The On Line Group - Point to Point Services

The On Line Group is a privately-owned group of businesses dedicated to providing Integrated Engineering Solutions throughout the Humber region and the UK.

The On Line Group has over 34 years of experience in its field and currently employs over 600 staff across the 6 organisations. It has a reputation for being the natural choice for the design and detailing of complex projects in the region.  The On Line Group have developed far beyond its initial founding goals, and now serves clients across the UK with a range of services to meet projects of any size.

In order to stay ahead of the competition, the On Line Group continue to invest in their IT infrastructure which is why they chose to work with MS3 Networks.

Previously, the On Line Group had been using a 150Mb licenced microwave radio link between their Head Office in Immingham and Hessle which had at times caused issues with stability in extreme weather conditions.  MS3 replaced this with a 1Gb fibre point to point connection providing a more resilient link whilst also ensuring users could seamlessly transfer data and access files securely between all sites.

Following the upgrade of this link, the On Line Group asked MS3 to upgrade a 100Mb Ethernet circuit between Immingham and Grimsby.  This link had not experienced any real issues but the On Line Group felt ready to increase their bandwidth to match the circuit to Hessle.  MS3 demonstrated some exceptional cost savings for the On Line Group by upgrading the circuit from 100Mb to 1Gb and the Group now benefits from having a private 1Gb network across all 3 sites.  This has enabled the Group to centralise their servers and telephony and use a number of other products including Office 365 throughout the organisation.

“I was delighted to recently award a five-year contract to MS3 to supply the On Line Group with a 1Gb Fibre Optic link between our Hessle and Immingham offices.

We are a local company, well known both North and South of the Humber for supplying specialist Engineering Design and Project Management services.

We have staff operating out of four locations, all of which are now connected by 1Gb Fibre Optic Cable.  This allows us to centralise our servers and telephony resources enabling any member of staff to work seamlessly from any office.  The backbone of any corporate organisation requires a resilient infrastructure of which MS3 have demonstrated to have.”

  •  “This is the first time that we’ve had a fibre internet solution. We no longer have to worry about how much data we’re using as we have unlimited. Plus, we have speeds much higher than 4G could provide. On top of that, we now have great technical support from a local company right on our doorstep and know the name and faces of the people we deal with.”."

  • “We took the service from MS3 mainly due to the speed of the connection which was more than adequate for our needs along with the fact that they are a local company. Since moving over to MS3’s fibre solution, we have just completed a total transfer of all our internal systems into the “cloud”. This includes Office 365, which MS3 helpfully arranged for us, alongside three other back office systems we have also moved onto hosted environments.”."

  • “Having committed to their 100Mb DIA product, we have been extremely pleased with the service, and have subsequently ceased a circuit from KC that provided 1/50th of the bandwidth for the same price. “The installation was carried out promptly, and the service has been reliable since day one. We would have no hesitation in recommending MS3 to other business users in the area.”."
