CINDER BAR WI-FI AND LOCAL NETWORK SETUP
Cinder Bar (a local Brick Fire Oven Pizzeria & Bar) was getting ready to open and contacted E3 IT Services to assist in getting all workstations networked together as well as setup Wi-Fi to be capable of covering the entire building for both employees and guests. Wi-Fi also had to be capable of segmenting traffic between private company users and guests. To accomplish this E3 IT Services installed four Ubiquiti enterprise class wireless access points to properly cover the area as well as have software options to limit guest user access. Access points were also configured to request that guests accept a custom disclaimer before allowing connection and redirection to restaurant webpage after successful connection. Two MAC workstations were installed to handle advertisements, menu and specials on TV screens. In order to modify the offerings that the MACS could display, a MAC workstation in the office was to be configured for remote access to each. To accomplish this E3 IT Services installed a Netgear FVS318n Firewall Router to handle local network traffic and setup each MAC properly with power options, remote settings, and user availability. E3 IT Services ran data lines to all workstations and back to patch panel on wall as well as mount and setup network switches, router and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery backup units to handle all network equipment.
NEW OFFICE SETUP
October 1, 2015
Customer moved into a new office without any previous data lines. E3 IT Services ran 11 data lines to customer specific locations. All data lines ran back to small storage closet where E3 IT Services installed and mounted board with patch panel, network switch and Comcast equipment. All equipment was connected to a Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery backup unit to ensure network would continue to operate during power outage. E3 IT Services supplied and configured Lenovo All-in-Ones Computer Workstations and Desktops for the office, deployed Symantec Cloud Endpoint Antivirus and installed Microsoft Office 2013 for all workstations.
OFFICE EXPANSION SETUP
Clients expanded to a new office that was located in the same complex but not directly next to the existing office. E3 IT Services worked with building superintendent and various other companies in the Main Street Voorhees complex to gain access to their offices and space and run two up-link cables, one for data and one for voice for use in the client's new office. After data wires where ran E3 IT Services wired office with 16 data runs including voice and data. New network data and voice switches were installed and configured to run second office. Verified connection to the server and installed Wi-Fi into new office.
MUNICIPAL E-MAIL CUT-OVER
Municipal employees were using an old outdated e-mail platform and server that was limiting their abilities to respond quickly to e-mails and keep appropriate e-mail records. E3 IT Services offered a new Office365 Exchange solution. E-mail would be hosted in the cloud and would be able to sync with all devices. E3 IT Services migrated all current e-mails from the old e-mail Server to the new Office365 Platform. Setup and configured 50 e-mail accounts in Outlook and all devices needed to access e-mail.
