Digital connectivity is considered the third most important factor when searching for office space,

behind only cost and location. As technology increases in the workplace and the number of tech businesses grow, the importance of digital connectivity is going to increase further. However, until recently there has been very little information available to tenants about the quality and choice of internet connectivity.

“Critically, 32% of tech workers believe that more businesses will be attracted to the city if landlords were able to offer greater/improved connectivity.”
Manchester Digital Report, 2016
High-speed connectivity remains a priority for digital tech businesses with 28% reporting digital infrastructure as a challenge. ”
Tech Nation report, 2016
“Great connectivity has already been displayed by properties that have achieved Wired Certification, including the GLA’s own City Hall.”
38% of technology workers in the North believe improved connectivity would make Manchester a more attractive city to UK based companies.”
Tech Nation report, 2016
“Better data on business access to broadband and other digital infrastructure would enable cities to ensure that companies get the connectivity they need in order to thrive and grow.”
Tech Nation report, 2016

Designed for connectivity ratings

With a growing trend towards connectivity ratings for buildings, it will become commonplace for information to be collected about the internet connectivity and infrastructure available in commercial buildings, that will be made publicly available to businesses of all sizes looking for office space and assist with lettings.

Secure supplier agnostic telecommunications points of presence buildings

Our Node solution includes ‘Riser Management’, which means that all your internal wired infrastructure is professionally managed ensuring that your tenants receive the services they require, where they require without the need for third party service providers to run additional cabling throughout the building. With Node, service providers only need to connect to the Node and have instant connection to anywhere in the building without causing disruption to tenants or possible damage to the building.
