Local hotel required a new PBX installation due to their old one packing up and beyond repair. G17 provided 2 specs with options to meet current phone capacity and options to investigate a reduction in phone capacity. G17 also carried out a survey and suggested that a data cab would be far better to enable the installation to be kept secure and tidy which would help in any future faulting, provisions and repair. As some of the devices in the PBX area contained sensitive information and were also located close to public areas, a data cabinet would allow for a more secure installation.
Based on customers’ requirements and budget, G17 put forward two options for installation for their new PBX system and listed the pros and cons of both systems
This new system had to also integrate with their current wiring infrastructure as any additional wiring installations would significantly increase the cost of the installation. With this in mind G17 proposed an Orchid 416 telephone system which would provide a like for like service from the old PBX with the added ability to allow the hotel to move across to VoIP when suitable but also keep all the features of a traditional PBX system.
G17 is proud to have been instrumental in providing Montgomery Town Hall and Broad Street with Public WIFI access enabling the Town Council to offer WIFI services to visitors, residents, business and community events.
Using the latest in WIFI technology, the installation has been future proofed and is adaptable to future technological changes while also ensuring compliance with relevant public access requirements.
Providing WIFI hardware components for such a historic building had met with some challenges. Asbestos areas had to be identified and avoided and cables had to be kept out of sight. Providing power to each AP would have involved additional expense so PoE AP's were used throughout. Public hotspot servers have also been deployed to meet with current UK laws and these have been configured with DNS proxy to ensure a level of filtering. Remote access to the whole system was also required so the site, equipment and configurations can be managed remotely.
One thing I love about building these is the insight into the lives of these people. Darren has a genuine love of the wild, nature and its inhabitants and making the best of the surroundings to ensure protected species have the best chance possible where us folk wish to tread.

farm cctv repair & test
Local farmer with an extensive range of farm machinery approached G17 with an enquiry for CCTV repair on a system that had been installed over 5 years ago. G17 carried out a survey and agreed to try and get all 10-camera’s working plus CCTV recorder. The recorder would not view any images from any of the camera and was also not recording. Further investigation revealed that the hard drives had failed and internal fan had stopped working. Luckily all that was wrong with the camera were bad joints and power feed failures. Three cameras are PTZ (Pan Tilt & Zoom, as shown in the image above) so the data pair had to also be checked for continuity and data.
With 2 new CCTV compatible hard drives installed, a new fan and a software update the CCTV was as good as new. Old taped joints replaced with grease filled crimps and new power feeds all 10 cameras are now working. Our client was impressed with the success rate of the repairs and we are now in the process of alarming some of the offsite lock ups - deploying some very useful technology
