Spark Digital speeds up delivery by developing "WAN in a Week"
Posted on 3-Nov-2015 11:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



Spark Digital is launching WAN in a Week, a faster alternative to fibre installation for business customers. Designed as a temporary mobile solution running over 3G, it can be used to quickly connect business locations around the country in less than a week, rather than waiting for third party fibre installations. Once the fixed service is installed WAN in a Week can be turned off, or easily converted into a Wireless Backup, providing important continuity of service.

As a business customer it can be frustrating waiting for provisioning, consents and lengthy installations to get a new office or location up and running with data connectivity. WAN in a Week resolves these issues and has already been successfully piloted and tested with several Spark Digital customers around the country.

Michael Morgan, Network Systems Manager for Fulton Hogan says WAN in a Week is the ideal solution for their business. “When we mobilise teams around the country, we need to ensure they have connectivity and access to the latest project information. Spark Digital’s WAN in a Week is a speedy and cost-effective solution which eliminates installation delays. We now have this deployed in a number of locations, with positive feedback from the project teams.”

A WAN is a Wide Area Network used to connect network sites over a wide geographical area.

Spark Digital Head of Networks and Security Greg Bickerton says the company is working on a number of innovations to speed up customer connections.

“Our customers have told us that faster access to our reliable network connectivity is essential to keep their business running, so this product was borne out of our willingness to find a solution that meets their needs.

“WAN in a week isn’t intended to replace a permanent fixed service, but it was obvious that we could leverage our mobile capability to deliver a faster implementation for clients wanting to connect immediately, and removing our reliance on third party installation time frames.”

WAN in a Week requires a main network site, good mobile coverage and is very simply self-installed. Once the new router is received at the site, Spark Digital’s team will download configuration on the router and it's ready to go.

WAN in a week over 4G is also being piloted and will be available within the next month.
