Problem

Elysian Residences reached out to Stephens IT with a requirement to design and implement an IT infrastructure from scratch for their Landsby Apartments project in Stanmore. Before approaching us, Elysian had no dedicated plan for the IT application.

 

Solution

 

After reviewing the project plans, our proposal was to build an IT network and infrastructure which would involve designing and installing a server solution and implementing a WiFi solution. We also implemented a managed print solution and telephony system, as well as providing all AV equipment.

 

Our mission was to create a solution that once implemented would allow staff to work seamlessly and efficiently throughout the residency with an enhanced end users’ experience. This included the following:

 

Meraki WIFI – We wanted WiFi coverage to be constant throughout the building. To achieve this we designed a solution with 35 access points, which allowed seamless wireless connection in all areas, from the basement to the gym on the 6th floor.

 

AV Equipment – As a resident home we made sure entertainment systems were catered for. For this we specified a projector and TVs for various areas of the building, including the entertainment areas.

 

Server/ Network – We wanted to ensure the network was as reliable as possible, therefore we designed a robust network infrastructure to cater for all entities within the building. This was also designed to support CCTV, kitchen, catering and staff monitoring software.

 

Telephony System – We sat down with the client and designed a telephone system to fit their requirements, which included bespoke hunt groups and auto attendants. This was critical for the business to ensure residents were able to reach the correct departments.
