CSP provide High Speed Fibre Links for 2012 Olympic CCTV Network.

CSP were awarded the contract to provide the new CCTV camera system for the London Borough of Newham Council at West Ham Underground/DLR station. We provided a high bandwidth fibre optic connection to the client’s CCTV control room to facilitate monitoring of pedestrian traffic levels, primarily during the Olympic and Paralympics Games in July/August 2012.

Our aim was to deploy infrastructure for our client which would provide an on-going legacy due to its ability to accommodate high data volumes, which will provide opportunities for other services to utilise the fibre as and when, and to further extend the current network.

In view of the timescales associated with the Olympic Games, CSP commenced works on the links on 16th January 2012 as it was essential that the MAN connection to the CCTV system at West Ham station was operational by 31st March 2012, to facilitate testing/commissioning of the camera system in April. CSP achieved its timeframe challenges with time to spare.
