Welcome to Rapier Systems
In many environments Wireless Networks are faster, more reliable and more secure than traditional ‘fixed line’ solutions; in every environment they are significantly more cost-effective.
Rapier has unrivalled experience in the design, installation and support of Wireless (including WiFi) Networks. We support Scotland’s largest wireless network and we have achieved many ‘firsts’ in the UK, including being first to deploy a fully licensed 1Gbps wireless connection (for an NHS Trust in England). We also help our customers to innovate and were first to deploy WiFi at sea, on a buoy, for a renewable technology test centre in the north of Scotland.
We use best in class equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers to deliver the optimal solution for our customers, who operate in sectors ranging from Energy and the Public Sector to Retail, Hotels and Leisure.
From in – building and Town – wide WiFi Internet access right through to very high capacity (10Gb) point to point wireless links and Satellite Broadband for remote locations or temporary access, Rapier has it all; and on top of this we have added innovative service offerings like RapierConnect, which provides retailers and hoteliers with automatically collected demographic and buying behaviour data, publicly available from customers’ Social Media accounts, enabling customer interaction like never before.
Our latest innovation, RapierBusinessConnect, allows collaborating business to enjoy high speed Internet access at a fraction of the cost of leased lines.
What we do
What Our Customers say about us
We are delighted to be working with both Rapier Systems and Purple. We are in the process of harvesting the data that is derived from the Analytics Package and are using it to provide Businesses with a profile of the people using the Town Centre. Destination 66 the company that oversees our Social and Digital Media output also utilise the information when designing and sending out our E-shots. From a Kirkcaldy4All standpoint this partnership is not only proving to be very successful but also invaluable for the businesses that we support.
This increase in access and capacity is a major boost for the Cairngorms, both for visitors and local businesses alike. Rapier has delivered everything on time and in budget and we are delighted with the result.
The Highland Council has been impressed with the solution delivered by Rapier Systems, Ruckus and Purple and have recently agreed to the complete tender for WiFi roll out.
We have seen a 24% leap in sales and I believe this may be due in part to the excellent Wi-Fi facility. Rapier really know what they are doing when it comes to Wi-Fi. The installation was very smooth and we did not experience any interruption to our day to day operations
Like any good hotel, we want to provide our guests with an experience that will make them want to return. Our existing Wi-Fi only brought us complaints, so engaging Rapier Systems, with their guarantee of coverage and performance, meant no pain or risk for us and the right service for our guests.
Broadband is critical to the success of communities. Fast, reliable broadband helps spur new job opportunities that lie outside the reach of the local economic base and also offers the possibility to connect citizens to the town itself and enhance town services by enabling network infrastructure to do more. We are proud to partner with Rapier Systems to help push real broadband with carrier-class quality into previously overlooked areas in Scotland.
Our requirement for a Trust wide, secure Wi-Fi network that would be fit for purpose for years to come has been designed and planned across all estate buildings by Rapier. The forward thinking approach has allowed the system to be implemented and configured in the critical area’s from day one and allowing for future deployment of AP’s in the designated areas when we are ready.
Getting reliable real-time information from these devices was very important to us and our clients and the solution designed and installed by Rapier Systems allows us to get it.
Rapier delivered a reliable and very cost effective alternative to leased ﬁbre circuits. They also provide tangible value in the way they support the solution – all very necessary for our business and our customers.
An easy to use system that met the objectives set is exactly what we got. Little doubt our demands will grow, but knowing the solution provided will cope is reassuring.
