Finevalley Communications Ltd was formed in 1992 and is based in West London.
Our Core business is the design and installation of Voice/Data infrastructure. This includes Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6A, Cat7A structured cabling, OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 multimode fibre, OS1 and OS2 singlemode fibre, as well as wireless networks. We have a proven track record of working to the very highest standards.
Our designers and engineers are qualified to BISCI RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designers) and BICSI Technician levels. This guarantees our clients the necessary level of expertise in a rapidly changing environment.
Finevalley is an ISO9001:2008 Registered Company.
Our overall philosophy as a company is:
to take the long term view
to deliver services on time with no hassle
to be competitive and cost effective
We try that little bit harder to help our customers, and they have rewarded us with their loyalty.
Designing and installing the cabling networks is only a small part of a new-build project, but there is only one chance to get it right. Our team of specialists are involved at every stage of the project from inception to completion.
Our distribution designer (BICSI qualified RCDD) meets with the client, architect and contractors to design the cabling network within budget.
Our installation team (BICSI qualified technicians) installs the system on time and to the relevant standards.
Our client co-ordinators ensure a smooth handover to your IM&T staff.
Structured cabling forms the basis of nearly every network. Quality is everything, and we use only premium LSOH (low smoke zero halogen) cable and premium connectors. Our cabling networks come with a 20 year or 25 year warranty (depending on Manufacturer) as well as Finevalley's own "No quibble" guarantee.
Clients are presented with full documentation of each installation, including a scan of every cable and a Certificate of Conformance.
Fibre optic multimode cable makes up the backbone of large networks and is used to link buildings within a campus. Many network managers are unaware that fibre does have distance limitations which are becoming more relevant, particularly with the growth of IP Telephony. We talk to our clients about the applications they intend to use, the amount of "future proofing" they want to build into their network, and then advise them on the most suitable type and size of fibre. Installation is then carried out by Finevalley's fully trained and qualified fibre specialists.
Clients are presented with full documentation including Certifiber results and/or OTDR scans for each fibre core.
Wireless networking is complementary to hardwired cabling, and is playing a much bigger role in the NHS where it has a distinct advantage in terms of flexibility and cost. However the connectivity from a particular WAP (wireless access point) depends very much on the nature of the building. Our experience on the location of Access Points will be invaluable to you, and we can advise on alternative wired/wireless solutions. What is appropriate, for example, in a modern open-plan office may not be viable in a Victorian hospital.
Our clients need telephone systems which are reliable and offer the high QoS (quality of service) that their own customers demand. IP telephony is not yet a universal solution, and with this in mind we supply and install Panasonic and Avaya IP Office systems, both of which offer IP-PBX hybrid solutions.
If you are having problems with your network, if you don't have any network documentation, or if you are having a major system upgrade, you need to be sure that your cabling infrastructure is up to specification. We specialise in "out of hours" audits, or where that's not possible, audits during office hours with the minimum disruption to your staff's working day.
Installing a new Comms Room is generally a straight forward procedure, but over a period of time, they can slowly deteriorate into a mess of cables. When IT staff are under pressure to patch in a user, they often don't care whether the patch cord they use is 1 metre or 5 metres long. An untidy Comms room can impinge on network efficiency by making it difficult to re-patch users quickly. Finevalley engineers have the skill to install your new Comms Room or to restore your existing Comms Room to its former glory.
If you are relocating to a new floor or building, we offer a one-stop shop for your voice and data services. As well as designing and implementing the structured cabling network, we also arrange the physical relocation of the IT system (servers, PCs, printers etc) and voice system (PABX, handsets etc). We also liaise with BT, Virgin Media and other Service Providers to ensure that moving into a new building is as painless as possible.
Finevalley has a huge amount of experience in this area. We manage upgrades with the minimum disruption to the running of the surgery (working out of hours where necessary), and realising at all times that the GPs' care of patients must come first.
Even in flood-wired new buildings there are often not enough voice/data ports to cover every eventuality. Typical MACs are:
Another desk needs to be squeezed into an existing office.
WAPs (wireless access points) need to be installed for staff on the move.
Cables need re-routing during ward, consulting room and office refurbishment.
Our engineers have an enviable reputation for being able to work in busy offices in a courteous and unobtrusive manner; in other words getting the job done without upsetting people. We also make sure that your existing network documentation is updated to take account of the moves and changes that we have carried out.
In the NHS confidentiality and security are paramount. Finevalley has long experience with Hospitals, Polyclinics and GP Practices. We regularly cable Medical Wings in HM Prisons and our engineers are CRB checked.
The majority of or work comes through recommendations from NHS professionals who appreciate the service we provide.
We have the knowledge and expertise needed to work in busy and sometimes difficult environments.
Finevalley engineers have the technical and "people" skills to work discreetly around doctors, patients and administrative staff. For example, cabling an intensive care unit while occupied by patients requires skill-sets above and beyond those provided by any "normal" cabling company.
We really do understand the demands placed on staff who work in the NHS, so if you want to know more about us give us a call or send us and email.
Finevalley specialises in cabling hospitals, NHS Trust Headquarters, health centres, polyclinics and medical practices. We have installed cabling infrastructure in over 1400 GP surgeries. Below are some of our recent customers.
