A reliable fibre Internet connection is a crucial driver of success for Nigerian businesses, which are becoming more reliant on technology.
Resource planning has become more intensive in a technology-driven business environment. Beyond talent acquisition, supplier control and managing costs, choosing the right connectivity solution is one of the most important resourcing considerations. Any business that’s based online (and this number is quickly increasing in Nigeria) needs a super-fast Internet connection to host data and applications and to ensure that all critical information is backed up. But this is not the only reason – digital transformation is another important consideration.
Digital transformation can only be fully embraced in a company if you have access to high-quality networks and services.
As more devices are connected, networks will have to perform optimally to keep up. Emerging digital technologies like AI will require the transmission of huge amounts of data. The adoption of this tech in Nigeria will depend heavily on the reliability of communication networks. These applications might require the time-sensitive upload and download of data with a rapid transmission between devices.
Digital transformation relies on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in the manufacturing sector. This allows companies to reimagine business models and how they can use this tech to become more productive. IIoT allows you to measure, benchmark and predict outcomes using machine data. This data can be used to drive best practice across the factory floor in plants based in different locations and to connect industries that depend on each other to reach the end goal of producing quality products.
We don’t need to imagine the future, it’s here already. Airbus, the European multinational aerospace corporation, launched a digital manufacturing initiative called The Factory of the Future. Its sole purpose is to streamline operations and increase production capacity.
Fibre is king
Fibre travels at far greater speeds than traditional copper lines. It works by sending digital information via light signals through underground glass cables. Fibre retains its signal strength over great distances and with greater bandwidth, which allows for faster connectivity. Fibre-optic cables are a secure connection for your data because fibre networks don’t radiate signals – this makes it near-impossible for them to be hacked into or tampered with.
This is what makes a fibre connectivity solution so appealing. A fibre Internet connection allows you to:
- Extend the geographical reach of your business.
- Increase collaboration between remote offices.
- Create remote backups of your data to bolster disaster recovery.
- Strengthen your cybersecurity.
- Gain access to near-limitless processing power.
