“Our platform is designed to give you options as your business evolves, not tie you in. It provides the core IT services your business needs, on demand to you.“
Mike Cullen, Technical Director, Backbone Connect.
The UK is a patchwork of carrier networks, in some cities multiple carriers are available and in others only one has coverage. For this reason a single carrier wide area network solution connecting multiple sites is rarely efficient or cost effective. Another advantage of working with multiple carriers to build your network is the ability to access a complete range of access types. Most carriers offer Ethernet and ADSL, but what about cable, 4G, FTTC, EFM and wireless alternatives? Our core network is interconnected with all major network carriers so we can connect your offices, warehouses, stores, sites and even temporary locations.
Our wide area networks are not only highly flexible; they are also backed by industry leading service levels and a highly response team, but don’t just take our word for it:
“We have our business distributed over several locations across the UK so we needed a resilient ‘always on’ MPLS network and a collocated data centre as well. Backbone Connect have some great technical guys and they helped us design the MPLS and implement it and that went very well. Backbone Connect have been good for us and helped us achieve our ‘always on’ ambition.“
