WB Power Services
Powering Up: A Connectivity Triumph in the Face of Adversity
Integra's SD-WAN solution swiftly empowered WB Power Services with robust connectivity, avoiding exorbitant excess construction charges.
The Digital Disconnect: A Power Provider's Predicament
WB Power Services, a leading provider of generator sales, hire, and maintenance, found themselves in a predicament. Their logistics depot in Chorley, nestled next to a large industrial unit, was virtually cut off from the digital world.
The mobile signal was non-existent, and the local fibre infrastructure was absent. The company's operations were severely hampered, and the staff found themselves unable to use their phones or access the internet.
The Costly Connection: A Challenge in Chorley
The company's location presented a unique challenge. Traditional internet services were not an option due to the lack of infrastructure. A quote from BT for a leased line came with a six-figure excess construction charge fee, an exorbitant cost that was hard to justify, especially with the possibility of relocating in the future. The company needed a solution that was both cost-effective and efficient.
Breaking Barriers: Integra's Swift Solution to Connectivity Challenges
Integra Networks stepped in with their innovative SD-WAN solution. A system was swiftly deployed on top of the industrial unit, gaining line of sight to the local cell towers. Radio links were installed in the yard and site offices, along with access points to deliver connectivity.
In a matter of days, WB Power Services had access to over 200Mbps of internet connectivity. Staff could now communicate with the outside world, use their centralised project management tools effectively, and avoid the exorbitant leased line fee.
