Construction: A Complete Internet & Voice Connectivity Managed Solution
NG Bailey is the largest independent engineering, construction and services company in the UK. Due to the wide variety and nature of their projects, resilient connectivity: internet & networking, is an absolute must; Engineers, planners and site managers must be able to access the latest, up to date, plans and information at the drop of a hard hat.
Some of the projects that NG Bailey undertake are situated in areas where standard broadband and connectivity is not available which creates a challenge for the connectivity solutions they require to carry out operations effectively…Enter Grapevine Connect.
In order for NG Bailey to see the product in the flesh, we sent a couple of our rugged internet boxes for a trail run. The objective being to provide and maintain reliable WIFI and internet services no matter where in the country their next project is located, including basement areas where standard mobile signal is not available!
Combining industry leading products and engineering including external/internal antenna’s technology to ensure the strongest possible cellular internet connection can be obtained, we have been able to solve NG Baileys connectivity issues whilst concurrently upholding their existing IT infrastructure and security measures.
Central Hub Solution
Having previously used a mixture of various internet solutions, a key requirement we were able to meet is ensuring that NG’s IT team can expand their corporate network from headquarters, out to all the remote site offices which enables the managers and project leaders to not only access the necessary information but to also keep the company updated with site progress which is vital so that the company can make the necessary high-level corporate decisions.
Grapevine Connects’ solution also helped to reduce a great financial expense, allowing NG to cut back on the exorbitant costs of their previously used solutions. Not to mention the time and resources saved as previously their IT engineering team would have to visit each and every site throughout the country to set up and configure the necessary solution.
We utilised a versatile VPN solution that easily integrates into the company’s existing data centre network. The beauty of this technology is that it only requires software and licensing; it can grow, and also shrink, depending on the current needs of the company on a month by month basis.
Now that the centralised hub is sorted, we move to the remote sites. Under our complete managed service when a new construction site goes live, Grapevine pre-configures a new device and dispatches it to site. The site manager then simply plugs the device in and it automatically connects to the cellular networks to establish an internet connection. Then, using pre-defined configuration, the remote device creates a 256-Bit AES encrypted VPN connection back to the corporate headquarters. DNS and other IP addressing is pulled down through the tunnel and the remote site is instantly able to connect to all the needed corporate resources as if they are sat in the company office.
