Isuf IPv6-ready connectivity portfolio meets the requirements of businesses, irrespective of their size. A comprehensive portfolio of access technologies
interconnecting with our next generation IP network ensures we are able to deliver connectivity when you need it, where you need it and at a competitive price.
Isuf Broadband provides cost-effective, business-only, always-on Internet connectivity to support remote working, cloud services and the demands of today’s businesses.
Broadband is an umbrella term for a number of technologies including ADSL, ADSL Max and ADSL2+ services up to 24Mbps.
FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet, Superfast Fibre Broadband)
A Isuf fibre Broadband service offers superfast broadband connectivity with speeds far in excess of conventional broadband. Supporting our customers’ growing
requirements to run more applications, including IP telephony, over the Internet or private network, while keeping tight control over costs.
EFM (Ethernet first Mile, delivered via copper but via Ethernet for the first mile)
EFM is a cost-effective Ethernet service (Ethernet First Mile) that can be deployed rapidly using existing copper lines. The service delivers fast, robust connectivity
and significant cost savings against fibre Ethernet services.
Internet Leased Lines ( Fully Managed Uncontended Dedicated Internet access delivered via copper – Unscalable)
ILL provides your business with fixed, dedicated bandwidth of 2-6Mbps. Ideal for sites within your network where private, bandwidth-intensive communications are
required for critical applications, e-commerce or IP telephony.
Ethernet (Fully Managed Uncontended Dedicated Internet Access delivered via Fibre – Scalable)
Ethernet provides high performance dedicated connectivity from 2Mb to 1 GB. For UK businesses requiring fast, uninterrupted access to the tools and information that
they rely upon.
P2P (Point to Point) – Managed or Wires Only
A traditional point-to-point data link is a communications medium with exactly two endpoints and no data or packet formatting. The host computers at either end had to
take full responsibility for formatting the data transmitted between them. The connection between the computer and the communications medium was generally implemented
through an RS-232 interface, or something similar. Computers in close proximity may be connected by wires directly between their interface cards.
When connected at a distance, each endpoint would be fitted with a modem to convert analogue telecommunications signals into a digital data stream.

What is MPLS?
MPLS is a fully managed private network which stands for Multi-Protocol Label Switching. It is the method used to ensure packets of data get where they’re supposed to, via a sensible route, and that packets are prioritised appropriately. Ultimately, it is a private secure routing mechanism, meaning none of you company data goes over the public internet.
The Benefits of MPLS Networks
Improve Uptime – by sending data over an alternative path in less than 50 milliseconds (if one exists). MPLS also reduces the amount of manual intervention your network provider has to do to create a WAN, reducing the likelihood of human error bringing down your circuit.
Create Scalable IP VPNs – with MPLS it’s easy to add an additional site to the VPN. There is no need to configure a complex mesh of tunnels, as is common with some traditional approaches.
Improve User Experience – by prioritising time-sensitive traffic such as VoIP. Multi-Protocol Label Switching offers multiple Classes of Service, enabling you to apply separate settings to different types of traffic.
Improve Bandwidth Utilisation – by putting multiple types of traffic on the same link, you can let high priority traffic borrow capacity from lower priority traffic streams whenever required. Conversely, when the lower priority traffic needs to burst beyond its usual amount of bandwidth, it can use any capacity that’s not being used by higher priority services.
Hide Network Complexity – an MPLS connection between two sites can be configured to act like a long ethernet cable, with the hops involved hidden from view. This is sometimes known as VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service).
Reduce Network Congestion – Sometimes the shortest path between two locations isn’t the best one to take, as congestion has made it less attractive (at least for the time being). MPLS offers sophisticated traffic engineering options that enable traffic to be sent over non-standard paths. This can reduce latency (the delay in sending/receiving data). It also reduces congestion on the paths that have just been avoided as a result of traffic engineering.
Multi-Protocol Label Switching is particularly useful for situations where…
