WiFi in Wales: we have even the most remote areas covered
People expect to get WiFi coverage everywhere these days, but in the remote hills of Wales? Apparently so, as Smart has completed a WiFi deployment at a holiday park in the beautiful, but remote Welsh countryside. The work was undertaken through a partner for one of the UKs major hotspot providers. The requirement was to provide WiFi in Wales covering the site in both the fixed buildings as well as the caravans.
With many of the access points situated externally and at heights in excess of 5Mtrs, the challenges were considerable. As well as the normal data cabling work, there was also the need for Smart to undertake electrical and civil works to complete the WiFi install.
Working at height in a busy holiday camp meant the engineering team had to show a flexible approach to the installation, while adhering to the Health & Safety implications of an environment with many children and pets.
With the work fully tested and backed by a 25 year application based warranty as well as the network cabling, Smart also undertook the installation of the Cisco PoE switches and PoE injectors. The result of the new WiFi network means “campers” can now enjoy the breath-taking Welsh scenery, while remaining connected to the WiFi in Wales.
