Contrary to initial perceptions Bridge Systems Ltd are not in the business of building bridges. The company name can be explained twofold;
(1) We design and implement radio communication systems and like a bridge our wireless networks can span areas without contact to the area underneath i.e. our networks can be deployed in areas without the need for cabling. A mesh network can be set up and deployed in a matter of minutes with little effort, or alternatively as a permanent part of an existing infrastructure. the wireless technology offers a way to extend network coverage into hard to access locations and offers additional equipment flexibility by being able to connect IP devices to the mesh nodes. (For more on Wireless mesh click here)
(2) Our offices are located in the Kingdom of Fife overlooking both the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Rail Bridge. The Road bridge, opened in 1964 and spans the Firth of Forth, connecting Edinburgh, at South Queensferry, to Fife, at North Queensferry. It replaced a centuries-old ferry service to carry vehicular traffic, cyclists, and pedestrians across the Forth. Rail crossings are made by the adjacent and historic Forth Rail Bridge, this bridge is a cantilever bridge running over the same estuary; It is the world’s second longest cantilevered bridge being pipped to the post by the Quebec Bridge in Canada which was built approx. 30 years later.
So there we have it, not a physical bridge in sight (well apart from our of our office window!)
