Voipfone Case Study
Voipfone calls The Bunker for ultra resilient service
Founded in 2004, Voipfone provides innovative Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) cloud based telephony services to small and medium sized businesses. Headquartered in London, the 34 strong team support 25,000 active customers globally using its modern, maintenance free, hosted VoIP PBX telephone network. In 2013, Voipfone was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the highest business accolade in the UK, for sustained innovation.
Voipfone was operating its own telephone network from data centres located in London’s Docklands, but with business rapidly increasing and to support the promise of 99.9% uptime to its customers, there was a pressing need to ensure the company could remain up and running in the event of an emergency. Voipfone needed an additional site to host a replica of its entire platform.
Our Ultra Secure solution
After evaluating many data centre suppliers, Voipfone selected The Bunker to host its replicated network. The Bunker provides Colocation services from within its Ash data centre, where Voipfone contracts multiple racks benefitting from dual fed UPS backed power. The Bunker also provides Voipfone with Layer 2 connectivity to its points of presence at its Docklands data centres.

“We were looking for an Ultra Secure site outside of London, but with easy access from the capital. We know that only authorised staff can access our platform, but if we need fast access ourselves, we can achieve it without any fuss. The Bunker is also the only data centre provider who could offer the highest level of resilience and security, as well as the fastest connectivity to our London data centres, to guarantee the Voipfone service will remain up and running in the event of an emergency. Both us and our customers are assured that we run a totally reliable network.”
