Site Survey

A site survey can save time and help to avoid unforeseen costs. It ensures that everything is ready for installation, so it runs smoothly on the day. You may choose to have a site survey done for complex solutions such as firewalls, servers and networking. Or for simple projects like setting up new PCs or laptops. This is useful if you have limited in-house IT resource, as you’ll need to ensure you have the right connectivity.

A site survey is also recommended for installs in hard to reach places, or before installation of any new network equipment. It's especially important for WiFi solutions, as careful planning of access point locations can optimise coverage and performance.

At-desk installation – for devices

Our deployment services offer an extra level of flexibility to handle at-desk installations. We can do this in standard office hours, at weekends, or even overnight. From single PC installations, to setup of other network devices, to multi-device roll outs, we can help.

Find remote site installs a bind? Send us instead

If you need to complete an installation in a remote office, consider sending one of our engineers instead. This approach makes economic sense, especially if travel and accommodation expenses mean the costs of servicing a remote location soon rack up.

CCTV Camera

AV and IP CCTV installation

Specialist AV (Audio Visual) hardware can sometimes call for a specialist installer. That’s because AV installs can involve handling very heavy and cumbersome kit. And sometimes it's in hard-to-reach or dangerous places like lecture theatre ceilings or high in an atrium.

Similarly, IP-based CCTV solutions often mean installing in high-up places both indoors and out. Choosing a quality partner to manage the installation process for you makes sense. Our service includes expert planning to ensure your cameras are all sited in locations compliant with privacy regulations, as well as installation and setup.

It could be a single projector, an interactive whiteboard, a full media suite, or a complete IP-based CCTV network. Our professional installation service is designed to make things as easy as possible.

Server and complex installations

For mission critical hardware like a server, it’s essential to get the installation and set up right. Through our partners, we can provide specialist, fully accredited engineers to manage server installations for you. We’ll configure your new server to meet your exact requirements. This approach keeps disruption to a minimum and helps get your system up and running in the shortest possible time. We can install your server on site, and mount it into your rack where appropriate. Our accredited engineers can also manage configuration and installation of other solutions such as storage or large routers. They can also design and implement server consolidation and virtualisation solutions.

Structured cabling and wireless networks

Getting the basics right is critical for your whole IT infrastructure. With our structured cabling and wireless installation services, we’ll make sure you optimise your connectivity. Through our partners, we can handle changes to your existing network infrastructure, or install a new structured cabling solution. Our quality structured cabling service provides a robust and reliable network infrastructure.

If you’re moving to new buildings, expanding or reorganising, talk to us about your cabling needs. Using the same approach to assessment, design and installation as our structured cabling solutions, we can also set up wireless LANs. We'll address any concerns you may have about wireless security at every step of the way.
