Boldyn Networks Builds New UK Full Fibre Network in Sutton

Thursday, Jul 20th, 2023 (5:27 pm) - Score 376

Digital infrastructure firm Boldyn Networks (formerly BAI Communications) has announced that they’ve rolled out a new “high capacity” fibre optic network in the South London Borough of Sutton to improve the area’s CCTV network, which is being done in partnership with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Transport for London (TfL).

The network is expected to help boost the image quality and reliability of 21 CCTV cameras across the borough, which among other things will allow the footage to be accepted as evidence in court. The cameras have been connected to extend the current CCTV network and will also link to the local police centre.

The project was funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA), through TfL, following a successful bid as part of the Government’s ‘Getting Building Fund’, and forms part of a wider scheme to improve digital connectivity across London boroughs. In other words, it will also provide the foundation for other, future, smart city applications (e.g. sensors to monitor air quality and traffic congestion).

Billy D’Arcy, CEO of UK & Ireland at Boldyn Networks, said:

“Reliable digital infrastructure is the foundation of innovation, and working with the London Borough of Sutton to boost connectivity will help to improve safety and enhance local services for residents and businesses. We look forward to working with other boroughs to drive connectivity across London to create better communities to live, work and thrive. It is vital for all London boroughs to improve their digital capabilities, and rolling out better quality CCTV is one example of the great benefits that high-speed digital infrastructure provides for Londoners.”

Boldyn Networks has used Virgin Media’s Wholesale division as a third-party Fibre supplier to connect the 21 CCTV locations. The cameras will not be used for traffic purposes, but are intended to enhance public safety through their deterrence of criminal and anti-social behaviour.
