Making IP Solutions Easy

We offer an end-to-end service covering every aspect of the design and supply of security systems

Our Services

Product distribution

We are distributors for the best brands in the industry, delivering the most cutting-edge technology available. We supply a wide range of products, from cameras to video software, access control, speakers and lighting from brands such as Milestone, Avigilon, ACTi and Paxton. We also supply a range of wireless solutions and server and storage products.

Network design and supply

GVD has designed and commissioned networks for both the IT and security sectors. We can design a new network using our manufacturer partners, or – as is the case with many existing infrastructures – we can make recommendations for integrations into an existing network infrastructure, helping to maximize the current investment.

Server and storage design and supply

We specialise in server and storage solutions, optimised for video surveillance. We build servers to exact operational specifications – from off-the-shelf solutions to bespoke designs, including multi-server and multi-site installations. We understand the importance of the site operating as normal when issues arise. Our solid partnerships with software and hardware manufacturers mean we can help diagnose problems that are either software or hardware related.

Solution and integrations design

GVD will consider the application and design of a suitable solution incorporating network infrastructure, server and storage considerations, camera types and integrations with access control, intruder alarms, video analytics and other third party integrations.

Pre-configuration of hardware and software

We offer a pre-configuration service. This can include assigning IP addresses to cameras and installing Milestone video management software to configuring network infrastructure hardware. Many security integrators opt for this service in order to reduce their onsite time. It means that when you receive your solution from GVD, it is ready to go out of the box – all you have to do is mount, connect and power-up.

Intelligent wireless and Wi-Fi

GVD supplies a range of wireless solutions, including fully managed Wi-Fi solutions suitable for schools, colleges, universities campus, hotels, apartment complexes, office blocks and large event venues. We also supply a range of outdoor solutions, including point-to-point and multi-point solutions that are suitable for multiple applications – including CCTV and voice or data solutions.

Remote and onsite support and commissioning

Remote support and commissioning can be billed on an hourly basis, making it a very cost-effective service. We also offer onsite support, with advanced certified engineers attending site to assist with new installations or maintenance. This service is offered at a discounted rate to customers who have purchased from GVD. We have a dedicated technical support team to back up the solutions we provide, and are always available to answer technical queries or give recommendations – providing you with the right expertise to get the job completed.

Installer and end user training

We train security solution installers in IP networking and video surveillance. Our dedicated training centre (the nIPx, in Dublin 12) offers state of the art facilities with a fully integrated demonstration security system. We offer hands-on practical training to sell, specify, install and maintain IP-based security solutions. We are the only certified Irish trainer for Milestone. To meet the increasing needs of consulting engineers in the area of solution design, we run CPD certified courses to support them with the tender specification process.

Choosing GVD to be your IT partner means event managers and staging teams can focus on other areas of the event, safe in the knowledge that the IT infrastructure is being deployed and managed by a highly trained and highly experienced team.


“The consultancy we received from GVD was second to none. They monitored the whole IT & Communications operation from start to finish from site visits and cable assessments at the K Club, to ensuring the operation ran smoothly during the event week. In a very confusing world, GVD project managed the whole operation to ensure that the Ryder Cup was 100% successful from a telecommunications perspective. The K Club as a green-field site had very little infrastructure and GVD initiated the planning from the start. Having GVD on board took a huge weight off our shoulders and enabled us to concentrate on staging the event. The importance of GVD managing the project cannot be over-emphasised and it saved us months of time and hassle”.

Antonia Beggs, Event Staging Manager, Ryder Cup

“Now that the dust has settled after a memorable Ryder Cup, I felt it was appropriate that I, on behalf of the European Tour Communications Department express our thanks to you and your team for all their commendable efforts. We had over 1000 media personnel in attendance for the week of the Ryder Cup and to my knowledge there was not one complaint about the reliability of the connectivity or level of service provided by the GVD team in our media centre. We were delighted with the consultancy provided by you during the build up to the event and your onsite presence during the event helped us greatly. You delivered reliable connectivity, which in turn made our job easier. A contented media is far more acceptable to us than an unhappy media! The European Tour – our Communications Department in particular- would have no hesitation in recommending GVD and we all look forward to working with you again in the future”

Gordon Simpson, Director of Communications, Ryder Cup

“May I express my sincere thanks for everything that you and your team did for this year’s Nissan Irish Open. From what seemed a great challenge to bring the Irish Open to Baltray only encouraged all those involved in making it a classic event that many people including myself will treasure. So far the best phone system company we have worked with!”

Tom Critchley, Event Staging Co-ordinator, European Tour

“The best Media Centre ever at any world cycling event, including the Tour de France. We look forward to working with you at our next event”

Alan Rushdon, Managing Director, The Events Group.
