Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA), signifying a new dawn

As a business owner it’s important that you mitigate risk and future proof your business in preparation for Openreach’s PSTN switch off in 2025. The 2025 deadline might feel like a long time away but sales of PSTN are due a hard stop in 2023, with exchange taking place from 2021, you can’t afford to wait. SOGEA marks one of the biggest shake ups in the industry as we switch from analogue to digital replacing existing Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) services. SOGEA simplifies the ordering process with the removal of and need of a phone line, making the whole process easier and faster whilst opening a natural path to VoIP services.

  • What is Annex M?

    Annex M is an optional feature of ADSL 2+ which boosts the upload speed by trading off about 10%-15% of the download speed.

  • What is Elevated Best Effort?

    Elevated Best Effort improves speed during the busiest times on the network. Elevated traffic is given preferential weighting within the BRAS (Broadband Remote Access Server) which gives a higher IP throughput under congestion during busy times.

  • How does FTTC work?

    Similar to ADSL, Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) is an asymmetrical next generation access service based on ADSL2 Technology. The service is provided by fibre from the serving exchange to the nearest street cabinet and then by copper cabling between the cabinet and customer premises. By reducing the length of copper cabling required to deliver the service, dramatic increases to both downstream and upstream speeds are achieved compared to the conventional all copper cabling used by ADSL. In order to receive a FTTC service an active analogue (PSTN) line with BT is required. If a BT PSTN line is not available, Claranet are able to deliver a new BT PSTN line as an additional service.

  • Why is IPv6 important?

    IPv6 was designed to succeed the existing IP addressing system of IPv4. Every device that connects to the internet requires a unique IP address. Under IPv4 the number of available addresses is running out. IPv6 resolves this issue by using a different addressing method that allows a greater number of addresses. IPv6 is set to become the standard addressing system of the internet, hence its' importance.
