Having assessed an existing LAN cabling infrastructure that was not fit for use we stripped out all redundant cabling and old PVC line boxes. Working with Costain’s IT mobilisation teams we designed and installed a new Cat5e network consisting of circa 250 networks sockets all terminated back to 42U comms racks in the main comm room.
The remote buildings were connected via copper ethernet or 160M and 135M multi-mode external fibre links and 12U satellite cabinets were provided for termination panel.
Cat5e LAN cables within the remote buildings were installed to ensure a single LAN was achieved throughout the site.
Meeting Room facilities were supported using existing 55’’ and 65’’ screens and a Projector recovered from a previous project and installed with new Barco Clickshare units for wireless presentation from mobile devices such as Laptop and Tablet.
Brightsign digital signage solutions were installed to support screens in communal areas such as Reception for looping relevant project data, news channels or used as welcome signage to arriving guests.
Using the Gamma Horizon hosted telephony solution we provided Polycom IP phones with DDI numbers and registered these as part of the same network.
User licenses are charged monthly on a rolling 30 day agreement and calls up to 2000 minutes per month per user to UK 01, 02, 03 and 07 numbers are included within the monthly charge.
It was important this was a flexible agreement for these temporary site offices. Calls are delivered via the LAN and the existing data connection.
Finally we installed an Cell-Fi GO system with external donor antenna on the side of the building and routed RF cables within the office and mounted internal antennas to deliver an enhanced signal strength within the offices from a local Cellular mast for Vodaphone and EE signalling.
