ACT Logsys has won a government contract worth UKP1m to manage the implementation of an Ethernet local area network and associated network management system; the network is to be installed at the Government Training Agency’s Sheffield offices by Logsys’ sister company, ACT Computer Support; the ISO-OSI compliant Ethernet will run through two separate buildings, and with over 14 miles of coaxial cable plus 1,780 data outlets, it is said to be one of the largest local area networks in the UK; the network management system will monitor and control the cabling hardware and automatically report failures and malfunctions; if a fault does occur in the cabling, each room has in-built network resilience to ensure continuity of service; the management service will also monitors traffic on the network to produce management information reports.
