Customer Profile

VenuesWest is Western Australia’s provider of premier sports, recreation and entertainment venues.

Business Situation

To meet the high demands and expectations of Perth Arena in regards to patron experience, VenuesWest required the installation of:

  • A high performance, venue wide network active equipment as a backbone for other services.
  • A high density wireless network to support guest access plus POS, ticketing and administration.
  • A Voice-Over-IP (VOIP) telephony system to support operation and administration of the venue.


R-Group has deployed HP Enterprise-grade networking equipment and Microsoft Skype for Business Unified Communications for telephony. R‑Group was responsible for design, supply, install and configuration of HP wired and wireless networking plus HP Blade/SAN with Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Skype for Business.

R-Group’s role in the project was as systems integrator, providing:

  • Project planning and management
  • Network design – wired and wireless
  • Sourcing of networking equipment and associated peripherals
  • Configuration and installation of HP wired networking core switches and access switches
  • Configuration and installation of HP wireless access points including design and build of custom mounting brackets
  • Data cabling to support wireless access points
  • Build of HP Blade/SAN with VMware to support Microsoft Skype for Business
  • Design, install and roll-out of Microsoft Skype for Business telephony using Polycom Skype-optimised phones
  • User training
  • Comprehensive documentation
  • On-going support and maintenance.

R-Group used their highly experienced on-site install team combined with proven project methodology to deliver all project requirements when due and within financial allocation.
