A network, either private or public, is just a connection between two or more computers. The public network is an industry term used to describe the Internet. ... A private network is a connection between a much more controlled number of computers and is usually local to the physical devices.
Benefits of Private Networks
100% Fiber-Optic Service
Dedicated fiber is symmetrical, which means equally fast upload and download speeds. Symmetrical connections are crucial to businesses that backup data to offsite facilities, utilize cloud services and use voice and video phone systems.
Metro has 3,000 miles of active fiber-optic network and adding 250 fiber-optic miles or more annually. Metro owns and operates the largest fiber-optic network in Central Illinois and the goal is to expand our network consistently year over year in order to serve businesses and rural Illinois with high speed fiber-optic broadband services.
Eliminating speed issues could result in a week's worth of productivity increases each year. If your business suffers from unreliable connectivity due to region or weather, you could be losing thousands of dollars each year. Productivity issues that are directly attributed to slow or unreliable cable Internet could disappear with a dedicated fiber-optic network.
Would-be hackers and information thieves can gain access to business cable Internet with relative ease, due to cable tapping or other relatively simple methodologies. The only way to penetrate fiber-optic Internet is to physically cut the fibers, which will cause the signal to disappear. Fiber-optic Internet is one powerful way to increase your company's protection against cyber crime.
