Project: Ethernet Broadband
Location: St Edwards Park, Staffordshire
Company profile and request:
Internet solutions company providing internet connectivity solutions for small businesses and large enterprises alike. Its focus is on providing an unparalleled level of support and reliability to its customers, ensuring their satisfaction and a lasting relationship for years to come.
This means that the infrastructure they use must be supported by top quality equipment. The company has recently engaged in the project whereby they installed a high speed broadband connection to a housing estate affected by a digital divide. The company used Ethernet to provide a cost-effective method combining copper and fibre networks to supply high speed broadband. Instead of travelling from the BT exchange, Superfast Broadband is sourced from fibre connection housed in a Rainford Solutions cabinet. That cuts out 1.2 miles from the journey, resulting in a much shorter local loop. As a result the estate receives superfast, ultra reliable, no-limits, 50Mb broadband to St Edwards Park.
Project goals and strategy:
The project required a cabinet suitable to house electronic equipment. After initial consultation the size of the cabinet was reduced. Equipped with thermal management and our standard anti-vandal features, the cabinet was installed at the site to host the connection. The anti-vandal features we applied to the design proved very effective when the cabinet became a target for vandals. Our standard practise of applying 3 point locking, 8mm locking bars with rollers, anti-pry protection strips, secure hinges and robust metal construction protected the product so it was barely touched despite the evidence of forceful attempts to get inside the enclosure.
