Wi-Fi at Kip Gets Major Investment

The installation of a new state of the art Wi-Fi system is underway at Kip Marina as part of an initial £30,000 investment to deliver high capacity Wi-Fi to all our berth holders and across the full marina site, offering secure internet access and delivering a digital connectivity whether on a boat, in Marina Reception or The Chartroom Restaurant.

Installed and managed by Scottish company 802 Works, the first stage ‘Beta’ version is planned to be testing in mid-June with new fibre optic cables being run around the marina and pontoon areas to provide the infrastructure handling for the network.  A high capacity dedicated broadband leased line into the Marina has also been commissioned and, as soon as this is in place, the full capacity Wi-Fi coverage will be available to berth holders.

Providing a 24-hour managed Wi-Fi coverage, 802 Works are experienced in delivering similar projects to large capacity outdoor areas with installations completed at Hamilton Park and Newcastle Racecourses, Perth Concert Hall and RSNO, Alloa and Denny Town Centres to name a few.

Key requirements of the project, which is a direct result of the feedback from the recent Kip Customer Survey, are to offer an improved berth holder experience and to add to the facilities available to visitors, with the option to provide further upgrades in the future such as dedicated direct network connections to individual berths and a premium service to suit those with a need for higher capacity.

Gavin McDonagh, Holt Leisure M.D. said, “We are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our recent Berth Holders Survey and, as a direct response to suggestions on how we can improve our offering, we look forward to partnering with 802 Works as they deliver and manage our new Wi-Fi network which, we believe, will further enhance our reputation as Scotland’s premier marina”.

802 Works CEO Felix Gibson said; “802 are delighted to be invited on board to support Kip Marina’s forward thinking team.  Today, we’re all living in an increasingly interconnected age and relying more and more on strong connectivity. That’s why access to a superior Intelligent WiFi service is an everyday essential and people demand access to high performing WiFi wherever they roam. With 802 delivering cutting edge WiFi throughout the Kip site absolutely everyone visiting and working at the Marina will stay connected”.
