Single sites and closed customer networks
Via our iDirect platform we bprovide both services for a single location or vessel as well as closed customer networks consisting of multiple locations which can optionally be clustered in a Group Bandwidth service. The Group Bandwidth service is a pool of bandwidth which can be shared by all customer sites, meaning that if one site is not using the bandwidth - this bandwidth comes automatically available for other customer sites. This is an ideal solution for customers with sites in different time zones or for example for a customer who has a production location and a location for staff whereby the production location uses bandwidth during business hours and staff can use the bandwidth after business hours.
