These days, with the amount of competition that plays out between different telecom companies, it can be a struggle to find the right bandwidth provider. There are so many different factors that determine the right provider, which leaves many searchers unsure about next steps.
Luckily, certain companies have developed tools that automate the research process and provide clear information on tech assets in single or multiple locations.
In this blog post, we’ll provide information about BandwidthFinder, the most comprehensive bandwidth locator tool on the market that allows you to go beyond single-location data to manage multilocation projects with ease and accuracy so that you can find the best bandwidth service provider.
What is a bandwidth locator tool, and who should use it?
Before we jump into detailing the benefits of a bandwidth locator tool, let’s discuss the reasons why these tools are so necessary:
With so many locations to evaluate and choose from, the manual labor involved in research creates a huge time suck, which pulls the researcher away from other important tasks.
Competitive products force users to spend a lot of time making sense of the data derived from fiber maps or data tables.
Many of our customers are simply asking, "Can't the software do the work for me?"
Ultimately, all of this comes down to the fact that people want fast, accurate information that requires only a minimal amount of time spent on gaining that information.
Different Approaches to a Bandwidth Locator Tool
Over the years, companies have developed tools that address the issues we’ve stated above. However, not all bandwidth locator tools are created equal.
Many research tools plot data on a map or a data table. While this is helpful for the user to know where a tech asset is located, they still need to do their own research in order to find out the technical information about the asset. In other words, these tools are not fully automated, and they’re still asking a lot from the user.
Unlike other bandwidth locator tools, our product offers:
Solution-based algorithms to reduce the amount of time and labor to find the right bandwidth service provider
Data sets of address-level fiber carriers and broadband carriers as well as solution providers included and private data options available
Professionals, enterprises, and providers can all benefit from this type of tool.
We call it BandwidthFinder.
What are the main benefits and features of BandwidthFinder?
Companies no longer have to choose a connectivity solution that’s closest to their facilities. Instead, they can now choose options with features that have the most impact on the evaluation of single- or multilocation deals. These features include:
1. Rating Precision
This feature allows the user to pick the best solutions for them at one or many addresses. If the rating of this metric is particularly high, you can be confident that the quality and consistency of that service match the rating.
Not all buildings are created equal, but with this tool you will be able to see which buildings have strong on-net options as well as which addresses will require you to work with a solution provider (off-net), or possibly work with a carrier to build in their facilities that run nearby (near-net).
The filter options in BandwidthFinder allow you to change the solution just by filtering in or out specific data points.
3. Easy-to-Use Interface
Dashboards give the user an easy-to-use interface to see the solution built across a multilocation opportunity.
The My Lookup and My Project interface leverages the bandwidth ranking algorithm that’s designed to reduce the time and labor it takes to find a single-location solution or a multiple-location solution without manual research.
The benefits of BandwidthFinder don’t end there.
BandwidthFinder was developed to make finding connectivity solutions as easy as possible. In addition to rating precision, customization, and an easy-to-use interface, users can utilize project sharing, guest access, personalized data, network presence, and more.
