Connectivity

Leverage the power of a truly cutting edge network

Kuiper Technology provide connectivity via state-of-the-art infrastructure, covering 180 towns and cities nationwide. The network has 270 fibre ethernet exchanges, and an additional 495 delivering Fibre to the Cabinet, all across an exclusive resilient dark fibre core.

We can deliver a high capacity, low latency network capable of providing Ethernet services from 10Mb up to 10Gb that interconnects with the UK’s leading Tier 1 Carriers, providing solutions across the largest UK network footprint. This means that you get high speed resilient internet services, regardless of location.

We also extend this reach beyond the UK to over 130 countries through key international partners.

Business on the Cloud

Real-time control of our network - in your hands

We fully embrace automation and deliver a fully Software Defined Network. By placing automation at the heart of our connectivity solution we are removing much of the complexity and overheads of running the networks which means we can pass significant cost savings to you. The introduction of templates and standardisation means that we have real time control over your solution, enabling many of the configuration changes that are frequently requested to be completed quickly. This ranges from modifying bandwidth to resizing VLAN’s.

Our automation and integration isn’t confined to our chosen network either, we have a fully automated ordering process with Openreach, and other key partners shaving valuable days off the ordering process for last mile connectivity.


Market leading connectivity products

  • Fibre Ethernet

    Available across the UK, Fibre Ethernet offers a dedicated and symmetrical bandwidth service delivered on uncontended fibre access at speeds from 10Mb up to 10Gb, all backed up by our industry leading SLA’s. Ethernet bandwidth can be increased quickly and easily in line with your customer’s emerging business needs.


  • EFM - Ethernet in the First Mile

    EFM is ideal for customers looking for an alternative solution to Fibre Ethernet or ADSL, who need an uncontended service and symmetrical bandwidth. The service is delivered at speeds of up to 30MbEFM is delivered over bonded copper pairs to the customer’s premises, which makes it a highly cost-effective and resilient alternative to fibre-based Ethernet solutions, and with shorter lead time than Fibre Ethernet. EFM is ideal for customers needing a quick installation or who have problems with fibre access to their premises.


  • ADSL

    We offer a business grade ADSL solution with download speeds of up to 24Mb with quick and efficient implementation. ADSL is most commonly used as a backup service.


  • EoFTTC - Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet

    EoFTTC is provided over a single copper pair from your business premises over the short distance to the green cabinets in the street. Unlike standard broadband where the copper then continues all the way to the exchange, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet traffic travels across a shared fibre optic circuit to the exchange. As a result, the extra distance doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation of performance, which allows access to an uncontended, symmetrical service of up to 20Mb with fixed service SLA’s. Coverage can be limited, and can be more limited than Broadband FTTC as not only do the cabinets need to be enabled but the exchanges must also be an Ethernet node in the supplier’s network.


  • Broadband FTTC

    Offering download speeds of up to 80Mb, and uploads of up to 20Mb. This is the next step up from ADSL. By using the same underlying technology of Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) it is offered as reduced cost alterative by being a contended service, so can be impacted at peak times and by other internet users in the area. Able to support one our single services, such as Internet or SIP. For the application of multiple services, you will need an EoFTTC service or better. As with EoFTTC, coverage can be limited, although it is more widely available than EoFTTC.

Resilience is no longer a luxury, it’s an absolute necessity

How long could your business survive without access to its key systems? The rapid uptake of cloud services puts an even heavier reliance on your offices connection to the outside world. Your route to the internet is no longer just about communication, but often now also access to the critical systems and data upon which your business relies in order to function.

This reliance means that resilience is no longer a luxury for businesses, so we offer a range of resilience options to find the best fit solution for your business.

Connectivity for Public Sector & Education

Implementing the right communications solution while delivering real value for money.

Shrinking budgets. Increased scrutiny. They’re shaking up Government and public sector IT spending. But making economies must never compromise public services.

So there’s a real need to work with suppliers who can innovate and help liberate the true value of existing IT and telecoms investments. Because doing more with less has never been as important.

That’s why public sector procurements are now all about achieving specific outcomes. Not the technologies, products and solutions used to achieve them. It’s an approach that favours alert and quick thinking vendors. Those not afraid to be disruptive. Those prepared to take a different path to the entrenched legacy suppliers.

Our Janet Network interconnects mean schools, colleges and universities can maximise the connections and bandwidth they already have while upgrading to our industry leading communications solutions. Educational institutions win in every way: substantial savings, vastly increased flexibility, total control over telephony and dependable, always-on services.

Today, academic institutions must manage the constant tension between controlling costs and the need to deploy supporting technology of sufficient quality to attract high calibre teaching staff, and students.

Communications of the highest order are paramount, not just to support and enable world-class academic research and inter-institution collaboration, but for tuition, studying, enrolment and day-to-day administration too.

At Kuiper Technology we work with the education sector right across the UK to deliver a wide range of innovative and cost-saving communications solutions. Through our understanding of academic needs we have become a trusted adviser and supplier to many colleges and universities.
