MOD Abbey Wood is the Ministry of Defence purpose-built site which houses the Defence Equipment and Support procurement organisation which employs circa 13,000 military and civilian staff.

 

Challenges

To meet the UK Defence Procurement requirements there was an urgent need to install an operational secure wireless network.

CEO DE&S set Fujitsu and Wifinity the challenge to provide a WiFi network service to 3 key floor plates in Birch and Maple Neighborhoods Abbey Wood in early December 2016.

 

Benefits

Only 3 weeks later (before the Christmas 2016 holiday) Wifinity successfully provided a fully operational WiFi service to over 250 desks, complete with user helpdesk to support the DE&S transformation activities to mobile device working and hot-desking.

Full confidence in this professional and rapid delivery led to the immediate order of WiFi to all 5 Neighbourhoods, and by the end of March 2017, full coverage and support were delivered to over 10,000 users.

Overall Wifinity installed 3 separate fibre optic circuits to serve the site and provided over 300 wireless access points and over 80 data switches.
