BBC purchases DELEC intercom for Broadcasting House

The BBC has purchased a DELEC intercom system from UK distributor Aspen Media for its refurbished and extended Broadcasting House headquarters and broadcast center in London’s West End.

The system to be installed for the first phase of the Broadcasting House redevelopment is configured with a central hub that interconnects the studios, master control rooms and the external lines to other BBC sites and various outside sources. The hub is composed of a redundant pair of 20482 Centrix central routers that connect via fiber optics to Oratis frames in local apparatus rooms. There, local ports connect to DELEC subscriber panels and handsets, a traditional feature of communications within Broadcasting House.

The local frames also handle a number of functions not normally required of an intercom system, which might otherwise have required additional systems to accomplish.
