Other Internet Options

The what other types of internet is there section!

DSL is referred to by our team as “ole faithful”. DSL is slow and steady, emphasis on the slow. It’s been around for a long time, and has gotten the job done for many folks over the last 20 years.

DSL brings a connection into your business through telephone lines and allows the everyone to use the Internet and make telephone calls at the same time. It works because the DSL system separates the telephone signals into three bands of frequencies. The lowest band allows for telephone calls, while the other two bands take care of uploading and downloading online activity.

Cable companies provide a cable modem for their Internet customers. DSL companies provide a similar piece of hardware called a DSL transceiver.

DSL isn’t as popular today as it was 20 years ago because the companies that provide it are mostly phasing it out and switching to the next generation of Internet technology: fiber optics

Satellite Internet

Satellite internet is an internet service type that beams data from your provider to a satellite in space, and then back to a dish at your business. This technology is especially helpful for users who live in rural areas that don’t have wired internet services available. It’s susceptible to weather, so that’s the downside. We often find ourselves appreciating satellite when it comes to SD-WAN solutions. Feel free to talk to one of our architects if you’re in a rural area, and want to see how SD-WAN and satellite could be a fit for you!
