The City of North Vancouver’s vision is to become a highly engaging community that celebrates its vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods. With this mandate, the City needed to upgrade its legacy communications infrastructure to a technology-advanced fibre-optic network with maximum bandwidth and heightened security.
In a press release issued on July 21st, the City of North Vancouver announced the deployment of fiber optic network aiming to provide better connectivity, communications and traffic control management systems. The City of North Vancouver’s first priority was to establish a network of Fiber optic connections in North Vancouver.
The City had assessed the current condition of the legacy communication systems that were in place used for the past many years. After that close examination, a proposed technology and safety upgrade was implemented to the 30 year old TCMS (Traffic Control Management Systems), and fiber optic connectivity to all Civic Buildings.Vancouver based AxisTech carried out the design deployment work. The technical team at Axistech worked in cooperation with the IT , Traffic control and operations teams to execute the first phase of the project.
The successful completion of the first phase of The City of North Vancouver’s 11 km fiber optic TCMS installation has resulted in awarding the second phase of installation also to AxisTech. Phase Two consists of fiber splicing of 3.5 km of fiber optic cables near the low level road along Esplanade from St George to Lynn Creek. Two cables of 96fibers are required to be spliced in Phase Two of the TCMS – Traffic Control Management Systems.
The City of North Vancouver, BC elected to install the Fibre-optic Network and Traffic Control Management System throughout the entire region in order to better manage connectivity, communications and the safety of traffic, people, local government and businesses.
