We posted some time ago about how we were working to provide Fibre Broadband access to a client who was not able to get a super fast internet connection for their business. We were able to beam them super fast fibre broadband from a property across the valley which has already made a huge difference to their businesses.
The client runs two businesses: The Model Centre selling model trains and other similar items and Hill Farm Cottages which are luxury self catering cottages in the North Yorkshire Moors, right next to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
The Model Centre is both a shop on-site and also an e-business. A huge amount of their trade is done via their website. Managing and maintaining that website is critical for them. They can now easily upload images and videos to the site and access orders and emails from customers with ease.
Hill Farm cottages are now able to offer their guests an ultra fast internet connection, which is expected by customers and allows a connection with the outside world even when you are renting one of their cottages.
Point-to-point wireless networking
The job was quite complex – we used wireless point-to-point technology to deliver the internet across the valley and then on to each cottage and building on the site. The connection and network is then split into VLANs meaning that each section is on its own network. Their standard BT routers were not adequate for the task, and so Draytek routers were installed to provide a PCI DSS compliant firewall, which adds security to their system.
We were really pleased to receive their latest newsletter this week, in which they wrote about the new broadband install.
If you would like to have point to point internet installed so you can beam your broadband to locations that do not enjoy a fast speed but are within line of sight of one of your buildings that does, give us a call on 01482 424402 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
