South West Communications Group has installed a wireless data link between Exeter Chiefs’ temporary summer training camp and Sandy Park Stadium.

With a multi-million pound redevelopment programme taking place at the Chiefs’ home ground this summer, the squad and coaching team has been re-located to the University of Exeter.

The club’s main sponsor South West Communications Group has eased this process by installing a point to point wireless link between the two sites to enable the coaching team to access their files and applications held on servers at Sandy Park.

South West Communications Group’s engineering director Brian Lodge said: “The temporary site did not have any underground or overhead cabling in place suitable for the coaching team’s needs and although it is is two kilometres away from Sandy Park, we were able to install a point to point link between the two sites to enable the coaching staff to seamlessly gain access to their files.”

Point to point links are a cost-effective means of linking sites as they negate the need to dig up roads and land to lay cables and can be therefore deployed within days rather than months.

South West Communications Group supplies and installs a range of point to point networks that can reliably deliver connectivity speeds of more than 1Gb at distances of up to 10km to support voice, data and video.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
