Here East receives prestigious Wired Certified Platinum rating

WiredScore have awarded Here East the prestigious Wired Certified Platinum rating, making Loughborough University London and other connected buildings at Here East among the most elite in the world.

Wired Certification is a trusted benchmark for commercial property connectivity that independently certifies the digital infrastructure of buildings. Originally launched in partnership with the Bloomberg administration in New York City in 2013, WiredScore UK launched in October 2015 with endorsement from the Mayor of London to boost the capital’s digital connectivity.

Here East was created from the former Olympic Press and Broadcast Centres, which hosted TV crews and journalists from around the world during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralymic Games. Now, the site has been transformed into a unique digital landscape with connectivity at the core of both buildings’ design. Here East consists of 1.2 million sq ft of dedicated and versatile space for educators, creative enterprises and digital organisations, and offers world class connectivity, with unrivalled access to data and power.

Here East received the highest possible grade from WiredScore for flexibility, diversity, and power:

Flexibility: the number of internet service providers being installed in both buildings offers maximum flexibility 

Diversity: both buildings have diversity across the site and especially within both buildings; there are multiple universal communications chambers surrounding Press Centre and Broadcast Centre, which makes installation of new services fast and easy. There are multiple communication points of entry, as well as diverse risers, in each building which creates full redundancy and reduces the risk of any single point of failure.

Power: the power for both buildings is fed from three individual substations. This increases resiliency and redundancy.
