Phonelink was approached by the construction contractors WDA and Neath Port Talbot CC to install all internet, VOIP and CCTV cabling across the brand new business incubation building just outside Swansea. The Technium scheme was to be a business incubation scheme that would offer custom fitted offices to enable start-ups that would create jobs and encourage innovation in the Welsh private sector.
Through extensive planning and attention to detail, we were able to install just under 2,000 data outlets, 33 data cabinets linking back to 2 comm rooms with 3 racks of patch panels complete with our trademark cable management and high quality Krone cabling. The reasoning for this was that the businesses that would reside in the technium would be on the cutting edge of service innovation and technological development.
The primary backbone in the install was fiber because of the potential needs in the future. We talk about being future proof a lot and we really mean it. Even in this install, that will be 10 years old this year, we were looking to the future and despite the developments in technology and communication we have not been needed to install any major upgrades to the building. To see a project from start to full usage is deeply rewarding!
We have also worked on other Techniuum building being used by Swansea University. Our work with the University has been such a success that we were approached by contractors to fit the cabling on their brand new Bay Campus. It’s taking shape in the most interesting ways and the challenge of fitting cabling reliable enough to stand up to the rigors of student usage is something else!
