CALGARY, AB - September 9, 2013 -- When BlackPearl Resources Inc. needed to upgrade the communications at one of its remote field locations in northern Alberta, they called upon their long-term technology partner, Glenbriar Technologies Inc., to come up with an innovative and integrated unified communications solution.
"The seamless integration of our remote Blackrod facility with our head office in Calgary has a huge positive influence on our ability to communicate both internally and externally, whether by cellphone, mobile device, land line, Internet or over the WAN," noted Chris Hogue, Vice-President of BlackPearl Resources. "Glenbriar and Rigstar have provided us with a world class platform, which is reasonably priced, solid, and works with all brands of end user devices and carriers. We look forward to expanding this solution to our other field locations in the future."
Feeding into a high speed wireless Internet connection installed and maintained by Rigstar Communications, Glenbriar configured and provided an Xirrus Wireless Array and network equipment for the onsite network deployment, provided a truly superior WiFi deployment throughout the remote site. At BlackPearl's main office, Glenbriar configured and installed a ShoreTel Mobility router, which is an innovative network appliance that extends voice and unified communications capabilities to mobile devices, while supporting all leading enterprise PBXs.
BlackPearl Resources users are now able to communicate easily and efficiently whether they are in the main office or at the remote site. Remote users can now use their cellphones to make calls over the wireless Internet network, without incurring cell time and long distance charges, even if they are beyond the range of their cellphone providers' networks. The desk phones and smartphones at the remote site are now part of the same phone system as the main office, and users seamlessly call any extension from either location with no trunk or long distance charges. All of these communications take place without any delay, jitter or digitization.
