In each school, Able Data installed 2,000 RJ45 outlets in class rooms, staff rooms and other locations. These outlets were run back to a number of local patch cabinets, which were in turn connected back to the main computer room via OM3 fibre. The TV distribution system includes 300 class room TV outlets per school. Within each school, these are fed from a single central head end, which is in turn fed from a single set of TV and radio aerials. The head end equipment includes a high quality Fracarro K-series processing system, which as well as providing high quality TV terrestrial analogue and digital channels, presents FM and DAB radio to all outlets. The school can also broadcast channels from their own video sources, such as DVD players, tapes or cameras.Picture Oriel School Able Data Installations Plc Tel: 01442 219580

Able Data – Reference SitesFidelity Oakhill Data CentreSummary New Data Centre at the Fidelity HQContact John Brogan, Project Manager Fidelity International Oakhill House, 130 Tonbridge Rd Hildenborough, Kent, TN11 9DZ Tel: 01732 361 144Location Tonbridge, KentContract £2.5MSystems Systimax Cat 6, LazrSPEED 300 OM3, iPatch, CPI Patch FramesInstalled Jul – Oct 2009Project Fidelity International is a world-wide leading investment provider. AsDescription part of their UK data centre consolidation strategy, Fidelity required a new Data Centre facility at its HQ facility at Tonbridge. Spread over two underground data halls and two office floors, the project required the installation of 30,000 Cat6 copper links and 11,000 OM3 duplex fibre links to 300 Rittal cabinets and used more than 700km of cable. All links connect to a patch field of 80 x CPI patch frames, each monitored with the iPatch Intelligent patch system. The Data Centre was cabled overhead on three levels of CPI ladder racking. One of the biggest challenges faced by Able Data was to deliver the required high quality of cabling. To work out the optimum cable routing schemes, Able Data built an offsite mock up of a row of patch frames and the associated cables. To speed up installation whilst minimising unsightly cable slack, Able Data single end pre-terminated all copper and fibre links. The entire installation was completed over a 14 week period. As well as building and configuring a 40,000 port iPatch system to manage patching and monitor network devices, Able Data implemented additional bespoke functionality tailored to Fidelity’s requirements, including auto server provisioning.Pictures Able Data Installations Plc Tel: 01442 219580

In eachDescription they install a structured cabling system to serve the shop floor tills and pay points as well as the general offices. It is Debenhams policy to use SYSTIMAX PowerSUM cabling throughout. By the nature of shop premises, most of the cabling work is in the ceiling void, requiring the extensive use of platforms. Each store floor will normally have its own cabling cabinet. These cabinets are joined to the master cabinet via either fibre or copper interlinks, depending on the distances involved. Part of this project involved the fast track conversion of three Alders stores to Debenhams in March 2005. This involved the use of three separate cabling teams working on the different sites.Pictures Able Data Installations Plc Tel: 01442 219580

  12. 12. Able Data – Reference SitesAshmolean MuseumSummary Cabling of Major New Building ExtensionContact Dr Jonathan Moffett Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont Street, Oxford OX1 2PHContract £200KSystems Molex Cat6Installed Dec 2008 - Oct 2009Builder BAMProject The Ashmolean Museum, dating from the 17th century, is the oldest public museum in the UK. Award-winning architect Rick Mather created a new building that has doubled the Ashmolean’s gallery space and state-of-the-art facilities. In November 2009, the £61M redevelopment opened to the public. Able Data installed a structured cabling system, consisting of nearly a thousand outlets, spread over 6 floors of the new building extension. Each of the 13 remote patch cabinet locations had a fibre & copper backbone linking to the Basement computer room. As well as the provision of the computer cabinets at each location Able Data supplied & installed an APC UPS & 3Comm Switch. The biggest challenge was the complexity and range of cable routes. Whilst some outlets are located in low floor boxes, others for high gallery points (overhead projectors etc) are at more than eight metres high. Another challenge was fitting cabling around a complex building program; many outlets could not be terminated or tested until after the exhibition cabinets had been installed.Pictures Able Data Installations Plc Tel: 01442 219580
