Six-figure recycling connectivity contract won for Gateshead IT specialist

North East IT specialist Advantex has won a six-figure contract to supply a set of super-fast connectivity, networking and access control equipment to Teesside-based advanced recycling facility ReNew ELP, a subsidiary of Mura Technology.

The move sees the Gateshead-based company deploy internet connectivity, “state-of-the-art” IP cameras, IP audio and access control, cybersecurity subscriptions, server infrastructure and firewall technology. fire for ReNew ELP.
