Case Studies

Colchester Council

Colchester Council first approached APC Solutions in June 2013. The council required a link between Colchester Borough Council’s Town Hall and the Colchester Borough Council Crematorium. The link would be utilised by the crematorium staff for all their data needs including email, Internet and file transfers.

The challenge        

The installation of the solution would prove challenging due to sensitivity at both locations. The Crematorium manager could not allow disruption at specific times during the working day. This meant the engineering team had to adopt a flexible approach and stop work when necessary. The Town Hall location also had very definite parameters, which had to be met with regards to planning restrictions within the clock tower. This was due to the tower being Grade II listed and under a Conservation Order.

Our solution

APC Solutions installed a Cambium 58500 Super Lite Point to Point solution for Colchester Borough Council in collaboration with Capita Secure Services whom APC Solutions has a longstanding business partnership with. The Point-to-Point link provides last mile connectivity between the Town Hall and the Crematorium. The link provides a secure Ethernet Bridge between the two sites and is encrypted with an AES 256-bit key. This highly secure solution enabled the Council to meet the specific security requirements stipulated by their internal security standards.

The result

The solution was delivered on time and to budget and met all of the client’s specific
