Telent wins three-year contract renewal for London’s traffic CCTV network


UK technology and network services company Telent Technology Services has extended its CCTV maintenance contract with Transport for London (TfL) for an additional three years.

Under the agreement, which Telent has held since April 2015, it will continue to provide maintenance of more than 800 street-based CCTV cameras and associated operator interfaces, in TfL’s control centre, offices and on London’s streets. Telent will also restore, upgrade and install CCTV equipment across each of the 33 London boroughs on TfL’s road network.

According to Telent, the contract extension will provide a highly scalable solution that will maintain the current high operational performance and will reduce staff time for planning and inspection of the CCTV equipment.

“Based on our exemplary performance and collaborative approach, TfL are consistently operating above target and we are absolutely delighted to have renewed the partnership until 2022,” said Adam Scriven, account director, London surface communications at Telent.

“As Telent continues to provide high-performance, ultra-reliable and extremely efficient services for TfL, it’s critical that we are able to do so cost-effectively and that is why our proven experience in asset management and extending the life of current equipment, is what makes us a long-term partner of choice for TfL.”

Telent’s portfolio covers both overground and underground networks, with a background in the design, equipment qualification and deployment of technologies to operate within a variety of specialised applications.

The contract extension builds on Telent’s work in mission critical environments, with other customers including Network Rail, Highways England, the University of Exeter and nuclear power plant Hinckley Point C.
