British Steel Scunthorpe

Customer Overview

British Steel Scunthorpe wer suffering a lot of thefts from site so called in the experts to help secure the site.

The Challenge

The Site is very large and has a lot of moving industrial machinery. Rugged Wireless equipment was essential to survive the harsh environment.

The Solution

Videcom are a major SilverNet Systems Partner and integrator. Over recent years SilverNet and Videcom have formed a close partnership, working together on numerous other successful projects utilizing a wide range of SilverNet equipment.

SilverNet’s new PICO is the perfect solution for the “last mile” with its built in antenna and range up to 1km. The PICO was designed and manufactured by British company Silvernet to enable installers the flexibility within their systems to install reliable wireless transmission over shorter distances.


Its lower energy foot print, improved resilience and reduction in spectrum congestion all ensure efficiencies in both the installation costs and running costs of the system. The PICO links provide a cost effective solution with their unique NMS SilverView built in as standard. Whilst they are offered competitively priced there is no compromise on quality.

Danny Harsley Northern Engineering Manager for Videcom said “The PICO links allowed us much more versatility around their mounting position due to their lightweight and minimum size which in turn gave us greater flexibility as to where the cameras could be positioned”

A mixture of both fixed and PTZ IP cameras were used for the project to provide increased coverage and overall better views of the area at any one time. This decreases the overall workload of the end operator, providing a cost effective solution to meet with customer requirements.


The SilverNet equipment worked perfectly with the REDVISION HD IP PTZ and the LG FIXED HD IP The system design requirements were made possible due to the flexibility and costs of the SilverNet Wireless design.
