Claranet’s Mobile Broadband service is an over-the air-connectivity offering that has primary, backup and SIM only variants, with data plans ranging from 1GB to up to 50GB. The mobile connectivity can be deployed as a primary connection for a site or utilised as a backup connection for when a fixed line services fail. Claranet removes the IT administration and management effort by fully managing the service from procurement and configuration to providing ongoing support.
The mobile broadband service can directly integrate into MPLS networks, enabling new sites to be easily and quickly incorporated with corporate networks, removing the need for additional firewalls, hardware or licenses. This gives staff the freedom to work remotely while ensuring that IT departments can maintain control and the integrity of their data.
Dave Palmer, Head of Network Design at Claranet, commented: “With these upgrades we’re now able to offer much more flexibility to our customers who have higher data usage requirements, helping them to get new sites and staff connected to high-speed connectivity services quickly and easily, where ever they are. This is of particular benefit to industries with short deployment lead times, such as retail and construction, enabling them to start on-boarding, transacting, and carrying out digital processes at new locations sooner.
“In addition, the larger tariffs make our mobile broadband service a much more compelling and cost effective back-up solution, when compared to ADSL, FTTC and Ethernet. Should the primary line go down, our mobile broadband kicks in to gear immediately, giving our customer peace of mind that they can keep their businesses running no matter what,” he concluded.
