Javelin Broadband has since inception envisaged the creation, operation and supply of data networks and services to remote locations and campuses. Our network has grown rapidly and provides high speed data services to personnel and businesses on and around these campuses. We use a combination of leased lines delivered over fiber and high speed wireless links to the point where our network extends to over 1,000 km. We have 15 campuses connected together over a resilient backbone capable of delivering 100 mbps or more. In some cases this exceeds the capacity of the local exchanges by three times or more. New locations are being added with improved facilities and services.
We are working with MOD campuses, companies, local authorities and trusts to extend reach in to ‘notspots’ and digitally dispossessed areas. In some cases this might involve co-operation strategies with competing interests, but for the most part we own our network. We envisage the creation of a nationwide series of hubs and nodes delivering increasing high end data services.
In 2008 Javelin Broadband was awarded ‘Provider Aggregate’ status by RIPE, which permits us to peer with other networks and access to 5,000 Public IP addresses. We are continuously adapting to the regulatory environment involving the HSE, the MOD and others with a stream of continuous training programmes designed to comply with and in many cases exceed the required standards.
