Astro Communications – solving business challenges since 1984

Astro Communications are experts in solving business challenges through the design, deployment and management of end-to-end communications and networking solutions. We have been successful for over 30 years in delivering solutions that are innovative, high quality and that represent genuine value for money. We are trusted and highly regarded by our customers and are more often seen as part of their team rather than simply a supplier.

Who are Astro Communications?

What do Astro do?

As the market has driven consolidation in the voice and data networking space and IT arena, so our expertise and capability has grown. Astro now provide solutions that span the entire spectrum of the communications stack from ‘Cabling to Cloud’. With demonstrable success in designing and building Telecommunications Rooms and Data Centres, through to providing Cloud based applications such as telephony and video conferencing, Astro can service your business requirements from end-to-end. At the same time, our holistic approach ensures the access technologies such as LANs, WANs, wireless, and security support the needs of your business in the short term and into the future.

Cloud and hybrid Cloud options for your specific business needs

Unified Communications – improve your business efficiency and productivity

Our business values stand us out from our competition along with our willingness to depart from the 'norm’. Aspects that have made our industry what it is today. Where customers have challenging environments or complex requirements we come into our own, which is why we have delivered some of the most interesting solutions in the Market from wireless networks on ships, to satellite overlay networks across holiday parks.

What makes us different?

What are our business values?

Honesty, transparency, 'genuine' technical competency, professional integrity and unwavering customer focus are core to our business. These are not a mission statement as such, as that would imply intent over reality. These values are just part of the fabric of the culture of our business.

We like to engage with our customers at a technical and operational level, really understand the needs of the business and its desired outcomes, and then suggest a design or recommend a solution that is fit for purpose. Some times this can be very simple and our knowledgeable and experienced team can provide something very quickly, and other times this can require a greater level of consideration and thought before coming up with a suggestion. What we never do is try to ‘tyre lever’ a product or vendor to fit a customer issue if the solution is not right. We aim for long term relationships and ongoing managed services rather than quick injections of revenue. This ensures we make sound recommendations, deliver them on time and within budget, and then provide a close level of engagement and support on completion.

What is our approach?

Our customer relationships

Astro are proud to have established and maintained a large and varied customer base of businesses of all sizes and structures over the years. Working with organisations such as the Royal Institute of British Architects, Hiscox Insurance, Wightlink Ferries, Bourne Leisure, Impellam PLC and TGI Friday’s, we have delivered some very high profile solutions and managed many business critical services. Some of these relationships span more than two decades and have included almost every available technology along the way. Astro's strategic goal is to continue to develop our customer relationships and to acquire new customers through our reputation for technical excellence, focus on customer care and service management.
