Bett 2023 Highlights

exa logo

As another Bett draws to a close, we’re reminiscing about our attendance and the meaningful conversations we had with our partners and customers. 

It was fantastic to see the show so busy, with lots of familiar faces and a few new ones too! 

For those who didn’t manage to visit our stand this year, you missed out on our circus theme! This year we wanted to push the boundaries and get people talking – we certainly did that judging by the queues of people! 

It was all about our approach to delivering your internet services and the fact that when you come with Exa managing your different products doesn’t need to be a juggling act. Our award-winning Protect & Connect® solution, your products will be centrally managed by us, freeing up your valuable time and reducing your costs. 

Here’s some of the highlights:

Over three days we had people rolling up to our circus themed stand to find out about the wonders we had in store for them.

We also launched our new partnership with Smoothwall which will see us provide their market-leading solution Smoothwall Monitor as part of our Protect & Connect bundle.

Our Exa strongman was popular with students, teachers and partners. Did you take a picture? We want to see! Tag us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.

During the show we had a variety of presentations throughout the day covering topics such as The Exa Foundation, DfE guidelines and monitoring. Here’s Alan Thompson from our partner hi-impact giving a presentation on STEMlive. A series of live lessons, curriculum-aligned activities and experiences, led by scientists and STEM experts. 

Our visitors were also able to enjoy some freshly made popcorn as well as having the opportunity to spin the wheel for prizes.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to stop by and say hi, we hope you all enjoyed Bett as much as we did. We look forward to seeing you in January next year at Bett 2024.

Is DarkLight connectivity best suited to you?

Dark fibre is perfect if you are looking for a potentially limitless, ultrafast connection with complete flexibility and control.

If you fully rely on the internet, a dark fibre connection could be the best option for you.

Is Leased Line connectivity best suited to you?

Leased Lines are best suited to you if you have high bandwidth requirements and need a reliable, uncontended service.

It is ideal for you if you regularly carry out large uploads and downloads, use cloud based services and a VoIP telephone system as well as video conferencing, for everyday communication.

Is GPON connectivity best suited to you?

GPON is a great choice for you if you need gigabit speeds but don’t need them to be symmetrical. It is becoming more widely available across the UK but may not be immediately available to you yet.

Is Rural Fibre connectivity best suited to you?

If you want to make the move to full fibre, but are based in a rural area, this option is for you.

Is FTTP connectivity best suited to you?

If you have a number of users who use cloud-based applications to upload and download data on a daily basis, but don’t transfer large amounts of data, FTTP might be your best option.

Is Gfast connectivity best suited to you?

If your line cannot support a minimum of 100Mbps, this connection is not for you. Gfast must meet the speed as a minimum. 

If your line meets this need, and you’re looking for an ultrafast, consistent and reliable connection without the hassle and upheaval of construction work – this could be a good fit.

It’s worth noting that Gfast is a stop gap to FTTP, and is not a technology that is likely to be around for a long time.

Is FTTC connectivity best suited to you?

If you need more bandwidth but don’t really need a guaranteed speed, FTTC could be for you. It is widely available throughout the UK, making it suitable as a main connection. As this connection provides higher speeds than ADSL, it is also a good option for a back up to a leased line.

As with ADSL, once the PSTN is turned off in 2025/26, FTTC will become virtually obsolete and at the very least you will require FTTP to remain connected.

Is DSL connectivity best suited to you?

DSL connections offer very limited bandwidth so it might be right for you if you typically use the internet for less data-intensive tasks. If you’re sending emails, browsing the web, downloading very small files and working with small amounts of data – you should be fine with DSL.

It is worth noting connections based on copper wire, like DSL, will be switched off in the UK by Openreach, with a phased approach due to begin at the end of 2025. If you don’t have a fibre connection at the moment, you’ll need to upgrade this as well as move to a VoIP telephone system.
