With a host of big screen appearances to its name, most recently appearing in the latest Indiana Jones movie, Bamburgh Castle is used to being in the spotlight.
Having recently delivered an IT and Communications solution to the estates management office for Bamburgh Castle, we were tasked with bringing the Castle itself up to date with its connectivity. With a beautiful but challenging location, Dunedin IT has been working closely with our client to deliver and support the new technologies that will be instrumental in developing their business.
In such a historic location, it can be difficult to envision the opportunities that technology can bring, but what was clear for Bamburgh Castle, was the need to improve the visitor experience, in a very competitive market. The organisation was faced with some rudimentary challenges in the shape of its IT Support and internet access, whilst the team was growing at a rapid pace.
Dealing with the impact of the pandemic brought additional issues but Bamburgh Castle was determined to build a strong proposition for the future.
We began by spending time understanding the issues that were impacting the team’s ability to deliver a first class experience for its visitors – getting the fundamentals right as a reliable and responsive IT partner. It quickly became clear that poor online access to the outside world via the internet needed urgent attention. It’s a dedicated, un-contended 100Mb ethernet circuit, distributed across the key locations on site by a new cabling infrastructure delivered by Dunedin IT as part of the overall project.
Basic broadband did not deliver the reliability or capability required and we delivered a full fibre solution through our CityFibre City Champion partnership.
Bamburgh Castle is now seeing the benefits of an integrated solution, with Dunedin IT providing a one-stop shop for IT Support, infrastructure and communications.
We developed a comparison of the different options available for meeting your internet requirements of today.
If you need high-speed, dependable internet, we recommend full-fibre ethernet. For several years, we have been delivering the Ethernet Flex product across the country as a CityFibre City Champion partner.
With a minimum capacity of 200Mbps, it truly delivers!
