I'd like to make adds/moves or changes to my existing services.
Please contact your Account Manager in the first instance. If you don’t know who your specific Account manager is please call: 0203 176 1006
What are the lead times?
We have an average lead time of 5 working days (but we can often do it quicker than that). The Technology Consultant assigned to you during your move in will manage the whole process to ensure your business is up and running when you need it to be.
What broadband speeds can I expect to receive?
We deliver a resilient and secure 1Gbps or 10Gbps fibre connection into your building providing huge bandwidth for your business. Bandwidth is shared between the users but we actively monitor distribution and make sure there is plenty to go around.
Check out www.speedtest.net to see the speeds you can expect. If you require it there is a dedicated service available but we find customers just don’t need it as our OSIA Open, Secure, Internet, Access over delivers on upload and download speeds.
How secure is my data?
Our secure, environmentally-controlled data centres ensure reliability and resilience, with proactive monitoring ensuring maximum availability and minimum downtime. With co-location and online backup, your data is safe and secure, for business continuity, whatever happens.
We will happily talk you through all of the security processes we have in place and how we protect your business from Denial of Service attacks and evil twins and all of that techy stuff. Some of our customers use it to promote their business and so we’re happy to tell you more when you are ready.
How do I change my Voicemail password?
Your Excell Polycom handset comes with a business grade voicemail facility. You can retrieve your voicemail from your handset or by calling your full telephone number from another device. See the user guide here
How do I manage my Excell Dot11 Wi-Fi deployment?
Visit our WiFi overview here which tells you a bit more about Dot.11. Alternatively, you can visit our knowledgebase here to learn exactly how to manage your WiFi deployment. If all else fails, contact your Account Manager for further assistance.
Why can't I use another broadband or voice provider?
Excell has an exclusive partnership to deliver Internet and Voice Services to Workspace Customers which is in the best interest of customers themselves.
Excell provides all of the cablings in the building and into the comms cabinet in each unit, and we also manage the main comms cabinet in the building and provide a high level of security for it. We simply can’t have a situation whereby a number of different suppliers have access to the comms room and the servers inside it. It also means we can provide I high level of Network maintenance and security across the building-wide network.
We have a team of network architects and engineers who look after each building who monitor bandwidth requirements and deal with unethical hackers literally on a daily basis.
