In addition to the widely documented catastrophic failure of the cross sea fibre cable that was estimated to have brought down more than 50% of Irish Internet Service Providers in 2014, which highlighted the importance of data and voice communications to public and private sector organisations of all sizes and types, Eircom failures in Dublin have demonstrated the infallibility of traditional network operators.
Whilst wireless networks are not inherently reliable, Airfibre´s understanding of radio network design, combined with its spectrum management expertise, goes a long way to ensuring that its services are dependable. To ensure that the Company delivers against its industry leading 99.95% Service Level Agreement, Airfibre applies enormous focus and resource into monitoring and managing its network infrastructure: working behind the scenes to ensure that service availability and performance exceeds standards associated with traditional legacy network operators.
Base station sites are physically secure, equipped with power management facilities and full battery backup systems to ensure uninterrupted power supply, and protection against power surges.
Airfibre´s wireless Internet Leased Line circuits are more reliable than private circuits delivered across multiple legacy networks, using hardware from multiple vendors, and which in turn is dependent upon a telecoms infrastructure that is decades old.
