What do you get?

Managed Cisco Router (leased lines only)

A couple of weeks before your go live date we will ship a pre-configured Cisco router (normally a 1941) to you. This includes an ADSL WIC (ADSL Modem/Router Card) and all the cables needed to connect it to your network. This router remains the property of M247 during the length of the contract and is fully supported and managed during this period. Options to own the equipment are also available.

Site Survey

This will highlight any possible excess construction charges that may be incurred getting the fibre to your building. If you are not happy with these charges, you have the right to cancel the contract. We cover the fee that BT charges us for this, even if you choose not to go ahead.

Service Level Agreement

As you can imagine, we want to make sure we deliver you the best service that we can. If there is a fault, we offer highly competitive SLAs which are confirmed within your contract. Obviously we are reliant on BT and the other physical cable providers that we use, but we will always keep you informed of progress. We are open 24/7 so you don’t need to worry about having difficulty in getting hold of us.

PSTN Line & Broadband backup (leased lines only)

As part of our offering we provide an ADSL failover service. This is not a stand-alone broadband connection that needs to be switched over to in case of failure. It is a fully automated system. We even route all of your IPs across the connection and it works exactly like your Ethernet circuit, just a little slower, but it fills the few hour gap while we are fixing the fault.

We cover the cost of the phone line install for this service, the line rental and the broadband service, so there are no extra charges or connections to keep track of. (applies to standard installs, for more complex installs we will talk with you further regarding the options available)

IP Address Allocation

As standard we provide 8 IPs for your external network. 5 of these are usable, as we have to assign the other 3 to our network and routers. If you think you need more, that is just fine, just let us know how many and what they will be used for. We should be able to allocate up to 16 without too many problems.
