Internet Leased Line

An internet leased line is a dedicated, private circuit that delivers internet connectivity to a customer’s site from a Daisy Wholesale point of presence. The Daisy Wholesale network is classed as the A end, i.e. the originating point of the internet circuit and the customers site is what is known as the B end i.e. the destination of the circuit.

An internet leased line will deliver unrivalled quality of service and unlike DSL services have a 4 hour fault repair SLA in the event of a fault in comparison to the 40 or 20 clock hour fix offered on broadband products. Internet Leased Lines are delivered as a Fully Managed product in that Daisy Wholesale will supply hardware with the circuit (usually Cisco) that will be remotely monitored and managed by our team. Having a fully managed service means the end user removes the headache of managing the circuit and allows them to focus on their core business.

Point to Point Leased Line

A point to point leased line is a dedicated circuit that goes from one customer premise to another, for example a link between 2 offices or branches. The circuit simply routes traffic between 2 sites and does not have any internet connectivity provided with the service. This is commonly used so organisations can guarantee the security of data transferred between 2 locations and if necessary at much higher speed than a DSL service. Much the same as an internet leased line the service is offered with a 4 hour fault repair SLA however point to point circuits are not provided with managed hardware as because the line is not touching the Daisy Wholesale network (it is simply going from one customer site to another) it is not possible for us to be able to monitor this circuit at network level.

Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

Ethernet First Mile (EFM) is simply a connection from the customer premises to the exchange, the connection is made up of multiple ‘bonded’ copper pairs. Unlike a traditional leased line which uses Fibre, EFM uses bundles of copper pairs meaning lower costs, high resilience and a faster installation time.

Ethernet and EFM services are ideal for customers who require consistently high connectivity speeds, regularly transfer sensitive data from site to site, or have a high demand for uploads and downloads.

Ethernet is now the connectivity service of choice for corporate businesses and public sector organisations that need high performance, flexibility and value for money. If your customer is looking to future-proof their business then these services are for them.
