Fibre Backbone Upgrade

This was a network infrastructure comprising several buildings linked by fibre. It had evolved over a number of years, with different segments being installed by different suppliers.

We put forward a proposal based on closely matched, high quality equipment from a major networking manufacturer. The network was constructed offsite in our office allowing the upgrade to be installed within a few hours at the site. The network now has Gigabit (1000Mbit) networking over all the fibre segments and some of the copper segments. Each desktop has its own 100Mbit switched connection. The servers sit on a Gigabit network switch, giving each server its own dedicated Gigabit connection.
