Even the lift cameras have been incorporated. i2ip installed everything on the system even down to the the new tray work through the risers.
The system has been designed with expandability and future proofing in mind with strategically positioned cabinets and switches. i2ip had to plan and manage the delivery schedule whilst ensuring existing systems stayed operational and deal with the inevitable challenges that a 1950’s listed building of this size and nature will throw at you.

Amongst everything else the network we delivered is carrying an access control system with thousands of users, a CCTV solution with the highest quality images and there are hundreds and hundreds of devices running seamlessly. The team did a remarkable job delivering this in a working building that by it’s nature presents unique challenge.”
