July 2017 - OM4 Fibre Optic upgrade for government security system
Whitepack have just completed the installation of a new Brand Rex OM4 fibre optic network to improve a government security system that was failing due to outdated OM1 technology struggling with modern day bandwidth demand placed upon it by recent hardware upgrades. Whitepack were asked to test the existing fibre cables and provide a report and recommendation of how to solve the issues. It was discovered on the survey that the original fibre technology was OM1 therefore the recommendation to upgrade to OM4 to handle 10Gb was an easy fit. Due to the nature of the works, our SC cleared engineers worked outside normal business hours to install the cabling. The installation saw 500m of OM4 Brand Rex TB fibre installed and spliced to 128 pigtails across 6 locations.
