise the return on investment. This places business locations in built-up, urban and semi-rural locations at a greater advantage, as it’s likely that they can get connected to an existing network to gain access to superfast broadband speeds. However, for business parks and centres in less built-up or more rural areas, it creates several challenges.
It places business park operators at a big disadvantage, as they may not be able to access the same networks and broadband speeds as their town or city-based competitors, which can tap into them with relevant ease. This means that without significant investment in dedicated connectivity infrastructure, they may be left lagging behind when it comes to broadband speeds – which can be a major selling point in a competitive marketplace.

Solutions for Working Remotely and Productively
Online technology has opened up massive opportunities for businesses of any size to work in a way that suits them, rather than being restricted by typical ‘nine-to-five’ or office-based working structures. Thanks to the internet, the world is more connected than ever, which means businesses – and individuals – no longer have to be in the same location to work together.
Now, thanks to the Cloud, smart devices, teleconferencing, shared online space and productivity apps, businesses can connect with their customers at any time, teams can collaborate regardless of location, and organisations can provide ‘always on’ levels of service. This is driven by a rise in remote working, which allows businesses to work smarter and become more productive and cost-efficient.
Remote Working and Cyber Security
Technology has changed the way we communicate and do business. In a relatively short period of time, the rapid advent of the Cloud, social media and online apps have unlocked infinite ways for businesses to work smarter, collaborate better, achieve efficiencies and boost productivity. It has freed companies up to become more agile by allowing remote ways of working which mean they can stay connected with their people and their customers at all times, from wherever they are. This, in turn, can lead to increased productivity, a stronger company culture, less stress and a decrease in overheads.
The Best Remote Working Solutions for Business
Online technology, the rise of social media and the round-the-clock demand from customers that it creates means that remote working is becoming increasingly popular for many businesses.
The internet never sleeps and consumers demand instant interaction with brands, meaning businesses are increasingly having to adopt an ‘always on’ way of working. However, for many businesses, allowing staff the option to work from home or away from the office can be a difficult decision to make. Usually, though, it can bring out the best in workers and unlock many business benefits.
