Entanet arms channel partners with new bonded product set
1st August 2013
Channel-focused wholesale communications provider, Entanet, is helping its partners take advantage of further market opportunities by providing a newly redeveloped portfolio of bonded broadband services.
The new services are being made available in a choice of four inclusive monthly allowance options ranging from 45GB to 360GB to cater for a variety of customer requirements. Channel partners can choose to bond two, three or even four fixed rate ADSL (512Kbps, 1Mbps or 2Mbps) or rate adaptive ADSL (up to 8Mbps) or ADSL2+ (up to 24Mbps) connections to provide their customers with greater resiliency than a single broadband connection and increased speeds.
Additionally, all bonded broadband services are available as either a managed or unmanaged service. All managed services come with a Cisco router and are subject to a 12 month contract.
Like Entanet’s existing Business broadband services, all bonded broadband connections include Elevated Best Efforts (EBE) as standard, where available, and use a MAX Premium-based connection where EBE is not available. The inclusive monthly allowance is only consumed between the hours of 8am and 8pm, Monday to Friday, which is also when these services receive priority across the Entanet network. Outside of these times usage is uncharged.
Commenting on the new product set, Entanet’s Product Manager, Paul Heritage-Redpath said “Bonded broadband provides the perfect solution for customers looking for increased speeds and improved resiliency but who do not currently require an Ethernet solution. We believe our new portfolio of flexible bonded broadband services will enable channel partners to take advantage of even more market opportunities, arming them with a cost-effective solution for customers whose requirements sit between standard broadband and Ethernet. When we announced to partners that we were developing the new products we received immediate positive feedback that illustrated there’s strong demand.”
