UKSPA members – Bridge Fibre – have been working closely with Culham Science
Centre to provide a high speed broadband connection to all of the Park’s clients. Bridge Fibre have 30 Science Park clients across the UK and are ideally placed to offer a range of connectivity solutions to meet the individual needs of the Park’s tennants.
While a significant portion of the site has been converted to commercial occupancy, plans exist for further renovation conversion and new build works, which brought new opportunities to improve the broadband connectivity. Digital partners – Jisc – were able to work alongside the UKAEA and Bridge Fibres to implement the new solution and transform service provision to the site.
As said by Dr. Caroline Livingstone. Head of Property UKAEA, “The Culham Science Centre is home to the UKAEA which is the UK centre for research into Fusion Energy. The UKAEA has therefore enjoyed high capacity connections to JANET for many years. However, the broadband available to commercial tenants at Culham has historically been limited by either the low capacity of the available BT infrastructure or by the high cost of fibre installation. Tenants who were frustrated with the Broadband situation have been delighted at the new range of services that they can now access and this enables us to market the site more effectively to potential new tenants. Broadband has gone from being a limitation to one of our major assets”
