The Solution

NCS installed new fibre optic ‘backbone’ links, with Cat6 data cabling throughout the building. Four distributed communications racks were installed around the building with divergent and redundant fibre optic links between each location and the main server room for maximum resiliency. The OM4 fibre cable is 10GbE capable and fusion spliced with LC terminations.

Benefits

FM Conway’s new head office now has a solid network infrastructure that can support the demands of its 250+ employees and the technology associated with state-of-the-art buildings today, including IP telephony, CCTV and Wi-Fi. The fast, reliable, and secure structured cabling foundation ensures an ability to cope with future requirements.

“Resilient fibre links provide us with the confidence that if we ever had a cable break in a specific area, our operations would not be affected.” – Matthew Chapman, IT Engineer, FM Conway

In addition to providing the network infrastructure at FM Conway’s new head office, NCS have also carried out fibre and cabling work at their Dartford, Erith, Heathrow and Chelsfield sites.

“NCS engineers are flexible and accommodating. We had a site outage once due to an accidental cut fibre optic link and the team attended within 24 hours to repair. I fully trust the NCS engineers to complete the agreed work to a high standard, and the included warranty for cabling works completed, provide assurance we will be looked after for years to come. “
