Home > Case Studies > Cressall Resistors Network Upgrades


February 2015


Cressall Resistors are based in Leicester with a second office in Dereham and in 2006 merged with TPR Resistors, creating the world's foremost resistor manufacturer and the UK's most experienced team of professionally qualified power resistor design engineers. They offer a wider range of technologies than any other power resistor manufacturer in the world and almost 100 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of electrical resistors for use in power generation, high voltage and medium voltage power distribution, marine and offshore electrical systems, drives and controls for cranes, hoists and industrial machinery, rail traction and standby power systems.


Cressall had network connectivity problems throughout the building at Leicester and needed something more robust than their current setup and something that Geostream could use to provide data and statistics.

After discussion around a larger project to be completed later in the year, it was decided that the first stage should be to upgrade their switches to improve the network, provide redundancy, better management and implement VLANs in preparation for the server virtualisation project.
