Bridge Fibre to provide gigabit connectivity at TusPark buildings on Cambridge Science Park
Bridge Fibre has teamed up with TusPark UK to deliver gigabit connectivity to tenants of two major new buildings on Cambridge Science Park.
Unit 22, which is to be occupied by an as-yet unnamed multinational and the multiple occupancy Bio-Innovation Centre at Unit 25 will benefit from private fibre connections under the deal.
TusPark is the science park arm of Tsinghua University in Beijing, and is investing £200million into Cambridge Science Park.
Congcong Wang, head of operations for the company, said: “The two buildings will have different applications. Unit 22 has been let to a single multi-national occupier. Unit 25, the Bio-Innovation Centre, will house a variety of life science companies, giving them space and facilities to develop both their technology and their business.
“We wanted to have attractive services and have been able to agree to have fully resilient connectivity from opening day, with one line coming into each building with the two buildings connected with a private fibre cable.”
TusPark has contracted Bridge Fibre, based in Cowley Road, Cambridge, to build the internal and external networks.
Bridge Fibre has been providing fibre-based connectivity to multi-tenanted commercial properties such as science parks and innovation centres for more than a decade.
It operates services at seven sites in the Cambridge area and more than 30 across the UK.
Bob Cushing, commercial director at Bridge Fibre, said: “We view the relationships we have with landlords such as TusPark as a partnership, with the mutual goal of offering innovative and distinctive service offerings.”
TusPark says it has the largest innovation network in the world.
Cambridge Science Park is the second of its UK sites, after Newcastle. The new Bio-Innovation Centre is based on the company global incubation model.
“Basing it on Cambridge Science Park puts us at the forefront of innovation in the UK,” said Congcong.
