How do we switch? We don't have time for down time?
We work with you through every step of the migration to your new connection.
We will setup your services in advance of the connection going live to ensure that when the switch happens your experience will be as seamless as possible. On your scheduled go-live date we will book a two hour installation slot, during which an engineer will arrive onsite to connect you. The engineer will install the equipment and run some tests to ensure the service performs as expected. They will then work with you during this slot to connect your local network and perform any additional testing to ensure the migration is successful. You may need to make some minor changes to your server settings, but otherwise the switch-over should only take a few moments.
Following the successful transition to your new connection you will then have access to our team of support engineers to solve any issues that may crop up.
Is internet speed affected when lots of people are trying to connect at the same time?
ABtec will make sure that you have the right type of connection for your needs.
If using one of our firewalls and web filtering solutions we will also prioritise essential traffic so that things like Windows Updates or Apple IOS downloads don’t affect your browsing speeds.
Do we need to be based in a specific UK region?
Some connection types may only be available in certain areas as telecommunications companies such as BT and Virgin roll-out their next generation access infrastructure across the UK. However, through working with a variety of partners and providers, ABtec are able to provision internet connectivity to anywhere in mainland UK.
Are there any particular benefits for Multi Academy Trusts?
Multi-Academy Trusts can benefit from improved connection between physical sites.
ABtec are able to plan and impliment various types of secure inter-site connectivity for multiple schools on our connectivity and industry standard IPSec secure VPNs between our connectivity customers and those using third-party ISPs.
