More About Portsmouth Communications:

 

SC Security Cleared

All of our engineering and sales teams are security cleared to SC level enabling us to provide telecoms, network cabling, fibre optics and audio visual services into secure MOD and private sector defense sites.

What is Security Clearance Level: SC?

Personnel Security vetting is carried out so that people may take certain jobs or carry out tasks that need a national security clearance. These jobs and tasks are located throughout the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces, as well as in the private sector dealing with defence related work. In addition, a number of other government departments and organisations require Security Clearance.
The Security Check (SC) is the most widely held security clearance for posts involving long-term, frequent and uncontrolled access to secret assets and occasional and controlled access to top-secret material.

An SC level involves a BC security clearance check, plus checks against the UK criminal and security records (and if appropriate, of overseas countries) and a credit check.

Client Testimonial

After a major weather storm in Portsmouth literally ripped the roof off one of the buildings at BAE Systems, Portsmouth, we were urgently requested to relocated a large number of telephony services to an adjacent building on site. Once the building was repaired we then had to move the telephony services back. On completion of the project CSC, who provide facilities management services to BAE Systems, said “Hi M.L. has asked me to pass on his thanks for the stirling job you (and your teams) have been doing with the user relocations at Broadoak. The users have been up and running again with little or no inconvenience. This has been noted at a higher level and the client is please with the outcome. Thanks, D.P GOS / MSS Project Manager – BAE Systems Account. CSC”

“Portsmouth Communications have been working for the former Royal West Sussex Trust, now the Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust, for the past 8 years and are involved in all of our telecommunication needs. Portsmouth Communications are involved from installing an extra telephone or data point to supplying and installing entire voice and data networks within new buildings. We have always found Portsmouth Communications not only exceptionally professional, but most of all helpful; any issue that arises they will always identify the issue and provide the answer – ‘there is never a problem, only a solution’. The work is not only carried out to a high standard it is also completed on time, even if that means working ‘out of hours’. Due to the nature of hospitals situations can arise where works are needed to be carried out as a mater of urgency and Portsmouth Communications are always there to help at any time if needed. The standard of work and the flexibility that Portsmouth Communications offer makes them our preferred supplier/installer at St. Richards Hospital”.

The Solent NHS training centre in Southampton needed an upgrade to their existing audio visual solution which comprised of a desktop projector and pull down projection screen. They had seen the impressive Smartboard installations we had completed at NHS Omega House and with advice decided that they needed the same solution to enhance their training room environments. As well as installing the Smartboard 680 interactive whiteboards we also relocated network connections to allow for a single point of connection for all services. On completion of this project this is what the customer said about our engineers “Can I also say how impressed my manager and I were by the guys who did the installation, helpful, hard working and tidy, can you pass on my thanks please? Having worked in the electrical installation industry for many years I know how difficult it is to have employees that take a pride in their work!” S.T.
