Network Design

Our IT consulting services team utilizes a “best practices” approach to network design. First, we assess your bandwidth needs and perform a comprehensive Statement of Work (SOW). The SOW maps out the entire project, so you know exactly what to expect in terms of cost and timeframe for deployment. Next, our expert IT consultants validate designs against business needs and equipment capabilities. Senior project managers use their experience to make sure we exceed your expectations. Throughout the project, progress is checked to make sure your business objectives are being met.


By separating storage from the systems it serves, consolidation makes it easy to scale storage or server processing power as your needs change. You’ll be able to make more effective use of existing server platforms and reduce the number of servers necessary to support operations. Our storage consolidation solutions have helped our clients eliminate overlapping hardware and software functionality and reduce their server requirements by 50% or more. This kind of consolidation lowers costs for hardware, energy consumption and server software.
