Silver Lining provide a range of connectivity solutions from internet-only broadband to fully managed infrastructure as a service.
We are able to design customised network solutions that are shaped to your business needs.
Silver Lining have a wide range of different offerings which can be delivered in a number of ways, including direct internet, MPLS and SDWAN. The different connectivity options can be mixed and matched to ensure your network is build using the right connectivity for the right location and task.
ADSL is a copper-based technology and is traditionally delivered using existing copper pairs (phone lines). ADSL is now less used with the growth of FTTC but is still a very important connectivity medium where other connectivity options are limited. ADSL speeds tend to range between 1Mb and 16Mb.
Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)
FTTC is similar to ADSL in that it is delivered to the premises using a standard copper pair (phone line), however the local cabinet to which the copper connects will have been updated to then aggregate those connections into a much higher speed fibre circuit. This allows for higher speeds to be delivered to the premises, usually ranging between 6Mb and 80Mb.
Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC)
EoFTTC uses FTTC technology, however it is provisioned as Ethernet termination. Benefits over standard FTTC are that it is provisioned with dedicated bandwidth allocation and support more advanced networking options. It also benefits from an enhanced support SLA through us which offers a guaranteed fix time of six hours. Speed ranges are the same as FTTC, however they are un-contended.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
FTTP is different to FTTC in that the fibre is terminated at a cabinet shared by lots of connections. FTTP is still normally contended or aggregated like FTTC, however as the fibre goes all the way to the premises there are less speed limitations than with copper cables and so much higher bandwidth speeds are available. Typical speed ranges are 100Mb to 1Gb.
Fibre Ethernet is also a dedicated fibre delivery to the premises, however unlike FTTP it provides synchronous dedicated bandwidth. Fibre Ethernet is the go-to for enterprise business networks where reliable speed for both upload and download are required. Fibre ethernet also has the highest support SLA of all the products we offer with a guaranteed fix time of five hours in the event of a failure. Typical speed ranges are 100Mb to 10Gb.
4G & 5G
4G and 5G offer fast and flexible high speed deployment options without the need for physical infrastructure. Wireless connectivity such as this has a number of uses depending on the scenario, from being a primary connectivity solution for remote or temporary locations to providing diverse backup connectivity. Speeds tend to range from 10Mb to 500Mb.
