Every day I hear a customer or potential customer complain that they can’t get more than 6Mbit from their line, despite us offering 110Mbit/sec and beyond.
We have an answer, and it is the FireBrick!
The Firebrick is a fantastic bit of kit, which keeps on getting better thanks to Adrian Kennard of Firebrick who is busy adding new features almost daily!
His latest addition is a SIP server, which means not only is your Firebrick a fantastic router and firewall which allows multiline bonding of ADSL services, but you can also use it as a telephone system / PBX for your office / home office.
This means you can do away with the flakey home brew PBX, or that planned (but expensive) Cisco UC PBX solution, and instead plug in a Firebrick.
The cost savings are actually quite amazing! Instead of £350 for a firewall, £500 for the cheapest Cisco UC PBX, etc simply plug in a FireBrick (starting at £350) and you have a fully functional phone switch, firewall and router – and you can use it to bond multiple ADSL lines together for faster upload and download speeds by simply adding the “Fully Loaded” license for an extra £250. This includes all sorts of useful PBX facilities for the bigger office too (Busy Lamp Fields, etc).
The Firebrick is fully compatible with the Fido Talk SIP service, and of course works with our ADSL service enabling bonded upload and download speeds of up to 350Mbit/sec depending on the number of lines and the performance of each of these lines.
Worth noting too that this solution does NOT use MLPPP … and DOES support ADSL lines of differing speeds. Bond an 8Mbit and a 4Mbit line together to get 12Mbit. (MLPPP would only give you 8Mbit at best).
