SMART IT NETWORKS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTIONS

Featured Media has successfully accomplished the network architecture of the “Smart Building” project “Q Spa Resort” winner of International Property Awards Europe in category of highly commended for “Leisure Development Turkey 2013”.

The developers had a clear vision, and wanted to break new ground, as they knew that “Technological advances would soon become an essential part of your new lifestyle.”

Featured Media’s role was to design and specify the new Telecommunication concept for condominiums and it consisted of:

  • Building Data Network (A high-speed building network system, vertical fiber optic backbone with horizontal Cat6 cabling to all Units)
  • Installing a network management center inside the building in order to distribute and manage a wide variety of services such as: Internet, Intercom, Telecommunication, Video Security and Data Storage.
  • Internet Shared Connectivity
  • Wired and Wireless Internet access in every unit
  • Concierge services accessible through multi-purpose VOIP phones
  • Installing individual routers and cordless voip-phones for each unit
  • Enabling them to make and receive national and international VOIP calls from home

We have designed and developed an entirely new Telecommunication concept using Open Source technology for this building comprising 96 apartments and various on-site facilities. All apartments, management offices and on-site facilities are interconnected through a network management center inside the building with a dedicated VMware Esxi 5.5 Server.

We have utilized the latest virtualization technology in this project. This technology has enabled us to use only one dedicated hardware server instead of many independent parts; as such, the cost of hardware has significantly reduced and the system became more efficient and compact. This solution has provided us with a greater mobility and flexibility in order to accommodate all relevant features of a smart building.

Our unique project has helped the client save money and time by successfully combining the internal and external telecommunication needs into one integrated smart system. Instead of an analogue intercom, we proposed to install individual routers and cordless voip-phones for each apartment. Through this set up, each apartment was connected to the facilities of the resort, such as the security, reception, concierge, house-keeping, restaurant and spa club, as well as accommodating national and international calls.

A new and revolutionary system to receive and make calls: the entire building has been assigned with national and multi-national landline numbers. An Interactive Voice Response answers to all calls and diverts the call to the relevant unit through an extension number. In this building where there are multi-national residents, they can receive calls for free from their home country. The caller abroad only pays a local rate as they call their country’s virtual landline number assigned to the building. The home-owner can also make outside calls by purchasing prepaid minutes online for cheap international calls.

With this new system, the management engaged only one contract with the internet service provider on behalf of all the 96 homeowners and distributed the hi-speed internet to the individual router of each apartment in the condominium. As a result, the homeowners saved significant amounts on their monthly internet bills, and were able to access to a much higher connection speed. The internet fee of the building is divided to the number of apartments and simply built into the HOA fees with a minor adjustment.

Now we would like to introduce this technology to the newly built condominium projects in Miami and help them stay one step ahead of their competitors with the use of this inexpensive but highly beneficial system for home-owners.
