Leased Lines to Ramp Up Your Digital Transformation
82% of Indians working from home feel frustrated due to network issues and latency. Some of the technical issues a remote workforce faces include lags during video conferences and calls, hampered video quality while streaming webinars and live content, delay in uploading and downloading files, failed connection to VPNs, and fluctuating internet connectivity while working on virtual machines. These setbacks lead to a drop in productivity and poor communication with clients, colleagues, and other stakeholders.
When your internet connection loses data packets, takes hours to transfer data, or hampers your productivity with slow speeds, it becomes a massive challenge to adapt to the digital changes. Additionally, as your business grows and you accommodate new personnel to your network - a decline in connectivity strength further hinders smooth workflow.
What you need is a reliable internet connection for your business, which can match your steps with the changing requirements of the post-pandemic world.
Syncing your growth with transforming industry requirements
These drastic digital transformations need to be backed by robust internet infrastructure to enable seamless connectivity for businesses. Also, it cannot be ignored that your business has unique requirements — and your internet connectivity needs to be tuned to the same.
Leased lines with high-speed connectivity and uncontended bandwidth enable consistent networking that works for every business scenario.
A leased line connection is technically designed to eliminate all the problems faced in the case of shared, traditional networking models. This dedicated connection ensures consistency seamlessly to ultimately enhance productivity among employees and clients.

These traits of leased lines directly solve the networking hurdles faced by your business. Furthermore, your leased lines are exclusively optimized for you. This is done by understanding and prioritizing your business requirements and then syncing them to deliver the best solution for your network.
However, the business models constantly evolve, and internet needs are no different. This is where the exclusiveness and bespoke deployment come into the picture—to suit the unique requirements of your business.
Tackling changing business needs - how can leased lines help?
The nuts and bolts of SMBs involve constant up-gradation to new technologies, increasing client acquisitions, and most importantly, adding new hires to the business network. When it comes to picking a network solution for a propelling business, these aspects come should be considered:
- Increasing headcount on the business network
- More users on VMs and VPNs
- Increased need for security and confidentiality
Leased Lines address these concerns with their premium connectivity factors, and benefit the enterprises in their quest to grow their network of employees and clients—while having security and maintaining high confidentiality.
Benefits of leased lines for SMBs:
- Self-tuned pay-as-you-grow model to avail variable internet speeds
As your business expands, and headcount and network traffic increase, you should not face interruptions such as lags in video and audio, and jammed screens. The purpose of hiring new employees is to increase organizational productivity; poor connectivity acts counterproductively in that regard by slowing things down for your employees.
Moreover, businesses often don’t prefer to invest in high bandwidth as they feel they will end up paying for all of it—even on the days when it is not required.
Dedicated internet access solves this dilemma by providing the freedom to modify your internet bandwidth according to your anticipated business requirements.
Tune your bandwidth—Control your OPEX.
- Avoiding network downtime with high SLA overlays
According to Gartner, the average cost of IT downtime is $5,600 per minute. Moreover, it takes an average of 23 minutes to get back to a task after an interruption. If your business carries out high-level data transactions and payment processing, then you cannot afford network downtime or any packet loss. This is one of the significant problems caused by low network speeds and a shared internet connection.
