In order to meet the current demands of the business and enable future development, FluidOne installed a private wide area network (PWAN) solution using a mixture of Ethernet and Fibre connectivity.
A centrally hosted Cisco firewall allowed not only every connected site to talk to each other, but also for Internet breakout through the same network..
Each site had very different requirements for bandwidth and uptime, therefore a variety of technologies and carriers was used. All core sites required resiliency to ensure continuity of the ordering and stock management system, a business critical application. At each site either Ethernet Fibre or EFM was delivered with a second resilient route into the PWAN in the case of an outage.
All satellite sites were also connected into the PWAN using ADSL. As sales people moved and changed, these sites could be added and removed from the PWAN with ease enabling scalability.
All sites needed to be able to access the main server bank at headquarters in Kidwelly and data held at the warehouse. With the PWAN in place, the teams have been able to be more productive while also modernising how they work.
Our business ADSL uses ADSL2+ technology to achieve download speeds of 20Mbps, whilst providing upload speeds of 2.6Mbps.Learn More
