BT Unveils Priority Business Class Fibre Broadband

BT Business has unveiled its new fibre broadband service, BT Business Total Broadband Fibre, offering download speeds of up to 40Mb/s, from £30 per month. The service gives business traffic priority at times of contention and the UK’s fastest upstream speeds of up to 10Mb/s*, allowing users to get more than ever before from the internet.

The new service allows businesses to run multiple VOIP, high-definition video conferencing and business-grade cloud applications plus download emails, web-pages and FTP files concurrently, to reach new customers and better market themselves. It will also make home working a reality, allowing staff to remain connected to the office at all times.

A dedicated broadband “fast lane” also puts business user traffic first at times of contention to help firms continue to work faster, do more, reduce operational costs and boost productivity.

Nigel Stagg, managing director, BT Business, said: “28% of businesses are already using faster broadband to expand their website capabilities, and another 25% are using it to drive more processes online and employ more bandwidth-hungry technology according to our research last year**. BT Business Total Broadband Fibre gives businesses capacity and reliability, with the reassurance of a priority service, to enjoy the best possible online experience. We are committed to rolling out higher speeds and additional coverage across the UK during 2010.”

Businesses in Muswell Hill, Whitchurch and Glasgow Halfway have already been enjoying the faster 40Mb/s broadband service through a BT trial. The service will now be made available to approximately 500,000 homes and businesses from 31-enabled exchanges by late February. A further two million homes and businesses will be able to access the services by late summer following the roll out of the technology by Openreach, BT’s local access division.

This announcement sees BT Retail confirm that it will make fibre-based broadband available to 40 per cent of the UK – or some 10 million premises – by summer 2012. 2.5 million premises in total will have access by late summer and four million by the end of 2010.

From 26 January, new and existing BT Business customers in an enabled exchange area will automatically be eligible for the fibre service. 50 per cent of UK businesses can currently also receive ADSL 2+ broadband speeds of up to 20Mb/s at no extra cost to copper services.

First Electoral Roll Update of the New Year

Tracesmart, providers of online Electoral Roll search tools, have announced the release of the first Rolling Register u p d a t e s of 2010. The company hold the edited Electoral Rolls f r o m 2003 onwards, with their most recent addition being 2010 Electoral Roll data, which was released in December. The new data will ensure that individuals using Tracesmart’s people search facilities will have access to the latest Electoral Roll information available.

The use of online Electoral Roll searches to find long lost friends and relatives has grown increasingly popular during the past few years. For providers of such services it is essential that they u p d a t e their Electoral Roll data at the earliest possible opportunity to ensure their customer’s searches are successful; Rolling Register data allows providers to do just that.

Historically, those eligible to vote could only add their details to the Electoral Roll once a year. However, since the introduction of the Rolling Register, people whose personal circumstances have changed during the year – for example they move home – are now able to register their new details onto the electoral database throughout the year. Tracesmart u p d a t e their Electoral Roll records with this information and in doing so, ensure those that use their people and name searchtools, get the results they need.

The Rolling Register u p d a t e s follow on f r o m last month’s loading of the Electoral Roll 2010 – an achievement of which the company are proud as they made 2010 electoral data available before their competitors. Paul Weathersby, Technical Director at Tracesmart, highlighted how this accomplishment benefited Tracesmart users,

“This year new Electoral Roll data was loaded into our systems in record time, providing our customers with access to some of the latest information available at the earliest possible opportunity. Loading new data swiftly significantly improves our customer’s tracing success rates, as it allows our address search and people search tools to provide the most up-to-date results available.”

In addition to loading new data regularly, Tracesmart also work hard to fill in any data ‘gaps’. The Electoral Roll opt-out rate has risen to 46% of eligible voters in the UK, a gap which could hinder tracing efforts – however Tracesmart minimises any impact by providing their customers with additional datasets to search.

“Our unique Tracesmart Register database is compiled f r o m various data protection compliant sources and currently holds 38 million records, which helps us to bridge the opt-out gap. We continue to source new data all of the time; our monthly Electoral Roll amendments via the Rolling Register is just one of the data acquisition projects which highlight Tracesmart’s commitment to providing customers with access to the most up-to-date information available.” Weathersby remarked.

A Solid Solution for Digital Assets - One of the greatest opportunities for many organizations involves the potential streamlining of their content structure for print, mobile or web applications. The time that it takes to structure content for these applications costs many organizations time, money and lost opportunity. A reliable content management system can help to create a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

A Solid Solution for Digital Assets

Many organizations own hundreds of thousands of digital assets. These include corporate logos, branding material, audio and video clips, still and stock photography, and a variety of archival content. Many of these assets were acquired over long periods of time and at great expense to the organization. Unfortunately, many organizations are unable to maximize the benefits of their digital assets due to a lack of an effective digital asset management solution.

Due to the critical nature of having digital assets organized and easily locatable, many organizations have implemented a digital asset management system. These organizations may have a slightly better grip on their digital asset management than an organization with no formal system. However, over time an organization’s needs change, which oftentimes necessitates customization, retraining of staff, and/ or the integration into a content management system or back-office software package.

For this reason, it is important to find consultants that are well-versed in tailoring a new or pre-existing digital asset management system to meet the current needs of the business. For example, an organization may be looking to find a digital asset management system that centralizes and manages the rights and permissions of a significant portion of all published editorial content, containing text, illustrations and photographs. Such a system could help non-technical staff members reuse both legacy and fresh content across print and digital media more effectively. Additionally, the organization may want the final implementation of the the digital asset management solution to be in-house.

For this example, many product options are available in the digital asset management market. Although the organization knows what capabilities they want, a prudent decision would require an interactive technology agency that can deliver an integrated content management system to help the organization refine its requirements and manage the request for proposal process.

A third-party consulting business that understands the technology, can assist in the refinement of requirements, and ensure an objective selection of vendors is indispensable. The mark of a truly valuable consultant is in their ability to quickly distill an organization’s needs for digital asset management and not only help identify the appropriate vendor, but also provide a new way of thinking. The type of thinking that helps the organization ensure they get the most out of their investment through the implementation of the digital asset management system.
