Case Study: Layered Technologies

Reducing daily upload times from 48 hours to 0.5mbps.

Layered Technologies, a Bristol-based software provider, connectivity and IT security consultancy has a huge international remit working across EMEA with a wide client base from startups to blue chip organisations.


With heavy reliance on cloud access, having access to a stable, consistent and low latency connection is vital. So upon moving to a new city centre office and the discovery that they could only access a 0.5mbps ADSL line, this was a critical issue.

With daily uploads taking as long as 48 hours, and with teams working from wireless dongles as a stop-gap solution, Layered Technologies approached us to solve this critical connectivity issue.

“On the business park where Dalter UK are located, there was no fibre to the cabinet (FTTC), so they were running on ADSL copper and the only alternative was a Leased Line. For a business of Dalter’s size, this was just overkill.”

Lee Watts - Managing Director at Layered Technologies

It took just three weeks for the connection to be live, after which Layered Technologies could utilise the total power of full fibre, providing a huge boost to staff productivity and morale.

The circuit speed has also enabled Layered Technologies to implement a range of online tools such as Gmail, Office 365, Adobe, Cisco spark and Webex, providing video conferencing tools that would have struggled on their previous connection.
