Dorset Fire & Rescue Service

Dorset Fire & Rescue service are about making Dorset safer. They ensure that everything they do and the service they provide is effective, equitable and supports the communities they serve.

The Problem

Dorset Fire and Rescue have over thirty locations throughout Dorset and were challenged with providing wireless connectivity throughout. Key to their requirements were centralised management and ease of deployment.

The Solution

Cisco’s FlexConnect wireless network solution was a perfect fit for the problems and requirements of Dorset Fire.

Installing a wireless controller in their data centre and deploying access points at each of their locations allowed us to centralise the management and make the deployment extremely easy.

Client traffic is switched locally whilst guest traffic is securely tunnelled out to the internet.
