SMBs Turn To Billion For Stable And Secure Networking Solutions

Demand is increasing from small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) for safe, secure and reliable ways to run a network and connect to the internet, according to BT Business Direct.

The UK’s leading business computing, networking and ITC specialist has said due to changes in the way consumers shop for goods and the increasing reliance on the internet, more small businesses are finding they need to embrace the online marketplace in order to remain competitive. This in turn has led companies to search for reliable computing equipment that is simple to operate and can handle the growing needs of their businesses.

Neil Hale, Networking Category Manager at BT Business Direct said Billion is one manufacturer that is catering for the SMB market by producing award-winning devices that can be relied upon.

He said: “Many SMBs have been making use of networks and the internet for a considerable number of years now, but technological advances, wider adoption of devices by firms and shifting customer attitudes and habits mean it is now more important than ever to have IT equipment that is capable of performing a reliable service while meeting the needs of a business.

“Billion has brought out a range of network devices and routers that has made it incredibly simple for small and medium-sized companies to make use of the latest technology such as smartphones and tablets in the workplace, while running a fast, secure network.”

One of Billion’s best-selling products available through BT Business Direct is the company’s award-winning 4-gigaport wireless ‘N’ modem/router, which comes with a dual WAN interface with one ADSL2/2+ port and an additional Ethernet WAN port for cable/fibre/FTTC connectivity. The 7800N Billion routers also feature a business-class firewall to make sure information and files remain secure, along with ADSL2+ download speeds of up to 24 Mbps and support for superfast broadband up to 100Mbps up/down through the device’s EWAN port. It is also one of the first routers in the UK to ship with working IPv6 support out-of-the-box.

Neil said: “There is a lot of choice out there when it comes to networking options for small businesses but there is no doubt that Billion is helping to lead the way with regard to home and office networking solutions that are simple to use, built to last and won’t let you down.”
