Vorboss fibres up 22 Bishopsgate 

Vorboss is now providing 22 Bishopsgate in Central London with 100Gbps connectivity, underpinning smart building projects and a 'connected community' over its 1.275m square feet. 

The fibre service helped 22 Bishopsgate become a WiredScore Platinum building, said to be the industry’s highest certification for infrastructure, wireless coverage, connectivity and power. 

AXA IM - Real Assets, the developers behind 22 Bishopsgate, commissioned Vorboss to install a high-bandwidth 100Gbps service with dual resilience throughout the 62-storey tower. 

“22 Bishopsgate is setting new standards for workspaces in London and reliable Internet connectivity is essential to not only its tenants, but its core operations,” said Timothy Creswick (pictured), Vorboss CEO. 

“When AXA IM - Real Assets explained its requirements for a smart building, we immediately understood how critical our service would be and knew we could help fulfil their vision, delivering the most bandwidth to a single customer location.”
End-to-end Vorboss fibre is providing ‘plug-and-play’ functionality to every tenant and powering Microsoft’s Azure Digital Twins IoT platform, which embeds machine learning insights into the core building management system. 

The 100Gbps service will also support technology amenities like facial recognition, environmental sensors, and advanced energy usage analytics.  

Harry Badham, AXA IM - Real Assets Head of UK Development, added: “We built 22 Bishopsgate with people at the heart of our plans. Our partnership with Vorboss gives us the confidence that our residents will get the reliable connectivity they need and that we have the technology foundation required to support our residents, now and in the future.” 

Creswick added: “This is essential infrastructure and waiting weeks for installation is no longer acceptable. Our service allows tenants to move in and get connected within a matter of days."
