•The following presentation is a look at the broadbandoptions available to a start-up Small/Medium Enterprisein theTallaght, Dublin 24 Area.•Itwill explore a number of broadband connection typesincluding: Wireless, DSL, Satellite, Mobile and Cable.•The conclusions/findings are based on a start-up eventco-ordination business with no more than 2 staff at anyone time.
ADSL: Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. This is a DSL line where the upload and download speeds differ - typically the download speed is faster than the upload speed. DSL: Digital Subscriber Line. This is a method of transmitting data over standard telephone lines - in the UK a variant called ADSL is most common for providing broadband access. Bandwidth: Also known as head-line speed or connection speed. Bandwidth shows how much your broadband connection can send and receive the data per second. It is measured in bits per second (bps) or mega bits per second (Mbps) Dial-up: Dial up or narrow band runs at 56Kbps download speed or less than that. You cannot use your telephone when you use dial-up. Dial-up connection is not as much stable as broadband and gets disconnected periodically. IP address: Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number assigned to a PC. There are two types of IP addresses – static and dynamic. Static IP address is permanent as against dynamic address which changes each time you connect to the internet. Kbps: Unit that measures speed on a broadband line. Kilo bits per second or 1000 bits per second. Megabits (Mbps): Unit of broadband speed. Megabits per second or 1000 kilo bits per second. Router: helps multiple PCs to share a single broadband connection. Wi-Fi: Wireless Fidelity. Wifi users can access broadband on their smart phones or laptops. Wi-Max: Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is a wireless broadband technology used to transmit data over long distances. An enhanced version of Wi-Fi.
•High-speed access to the Internet.•Download data transfer links equal to/faster than 256 kbit/s.•Access to high quality Internet Services.•Transmission of information in a given amount of time (Likelanes on a motorway with many cars driving at one time).
Connection Types: Mobile Broadband Mobile broadband, also referred to as WWAN (for Wireless Wide Area Network), is a general term used to describe high-speed Internet access from mobile providers for portable devices. It refers to the use of GPRS networks and advanced 3G & HSDPA technologies to provide broadband connection to the smartphone users and laptop users. Usually slower than ADSL or cable broadband and the users often depend on the signal strength.Mobile broadband services can also provide wireless Internet access on your laptop or netbook using built-in mobile broadband network cards or other portable network devices, like USB modems (Dongles) or portable Wi-Fi mobile hotspots.
Connection Types: ADSLADSL broadband-Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line is the most commonform of broadband used because it uses a standard phone line found inmost premises/homes. By converting your analogue phone line to a digital(ADSL) line, it can be used to transmit data simultaneously at a high speed.It enables fast data transmissions over copper wire telephone wires byutilising the frequencies that are not used by a voice telephone call. A DSLfilter allows a single telephone connection to be used for both ADSLservices (eg: Web browsing) and voice calls at the same time.
Connection Types: WirelessA high speed internet service technology for portable devices such aslaptops and phones that eliminates need for bulky modem cables. Thebroadband modem has the ability to receive the service and then transmitradio waves which gives computers with wireless capabilities, the ability topick up signals and use the internet. Wireless broadband must be set up ina home/office or in an area which has a wireless router, commonly referredto as a Wi-Fi hotspot
Connection Types: CableThis form of access to the internet uses the infrastructure of cable televisionvia the unused bandwidth on a particular network. One or more wires oroptical fibres are joined together to make a cable. Coaxial Cable and FibreOptic Cable are capable of transmitting speeds in excess of 1gbps You mustlive in an area that has this kind of broadband in order to access it. Phonelines are not needed for this type of connection.
Connection Types: SatelliteSatellite broadband is Internet connectivity provided by satellite, rather than dial-up, ADSL or cable service. Satellite broadband is linked to a dish networksubscriber service and provides speeds similar to other broadband technologies.The Internet feed is beamed from satellite to a dish installed at the subscribershome. Satellite Broadband services are not the most economical method ofInternet access available as far as pricing and accessibility is concerned, yet itcan reach locations where most other forms of Broadband cannot (includingremote, rural & marine environments). Onwave partnered with tooway providesSatellite Broadband to anywhere in Ireland
