NYMR approached C-Ways to provide a stable and future-proof Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan.


C-Ways supplied and installed Huawei Servers to host NYMR’s current virtual servers and allow NYMR to add additional virtual servers when they are needed. The implementation of Huawei SANs allows NYMR to keep data independently on its own site as well as allowing for backup of data over VPN for disaster recovery purposes.


NYMR required a CCTV system to provide security and live feed video for their customers to view via the internet.  C-Ways recommended, designed and installed Genetec.  Genetec is a multipurpose technology that provides a platform that facilitates communication and security extending beyond physical security.


Our solution incorporates Security Centre; a unified security platform from Genetec.  It blends IP security systems within a single intuitive interface to simplify operations.  Security Centre empowers an organisation, allowing the combination of access control, video surveillance, automatic license plate recognition, communications, intrusion detection, and analytics giving enhanced situational awareness, unified command and control, as well as connectivity to the cloud.


In addition to giving the freedom to choose the IP edge devices that match NYMR’s needs, the Genetec system allows NYMR to extend core functionality with a variety of add-ons, and to unify third party security and business systems.  With flexibility always within reach, Genetec enables NYMR to address emerging needs at any time.


Purple Wi-Fi

During discussions to solve the lack of customer facing Wi-Fi at NYMR, C-Ways recommended Purple as a feature rich option that could integrate seamlessly with their existing infrastructure.

Purple is a cloud-based Wi-Fi analytics and marketing platform that integrates with your existing network to provide a customer friendly platform that allows guests to connect via email or their social networking platforms. This allows NYMR to understand who their guests really are ensuring that they receive useful and meaningful information about their customers.

Purples cloud software is enabled over the existing network and allows access to a wealth of rich Wi-Fi analytics.  The platform displays real-time footfall, passers-by, conversion and bounce rates, dwell times, return visits and frequency, enabling NYMR to truly understand their venues.  Combined, these analytics help to create operational efficiencies to save money and boost revenue. NYMR have now deployed Purple across four of their venues and plan to expand to another venue in the future.


The large amount of storage provided with the installation of the SAN’s, ensures that NYMR will be able to use them for CCTV storage purposes with their current and future systems as required.
