A leased line provides a fast, low latency and dedicated internet circuit for your business. This means you will not share your bandwidth with anyone else giving you total access to your bandwidth at any time of day. You can choose the line speed required and can increase this to the maximum circuit speed should your business needs change. Leased lines also operate as a symmetrical connection meaning your download and upload speeds will be the same, other forms of internet connectivity usually offer a reduced upload speed impacting on business applications. Arc Systems understands how important connectivity is to keep a business running, therefore leased lines come with a high level of reliability and increased SLA over other forms of internet connections.
Correct network design not only contributes to performance but also how it can cope when things go wrong. When single points of failure exist in your network they can put at risk the operations of a business. Arc Systems have a long history of designing and building resilient networks that deliver the performance and speed required for applications and servers as well as implementing connection resiliency to offer the highest amount of uptime.
Our LAN implementations can cater for multigigabit and low latency connectivity with resilient switch design to make sure servers stay online. Additionally, our WAN connectivity offers High-Availability Firewalls and dual Internet links to keep branch offices and remote workers connected to the business with security being at the forefront of our design.
DSL connections offer a widely available internet connection across the UK. DSL services come in a few different variations with the most popular being FTTC that can offer up to 80mbps download speeds. This means the connection runs on fibre to the exchange to provide faster speeds and can then connect to your business over a traditional phone line. We also cater for ADSL/2+ services where FTTC has not been rolled out yet and can still achieve download speeds of up to 24mbps.
4G and 5G have become an increasingly popular method of connecting to the internet due to its reach, ease of installation and the high speeds these services can offer. Arc Systems can provide and install 4G & 5G firewalls and routers to incorporate into a business network that offer the security required with internet access. Options such as static IP addresses and large data packages are available.
Arc Systems has been providing secure and reliable remote and home working solutions for many years. Those same solutions have enabled businesses to cope with the recent challenges of COVID-19 where long term remote working has been required. Arc Systems’ Firewall range offers easy to deploy remote access and includes the latest in security standards to ensure company data is protected when traversing the Internet.
We offer the easy to use on demand SSLVPN connection, this is where software on your mobile device can connect back to the corporate network and allows you to access resources such as shared files or databases. We also offer SD-WAN technology to implement a more permanent secure office connection designed for remote offices or long-term home workers. SD-WAN implementations are a simple way to extend your office IT infrastructure to where it is needed most.
Arc Systems is partnered with 8×8, a hosted telephone provider to offer an easy to deploy and full featured telephone system. 8×8’s cloud-based system means you no longer require expensive and complicated hardware installed at your office, all this is hosted by 8×8 and just the handsets require physical deployment. Because of this setup, it is easy to have staff working from the office or at home and the system leverages your internet connectivity to carry voice services.
Arc Systems is also an experienced Microsoft Gold Partner and has been deploying Microsoft Teams to businesses. This software offers a great way to communicate and allows for improved communication with the use of instant messaging, voice calls as well as offering video conferencing abilities.
Managed Wi-Fi for internal and external locations. Full survey and heat map capability with bespoke designed Wi-Fi and infrastructure.
Arc Systems offer business grade data and voice connectivity services ranging from copper to fibre Ethernet to Unified Business Communications via 8×8 to integrated voice within Microsoft Teams.
For more traditional phone systems we also offer SIP solutions to get those calls running over your existing internet connection saving you a significant cost than soon to be retired ISDN services.

ExpressRoute Direct lets you connect directly into Microsoft’s global network at peering locations strategically distributed globally. As ExpressRoute connections do not traverse the public Internet, they offer more reliability, faster speeds and lower latencies than typical Internet connections. If you are deploying an enterprise Azure environment or you are a heavy O365 estate using a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute connection to transfer data between on-premises systems and Azure can also give significant cost benefits.
Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN), is a software approach to managing a wide-area network, offering ease of deployment, centrally managed, reducing costs, and improving connectivity between HQ and branch offices, home or remote workers and the cloud. SD-WAN technology delivers a high-quality experience to a remote office or home worker securely, reliably, and efficiently.
Openreach announced in 2015-16 that from 2020 you will no longer be able to purchase ISDN lines with a target date of 2025 for a switch off date. They have now revised that date and have stated that you can purchase ISDN lines up to September 2023. There will be a forced migration phase between April and December 2025.
By December 2025, the traditional analogue phone network (the Public Switched Telephone Network, or PSTN) will reach the end of its life and newer fibre based digital technologies will take its place. This means that around 16 million lines and channels will need to be upgraded to alternative products over the next few years.
Fibre to the premises (FTTP) is a pure fibre connection from the exchange, into your business. It offers higher broadband speeds to specific premises in areas that have been enabled for FTTP (speeds up to 330/50MB/s).
