Exa Static 3G is a new computer networking and connectivity service developed by Exa Networks. It’s a convergence of 3G mobility with access to internal IT systems (LAN/WAN), internet filtering facilities – and it also works as a “failover”.

A unique new IT networking service, Exa Static 3G, has been launched by Yorkshire-based internet service provider Exa Networks.

Exa Static 3G gives computer-users all the advantages of mobile broadband plus the opportunity to access secure home, base or local networks which may also enforce internet content filtering – it’s the first time all three facilities have been available in one product.

Exa Networks, located near Bingley, West Yorkshire, which employs 16 staff, specialises in IT connectivity, networking and specialist software for businesses and the education sector.

Mark Cowgill, Managing Director of Exa Networks, said: “Exa Static 3G is a real breakthrough that gives all the flexibility of 3G mobile broadband – anytime, anyplace, anywhere - plus access to secure and filtered networks only usually available to people logging on through a land-line with a static IP address.

“We’re very proud of Exa Static 3G. It’s a convergence of 3G, static IP and content filtering which enhances our range of services and offers great benefits to our customers.”

Exa Static 3G is aimed particularly at three markets: businesses with staff that work “on the road” but need to access their organisation’s internal IT systems, schools and colleges which want to allow mobile working but must restrict internet access and filter content – and firms in the construction and security sectors which need to set up secure IP-based CCTV systems in locations with no landlines, for example building sites.

Exa Static 3G, which uses a data SIM card in a router or dongle, also works as a cost-effective “failover” for DSL broadband – in other words, it’s an automatic back-up if the main, land-line based connection stops working.

The secret to Exa Static 3G lies in the IP address – the unique number which identifies a computer and its location. Most mobile 3G services use a different and publically inaccessible IP address with each mobile connection. This means that a computer-user, working remotely through 3G and trying to access his or her firm’s private internal network or intranet (LAN or MAN) is blocked because the IP address cannot be contacted.

But, as the name suggests, with Exa Static 3G the IP address stays the same, no matter where the user is located, so access to internal systems is allowed. When combined with Exa Networks’ SurfProtect, Exa Static 3G can also ensure that users have to work within specified content filtering levels, stopping unsuitable material being accessed on the internet, essential in educational establishments.

Exa Static 3G is available via a SIM card and costs £25 with flexible data plans from £10 a month. ENDS
