Fortnum & Mason improves store flexibility with new Lan

Luxury London store Fortnum and Mason has gone to Alfred McAlpine IT Services to deploy a fixed and wireless network as part of a £24m store refurbishment.

The network will allow the store to easily move cash desks and displays for different seasons and during sale times.

The upgrade and three year maintenance contract will support and unite all Fortnum and Mason's existing systems, including EPOS, offering wireless capabilities and support for new technologies.

The project will move Fortnum and Mason's existing systems onto one secure, resilient network capable of supporting technologies such as IP telephony in the future.

The new structured cabling infrastructure for the front of house and back office will support a more modern, up-to-date store with wireless access points and a secure network for critical information to reside.

Mahshid Rafizadeh, interim head of IT at Fortnum and Mason, said, "Alfred McAlpine - IT Services has designed a future proof local area network with structured cabling that will benefit our business, staff and customers alike."

The Cisco-based network uses the Brand-Rex Cat6Plus Structured Cabling System.
