Revving Up Connectivity: CarBee's Journey to High-Speed Internet
CarBee races ahead with Integra's SD-WAN service, leaving slow internet in the dust and shifting their business and home operations into high gear.
The Starting Line: CarBee's Race for Connectivity
CarBee, a family-owned business, is not just about selling top-quality pre-owned cars. They are also a hub for car enthusiasts, offering a wide range of performance and styling parts for various car brands, making them a key player in the automotive aftermarket industry in Lincolnshire.
However, operating from a rural location, CarBee found itself in the slow lane of the digital highway. With a bustling on-site office, a large workshop requiring Wi-Fi, and a home located 300 meters away, CarBee needed a robust internet solution to ensure smooth operations and a comfortable home environment.
Speed Bumps: CarBee's Connectivity Challenges
CarBee's rural location posed a significant hurdle. Traditional internet service providers could only offer a few Mbps due to the lack of fibre infrastructure.
This sluggish connectivity was insufficient for their growing business operations and their home needs. Moreover, they required a reliable IP configuration for their CCTV system to ensure continuous surveillance of their car lot.
The need for a fast, reliable solution was immediate.
Crossing the Finish Line: CarBee's Internet Upgrade with Integra
Integra Networks stepped in with their innovative SD-WAN service. After a successful connectivity survey, Integra utilized local mobile network operator transmitters to provide a bonded 4G connectivity solution. This solution delivered 100Mbps, with the potential to reach over 200Mbps when needed.
Integra installed the primary connectivity in their office unit and connected their workshop using point-to-point radios. After coordinating with their security company, a secure path was established for the CCTV system. Finally, their home was connected to the network, ensuring high-speed internet for the family.
