What We do

We design, install, manage and maintain network communication systems. Our customers give us their requirements and we make it happen, Everything from VOIP telephone systems, Remote site mobile broadband to network infrastructure. We are certainly bespoke and every request is taken seriously.

We are based in Eastbourne, East Sussex and we offer of services throughout the UK.

Ok, back to our recent 4G installation

The 4G system comprised of a 4G dish which included a firewall router, The dish was wired back to the network cabinet with car6 duct grade cable.

The main hub in the network rack is a 24 port Unifi gibibit POW switch. with 12 x Unifi access points through the office spaces.

The system is managed through a Unifi cloud key which lets us view and configure the system remotely.

The Equipment

The LHG LTE kit is a device for remote locations that are within cellular network coverage. Mount it outdoors, on a pole, mast or any high enough structure, and connect even where cell phones can’t. Due to it’s large sized high gain antenna, the device is capable to connect to cell towers in extreme rural locations, giving you the ability to provide last mile internet access where nothing else is available.

The unit is equipped with one Ethernet port, has a built in high quality Category 4 modem for speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s downlink and 50 Mbit/s uplink.

RBLHGR&R11e-LTE includes LTE modem that supports International LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 20, 38 and 40.

We also installed an internal network which comprised of Ubiquiti Unifi network and access point equipment.
