Staying connected is so important for businesses these days as we’re so reliant on not only having an internet connection but having one that is reliable and powerful. Downtime in connectivity is simply not an option as this could seriously impact productivity and profit. If you have more than one business premises, having streamlined connectivity between them can be costly and impractical unless you have a point to point microwave link, the answer to sharing a connection between nearby buildings efficiently.   

Why is Connectivity so Important for Businesses?

Loss of connectivity costs businesses greatly and with many companies moving their whole IT infrastructure to the cloud which is reliant on the internet, a strong connection is needed more than ever. Connectivity affects everything from IT to phone systems which means communication between staff and customers via email, telephone or social media depends on an internet connection, as well as how data is managed and even creating a simple document. A disruption in this connection often means you have to down tools which lowers productivity and can affect profit.

Working from two premises can pose problems as building an infrastructure in both can cost a lot of money and time. If you work from two premises the internet performance of one building shouldn’t be better than the other. Luckily point to point microwave links provide a solution to sharing internet between the two with no digging involved!
