With a finite number of businesses in the world, telecom and internet service providers are constantly vying for their own services in a large and competitive pool. When connecting customers to service options at their address, businesses need to be guaranteed that they are provided with the best possible service network available.
As competition in the telecom industry continues to expand, the type of internet service providers and the services they offer are becoming more and more complex. These days, the connectivity options are nearly endless, so it makes sense that telecom professionals are wondering how they can go about finding the best connectivity solutions for their needs.
In the past, researching bandwidth solutions was incredibly labor-intensive. From tracking down location data to manually inputting data points, telecom businesses wasted a lot of time on a research process that didn’t always deliver the best results. Whether your current option is a free service that offers lower quality results, or you have to outsource your requests, there’s a better way.
With the robust tools available to telecom professionals today, manual research—and the costs and potential errors that come with it—are no longer necessary. Instead, automated tools enable your company to scale services to a larger customer base, create more nuanced approaches to growth in demands, and simplify data acquisition and input variables.
To learn more about the research tools that help telecom businesses keep up in the modern world and transform your bandwidth research process, read on.
With the number of tools and technologies available today, it’s easier than ever for telecom professionals to identify and gain access to bandwidth options. However, with the influx of bandwidth location tools over the past decade, it is clear that some options are superior to others.
Ever heard someone brag about how they purchased something on wholesale? By avoiding the retail price, they have benefited from purchasing a large amount of something that, when priced out by the individual item, comes out cheaper.
Carrier location access is the process of finding the location of a carrier’s infrastructure. It’s important to know this information for two key figures:
In two previous blog posts, we gave an overview of the services a software solution should provide, including a rules-driven process; automating serviceability; costing and pricing across your on-net, off-net and near-net assets; dynamic visibility for who should see what; and an expandable architectural runway to meet your future needs.
In a previous blog article, we gave an overview of the services a software solution should provide in order to automate your serviceability and costing needs. This article will focus on building upon the costing automation to apply automatic markups for any sales channel.
Many of our customers report having been told by external software vendors or other internal stakeholders that they can provide an “automated” markup solution, but those customers learned the hard way that the term “automated” has different meanings for different people.
As the world becomes more and more reliant on the nearly endless capabilities of the internet, there are also more ways to use it more effectively.
These days, businesses are turning to cloud computing so that teams can run applications, host and store data, and perform a number of other functions that allow them to operate optimally. This makes reliable connectivity not just a preference but a necessity for remaining competitive in the marketplace.
This reliance on reliable connectivity has created a massive opportunity for connectivity service providers to provide the fastest option with the best bandwidth capabilities. While the most accessible service is a direct connection to the source of the infrastructure, which is referred to as on-net, it is not feasible or cost-effective for connectivity providers to build infrastructure in every single building.
So although there are many benefits to on-net telecom connectivity, professionals in the telecom industry might be forced to consider other alternatives. In this blog post, we go over these options, the many benefits provided by on-net connectivity, and the importance of getting a solution quickly instead of spending valuable time researching.
At some point in our professional lives, we’ve all run into a situation where one organization in a partnership isn’t able to hold up their end of the bargain.
A fiber finder is a tool or service that allows users to distribute or find information on the location of fiber-optic infrastructure.
Fiber finders are often used by professionals—including providers, agents, and professionals—in the telecom industry to find where a lit building, which is referred to as “on-net,” is located or where the closest near-net infrastructure exists. Beyond the specific location of the fiber, these tools also generate data to offer insight into which carriers have a presence in a specific region, the competitive landscape of the region, and the fiber and bandwidth demands of the local consumers.
This blog includes helpful information for those interested in learning more about the features of a fiber finder and the benefits that can be derived from using one.
