TNP builds high-capacity network for Lancaster hub

Lancaster-based TNP (The Networking People) has provided the high speed and high-capacity digital network which will drive the new £1.7m Fraser House Business Hub opening in their home city.

The new hub was created with the renovation of a three-storey building at White Cross Business Park to house tech and digital businesses. All workspaces will have access to high-specification digital connectivity with full-fibre Internet connectivity of up to 10Gb/s. 

Chris Wade, TNP commercial director, said: "Secure, high quality, high capacity digital connectivity is a vital part of the infrastructure for businesses involved in this growing sector, and we are also providing a user-friendly, free to use wireless service that gives visitors easy access to the internet. Our system will provide all that along with the flexibility to easily accommodate new users as businesses move into the hub and grow.

We work with local authorities, healthcare trusts, colleges and universities across the UK, and we welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our expertise right here in a showcase building on our own doorstep.

The specification for the digital network designed, installed and commissioned by TNP includes internet connectivity up to 10Gb with fail-safe resilient connection options, high capacity inter-floor fibre connections with Wi-Fi access points on each floor, full building Wi-Fi coverage and a Cloud Connect guest wireless portal for simple registration.

TNP is also responsible for on-going monitoring, security and support of the system with a 24/7 helpdesk run by technical engineers.
