Claranet to connect ip.access across continents

Claranet has been selected by ip.access, a leading developer of femtocell and picocell solutions, to provide high-speed reliable and efficient collaboration between its global partners. Claranet will supply a private network solution which will allow real-time collaboration with ip.access developers globally with connectivity between the UK and India.

ip.access will be upgrading to Claranet’s MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) service which will increase bandwidth between networks from 10mb to 100mb. Claranet was selected for its ability to provide a reliable, secure and flexible solution within the aggressive timelines set by ip.access. This new service also follows a history of providing existing infrastructure solutions.

John Constable, group IT manager at ip.access said:

ip.access relies on enabling our talented teams from India and Cambridge to collaborate in a real-time environment without having to worry about data integrity or time delays. We share high volumes of data every day and required a solution that would provide the best speeds and reliability possible. Claranet’s processes, people and ability to offer a complete end-to-end solution led us to choose them as our trusted partner.

As part of the service, Claranet will implement WAN optimisers which allow greater traffic management and speed in data transmission at both ends of the network, with the ability to cut traffic by as much as 70 per cent and deliver significant annual cost savings.

Claranet’s UK managing director, Michel Robert, commented:

Many businesses are branching out globally to reach diverse distributed talent pools - often this can leave organisations playing catch-up when it comes to network and communications provision. Claranet helps enable businesses bring together a distributed workforce by managing networks which will deliver increased efficiency and reliability as quickly as possible. ip.access is focused on enabling its teams to do the best possible work, and we are pleased that Claranet will be continuing to support the business in their global collaborations.
