LineBroker is the trading name of the circuits business of X.COMMunications Limited.

X.COMM is a well established systems integrator specialising in secure remote access, network boundary security and Web/Email filtering. Internet connectivity has been a growing part of the X.COMM business for many years and has now been focussed under the LineBroker brand.

When supplying remote access systems the first question X.COMM had to ask was on Internet connectivity. Was the existing circuit suitable and was there sufficient capacity to accommodate remote workers. Specifically X.COMM looked at the up-channel capacity as the bulk of the data in a remote access system is flowing out from the data centre towards the user. ADSL is the exact opposite of what is required here. It has a faster down-channel with a very modest up-channel so is hardly ever suitable for a head-end system.

Over the years X.COMM has provisioned just about all of the available technologies and now continues to do so through the LineBroker brand. All businesses need good Internet connectivity and the topic should be visited every 2-3 years as contracts run their course and newer, faster, better value technologies become available.

The management team at X.COMM/LineBroker has over 4 decades IT experience most of which has been in the data communications & data security industry. By using our services you can tap into that wealth of knowledge.
