Telecommunications company AirSpeed Telecom has been awarded significant contracts to deliver high-speed uncontended internet and significant bandwidth services to fruit and vegetable wholesale companies Donnelly Fruit and Veg and Country Crest.
Until now, due to the lack of a fibre network in the area, high-capacity services were unavailable to businesses in North Co Dublin, where Donnelly Fruit and Veg and Country Crest are located.
Donnelly Fruit and Veg procures, packs and distributes fresh fruit and vegetables from Irish growers and worldwide suppliers to its retail customers. Located in St Margaret’s, the business had a need for a dedicated high-bandwidth internet connection to provide it with access to its customers and suppliers worldwide. The licensed wireless solution from AirSpeed Telecom has brought significant benefit to the reliability of communications between Donnelly Fruit and Veg and their customers and has proved invaluable for the company’s mobile staff, from PDA synchronisation to accessing their data network.
Country Crest is a family business located near Lusk, which supplies potatoes, onions and carrots to major multiples across Ireland. Country Crest needed to move to a high-performance network with a guaranteed level of service to ensure its online order system was always available and orders could be fulfilled. A new 5Mb connection from AirSpeed Telecom provides the company with guaranteed, fast, and reliable connectivity.
“We are delighted with the expansion of our network in North Co Dublin and the potential that it brings to companies in the region," said Liam O’ Kelly, managing director of AirSpeed Telecom.
"Our coverage in Dublin City and surrounding areas is now 100pc. Our licensed wireless network is flexible and cost effectively brings high-bandwidth services to businesses needing uncontended service backed up with best-in-class service level guarantees.”
AirSpeed Telecom operates a nationwide carrier-class licensed wireless network, providing telecommunications products and services to large enterprises, public sector bodies and SME customers in Ireland. AirSpeed Telecom’s technology expertise and national coverage combine to offer businesses around Ireland a compelling service for data and voice communications.
AirSpeed Telecom employs 35 people at offices in Dublin (Citywest) and Cork (CIT Campus). Clients include RTE, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Vhi Healthcare, TG4, Telegael, HEANet, Dairygold, NCSS (BreastCheck), and Vista Primary Care.
