We understand that every company has different needs for internet connectivity - from basic ADSL to 10GB Leased lines. We supply, monitor and more importantly support our Internet connections. All of our clients all benefit from a 99% guaranteed uptime across our network and we include a free back up line as part of the installation when possible. Our services include providing diverse routes and building resilience into your connectivity during the planning stages to make sure that your teams are consistently connected.
The local area network in your office is the heart of connectivity for your staff and it connects them to the services they require daily. We provide data cabling systems using Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a and also Fiber - this also includes the containment, planning and testing. We provide managed wireless networks connected to our NOC (Network operations Center) We use Managed systems because so many places are saturated with Wi-Fi which can have an effect on the signals in your office affecting connectivity. Managed systems will change frequencies to consistently give you a better connection and as its connected to our NOC we can make changes if we see issues so your teams don’t have connectivity issues.
Firewalls are the key piece of equipment when it comes to protecting your network. Our Managed firewalls let you do what you need to do whilst we monitor, maintain and keep up to date this critical piece of hardware. We only install Cyberoam firewalls and have done for several years. These are tried and tested in the Media and events industry. When you take a firewall from us it is connected to our NOC so we can monitor threats and issues ahead of your teams realising there is an issue. Partner this with our Antivirus software for peace of mind when it comes to protecting your network and Hardware.
As the Media and Events industries grow there is an increasing demand for satellite offices. Occasionally they cannot be in or near the same place. We provide the planning, technology and skills necessary to connect these buildings, from short distances to different countries. We can use the latest technology for long distances and provide dig teams and fiber for short distances. Our installation teams are CSCS accredited for new builds.
