When your business depends on a resilient, highly available transmission solution, you can depend on us to make it happen. We design, plan, implement and operate critical networks at all levels in the transmission hierarchy.
High availability transmission networks
Highly reliable and secure transmission networks are fundamental to the success of the UK’s critical communications providers. Long periods of downtime are not an option. That’s why so many providers trust us with their transmission networks, including solutions embracing last-mile access, aggregated backhaul and high capacity core systems.
All our engineers and service teams understand the criticality of what we do. Our transmission networks carry traffic that is of strategic national importance. They are engineered to deliver service levels that are contractually guaranteed to be significantly better than standard commercially available products.
Our design and deployment skills are complemented by a national field force providing a rapid response capability. This assures the delivery of highly resilient services with upwards of 99.7% availability. They are experts in the range of solutions we use to provide highly resilient transmission networks, including microwave, fibre, satellite and third party services.
Experts in remote transmission
Many terminal sites are in remote locations. This means that we need to take an ingenious approach to providing transmission solutions in geographic areas where no other transmission services exist. Our capability is enhanced by the ownership of a large portfolio of sites that greatly assists and de-risks the process of designing and implementing each communications link.
Across mountains and sea
A great example of our unparalleled transmission capability is the high capacity, high availability transmission services we deliver on behalf of BT to some of the most remote TV transmitter locations in the UK. Our ingenious solution was based on high capacity microwave systems requiring advanced link engineering skills to guarantee a high performance solution across challenging over-water and mountainous terrain.
From microwave to fibre
The microwave engineering technology in our solution for BT is matched by our ability to deploy high capacity fibre based core networks. A strategic national backhaul network, Arqnet is our core fibre network and carries real-time traffic.
Communications providers and broadcasters
The breadth of our transmission capability sees us providing vital services to many of the UK’s leading communications companies and broadcasters. These include BT, BBC, ITV, Vodafone, Everything Everywhere, Telefonica O2, Virgin Media, Tracker UK, Sky and internet service providers.
