HS2

Internet wifi solutions for trainlines

Clarus Site Solutions is delighted to be working with Balfour Beatty Vinci to deliver internet and voice connectivity to all sites within the High Speed 2 project.

Background:

Balfour Beatty Vinci is a long established joint venture between two global leaders in the delivery of critical infrastructure.

Balfour Beatty VINCI is responsible for designing and building part of the most exciting and challenging railway project in Europe: HS2.

They are building the West Midlands section of HS2’s Phase One route, spanning approximately 80km from Long Itchington in Warwickshire to the centre of Birmingham and on to Handsacre in Staffordshire.

They will be employing thousands of people in the area to design and build the civil infrastructure for HS2 through the West Midlands area.

Solution

Our dual network, load balanced 4G LTE solution is being deployed on every BBV HS2 project site. All site cabins will be fully networked with hardwired data points, Cisco Meraki equipment and WiFi connectivity.

One of the largest projects we are involved in, the site teams were initially planning to have fibre installed but have decided to utilise the Clarus Connect LTE solution instead, as it works so well and delivers high speed connectivity from the moment it is required.

Scheduled to open in phases between 2029 and 2035, HS2 will be the second major high-speed rail line in Britain
