Get Switch Off Ready With DrayTek

It’s estimated that around 33%* of businesses are still using ISDN as their underlying communications infrastructure. With the switch off, all lines will convert to either SoGEA or SoGFast, making way for a faster way to enjoy the online world.

In order to ensure a reliable connection, it’s crucial for businesses to consider upgrading their routers to stay ahead of the ever-evolving digital landscape. DrayTek routers are renowned for providing resilient connections, offering an enhanced performance and faster data transfer speeds.

Get Switch Off Ready with DrayTek

Things to Consider:

Don’t let outdated infrastructure hold you back, with options for both large business and home workers, the DrayTek portfolio offers a range of future-proof options to enhance productivity and connectivity.

Here’s our top tips to consider when selecting a router in the lead up to the switch off.

1. VoIP Compatibility & Speed
Ensure that the router supports VoIP protocols. This is essential in light of the switch off. Routers with high data transfer speeds will be better suited to accommodate the increased demand for data-intensive applications, online collaboration and cloud-based services.
2. Quality of Service (QoS) & Security
QoS features prioritise specific types of network traffic such as voice or video over others, ensuring a consistent and reliable performance. Strong security measures are paramount in business environments. DrayTek routers feature advanced firewall capabilities content filtering and VPN support to safeguard sensitive business data and communications.
3. Quality Manufacturer & Support
DrayTek are well renowned in this space; with over 25 years’ experience, you’re in good hands. Paired with ProVu’s expert technical team, you can rest assured you can access a high level of support as and when you need it. What’s more, DrayTek routers can be easily maintained and managed through the intuitive VigorACS central management system.
4. IPv6 Support
As IPv4 addresses become scarcer, ensuring new routers support IPv6 is important in future-proofing your solutions.
5. Redundancy & Failover
Business continuity is key. Opt for routers that offer failover options, allowing seamless switching between different internet connections when outages occur.

Channel Live 2022!

What a whirlwind two days we had at Channel Live last week. It was great to see some of our existing customers and catch up with what their plans are for the rest of 2022. It’s encouraging to see that after a rough couple of years, the industry is alive and thriving.

Maybe even more so! As we had some great discussions with new up and coming companies as well as some completely new companies coming into the sector for the first time. It was amazing to meet everyone, and we hope you will be in touch soon.

Day 1

With the first day underway from its 10am start we were blown away with how many people travelled to see the show. We were hesitant at first, that after the years we have had would anyone want to turn up to big events like this! We were definitely proven wrong and happily so.  Maybe it was everyone hungry to get back to business as normal, or maybe it was just all the free freebies going! (I know our Tech Director, Muhammad was very pleased with his loot from this year).

Continuing with the first day, our MD Darren Garland had a presentation in theatre 2 discussing the value branching out into IoT could bring your business and what our sister company, Alliot Technologies, can bring to the table.

Find out more about what IoT could do for your business

It was great having members of Snom and DrayTek on the stand. I know many of you appreciated being able to ask questions directly to our suppliers. Also getting a first hands on look at the new products coming out this year from Snom, Yealink, Cisco and Draytek.

With the first day coming to a close, many members headed to the Channel Live Gala Dinner, which we were told was a beautiful dinner, cracking entertainment and good times had with friends from up and down the country. Our Team was very well behaved and were in bed by 9 with it being a school night, ready for the second day.

Day 2

The second day, our team was refreshed and ready for another long day. As with many shows, the second day was slightly quieter than the first; Which I’m sure some of the others that were in attendance of the Gala dinner were quite thankful for, since they ended the party around 3am.

With another talk in theatre 2 from our very own Sales Manager, Anna Maria Marzec-Smith. Attendees joined Anna as she discussed how to get the most from your distributor and her top tips on the questions you should be asking to get the most value from your suppliers.

As the second day came to an end it was all hands on deck to pack down the stand. It is amazing to watch something that was full of people become so empty so quickly. I think everyone was ready for bed after an amazing two days. We can’t wait for the next one!
