Fibre Fall over

Adding Redundancy

Project Brief

MPR IT were approached by Saga UK to install a redundant link between two of their sites in the South East of the UK. The sites where already connected by a leased fibre circuit and had an old wireless link in place that failed some time ago.

Saga needed to have at least 100mb duplex between their UK Head office and remote site located in the next town over to automatically step in in the event of a main link failure.


Project Solution

MPR IT surveyed the site and using our wireless link planning tools determined which hardware would best suit the environment and Saga’s requirements. Off the back of this survey MPR IT recommended the use of a Cambium Networks solution 5 ghz link. This provided more than the needed bandwidth whilst keeping the costs down. Although a Microwave link was considered, the 5 ghz product was a better fit.

Saga’s network was then set to use the Wireless link in the event of a main line failure.
