One gigabit per second (Gbps) is equivalent to 1000 megabits per second (Mbps) internet connection. One Gbps is also called 1000 Mbps or 1 GIG. This is the fastest broadband Internet connection available in India, enabling you to browse the web and upload or download files faster than ever before.
On an average today, a household has 4-5 devices connected to the broadband such as TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, printers, home security systems or gaming consoles. All these devices consume bandwidth from the same connection, which means the resulting speed and experience on each device takes a hit. If you have a high-speed connection such as 1 Gbps, multiple devices can deliver great experience simultaneously.
Another great benefit is the symmetric upload speed which other providers can’t offer. This means that not only will you be able download files and content at lightning fast speed, but all uploads will also take only seconds.
With Spectra 1 Gbps, you can:
  • Use multiple devices simultaneously without sacrificing speed or compromising on experience on any
  • Stream movies, download videos and upload photos with virtually no buffering or waiting
  • Play games online knowing you have the fastest Internet speed available
  • Work from home with the greatest efficiency and reliability you can get from a home Internet connection
  • Upload heavy files such as photographs, videos and work documents to the cloud in seconds.
All these things can be done simultaneously using just one connection. So why not?
There is nothing that you can’t do with 1 Gbps. You can binge watch in 4K videos on multiple Smart TVs, play multiplayer online games and do HD video conferencing and all of it simultaneously.
  • Download 3 MB MP3 file in less than half a second
  • Download 350 MB TV episode in 3 seconds
  • Download 950 MB 1080p HD TV episode in 8 seconds
  • Download 15 GB 4k movie in less than 2 minutes
  • Upload to cloud faster than transfer to external drive
  • Online multi-player gaming without buffer
We are offering you the fastest speed with unlimited data volume at the prices that you currently pay for your existing services. At the same price, you can get much more. Also, 1 Gbps is about the speed experience more than consumption limits. Your consumption could remain the same, but speed of 1 Gbps will enhance the experience.
We will provide you with an ONT device that terminates the fiber cable at your location. Along with this, you will receive D-Link DIR 825 AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit router that is designed to give the best experience of 1 Gbps connection. With this, you can:
  • Simultaneously stream HD and 4K content on multiple devices
  • Seamlessly play multiplayer online gaming
  • Video call without buffer
  • Backup to cloud or download software and program updates in seconds
  • Set parental control on usage
  • Connect to storage, printer etc. via 4 Gigabit ports and USB port
The router comes at no additional cost with Spectra 1 Gbps package with a refundable security deposit of Rs. 2000. If you are an existing Spectra user, you can call us on 1800 121 5678 today for more details and for scheduling installation.
With our 1 Gbps package, we set you up for the fastest broadband experience. The actual speed that you get depends on number of devices being used and their configuration. For best performance from your broadband package, we recommend a direct ethernet (LAN) cable connection. Minimum requirement for a laptop to deliver 1 Gbps speed:
  • LAN Port 1 G
  • Mother Board intel i5 (i7 recommended)
  • RAM: 8 Gb
  • Processor 2.4 Ghz
Internet speeds over a wired connection (Cat 5 or Cat 6 ethernet cable) are faster compared to wireless speeds.
No, the plans are truly unlimited. There is no data capping on the volume you consume. However, if you choose our limited time promotion offer of package costing Rs. 799 for six months, your data will be capped at 150 GB.
For best performance from your 1 Gbps connection, we recommend a direct ethernet (LAN) cable connection. Internet speeds over a wired connection (Cat 5 or Cat 6 ethernet cable) are faster compared to wireless speeds.
There are many factors that adversely impact your home Wi-Fi performance, these are:
  • Types of wireless devices its processor and operating system: older phones and laptops that have older Wi-Fi protocols 802.11g, n will give you lower speed and worst still slow down the output from the router.
  • Invest in a dual band 802.11AC router. With dual band technology, you can set-up 2 SSID's, one on the 2.4 GHz band for slower connection but longer range. And the less occupied 5GHz frequency band for higher speeds at a shorter distance. Your Spectra connection comes with D-Link DIR 825 1200AC at no additional cost for a refundable security deposit.
  • Number of devices in use: the more the devices, the more the load on the router and the lesser the speed.
  • Distance from the router: the 2.4 GHz channel gives you range but lower speeds, while the 5 GHz channel is less crowded, gives you higher speed but for shorter distances.
  • Network interference in your home. In high-rise buildings, with multiple flats on the same floor, signal interference from your neighbours router impacts the reach and speed of your router.
  • Your internet browser: Plug-ins and add-ins affect browser performance and therefore results of your speed test.
  • Building materials, in-home obstructions affect signal strength.
  • Location of your Wi-Fi router and its height. do place your router in a central, elevated spot. In perhaps your living room at an ideal height of 6 Ft (like the top of a shelf of your book rack) so that furniture and other obstacles do not block its signal. Your router should also be away from sources of electrical interference such as microwaves, cordless phones and TVs.
There are many factors that can adversely impact your 1 Gbps experience. In most cases, this happens when the device being used doesn’t support such high speed. Laptops fitted with a a gigaport support up to 1 Gbps speeds.
The next thing to check is if your device is plugged directly into the router via an Ethernet cable versus using Wi-Fi service. A cable is the best way to experience your device's full speed. If you connect via Wi-Fi, your speed will decrease since wireless connections are slower. Wireless connections can also be adversely affected by extreme distance versus close proximity to the router as well as the number of walls or other obstacles between your device and the router.
The last thing to check is if your router supports 1 Gbps speed. We recommend using the D-Link DIR 825 AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit router that is designed to give the best experience of 1 Gbps connection. With this, you can:
  • Simultaneously stream HD and 4K content on multiple devices
  • Seamlessly play multiplayer online gaming
  • Video call without buffer
  • Backup to cloud or download software and program updates in seconds
  • Set parental control on usage
  • Connect to storage, printer etc. via 4 Gigabit ports and USB port

The Wi-Fi infrastructure in hotels works almost in a similar way as in our home with some difference. The difference is, at a big hotel, more access points are required to cover the area and hence more switches need to be deployed to connect the access points. Also, these access points need to be placed strategically to cover every corner of the hotel. These access points are then connected to a gateway that displays the login page and redirects your visitors to it. To cater many users in one place, the hotel may deploy a property management system (PMS) with integrated bandwidth management which allows policy setup such as bandwidth per user, time out when idle, etc.
In other words, hotels need to deploy managed wifi solution at their premises. Spectra has deployed managed wifi solution to various hotels. Read more to find out.
Managed WiFi is nothing but outsourcing WiFi network management to an experienced managed service provider. WiFi is an essential service for businesses and the updates, maintenance, and security for a network can be a daunting task for a business as it requires a specialized skill set to manage all this. A managed WiFi solution can save your business time and money by taking care of equipment, network configuration, and maintenance and hence free up your IT team to work on more important needs of the business. Managed Wifi provides a fast, reliable, and secure connection to your customers and employees.

The Internet is a set of interconnected networks. These networks co-operate together to pass traffic. An Internet service provider (ISP) is connected with other ISPs. These ISPs are divided into 3 categories.
Tier 1 ISPs: Tier 1 ISPs include large corporations that manage giant cables through the oceans, connecting major countries.
Tier 2 ISPs: Tier 2 ISPs act as a bridge between Tier 1 and Tier 3 ISPs. They exchange traffic through peering networks.
Tier 3 ISPs: Tier 3 ISPs are the regional ISPs that buy internet transition from Tier 2.
The ISPs charge for the infrastructure they are providing and managing.
SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined wide-area networks. This technology uses software to control the connectivity, management, and services between data centers and branch offices. WAN connection helps you with connecting your branch offices in different geo locations to your head office or your data center. Traditionally, enterprises are using a private WAN service like MPLS. But with the adoption of cloud applications, WAN bandwidth’s requirement is going up, and getting additional bandwidth with MPLS is highly expensive. SD-WAN solves this issue by providing a WAN overlay being transport agnostic. This WAN overlay helps you to optimize bandwidth and load balance traffic by directing WAN traffic across multiple WAN links. Hence the performance requirements of the enterprise network are easily met.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to networking management that uses a software application to communicate with underlying hardware infrastructure, to improve network performance and monitoring. With the adoption of cloud computing, the impact of increasing mobile usage, and continuing business pressures to reduce costs, it is important for a network architecture to be dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable.
SDN is designed to make the network more agile. SDN helps to create a network that can dynamically handle many different services, allowing you to consolidate multiple services onto one common infrastructure.
WAN or wide area network are large communication networks that connect locations over a wide geographical area and offer dedicated traffic for the organization in a more secure way than the internet. WANs are powerful business tools. WAN lets large organizations communicate internally faster and more efficiently. WAN is quite useful to business for the following reasons
Through WAN businesses use common resources to operate.
Offer higher bandwidth than the normal broadband connection
WAN lets you distribute workload efficiently
WAN providers offer a specific amount of uptime as part of your SLA ensuring guaranteed uptime.
As WAN encrypts the data, WAN lets you share sensitive data with all your sites without having to send the information over the Internet.
A leased-line is a dedicated, fixed-bandwidth data connection. A leased-line is symmetrical so it offers businesses a reliable, internet connection with guaranteed upload and download speed, and uptime. A leased line works the same as a fiber optic broadband. A leased line works by sending pulses of light down a pure fiber optic cable, and the data that is being transmitted travels at the speed of light. Leased line packages can deliver at speeds of up to 10Gbps.
A leased-line is a dedicated and fixed bandwidth data connection, available for your business needs whereas FTTH i.e. fiber to the home is a fiber-optic access solution designed for residential deployments.
With the rise in OTT services such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hotstar, the internet speed requirement has gone tremendously up, compared to the previous decade.
Typically, the advised internet speed for streaming standard definition (480p) video is at least 3 Mbps. However, the minimum download speed certainly varies between streaming services and will need to be significantly higher if multiple devices are likely to be connecting to the internet at once.
Irrespective of the streaming platform, better-quality video needs much higher broadband speeds. HD video (720p or 1080p) streams need a speed of at least 5 Mbps, while for 4K streaming is a minimum of 25 Mbps.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking is a communications technology for business and home phone systems. SIP trunks are used to streamline your business communication. Typically, a SIP trunk is the virtual version of an analog phone line. SIP trunking allows you to make local, long-distance, and international calls over the Internet. It significantly lowers the cost of your traditional phone calls.
SIP trunks utilize a packet switch network, in which voice calls are broken down into digital packets and sent across a network to the destination. Each SIP trunk supports SIP channels. One SIP channel is equivalent to one incoming or outgoing call. A SIP trunk can carry an unlimited amount of channels, so users only need one SIP trunk no matter how many simultaneous calls they need to attend.
