Telecommunications

ENGINEERING, INTEGRATING AND SECURING YOUR TECHNOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENTS

Over the past 40 years, the SNC-Lavalin Telecom team, part of the company’s Global Power division, has fully mastered the complex art of telecommunication projects, from network design and system architecture to integrating technological platforms. Its specialists offer outstanding engineering and project management services in several disciplines, including voice networks (IP and conventional telephony), computer networks, wireless networks, structured wiring (cabling) systems (fibre, coaxial, copper), security systems and critical infrastructure protection.

A WELL-ESTABLISHED CONNECTION BETWEEN TWO WORLDS. We specialize in bridging the gap between the worlds of technology and physical infrastructure. We provide telecommunication and information systems consulting services for institutions, construction companies and operators for various physical infrastructures (buildings, transmission lines, power plants, airports, stadium, highways, bridges, subways/trains/buses, etc.).

Our fields of technological expertise includes:

  • IP, MPLS, SONET, SDH and ATM networks;
  • LAN, MAN, WAN, VPN infrastructure;
  • Planning and layout of sites, control rooms and data centres;
  • Mobile (trunking) radio, cellular, WiFi, distributed antenna systems (DAS), microwave relays;
  • Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and conventional telephony (TDM);
  • Structured cabling system (fibre and copper);
  • Cable television infrastructure, external networks and overhead ground wire;
  • Critical infrastructure protection (CPI);
  • Video surveillance and access control;
  • Digital video encoding and recording;
  • Video-on-Demand (VoD);
  • IP based sound system;
  • Power supply and grounding.

LIAISON BRYSON-VIGNAN, HYDRO-QUÉBEC

As part of Hydro-Québec telecommunication system upgrade, SNC Lavalin Telecom (SLT) was awarded a contract to replace the analogue microwave links with a digital transmission system between the Vignan substation in Gatineau and the Bryson power plant in the Pontiac region. SLT replaced a 34 km microwave link and installed five runs of fiber optic cable totaling 81 km in length. The project also brought 6 telecommunication rooms in transformer substations up to standard.

Country : Canada

REPLACEMENT OF EXISTING OVERHEAD GROUND WIRE WITH OVERHEAD FIBRE OPTIC GROUND WIRE

SNC-Lavalin Telecom (SLT) has completed several studies for the installation of optical fibre composite overhead ground wire (OPGW).For the Ethiopian Electric Power Company, SLT carried out a feasibility study for the telecommunication aspects of an OPGW installation over 4,000 km of electrical power transmission lines in Africa. The project objective was to improve the electric company's communication network, specifically its master computer system and its electrical power control system and teleprotection, as well as to develop the fibre optic telecommunication network by sharing the electrical power system infrastructure.For Great Lakes Power Limited, SLT completed the detailed engineering study of the optical fibre portion of the project to the installation of OPGW on approximately 164 km of transmission lines and termination of optical fibre cables in 3 transformer stations.For the Makivik Corporation, SLT participated in a technical feasibility study for the closure of Nunavik with a line of high voltage transmission with OPGW. This construction project was to connect all 14 villages of Nunavik to the Hydro Quebec network.

INTEGRATION OF INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS), MTQ

As part of the project for the integration of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and the operation of existing and planned road infrastructures on the Montreal Island territories, East of Montérégie and Laval Milles-Îles directorates, SNC-Lavalin Telecom (SLT) served two mandates with the Ministry of Transportation (MTQ). The first mandate was to prepare a preliminary detail design study to guide the department in assessing the work required to modernize the telecommunication network, the ITS infrastructures and the operating systems of the Greater Montreal traffic control centre. SLT then obtained the mandate to work on the detailed engineering and specifications in preparation of the tender for the modernization of the Ville-Marie tunnel control room, especially to upgrade remote monitoring systems, computer network and structured cabling.
