UBM is a market leading and multi award winning media business – helping clients to make connections (through events), communicate their business proposition (through a range of print and digital marketing materials) and do business effectively (using interactive communications tools).
In order to deliver effective communications systems for its clients, UBM requires a reliable, high performance network infrastructure for its own premises. So when planning its new UK Headquarters, in London, this was a key consideration. Working with consultants, PTS (Planned Telecommunications Services), UBM determined that the Datwyler cabling solution, supplied exclusively by iDaC Solutions, would best fit the exacting requirements of its business and that of its customers.
This prestigious project consisted of nearly 5000 copper network links spread over 9 floors of UBM’s new offices at 240 Blackfriars Road.
Datwyler certified installers, Excel IT, carried out the installation during the summer of 2014, but the project wasn’t all fair weather. During the installation there were unplanned challenges that required additional support from iDaC Solutions, the exclusive UK & Ireland source of Datwyler cabling solutions.
Bob Kellett, (Senior Project Manager, Excel IT) worked closely with the iDaCs team, who helped find solutions to address the potential issues on site:
“I found the iDaC Solutions’ technical support team to be very proactive on this project”
Along with on-going dialogue with Mark Green, UBM Project Manager for Excel IT, the project went ahead smoothly and 4856 warranty certified network links were commissioned.
Bob Kellett has gone on to work with Datwyler cabling systems, from iDaC Solutions, on a number of projects as he found it to be:
“an excellent, reliable product with great onsite and offsite support”
