What is contention

Firstly, try and understand bandwidth as a pipeline full of water that comes to your house, the municipality (ISP) has a couple of large pipelines and then connects your house and all the other houses in your street to the pipeline. The amount of people connected to that pipeline would be the contention ratio. So, the pipe has 10 people on it, ratio is 1: 10. In this scenario it is unlikely you will be using the water at the same time so the water pressure should always be good. Now imagine what would l1appen if they put a townhouse complex on that same line and 100 people now used It. The water pressure would drop and everyone would complain. With uncapped accounts ISP’s try to determine how many people can be put on one pipeline before the
“water pressure” drops to an unacceptably low level and then prices their product accordingly. Similarly, if there are 10 people on our network the ration is 1: 10. In this scenario it Is unlikely you will be using the internet at the same time so the speed should always be good. Now imagine what would happen
if they put a townhouse complex on that same line and 100 people now get connected to it. The speed would drop and everyone would complain. Frankly you can make an uncapped product any price you wish, it boils down to contention, let’s say the raw cost of 1 Mbit of bandwidth is R6750 all in.
You can make a “premium” service and contend It at 10 to 1 making It R675 per user
You can make an “ok” service at 25 to 1 at R270
You can make a “basic browser” service at 67.5 to 1 at R100

WIRELESS SERVICES

The only primary and complementary open access, layer 2 connectivity solution to rival fibre – Blue Dot Data enables businesses to connect single or multiple branches across South Africa to each other, their service provider of choice or any Cloud via a neutral facility from 2 – 100 Mb/s. A range of solutions and QoS options are available to meet the most demanding business needs, coupled with exceptional service guarantees.

Our network is built using cutting edge technology of the highest standard, backed by rock solid power and monitoring systems and offering 24-hour, 365 day proactive support.

FIBRE TO THE ESTATE

Body Corporates, landlords, tenants and owners are usually keen to deal with us, as they have only 1 supplier to vet and can keep the infrastructure to a minimum ensuring that the aesthetics of the complex are not disturbed or impacted in any way and that connectivity equipment remains unobtrusive. This is a significant consideration in addition to the fact that we are about 30% cheaper than the large corporate competitors. We will deliver a 100Mbps connection to the the complex. Each unit owner or tenant will then be able to choose their connection speed based on the pricelist. All our services will be delivered on the month to month basis, so if you are not happy then you can cancel with 30 days’ notice.

The approach that we take depends on whether the complex is existing or still being built. Where the complex is already built we can roll out services that are initially wireless in nature. This enables us to provide internet within a couple of days rather than a couple of months. We broadcast signal from one of our towers in the vicinity. This is either a direct connection or a connection that is partly wireless and partly fibre. This is done at our cost. Where the complex is not yet built or if built but not yet paved, we can roll out fibre.

 

In all instances each user will get:

  • Installation including Wi-Fi router and cabling to the unit
  • Uncapped Data
  • No shaping, No fair use policy, No throttling
  • Guaranteed minimum speeds
  • No out of bundle charges
  • Option of using our voice service and saving up to 40% on their Telkom bill
  • The same infrastructure can be used for an intercom, gate services and for camera solutions

FIBRE

If your business relies on the Internet in order to function, you need to choose a last mile connection that works as hard as you do. Fibre is the fastest last mile technology currently available. It is capable of transmitting high volumes of data at great speeds. It’s also invulnerable to theft and interference.

As a Tier 1 Internet provider, we light our Fibre, so we are in control of the way data is transmitted over the line. It means you benefit from our premium Quality of Service protocols. Ensuring that what you need works when you need it. Every time. When you deal with us you are dealing with the source. That’s how we guarantee 99% uptime on all our connections.

10Mbps, 20Mbps, 30Mbps, 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 200Mbps, 300Mbps (charges may apply, motivation required) Guaranteed 99% Uptime Synchronous, Uncontended, Uncapped, Future Proof Suitable For: Demanding Internet users, large file transfers and downloads, HD streaming, Video conferencing.

VOICE OVER IP (VOIP)

VoIP is also called Voice over Internet Protocol (IP). It simply means sending voice calls over the Internet as opposed to traditional telephone lines. For the user it feels exactly the same as making a conventional call. Transmitting voice over the Internet is almost equivalent to sending any other data over the Internet.

No matter where you or the dialed party is, we can connect you affordably. We have direct connection agreements with other telephony service providers. You therefore receive reduced call rates which in turn save you money on your overall telephony costs.

VOIP GATEWAY

Enjoy the cost saving benefits of routing your Voice calls via our network without having to purchase a new PBX with a VoIP Gateway. A VoIP Gateway is a device which converts telephony traffic from analogue to digital. Telephone calls are converted to digital packets, enabling telephone calls to transport over a local area network (LAN) or other IP-based network.

Using our VoIP Gateway, all your outgoing calls will be routed to our Voice network (Voice over IP solution) without having to change your current PBX system. Our solution has proven to be interoperable with all major soft switches and SIP-PBX brands.

HOSTED PBX

Feature Rich, System Ready Web Based PBX. An IP PBX is a switchboard or Private Branch Exchange which uses Internet Protocol. It is a server which uses your Internet Connection to route all your incoming and outgoing calls. Your customers can get hold of the right person immediately. Routing can be based on any means you choose: Time, skills or hunting. You can either use your existing Internet Connection, or we can assist you in setting up a Fibre or Wireless Solution at your premises.
