Case study – DentonWildeSapte
The Business Problem
Top UK-based law firm Denton Wilde Sapte needed a supplier to link its new Milton Keynes office to its existing London office. This new network had to be highly secure and fast with high bandwidth capacity to fulfil its growing data traffic needs.
“We needed a secure, fast and reliable network to link to our new Milton Keynes office at The Pinnacle with our Fleet Place office in London. The nature of our business means that data security is of the utmost importance to us as well as high data speeds”.
David Everitt, IT Technical Architect and Quality Manager, Denton Wilde Sapte
After thoroughly researching the market the firm found it was impossible to get the capacity they needed from a traditional leased line network. It was clear that a dedicated network was their best option – not only in terms of capacity but also financially in the long-term, especially in terms of lower cost future network upgrades.
In the end the firm chose Geo because we could provide a dedicated 1GB fibre network that would deliver the kind of high speed, reliability, security and future-proofing they needed for the long-term success and growth of their business.
Thanks to a wealth of experience gained in building and managing more than 3,000 km of network across the UK we had the expertise to design and build a fibre network that was exactly what Denton Wilde Sapte had been looking for.
We successfully connected the firm’s two offices using both our existing London fibre, which uniquely runs several metres deep through the capital’s sewer system, and our national fibre network which follows the route of the UK’s gas network.
As both networks run so much deeper underground they’re far less vulnerable to damage than most others that lie just beneath the surface of the country’s road system.
Having the most modern, dedicated fibre optic network on the market means Denton Wilde Sapte now has the highest levels of control, security and reliability. They’ll never have to share their network or shape traffic and they can easily and cost-effectively scale up their bandwidth as high as needed. Denton Wilde Sapte now has the agility to seize growth opportunities as they emerge.
And being able to take advantage of pay-as-you-grow economics means the firm only pays for what it needs, as it needs it – avoiding lump-sum expenditure.
