Ask for an explanation of what "(1/4 CIR)" means ?

Best regards, Eric.

Dear Salah,

1/4 CIR means that you get 1/4 of all the bandwidth as a dedicated CIR. (CIR = Committed Information Rate, dedicated bandwidth.) For example, if you buy a 1024 kbps link with 1/4 CIR then you get 1024 divide by 4 = 256 kbps of dedicated CIR bandwidth with it. This is definitely not a 100% dedicated service like SCPC if you mean that. If you are talking about our iDirect Broadband services that typically feature 1/4 CIR and 1/10 CIR levels then this service is never advertised as dedicated. It's a shared bandwidth service, however it can be upgraded to a 100% CIR DVB-S2/SCPC service at any time if you wish so. 

A 4096 x 512 kbps service with 1/4 CIR may be fine for basic Wi-Fi network. That would depend on how many subscribers will be online at the same time. If this is a residential network with about 30% of people online at the same time at maximum then this may work well. I would also look at 1/10 CIR services, something like 8 x 1 Mbps, perhaps? The good thing is we don't have force long term contracts on our iDirect Broadband services so you can start and see how it works for you without committing to a long contract.

Hope this helps.

Salah,

Kindly share with me your current offer of 3Mbps 1:1 at 4200$.  I am also looking for similar services for my VoIP and my clients on WiFi

Dear Salah and Malachy,

Please contact me by e-mail (maxim.usatov at bcsatellite dot net) and I will advise what's the best we can offer. We have a VSAT solution available that would suit a 150 users WiFi network  better than a simple 3 Mbps dedicated circuit at that cost.
