Great IT forms the backbone of any public institution. Invest in a network that’s fast, secure and agile, and you’ll be better equipped to deliver a stellar service to your constituents whilst minimising delays and avoiding sky-high running and maintenance costs.

Octopus Cabling can introduce a range of networking solutions to government offices throughout the UK. We have the experience needed to handle single and multi-site departments and have a proven track record in co-ordinating and delivering network upgrade projects on time and within budget.

We carry out various projects for the Ministry of Defence, and we co-ordinate the on-going cabling requirements for local and national museums, providing infrastructure for both the administration departments, along with permanent and temporary exhibition spaces.

We also offer a full suite of passive fire protection solutions to ensure your public buildings remain fire-safe. Working in partnership with one of the market leaders in this space, we can supply a wide range of firestop products and materials that will enable us to seal your service openings and keep the spread of fire and smoke to the minimum.

Network and fire stopping installations can be carried out during or outside of office hours, depending on your schedule, and all of our work will be fully tested with industry standard testers prior to sign off, with the results provided electronically.

Here's some genuine recent feedback from our customers...

  • We recently completed a project to replace 64 wireless access points for Colchester Academy, six of which were high level, externally mounted points, which required the use of a cherry picker. Following the installation, carried out by our team in three days, Ollie Blake, IT Manager, said, “Couldn’t be happier with the install; it was the most stress free project I think we have ever done!”.

  • “Jon and his team wired up my old Victorian property running Cat6 ethernet to each room and to a set of 6 CCTV cameras, as well as running shielded cables to my outbuildings (a games room and an office). It was very important to me that the age and condition of the property be taken into consideration – Jon and his team completely respected this, making very tidy cable runs and cleaning up thoroughly. Performance (in particular latency) are critical to my work, Jon’s team took this into account by using high quality cable, having as few joins as possible and keeping the cable runs short. The guys we’re far more interested in doing a good job than just getting it done quick. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Octopus Cabling and will certainly use them again.”

  • “ The re-launch of the Visitor Centre at Sandringham required a complete new fibre network to connect up both the new ANPR car parking system and EPOS to a dedicated network cupboard with dedicated broadband and 4G backup. The project was complex and required a contractor who was sympathetic to the needs of the operating business as well as able to work alongside a number of other trades. Jonathan and the team from Octopus were first rate, they provided a gigabit network using quality components and handed this over fully tested. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and the team at Octopus to any similar such projects”
