CTIL and O2 partner up with iWireless Solutions

15 September 2020

Working in partnership with CTIL and O2, iWireless Solutions was asked to design and deliver a world leading, free outdoor Wi-Fi network within the Square Mile. The multi-million-pound project is part of one of the largest investments in wireless infrastructure ever seen in the UK, providing workers, residents and visitors with the ability to access digital rich content in a dense urban environment.

This work was inclusive of any column work, such as replacing for suitable height columns, as well as dealing with the power needed to bring the kit live. The existing Wi-Fi solution was insufficient to meet today’s data demands, which required the new system to be radically different. iWireless Solutions designed a Wi-Fi system with a dynamic, self- organising, fully resilient, gigabit capable backhaul.
