Current Project: Plymouth Congregational Church

Premier Communications is currently working on a project at the Plymouth Congregational Church in downtown Fort Wayne, IN.  The project includes removing the existing fire alarm system and installing an updated system while also adding security and camera systems to the building.  The biggest challenges on this project are working with the historic architecture of the 93-year old building and also trying to make our work and the new devices “blend in” to their surroundings.  We are striving to preserve the look and feel of the original building while still providing the church with modern day safety and security systems.

New Office Opens Up New Opportunities To Showcase Work

Before moving in to their new office in October of 2014, Premier Communications completely removed the existing data and network infrastructure, rebuild the TR (telecommunications room), and added many new systems to the facility. “This new facility is exciting for us to have a place to bring in clients and show them not only what we are capable of, but what products and options are available to them”, states Michael Mansfield, Premier’s Director. “We have nearly 200 CAT6 data drops using a Panduit/General Cable solution, a 10GB closed fiber loop to a detached building, full security system, a 12 door card access system (including card access into the data rack, a video phone for remote access to the delivery door, as well as 30 channels of full HD ip video.” The facility has also been configured to be a training facility for our technicians, allowing them to come in and try new features and programming on our system before they are at a customers location. We have hosted many clients who simply want to come in and see the products that we are selling them in real life before buying them. Our camera system features a 16TB RAID NVR with cameras from Axis Communications and Arecont ranging from sub $200 to over $3,000.
