Connectivity (internal and external) is what enables all of the amazing technology functions to work for you. There was a day when an Internet connection was as simple as plugging in an extension cord, but bandwidth consumption (doubling on average EVERY 2 years for the last 10 years), sensitivity to bandwidth quality (voice, video, conferencing, etc applications), the myriad of devices concurrently operating (computers, wifi, printers, wireless, etc.), and inadequate network designs (the traffic cops of your connectivity) have escalated the criticality and sophistication of connectivity to the top of the list.
Much like the project management triangle (Cost, Scope, Schedule) the components of the connectivity triangle are highly interrelated. Bandwidth is generally associated with the “speed” experience, but Quality issues (latency, packet loss, network design, etc.) can ruin performance regardless of bandwidth. Even with that however, reliability holds the trump card. Quite simply, if your connectivity isn’t connected, all bets are off and your critical business tools that rely on internet access are toast. 95% is an “A” by some standards but if that is your monthly internet “uptime” per month, that’s more than 35 hours per month (99%=7.3hrs/mo) of downtime!
Most people think it’s all about Quantity. Dirty power might be just fine for that old grinder in your shop, but your new LED lighting won’t work. Many of your business systems need the best quality of internet connectivity to not cause issues in your operations. Consulting and internet connectivity quality testing is complimentary.
If your connectivity was optimized originally, new devices, wireless, wifi, expansions, etc. may have negatively effected the network. Some fine tuning often has amazing results.
Technology is great when it works, but often fails at the worst moment (during your videoconference proposal) because you had no idea you were operating at the very edge of your systems limits.
Your customers need you at your best and that includes your undivided attention. If you are distracted by technology disruptions or on-going issues (connectivity is the #1 issue) …your clients are being negatively impacted.
