Broadband4 provide web-filtered connectivity within the education sector using IDE Group’s internet network connectivity.
The proactive providers of IT services for schools continue to provide new and improved managed and on-site tailored support services that meet the evolving needs of education with the help of IDE Group’s colocation and connectivity services.
Up until recently, the majority of schools bought JANET connectivity through their Local Education Authority (LEA) as JANET offers a web filtering service. However, these links are costly and, with the amount of self-autonomy schools now have, the rules have been relaxed. They can now buy connectivity as long as the right level of web filtering is applied to the traffic.
“Good communication eased the provisioning process for our internal teams, reducing the internal overhead. Having IDE Group allowed us to design and deploy our ISP network to our customers quickly and effectively in response to a changing and evolving business”
The IDE Group team always aim to provide future proof or long-term business-benefitting solutions. In this case, IDE Group put Broadband4 on the UK’s largest privately-owned data centre network, allowing them to build resilience into their IT estate in a cost-effective manner, without needing to rely on multiple suppliers.
