Supporting Voice and Business Critical Applications across multiple sites

Harness converged voice and high-speed data connectivity

Reliable, highly available MPLS-based WAN solution that supports voice and business-critical applications across multiple sites.

MPLS is SBL Group’s fully-managed WAN (Wide Area Network) solution and is ideal for multi-site businesses that want to improve service while reducing costs. MPLS delivers the performance, reliability and security that businesses need to make effective use of today’s multi-media services.

As the way people work, interact and collaborate undergoes profound change, companies are seeing growing demand from employees for more flexibility in where they work and more choice in the way they communicate, such as IP telephony, unified communications and cloud-based services.

By fully integrating our IP telephony hosted voice solutions and SIP Trunks, with a MPLS core network, you can benefit from having all your IP voice and data services supplied by a single vendor – with just one point of contact, one bill and one set of SLAs.

MPLS-based WAN service

Delivering secure connectivity to enable you to easily connect and communicate efficiently between each geographically diverse office location as part of a single network.

A choice of access services

With an extensive range of access types ranging from ADSL and FTTC Broadband to FTTC Ethernet, EFM or fibre optic Ethernet, MPLS offers a suitable access option for every location regardless of availability, site criticality or budget.

Network monitoring and management capabilities

Enabling you to easily monitor performance and availability of the technology that your business relies upon.

Flexible pricing options

Choose from either an upfront charging model or our unique rental model which removes the cost to change associated with moving to a new MPLS supplier whilst also aligning your need for an opex-based purchasing model.

Integrated IP telephony with Cloud based Telephony or SIP Trunks

An end-to-end communications solution that reduces the complexity of taking your services from multiple providers.
