Mount Isa IT Services

As a regional Managed Service Provider, Smile IT offers a range of IT services to businesses and mining companies in Mount Isa. We’re here to help you improve your operations through the deployment of high-quality, reliable networks and the ongoing management and governance of your IT.

Let’s take a look at some of the services your business can benefit from.

Remote Networks with Rajant

Rajant uses wireless mesh technology, called Kinetic Mesh®, to build networks that are agile, scalable and extremely robust. When it comes to connecting widespread, moving operations, nobody does it better than Rajant.

The network works by deploying multiple wireless nodes across the physical terrain to be covered. These are called Breadcrumbs®, and they communicate through any wi-fi or ethernet enabled device to deliver high throughput data. Working with the Instamesh® software, they make rock solid video, voice and data communications a reality.

The nodes can be deployed in large quantities and added or removed as required. This provides a completely scalable solution thats agile, dependable and high bandwidth. It’s broadband level connectivity, anywhere in Australia.

SD-WAN Technology

This stands for ‘Software Defined Wide Area Network’. This system takes an existing internet connection and uses compression and optimisation tactics to create a high performing network. Two of the reasons we’re really fond of SD-WAN are:

  • A centralised control function is used to intelligently manage traffic. This prioritises functions in terms of importance, meaning vital business applications don’t compete with trivial processes for bandwidth.
  • An SD-WAN is designed to incorporate cloud functionality. Applications can be hosted in public or private clouds as well as on-site, allowing the incorporation of SaaS applications into business running.

Have a look at this Case Study to see how we successfully incorporated an SD-WAN network for a mid-tier mining corporation.
