Abzorb has won a major contract to deliver an integrated network cabling system and IP security to a large new secondary school development in Milton Keynes.
This new campus offers 1,800 school places in the Western Expansion Area of the city.
Abzorb offers a complete building services package to contractors, removing the need to manage multiple installers.
Working with NWP, Abzorb designed a network cabling system to facilitate the school’s voice and data network, site security, building management and access control, as well as to offer a flexible environment that meets the state-of-the-art IP security needs of the school now and in the future.
The network consists of 2,212 category-6 user outlets, providing ample connectivity for each student, fed from four server rooms that are connected by fibre optic cabling and house nine cabling and equipment cabinets.
The Abzorb network also controls a 27-camera CCTV system and a secure fob-controlled building access system. Integrating the system through the network allows better visibility across the site and improved building management controls.
Kev Hall, Director at Abzorb, said: “The risk landscape is rapidly evolving in the education sector, online as well as physically on-site, and providing a safe learning and working environment is at the heart of every schools’ charter.
"Putting in place cost-effective and flexible security delivers the duty of care to staff and pupils and allows teaching staff to focus on doing their jobs.”
