The Church of St Andrew’s & St George’s West asked Premitel to upgrade their internal network infrastructure to provide wireless and wired internet access for staff and guests throughout the premises.
The network infrastructure also had to support the current analoge phone system and be capable of supporting a VoIP based replacement phone system sometime in the future.
Upgrade Network Infrastructure
Premitel provided a complete design and install service for a Cat 5 structured cabling system to meet the Church’s requirement.
The building was a mixture of old and new with several parts of the building having listed status with significant limitations on how the cabling could be run.
Premitel also supplied and configured the router, the network switch and the 4 x wireless access points that were necessary to provide comprehensive WiFi coverage throughout the building.
Replace Obsolete Analogue Phone System
A few months after the network upgrade Premitel were asked to submit a proposal for replacing the Church’s existing analogue phone system which was becoming end-of-life with consequent withdrawal of maintenance support by BT.
Hosted VoIP Phone System
The Church accepted our proposal for a hosted VoIP phone system that included desk phones and cordless phones.
Implementation of the hosted VoIP system was relatively straightforward as the site benefitted from a structured network cabling system which had been installed previously by Premitel.
The new telephone handsets could therefore be plugged-in to existing network sockets. This enabled easy connection in the comms cabinet to the new internet service.
Premitel continue to support the Church by providing tweaks, updates and configuration changes to the phone system in response to their changing operational requirements. This is all covered by the VoIP service charge.
One of the benefits of a hosted VoIP solution is that such changes can be done remotely and can be implemented immediately.
