Hubert Da Costa, VP EMEA at Cradlepoint, explains how leading industrial services provider Bilfinger uses 4G WAN technology to bring short-term sites online quickly and reliably:
In my last article, I discussed why construction businesses are increasingly turning to 4G Wide Area Network (WAN) solutions to achieve ‘always on’ network connectivity for temporary project sites. In this article, we will look at a practical application of this, examining how industrial service provider Bilfinger uses 4G WAN solutions to bring its short-term maintenance projects online quickly and without the need for expensive cable installation.
Fast, reliable internet connectivity is an essential part of any business environment today, regardless of whether it’s a modern office or temporary command centre at a remote site. As a leading global provider of maintenance, modifications and operations for customers in the industrial sector, Bilfinger regularly has to deal with both such environments. Project teams working on-site must be able to liaise closely with co-workers back at head office and vice versa, often needing to share large data files between locations quickly to get the job done.
