When you choose an Optical solution from Openreach, we want you to know (not hope), that your business is in the safest place. Not only are you backed by a vast team of experts who stick with you every step of the way, but you also get dedicated fibres for your exclusive use. You can treat them as your own and you won't ever have to worry about the risks that come with sharing. You get exactly what you pay for with full control on additional bandwidth/wavelength requirements. And if that isn't enough, you can actively influence the future too!
Explore all the benefits of choosing Openreach:
Reduced cost of ownership
By thinking ahead and building growth into a solution, you can save yourself a lot of money in the long-term. For example:
- We offer reduced prices on minimum period options, making our Optical products more cost-effective in the long run
- By planning for extra wavelengths upfront, you can make your overall investment far more cost-effective
- Because dedicated fibre is used, spare capacity is yours whenever you need it and the potential to get more value out of your investment later is never lost
- Easy upgradability combined with ubiquitous coverage means you are more likely to be able to meet future needs or expand to new sites later without having to make a major new investment.
If you would like advice on how to maximise the value of your long-term Optical investments, just ask our experts.
Superior reach and resilience
Not only do our services allow you to move high volumes of data over long distances, we also have a network that covers the whole of the UK. This includes many rural and difficult locations that others can't reach, so you never need to worry if a connection to a new site is possible. You'll never have to compromise should the worst happen either, as our extensive routing options allow us to provide completely diverse resilient paths whenever you need them.
Do you just need to support large, static volumes of traffic, or are you looking for a solution that will grow with your business – perhaps helping you to consolidate a number of services together or avoid the need for additional fibre overlays later?
The Optical solutions we provide can be designed to carry up to 32 wavelengths. Even if you only need two wavelengths on day one, by building in extra capacity ready for when you need it, you never have to worry about being able to meet future growth in a cost effective way.
Our Sales Specialists will work with you to define exactly how big an initial bearer system needs to be in order to meet all your needs, now and in the future.
Our job is to deliver solutions that are every bit as unique as your business. Whether you want fibre channel interfaces for a Storage Area Network (SAN), Ethernet for a Wide Area Network (WAN) or something else on our list, we can provide it. You can also choose from a range of minimum period pricing options.
Your promise is our promise
Keeping customer promises is important. We will make sure we deliver to the date we have agreed with you and we'll even try to beat it where we can. Our excellent 100% track record for on-time delivery speaks for itself.
Our products offer uncontended bandwidth over dedicated fibre (not a shared infrastructure that could be impacted by other customers' decisions). That means you get exactly what you pay for with full control over additional bandwidth/wavelength requirements and the capacity you don't use on day one will still be there whenever you need it. No sharing means better security, control and quality with no hidden risks.
Planned and delivered by experts
Our solutions are designed, delivered and installed by experts who understand our network inside out.
We always take the time to understand what you need and we aim to build solutions that will stand the test of time. We also work really closely with our equipment suppliers, ADVA Optical Networking and Ciena, to make sure you get the very best that can be provided.
Empowering you early on
Using our Advanced Order Management Process (provided as standard), we can turn around a desk-based survey in five days allowing you to make an early decision on whether to progress your order.
