Connectivity is at the core of every successful business. It touches everything we do, from the first email of the day through to the final phone call of the evening.
So, having the right connectivity is essential.
Juno’s business connectivity solutions go beyond the cloud.
We can cover all of your requirements, from quick, reliable and affordable broadband to fast and resilient Leased Lines, as well as traditional calls & lines and cost effective SIP services.
And our expert team will be with you at every step of the way to advise, provide and maintain your connectivity, to ensure that you are always connected to your customers, your people and your business from wherever in the world you are.
Connectivity is a world full of acronyms causing confusion, however the main options are briefly explained here. We work with suppliers such as Openreach, Virgin, KCom, Nine Wholesale and Gamma to ensure a breadth of options optimised to the specific voice and/or data needs of our clients.
If your business depends on a synchronous and dedicated connection to the internet, then a fibre leased line is the premium choice for reliability, security, speed and throughput.
A fibre leased line is a dedicated connection delivered directly to your premises from the local exchange, providing robust, reliable and guaranteed performance, irrespective of the line’s length. It is the ideal option for businesses that regard reliable, high-speed internet access as mission-critical across both voice and data.
Juno, as an independent telecoms solution provider, will assess Leased Lines from numerous network providers to offer businesses like yours the appropriate symmetrical upload and download speeds of between 10MB and 1GB, to ensure there is no wastage and that you pay only for your required bandwidth. Upgrading as and when additional capacity is needed is a relatively simple process.
Prices for leased lines will seem considerably higher than other business connectivity options, however businesses pay a premium monthly rate for a fully-managed service, delivering enterprise-grade, low-latency connection backed-up by service level agreements (SLAs). Various back-up options are also offered, depending on the reliability requirements. As it’s a dedicated line into your building, planning permission and construction timings can push delivery to between 45-90 days.Contact Us
Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)
FTTC is delivered over an analogue line to the building but takes advantage of high-speed fibre connections to a cabinet close to your premises. This removes all the loss characteristics of long copper lines back to the exchange, enabling download speeds of up to 80MB. This product is available in an ever-increasing number of locations across the country, but will require us to do a check on your postcode to ascertain current availability.
It would be very costly to get everyone connected directly to Fibre Broadband. FTTC therefore provides a cost effective way of providing many businesses with the speed and stability benefits of Fibre Broadband.
FTTC comes in various options particualry upload and download speeds, with a converged business option being the favoured one for combined VOIP and IT installations.
FTTC services can usually be available in 10 days and while more expensive that traditional ADSL, it offers significant savings over a leased line.Contact Us
ADSL2+, ADSL2 or Annex M
ADSL is an entry-level broadband service delivered on an analogue line, which provides download speeds of between 2MB and 24MB, although this is very much dependant on the distance to the exchange. Upload speeds are typically below 1MB.
This solution is ideal for small or satellite offices, but we would always recommend that a converged voice variant is used to guarantee voice channels for VOIP.
ADSL is also used as a suitable back-up service for fibre leased lines.
Usually, it is the lowest-priced of all current internet connectivity options, and will typically be delivered within 10 days.
Ethernet First Mile (EFM)
EFM is an affordable means of achieving guaranteed symmetrical speeds using broadband while providing an Ethernet handover interface. The service is delivered via multiple copper telephone lines, usually bundled, to deliver a single symmetric service.
The on-site router handles the bonding and line failures to ensure up time. Typically lower-cost than a leased line, and generally installed in 25-30 days, it can be delivered in upload/download speeds of between 2MB and 20MB.Contact Us
SIP Trunking combines voice and data traffic over a single network connection, unlike traditional methods which deliver them separately.
It can deliver immediate and substantial cost savings.
Juno uses SIP Trunking as its recommended replacement for ISDN, as it provides a more flexible and lower cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls.
SIP Trunking is cheaper on a per channel basis. Set-up costs can be lower than ISDN, it is more flexible in terms of what telephone numbers you can have and where you can have them, and is quicker to install and can offer a robust business continuity service.
Our SIP Trunk solutions are ISO27001-approved, come with in-built fraud mitigation and disaster recovery services and delivers voice, data and business critical applications with 24/7 fault management. It’s compatible with all our UC solutions, as well as Skype for business.SIP Trunks are a standards-based replacement for traditional ISDN. They connect your PBX to the PSTN over broadband or Ethernet connections. SIP Trunks work seamlessly with most of the leading IP PBX systems available in the UK.
SIP trunking is less costly per channel than ISDN and provides flexibility options in use of geographic numbers. It’s easily scalable and provides extremely robust options for business continuity and disaster recovery.Contact Us
MPLS delivers an affordable, reliable and highly secure, private network solution to optimise Wide Area Networks (WAN) and unify communications across geographically diverse office locations.
MPLS will enable customers to easily connect and communicate efficiently between each site as part of a single network.
It delivers multiple levels of QoS (Quality of Service) as standard, to provide optimised network performance, so you can be sure you’re always getting the best from your business connectivity as we seamlessly prioritise critical data.
MPLS delivers a cost-effective solution to meet business critical Wide Area Network (WAN) requirements, enabling support for IP telephony, videoconferencing, Unified Communications (UC), software applications supplied ‘as a service’ (SaaS) and cloud services.Contact Us
ISDN is a business-only digital line (delivered in multiples of two lines or in a 30-line option), which interconnects a traditional phone system (PBX) to the phone network, proving clarity and quality of calls. While it’s very resilient, it has some limitations in terms of portability and flexibility, while BT is aiming to replace all ISDN with IP connectivity by 2015.Contact Us
Analogue telephone lines, historically, are copper wires run from the telephone exchange to your business premises. They are used as single line phone lines, and for Fax/PDQ or modem services, as well as being the transport mechanism for ADSL or FTTC broadband services.Contact Us

What out customers say:
Many thanks for supporting the latest phase of our ground development project here at 3aaa County Ground, Derby. As Derbyshire's home of cricket and as a leading events venue in the region, we require a modern and efficient communications infrastructure. The Leased Line and Cloud based telephony solution which Juno successfully deployed throughout the ground provides us with the flexibility and capacity we need to support our growing business.
Simon, Chief ExecutiveDerbyshire County Cricket Club
Having recently moved business premises we decided to change our telecoms provider. From our initial contact with Juno it was evident that they were a professional organisation that placed great emphasis on customer satisfaction. We were not disappointed. Both the level of service and telecommunications system that were provided was outstanding and I highly recommend Juno to anyone considering a change of telecoms provider.
Adrian, MDKey Survival Equipment
During a periodic review of our operating costs we decided to look at the market for Telecoms. We were a BT customer and the customer service was poor. I wanted to move our office telecoms to a Derby company, with a real person whom we could talk to if things went wrong. We engaged Juno Telecoms and they provided us with a comprehensive detailed proposal that achieved cost savings, along with a new up to date telephony system. I know that when we need to add new lines or geographical numbers, it's just a phone call to George and it's sorted.
Martin, MDOffice Care
George was a pleasure to deal with and could not have done more to guide and support us through the minefield of telecoms options for our new office. He was happy to travel over to Manchester when needed and he was calm and helpful in dealing with issues that arose.
