Spinning Security at 500 Feet

    1 Comment

    This doesn’t affect any of the visiting tourists, but here is a short article from JMR SoftwareSystems about the challenges implementing a network at the spinning restaurant at the Skylon Tower:

    The very location of the RDR presents a challenge. With a more than 500 foot span from the central computers at the bottom of the tower to the terminals at the top, fibre optic connections are necessary to bridge the gap. In the dining room stations are located on both the revolving floor and the stationary centre, making wireless connectivity for the system a must.

    1. Thanks for posting this Graham. You’re the best. The tourist season for some interesting IT projects in Niagara. When it’s fall and winter we do upgrades and enhancements. When summer returns everything locks into maintenance mode.
