For many organizations, the delivery of high-speed Internet to remote locations can be challenging. Each area presents various obstacles that can make it difficult to provide a reliable connection. Ideally, companies would like to use a fibre connection, but the heavy costs and logistics involved can make it unfeasible, especially for those requiring temporary connection.


The speeds and reliability associated with a Wireless Solution or Microwave Link are comparable to fibre.


Communications are an essential business service and without a proper solution in place, an unreliable Network can be burdensome on operating budgets. Unfortunately, for some organizations it’s not even a consideration when entering a remote site. Not having a robust network initially implemented on remote sites can leave them vulnerable and end up costing extra to have a patchwork solution installed later on.


Companies, along with their employees are now demanding to have Internet speeds comparable to urban environments as they expand into remote areas. Larger amounts of data are now being transferred and video conferences becoming a daily practice; businesses will require faster speeds and more bandwidth. Organizations can benefit from having an outside party implement a cost effective network solution.


There are a number of benefits to having an outside company assist with designing and delivering a reliable network. The main factor to consider is knowledge and experience of dealing with remote locations. Developing a familiarity with remote locations in many regions and possibly having an existing network established in that area can be extremely beneficial. This can save an enormous amount of time and money when trying to develop a solution internally. Another added benefit is having the expertise to design a scalable network that will grow with organizations, while eliminating the risk of having an overpriced and unreliable solution.


Having a robust network is critical for operations ensuring its experiencing optimal performance with minimal disruptions. This is why having a team of professionals monitoring a specific network 24/7 can eliminate extended periods of downtime and improving overall effectiveness.
