Stone Group - Providing digital transformation solutions to organisations across the UK.

We see working from home as a medium/long term arrangement. Home networks are built for streaming Netflix in bedrooms, not video conferencing in offices.

As well as the solutions your team require to work from home, wireless connections your users can depend on and be confident in the security of, are fundamental requirements for the medium term.

The bundles and access points below require one network connection and the rest will ‘mesh’ and operate as extenders – BUT, we can help you manage them remotely, and keep your company data secure, as it traverses potentially open wireless networks.
