Ministry of Defence

The Defence Academy of the United Kingdom is responsible for both defence and security research and the education and training of members of the UK armed forces and the MOD. With requirements for a network overhaul, Redcentric worked with Serco to deliver a wireless deployment that met both tight timescales and MOD security standards.

The challenge

  • Provide a complex 640 acre, multi-building site with high-speed wireless LAN
  • Solution had to be fully certified to meet Defence Academy Network Accreditation
  • Project had to be rolled out in a live educational environment with minimum disruption

The solution

  • Secure wireless solution rolled out consisting of 500 Wireless Access Points
  • Use of 25km of optical fibre cable signed off by MOD Security Authorities

Why Redcentric

  • Worked closely with all parties to ensure minimum disruption during rollout
  • Meticulously mapped out solution to ensure maximum coverage across the site
  • Directed all project works ensuring all parties were kept updated throughout the duration
