Posted on Aug 31 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Channel Live: Why it’s definitely worth the trip
The industry has an all new, exciting and free-to-attend exhibition, Channel Live. It’s brought to you by Swink Events – the people behind Comms Business and the previous Convergence Summits (North and South), but this year it’s a single, centrally located event held at the NEC, Birmingham and it’s all taking place on 12-13th September. So, what’s new and why is it an event not to miss?
In terms of what’s new across the entire event, you can get all the details at www.channel-live.co.uk but to summarise, it offers an ideal opportunity to meet suppliers across the communications channel as well as a compelling seminar and panel debate programme. Entanet and CityFibre are both key ‘must see’ participants in the programme – on Wednesday 13th at Noon, Entanet CEO Elsa Chen will debate ‘value’ in the changing landscape of wholesale network providers with industry peers; while at 2.15pm, in a session that’s sure to be standing room only, CityFibre CEO Greg Mesch will sit alongside Openreach to discuss the building of wholesale networks in a digital world.Read More »

Paul North, Sales Manager
Our new Sales Manager, Paul North, is our next author to meet. Despite being relatively new to his current role and our Opinion blog, he is an Entanet veteran with over 10 years service across our technical support, provisioning and sales teams.
How long have you worked at Entanet?
I started at Entanet as a technical support agent in 2006 aged just 18. After a year or so in support I was seconded to Ethernet provisioning for a while before joining the sales team in October 2007. I became a solutions consultant in March 2010 and then Sales manager in July 2016, so I’ve gained a lot of industry (and company) knowledge and experience over the last 10 years.
What are your key responsibilities within the business and what are your areas of expertise?Read More »
I am currently responsible for our entire Ethernet and Wholesale DSL number. I manage our team of Sales Consultants and I assist them with customer meetings, conference calls and individual deals. I create promotions & strategies for the team and I also manage the commercial relationships with our key suppliers such as BT Wholesale, TalkTalk, Virgin & Vodafone.
My main product areas of expertise are layer 2 xDSL, Ethernet & MPLS.
Posted on Mar 08 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Autobiography of a DX journey
The communications industry has seen its fair share of disruption. There are the players who are in a race to the bottom, labelling an increasing number of services provided by ISPs as utilities to be provided at lower cost and lower margin. Then there are those who are disruptive in their own ways by driving their businesses and the channel forward by adopting technologies and digital platforms to improve operational efficiencies, grow revenues and provide a first-class customer-experience. At Entanet, our focus throughout the disruption has been on providing the best possible service and transforming ourselves to firmly place our customers at the heart of our business. While this has meant adopting new and emerging technologies, what we’ve learned throughout our journey is that there’s more to transformation than just the digital element.Read More »

Posted on Jan 24 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Getting in on the action – opportunities in the SME market
Unless you’re an analyst by trade or nature, wading through market research to pinpoint opportunities can be at best time-consuming and at worst, difficult. So wouldn’t it be great if someone did all the reading for you and produced a guide to the opportunities that they’d identified on your behalf, leaving you time to do your actual day-job?
Look no further, for that is exactly what we’ve done. Our latest ebook – Connectivity opportunity in the SME marketplace – is a guide to the opportunities we’ve identified by analysing the latest stats to be published by Ofcom in their SME Consumer Experience Report 2016, which was published earlier this month.Read More »
Posted on Jan 17 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Without connectivity DX is dead
Although the concept of digital transformation (aka digitisation, digitalisation or DX for short) has been around since as early as 2010, it’s really taken off in the last year, with Google searches for the term reaching a peak in November. It’s more than just a buzzword though; looking beyond the hype you can see the trend of businesses of all sizes “investing in new technology and business models with a specific focus on customer experience”. With this focus on providing the best possible customer experience (who, let’s be honest, vote with their feet) it’s obvious that businesses of all sizes must embrace DX in order to remain competitive. The good news is that, as a communications reseller, you’re in a great position to capitalise on the opportunities that businesses going through their DX journey bring because, quite simply, without connectivity DX is dead.Read More »

I’ve been with Entanet for a year, but what a year it’s been! 2016 is our 20th year of trading and we’ve achieved most of our strategic goals, there’s just one more to go but we’re not quite at the end of the month yet. Of everything that we’ve achieved this year, I’m most proud that we were awarded the BS EN ISO 9001:2015 quality management accreditation; have delivered against our business objectives in the face of increasingly pressured margins and relaunched our partner portal, synergi, to provide partners with a system that is much more feature rich and user friendly than it’s predecessor.
