Data Network Upgrade to a Sheffield Manufacturing Plant

We were asked to carry out a number of upgrades to the data networks across 6 sites of a major Sheffield manufacturer.  As well as the installation of data cabinets, server rack upgrades and fibre optic cables we installed multiple Cat 6 UTP and FTP connections across a number of admin offices and workshops. 

Laser links provided connectivity to remote buildings as well as underground connections for road crossings.

The installations took place in a mix of office spaces and live industrial works, at ground level and at heights which meant that our engineers had to undergo detailed site inductions and take extreme care whilst carrying out duties.  Specialist equipment was used to gain access to high areas over the works.


Installation in numbers;
- 6 sites including working steel works
- 48 data cabinets
- 85 single mode fibre optic cables
- Kilometers of 24 element, single mode fibre cable

VSAT Broadband

We were recently called to provide assistance to a private Golf Club in Lincolnshire that had been plagued by internet issues for quite some time. The Club also has a number of holiday lodges on site so a reliable internet solution was necessary for their guests and members.

New Channels were appointed to install a 50Mb Broadband via Satellite system. Upon the successful installation and testing of the system we were then asked to provide a solution to extend the Wi-Fi capability of the VSAT system to enable residents of the holiday lodges to benefit from the new internet speeds.

New Channels provided Ubiquiti Point to Point Antennas throughout the holiday lodges and installed Wi-Fi repeaters. This enabled the residents to enjoy internet download speeds of approximately 15Mb where as previously they had nothing.
