As one of the most innovative and widely adopted forms of communications technology in the past 40 years, Ethernet services have a reputation for delivering quality performance when you need it most. But how reliable is Ethernet technology really? At Xinix, we’re pleased to provide the definitive answer to Ethernet reliability.

FIbre Ethernet services are far more reliable that standard broadband lines, enclosed as they are in strong fibre tubes hidden away from weather, water and radio interference deep in the ground. Without any interference to the physical performance, Ethernet services can deliver enduring performance and speed for much, much longer.

Ensuring quality performance

To guarantee that the Ethernet service we provide matches the high standards you demand, we have in place a number of protocols that ensure we will never compromise on quality.

  • Multiple routers and equipment to minimise single points of failure
  • Equipment powered by dual power feeds and connectivity to data centre power which had UPSs and generators
  • A supply of replacement equipment
  • Consistent line monitoring

In the event of breakage

To mitigate the effects of system failure, we provide round-the-clock monitoring of our core network that will alert us should a fault need immediate attention. Furthermore, with BT offering a service level agreement to fix any fibre faults within 24 hours at most, you can rest assured that any downtime will be limited. You will even be able to claim compensation from BT should a fault fail to be resolved promptly or fully.

So, how reliable is Ethernet?

It’s crucial to remember that while data centre power and fibres are as reliable as can be, there are some causes of failure which can never be accounted for. If your business operations demand that you stay connected with high speed for long periods of time, there is no better option than Ethernet, but it is always sensible to invest in a suitable contingency plan. We can, for example, offer equipment to help preserve performance, with DSL lines and 3G data services available. You may even choose to invest in dual links at your business location, meaning significantly higher levels of reliability.
