SHADE is a Communication system that has been designed to enable Nodes (SHADE DCN & SHADE Lite) to rapidly deploy and deliver voice and data services across a Satellite, Leased Line, GPRS or ADSL bearer to SHADE Central, a UK Hub providing connectivity to the World Wide Web, ISDN, PSTN or dedicated private networks.
The Network has undergone Governmental level Accreditation which guarantees high levels of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of services.
Located with the primary SHADE Central is the Network Operations Centre (NOC) which is manned 24/7 to ensure the Quality of Service (QoS) levels are maintained. The staff at the NOC are able to remote into all equipment at the deployed locations to provide configuration changes and fault finding.
To ensure 100% redundancy of the network, SHADE Central is duplicated at a geographically separated location and services can be patched across within minutes in the event of a loss of services. The deployed Nodes benefit from all key system components being provided with 100% pre-configured on site spares.
SHADE is provided as a fully managed service (including airtime, manpower and equipment) and is completely scalable and flexible to meet your specific requirements. All equipment is packaged in ruggedised, portable and air-checkable containers.
