As dedicated specialists in the field of IT infrastructure design and installation, Optimity is perfectly positioned to deliver on every aspect of the build and to help turn this project into the success it deserves.
Optimity will design and build the backbone of the data systems required to run the facility, including high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity, IT hosted applications, cloud migration and of course, data backup integration with industry leading network security.
As part of the project, Optimity will integrate core IT systems and implement these with user triangulation through bluetooth and WiFi technologies.
All sensors and systems across the building will need to be qualified against enterprise security and network protocols to enable the proper functionality and make automation and machine learning possible.Optimity will also deploy wireless asset tracking to deliver more accurate information regarding space usage and which systems can then formulate decisions to improve overall building efficiency.
Ultimately, this will achieve high performance levels across the facility whilst ensuring that these standards can be maintained, creating a fully scalable and future-proofed system.
