Woking, Surrey; 30th September 03 - UK businesses can now benefit from broadband features commonplace in Europe but not widely available here, thanks to BinTec, a leading European router manufacturer now pushing strongly into the UK with VAD (value added distributor) Wick Hill. The two main features, in significant demand here, are secure, high-availability for Internet access; and the ability to upload as fast as you download.

BinTec X Series routers provide automatic failover to an ISDN line for broadband users, which means companies can retain an Internet connection, linking to head office databases, sending email and so on, even if their ISP connection fails. This feature is increasingly in demand as UK companies become more reliant on broadband for their business communications.

Although broadband in the UK allows for fast downloading of material from the web, it doesn't automatically provide for fast uploading (sending information from your system). Again, as we become increasingly reliant on broadband, speed and performance become more critical. The BinTec router provides the facility for fast uploading as well as downloading, so you can get the most out of your broadband connection.

Other important features of BinTec X Series routers include easy integration and flexibility, built-in security features and IPSec VPN capability. BinTec X Series routers are ideal for small to medium-sized companies (up to 250 users), particularly those with branch offices, which need to connect to a head office.

Price and availability

The X Series range is very competitively priced starting from GBP 350 SRP (suppliers recommended price). BinTec routers are available now from Wick Hill
