LANspan and LANspan IP
Let’s start a conversationCall 1.844.SASKTEL
Connect your distant business operations at super fast Local Area Network (LAN) speeds. With our LANspan services, we can join your branch locations by connecting two or more LANs together within the same city or to LANs in other major Saskatchewan centres. You can reliably connect buildings hundreds of kilometres apart as easily as if they’re two floors in the same building.
Choose LANspan or LANspan IP to extend the features, capabilities, and reach of your existing LAN.
You want to seamlessly connect different buildings in the same location or a different city. No problem. We give you point-to-point or local multi-drop connectivity with our fully bridged LANspan service. The result: a unified network, with more bandwidth, scalability, and flexibility.
- Fibre optic access with speeds of 10, 100, or 1,000 Mbps
- Fibre optic access with a speed of 10 Gbps (Regina and Saskatoon only)
You can also mix and match speeds and duplexing options (full or half) within your LANspan service to best suit your business needs. Full-duplexing means information can flow in both directions like a two-lane highway. Half-duplexing means information flows in both directions, but only one direction at a time (like a walkie-talkie conversation).
Quickly share your critical data, voice, and video between buildings. With our reliable LANspan IP service, you can interconnect LANs in two or more locations with data speeds from 384 Kbps to 10 Gbps (all speeds not available in all locations).
You can access your network reports on CPU usage, traffic in/out, and device status/response time at anytime from your web portal. For even more peace of mind, we offer you 24/7 proactive monitoring. Our Network Operations Centre has IT experts to detect and fix issues before you’re even aware of them.
Concerned about always-on service and fast response? No worries. Our Service Level Agreement for LANspan IP has a stringent set of service objectives that includes strictly monitored response intervals to ensure any network troubles are resolved quickly. That means you'll get maximum uptime for your network.
LANspan IP service is available in over 250 locations across Saskatchewan. We offer flat monthly rates based on speed and location.
Wireless Backup provides continued connectivity to your LANspan IP service over the SaskTel wireless network during a service disruption, ensuring your access to mission critical applications. When your service is restored, Wireless Backup automatically moves your connection from wireless back to the primary access, seamlessly.
What our customers are saying
"Migrating to the SaskTel VPN Aggregation option over LANspan IP has saved South East Cornerstone School Division $80,000 over a four-year period through reduced hardware and licensing costs.
In addition, we can leverage VPN Aggregation as we migrate to fiber-based WAN services; we can potentially eliminate the network distribution layer and rely entirely on SaskTel routers at the school level, which could additionally save well over $250,000 every four years.
Also, using SaskTel's managed VPN service instead of having to manage our own IPsec VPN solution has saved us an estimated $80,000 - $160,000 in labour costs over the past four years."
