Learn about the network overhaul that we carried out for Nottingham City Council, to ensure that they could connect to their CCTV cameras around Nottingham.
We were contacted by Nottingham City Council, who required a network overhaul for their headquarter facility, Loxley House. The traffic and road management facility required an IP network and IP control centre which could seamlessly connect to the councils’ 80 cameras around Nottingham. This would enable better management of the cameras for the council and make it far more affordable for them to install and connect future cameras in the city.
We held various consultations with Nottingham City Council to understand their exact specifications for the new network and other details related to the project. This included any restrictions such as budget caps and difficult to access areas within the facility. Following a series of consultations, we carried out a site survey at Loxley House to further examine any hazards and accessibility issues. After this we sent our experienced engineers to the Loxley House facility to begin installing a far reaching and cutting edge IP network. This was accompanied by a state of the art IP Control Centre which featured multiple surveillance monitors. We carried out thorough testing procedures during the installation process, to make sure everything was connected securely and reliably.
Nottingham City Council’s Loxley House is now fully integrated and connected with their fleet of cameras around Nottingham. They are now also able to easily manage these cameras from their IP Control Centre. We’ve ensured that their new IP network also enables them to connect to Nottingham Express Transit’s cameras all over Nottingham. This means they now have a more comprehensive view over Nottingham than ever before. In turn, their city wide traffic monitoring now has a far higher reach and is far more comprehensive as a result.
Furthermore, the reduced costs of future camera installations has meant that they have been able to increase their fleet of cameras by 30% during the project. We continue to work closely with Nottingham City Council in further expanding Loxley House’s IP network, so that they can increase their reach even further when it comes to their city wide traffic monitoring.
