Vitacress – IT infrastructure installation
Vitacress is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of fresh produce, specialising in watercress, salad and fresh herb supply to major retail organisations. To increase efficiency Vitacress are continually developing their automation processes and the IT infrastructure that supports these complex systems. 2Teck’s Communication division have recently been chosen by Vitacress to install the IT infrastructure that the new wireless equipment in the massive greenhouses will rely on.
2Teck have supplied and installed the entire solution including over 350 metres of cable tray to support and protect the network cabling. Due to the naturally hot and humid environment within the greenhouses we have provided IP56 rated network cabinets with integrated fan units to keep everything ventilated. From these cabinets, new multimode fibre optic network links have been installed to connect to the existing Vitacress IT network and multiple Cat6 network outlets in waterproof enclosures have been deployed according to the wireless network survey. In addition, 2Teck have also supplied the new HP network switches and SFP fibre modules that will connect all of the newly installed cabling. All this completed and fully tested within 5 days !
