|Residents can communicate quickly between the blocks just by dialling extension numbers
Binayak Group is a Kolkata based real estate firm providing a wide range of residential and commercial projects. For an upcoming project on multiple residential towers, the firm wanted to set up a communication network.
They wanted an IP based intercom system to minimise cabling costs, and also wanted the communication system to be scalable for future expansion and manageable from remote location.
The group required an intercom solution that could overcome following the challenges:
- Alternative solution for complex cabling and costs associated with traditional intercom systems.
- Connectivity between two systems and transparent availability of calling features.
- Scalability of system capacity to support future expansion plans.
- Advanced intercom features to map flats to extension numbers, security extensions, security alarm and reporting, paging with public addressing system.
Matrix ETERNITY LE and ETERNITY ME
Matrix along with channel partner - Amtel Communication offered an IP based building intercom solution. Matrix offered ETERNITY LE and ETERNITY ME – The IP-PBXs for two different blocks with 10+ residential towers in each block. Furthermore, both the blocks were interconnected over IP through an optic fibre network which eliminated one-to-one cabling of extensions in both the blocks. This eliminated complex cabling between two blocks and subsequently reduced the cabling cost by up to 40%. The Matrix building intercom solution provides a compact platform with convenient features and flexible functionalities, eliminating the need of large power supply and multiple cabinets.
- Block A – 15 towers each with 50 flats connected with ETERNITY LE
- Block B – 11 towers each with 29 flats connected with ETERNITY ME
- Reduced cabling costs by connecting separate towers over peer-to-peer IP networking.
- Remote management of all systems eliminating personal site visits for configurations or minor changes
- Reduced up to 40% of cabling cost
- Residents can communicate quickly between the blocks just by dialling extension numbers.
- Easy to manage and configure the system with web based GUI.
- Open to future scalability plans.
