Our partner in Scotland, DunedIn IT, provided a custom-made solution for the Scottish Wildlife Trust. The location meant that cabled technology would never be able to deliver the speeds and stability required, so they looked to mobile connectivity. By combining the Poynting XPOL-2 antennas with a Peplink Balance 20 and Robustel R1520-4L unit the multiple 4G connections from different networks, along with a single DSL, smoothed out any bumps. Bandwidth is closely monitored and managed to send different traffic down the appropriate connection for its needs. In addition, they provided Wi-Fi coverage across all the visitor areas of the site.
With this solution Jamie Clague (IT Director) and the team at Dunedin IT were able to provide fast and reliable internet for all staff as well as visitors and they are also now able to stream live footage of their famous pair of Ospreys in their nest to nature lovers everywhere.

“Life is much smoother now in terms of operations because we don’t have internet that drops out. We wouldn’t be able to operate if we didn’t have good internet.” Emma Castle-Smith – Visitor Centre Assistant Manager – Scottish Wildlife Trust
