Retail Services

4G Services

Connectivity for M2M, business continuity and portable internet access

Our 4G Services have a range of uses for retail. Our 4G fixed IP SIMs are ideal for M2M requirements such as EPoS, vending machines and digital signage. In addition, a 4G pre-ethernet solution can provide internet connectivity whilst you wait for fixed line installation at a new location, and 4G failover ensures business continuity so should your fixed line connection fail transactions can continue without disruption.  For pop-up shops, a portable 4G router and SIM solution can provide portable internet access.

Bonded Internet

Improved internet performance to support seasonal demand and larger pop-up shops

A bonded internet solution combines multiple connections to provide a single connection with improved performance. Our portable Continuum solution is ideal for larger pop-up shops requiring an internet connection with improved performance and added resilience.  Continuum can also be used to support increased seasonal demand at distribution centres, or to provide connectivity at new warehouses prior to fixed line installation.
