After problems with broken network cards and tangled cables in its busy studios, ITN has begun rolling out a wireless local area network (Lan) infrastructure.
The wireless Lan has been deployed by services provider Telindus in two offices and one news studio, and centres on five Mobility Points from wireless firm Trapeze Networks.
"ITN's business is dictated by world events, and we often need to get equipment into the studio at short notice. Cables, wires and network cards frequently get damaged in the process," said Ian Auger, head of IT and communications at ITN.
"We decided that a wireless network was the best way to rapidly deploy equipment, and were impressed by the amount of functionality versus cost effectiveness."
Kees van Veenendaal, managing director and vice president of EMEA sales at Trapeze, added: "This shows how wireless networks can transform working practices, even in difficult environments.
"The aim is to use the network in all studios and selected offices, so that they can benefit from increased mobility too."
Chris Poole, southern accounts manager at Telindus, said that ITN's requirements for the wireless Lan included mobility combined with strong encryption and authentication.
