Connexin is a leading Smart City and Technology business. Having recently secured a key 10-year contract with Hull  City Council as part of its aim to make Hull a truly Smart City, Connexin knew it needed state-of-the-art facilities in order to deliver this range of smart city services.

As Connexin’s technology partner, Keysource began working on a new technology campus in 2018. The campus will include a cutting edge data centre as well as Connexin’s new headquarters, which will allow the company to build out the team their next stage of growth.

In order to support the decision making process Keysource developed full business cases for each option including; technical requirements, full lifecycle cost modelling including a review of different cooling options.

This resulted in a highly cost effective data centre that meets all of the requirements of Connexin’s Smart City Projects, Connexin City OS and their Professional Data Centre aspirations.

“The smart cities race has stepped up a gear and this investment lifts Connexin to the front of the field. This investment is accelerating Connexin’s work with local authorities. Working together we can more quickly unlock the societal benefits of the internet of things, which means better transport, cleaner streets, improved health and social care, and a whole lot more.

Keysource’s consultative approach has been key to ensuring this new asset is designed and optimised with the long-term operation of the site in mind”
