Express Data makes Calrec connection
Express Data has provided a wireless network solution for Calrec Audio.Due to growth and expansion, Hebden Bridge based Calrec chose to refurbish a remote office to house additional staff, and Express Data was tasked to connect the two neighbouring sites for Calrec to provide the business with high speed link, so the company could access, transfer and share large amounts of data.
Under normal circumstances this would not have been a problem but the buildings were listed and protected from any external modifications. The two sites, although part of the same complex, are two physically separate locations with no ducts or other means of interconnecting. After much consideration and forward planning, the systems integrator provided Calrec with a point-to-point wireless solution, BridgeWave GE60 unit.
The BridgeWave GE60 unit provides wireless gigabit performance with robust wireless network security features. The system was specifically designed to be used outdoors and its compact design meant that no modifications were made to the building’s external fabric. The solution has ensured that a high speed, secure connection is available to the business and the implementation met with all the listed building regulations and standards.
