Silvalea Ltd.

Inter-Office Wi-Fi Project

Silvalea had two office buildings on the same campus that they wanted to connect together without external cabling.


Silvalea Ltd is an established leader in the UK and Europe in the development of manual handling products for the care industry. Silvalea's core business is the manufacture of replacement slings which are used during the transfer of clients using hoists.

Silvalea has two units on an industrial estate that are approximately 60 metres apart. The business wanted to connect the computer networks in each building together without the need for expensive external cabling. Following advice from Nexus engineers, a wireless link was determined to be the best method to connect the buildings. Nexus carried out the project using the following equipment:

  • Cisco Aironet wireless access points
  • Cisco Aironet directional antenna
  • Cisco Aironet lightning arrestors
  • The Cisco Aironet wireless devices for external wireless networks have proven to be a cost-effective and reliable solution that achieves speeds of 200Mbps.
