NG Bailey’s IT Services division has completed a site-wide Layer 3 network and IP surveillance installation at London’s 11-acre, Grade II-listed Lincoln’s Inn, home to The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn (an active and thriving society of lawyers dating back to 1422).

Now, the network will also support future IP-based building services including access control and intercoms.

Principal among Lincoln’s Inn’s managerial objectives for this particular security project was to minimise disturbance, both to the buildings themselves and the studious environment present on site.

NG Bailey deployed two project teams working in unison: one with responsibility for installing the fibre backbone and cabling to the camera locations, the other operating at an off-site manufacturing facility to pre-stage all active equipment, including CCTV cameras, switches and recording equipment.

The installed Avigilon security system enables the site’s security managers to access real-time High Definition (HD) images from anywhere at any juncture.
