Wireless Link Boosts H&K Office Efficiency
H&K in Rugby have two sites (manufacturing and shipping) which were
connected via a rented Kilostream (64kbps) leased line with leased
Cisco compression equipment to compress voice calls and provide
intra-office data communication. H&K wanted to reduce costs
whilst improving intra-office communication.
Daconi replaced the leased line with a point-to-point wireless link running
at 140Mbps. This link simultaneously supports data traffic and
carries an E1 (2.048Mbps) PABX line interface for up to 30
simultaneous voice calls.
Ralph Skinner, H&K IT Manager, said "This utility is working very
well for us. We expect to see a return on investment of less than
three years based on leased savings alone. The extra bandwidth is
dramatically improving our intra-office communications."
