experts in Wireless & Public Safety Solutions


IBWS Mission

IBWS provides consulting and design/build / monitor / maintain services to building owners and enterprise customers looking to implement a cellular enhancement or ERRCS (ERRCS). Our expertise is in determining the most suitable and affordable technology to address your need. Wireless networks are oftentimes designed and installed by companies that either have an expertise in one area or business arrangement with one OEM- so you get what’s appropriate from them but not what’s suitable for you.

IBWS determines what’s best for you and partners with companies that will deliver a customized solution to meet your needs.
