Direct Internet Access Provider
Most businesses now rely heavily on fast internet connections for accessing cloud applications, conferencing, VoIP, VPN, file sharing, email and more. Having a reliable internet service is essential to business’ performance and continuity.
BDM Voice offers a range of next-generation connection options to suit your budget, objectives, up-time requirements and location – no matter how large or small the business. We offer connections that support both data and voice requirements (VoIP), delivering significant cost savings and high-quality service.
Why not let us help you choose the best service for your business?
Your own private data connection, The Direct Internet Access (DIA), is delivered directly from your local exchange to your business’ communications room, and is exclusive to your business – not diluted by other users.
We offer multiple DIA services, determined by your data requirements, your location in relation to the exchange and how they are technically delivered. All come with robust Service Level Agreements (SLA) focused on performance and availability.
Uses end-to-end fibre optic connections and delivers symmetric download and upload speeds up to 1Gbps. The service is provided on a bespoke basis.
It is ideal for medium and large businesses, whether single or multi-site, with heavy data usage, such as in-house hosting, video conferencing and large file transfer.
EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile)
Uses fibre optic connection in the first mile to your business, before delivery via multiple copper lines for load-balancing and resilience. This delivers download and upload speeds of up to 35Mbps. At a lower cost and faster implementation than Fibre Ethernet, EFM is a perfect solution for small to medium size businesses, or businesses that cannot logistically be served with Ethernet Fibre.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
Some geographical areas already have an ethernet fibre infrastructure provided to their premises, which means a business can enjoy the benefits of Ethernet Fibre at lower cost – because it doesn’t have to be created for you. This service is still limited in availability, but expanding all the time.
Once connected, the service is still private to you, and benefits from similar SLAs.
Benefits of direct internet access
Stability – a DIA solution is more stable and only impacted by your own activity.
Reliability – DIA is more reliable because less can go wrong with a private line. The risk of outside forces causing reliability issues are diminished. The circuit carries a 24/7 SLA and is constantly monitored for performance and up-time.
Flexibility – The DIA is a managed service that can have a small percentage of the bandwidth separated for voice traffic.
Security – it is far harder to hack a fibre DIA circuit, as it is secured on its own firewall, and has both a WAN and LAN router, giving your business an added layer of protection.
Capacity – DIA can be bespoke to your needs, delivering any speed from 10 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps consistently and synchronously, both downstream and upstream, with no variation other than what you may be doing with it internally.
Business Continuity – the most important reason delivered from the above is that the risk of breach is reduced greatly. The guaranteed up-time ensures no business hours are lost to failure and the consistent bandwidth ensures steady working patterns. The continuity can be enhanced further if a back-up circuit is added.
