Networks are the glue that holds your IT systems together. Poor performance on your systems can often be associated with underlying problems with your network.
It is important that effective planning goes into your network design. Like the plumbing in your house, a poorly designed network can cause multiple network “blockage” issues around the office and can become quite expensive to replace should it need to be pulled out and redesigned.
You should never let network design become an afterthought when it comes to scaling your business or simply looking to setup a new business.
The firewall is your first line of defence when it comes to protecting and securing your organisation.
Our network team ensures that our security appliances are backed by brands such as Cisco, Fortinet & Ubiquiti. A modern firewall should include IDS & IPS systems to not only detect threats but prevent them from entering your networks.
Switches help packets of information travel across your network from point A to point B in a reliable and consistent method.
Switching equipment should be procured from a reliable and trusted manufacturer and installed by certified engineers who understand and know the equipment.
Due to the amount of data that can be carried across networks in this digital economy it is vital that your switches are scalable to keep up with your business needs.
As many modern voice systems now rely on data to make and receive calls, it’s important that your switches are up to the task.
Traditionally wireless networks were an afterthought to wired networks given their unreliability and often slow network speeds.
With the advancement of modern wireless equipment, speeds and reliability are often on par with their wired counterparts. For existing sites with little physical network cabling wireless networks can often be the answer.
Mesh wireless networks are a technology that allow you to distribute wireless signals across your office space using multiple wireless devices, but they appear as one single network to your end users.
Gone are the days of different wireless network names for each part of the office!
We also have the experience to troubleshoot and resolve issues with ongoing wireless performance issues.
