New River WiFi for Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour


We are delighted to announce that Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour have chosen Grapevine to provide their new WiFi facility.  The guest WiFi network will cover the marina, river and fuel pontoons.  In addition, the harbour patrol boats will have access to mobile marine connectivity thanks to the provision of two Grapevine Connect Cloudcases.

Set on the Beaulieu River, Buckler’s Hard comprises a 110 berth marina and over 300 river moorings.  Credited with being one of the most picturesque rivers along the South Coast, it is located centrally on the Solent, within easy sailing of Southampton, Cowes and Lymington.

The new WiFi installation will be operational for the 2017 season.

Grapevine achieves 3CX and Peplink Gold partner status

We’re chuffed to announce that Grapevine is a Gold Partner for 3CX and Peplink.  This is in recognition of our advanced certified engineering team on both products.

Martin Cox, Director, stated ‘Grapevine have always been early adopters of new technology.  The backbone to a good communication platform is to have competent products, and we have invested in getting the right combination of solutions. Peplink and 3CX products work fantastically well together and Grapevine is one of the few UK companies to have engineers fully accredited on both product ranges.’

Introducing Grapevine Connect

Grapevine have been deploying the Peplink Balance product range to deliver reliable connectivity for voice over IP communications for some time now.  We have been really impressed with the functionality and stability of the product. So when faced with the challenge of delivering connectivity quickly, we needed a product that could be packaged up, despatched to site and turned on to provide internet access.

After testing the Peplink Max routers in house and carrying out some proof-of-concept testing with key customers, we decided to add these to our portfolio. (more…)
