Solutions for Libraries
OAK Telecom can cost effectively provide a reliable Wide Area Network (WAN) for library groups. Our preferred WAN version is called an Ethernet Private Network (ePN). It provides secure and reliable communication within the network, to third party providers (such as lending services) and the internet.
Public WiFi services can be part of the same network or separated into their own VLAN for better management.
Mobile libraries using 3G/4G mobile data can be incorporated into the ePN.
OAK Telecom can customise the ePN to meet your needs; speak to our team today.
Our ePNs for library groups provide many benefits, including:
- Simple for users (just like a blue cable); No complex set-up, unlike an internet VPN
- Incorporates public WiFi services
- No upload or download charges within the network
- Access to the internet centrally, either through the head office or through the ePN core
- As a Layer 2 network, it requires no complex co-ordination of IP addressing
- Low jitter and latency network (for better video conferencing, smoother file transfers and improved communication with central servers)
- Different grades of service and multiple VLANs available to meet your needs
- Can handle IP telephony across all sites
