Project: Bath City CAZ "Clean Air Zone" (NOW LIVE)
Client: BA&NES Council
Clean air zones have been introduced across England marking out the new emission standards for our cities. People can enjoy healthier, cleaner air. Visitors may have to pay a daily £9 charge to drive in the zone if the vehicle doesn't meet the emissions standards.
Installation of Fibre, Communications and Power
150+ Cameras Installed
75+ ANPR Overview Cameras installed
Fibre Connections to local authority buildings
Select has successfully delivered all parts of the project on time and budget. Non-compliant vans, taxis and minibuses will be charged £9, while non-compliant trucks and lorries, and coaches and buses face a daily charge of £100. Private cars and motorbikes will not be charged.
Project: Installation & Maintenance of Electric Vehicle Charger Points
Client: Siemens Traffic
Source West, which is funded by Bristol City Council through the UK’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund, promotes the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) into the South West including Bristol City, Bath and North East Somerset, and the Counties of South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Gloucestershire. The first phase of the project was to deploy 6 charger units around Bristol.
. Project Management
. Survey of all sites
. Excavation for charger base and electrical connection
. Electrical connection
. Deployment of units – 500kg required lifting into place.
. Installation of charger units
Project: Fibre Access - Bath
Bath and North East Somerset Council required a solution to upgrade their connectivity to their traffic controllers and CCTV cameras, around the city of Bath. The network needed to provide diversity for these circuits and have the capacity for future expansion.
Three 144 optical fibre rings would be created to cover the city, cabled out from a central hub. Communications cabinets were sited at locations around the ring, in positions close to CCTV and traffic controllers. 144 fibre cable is made up of 12 tubes of 12 fibres. In each communication cabinets, one tube from each direction would be presented for patching to distribution cables. The rest of the fibres are spliced through to the next cabinet. The ring allows diverse routing for all circuits route to any cabinet. Local distribution cables would then connect the communications cabinets to CCTV cameras and traffic controller cabinets. The use of communication cabinets provided ease of access and in the event of a fibre fault, the circuit can simply be moved to its diverse path by moving a patch cord in the communication cabinet and the central hub.
Project: Installation & Maintenance of Wide Area Network
Client: University of Bristol
The project involves the design supply and installation of a structured cabling system to interconnect the SDN network components. The SDN Cabling System comprises; Horizontal and Backbone Cable, Cable Termination Panels, Connectors and Patch Cords and ICT Equipment Cabinets. It also includes associated power supplies, containment, additional cooling and builders work in connection.
The scope of the project includes the following:
• New blown fibre multiduct
• Blown fibre cores to existing micro duct routes
• Traditional fibre cabling
• New cabinets to specified locations
• Traditional fibre optic cables on backbone cable routes where specified
• Category 5e copper cabling to RJ45 outlet locations
• Traditional fibre optic cables to fibre optic outlet locations
• Primary and tertiary containment to final outlet positions as required
• Copper and fibre optic patch cords for SDN network devices
Testing of installed cabling
• Cooling to Computer Room S103A
• Power supplies to SDN equipment (i.e. ICT cabinets, Edge Switches, Media Converters) and to a single DX unit
• Replacement of an existing distribution board
• Operation and Maintenance (O&M) documentation for installed systems;
• Electronic records
• Associated builders work in connection
Select was instrumental in introducing the University to Bristol City Council and today they have a duct
sharing agreement in place providing them with extended reach throughout the city
Select’s Role in the Project:
Optical Fibre Installation
Select are the University’s approved installers of CAT6 infrastructure
and are Siemen approved.
Optical systems and Media converters installed at cabinet locations and
in the main hub to convert the fibre to CAT5.
Commissioning & Testing
As part of the handover process and to prove compliance with the specification
Optical Time-domain Reflectometer
(OTDR) traces and Insertion Loss Measurement
(ILM) readings are recorded.
These ensure that the calculated optical power budgets are met.
We continue to provide maintenance support the network for all civils and fibre requirements.
