News: Leading role for Rotherham IT company


A Rotherham company has played a crucial "behind the scenes" role in the refurbishment of a historic theatre in Derby.

Derby Theatre recently completed a five-month refurbishment programme as part of ongoing developments to re-open it as a leading arts venue, following a lengthy closure.

Based at the Vector 31 Network Centre in Wales Bar, Rotherham, Connect-IP was brought in by the University of Derby to renew the building's entire cabling infrastructure.

Connect-IP's work included the upgrade of the data network, to help improve ticket sales, helping to rewire the backstage areas of the theatre, as well as the installation of wireless access points and plasma TV points.

Scott Bradley, senior network infrastructure engineer at the University, said: "Connect-IP has become a valued partner because it provides a reliable service which is timely, documented and tested."

Bob Allen, director at Connect-IP, added: "We have worked with the University of Derby on a number of projects over the last few years. We have become a key partner on the renovation of its buildings, so we were pleased to get involved with this project.

"The Derby Theatre has been through a difficult time over recent years. But under the guidance of the University, it can now look forward to a bright and successful future. We are delighted to be part of this new era for the theatre."
