Interwiz enables allows faster internet and voip phone system.


CMI Planners came to Ground Kontrol (Our Parent Company) with a few issues.

After moving their offices from the center of Magherafelt to Toomebridge CMI Planners discovered that their new offices while being state of the art the area was only capable of 1-2Mb Broadband via BT broadband, having a busy office with 5 plus staff sending and receiving large files all day this was not ideal, to say the least.


This is where we devised a strategy to not only provide CMI Planners with superfast broadband in there new rural location but to provide them with enough speed to also run a new state of the art VOIP phone system. We ran tests with our demo system and seen we could achieve 40Mb plus reaching speeds of 65 Mb. We started by installing out Interwiz System which instantly impressed CMI then we designed, Cabled, Installed and a full functioning 10 line VoIP system which not only saved CMI roughly £100 per month but also left them with more lines and full mobile phone calling included.


CMI Planners now have access to internet speeds of 40Mb, where previously they were only getting speeds of 1-2Mb. Not only has this allowed them to keep the business better connected they can now enjoy a better browsing experience and have the ability to stream HD videos and use applications such as Skype alongside there no Voip phone system. In addition to this, they also have a reliable system that allows them to remotely access to their video surveillance network, something which was not possible with their old ADSL connection. The Interwiz connection has also meant that Interwiz were able to implement an internal WiFi system throughout the whole premises.
