Networks

 

Network design is one of the most important considerations when implementing an IT solution or setting up a new site. A well designed network will offer a reliable, high performance platform to access your servers and applications. A poorly designed, over-complicated network will have completely the opposite effect with users spending most of the day on the phone to the help desk.

SWITCHES, ROUTERS & FIREWALLS

Networks rely on Layer 3 and Layer 2 services for segmentation and security so we only select products that tick these boxes and have a proven track record based on previous projects.

HP Procurve switching provides a secure platform with any easy to use management interface, ideal for the SME but scalable to much larger enterprise projects. The Procurve range is ideal for core networking, network distribution over fibre, iSCSI SAN links and fibre channel SAN links.

On the firewall side we supply and install Stormshield products which are EAL4 certified with full UTM security and additional content filtering options. The products range from small SOHo devices to full enterprise solutions.

DATA CENTRE SERVICES

If you are looking for hosted servers or some rack space to co-locate your network then look no further.

We can recommend a data centre that will look after your IT and configure it for your chosen service e.g. Web Hosting, AD Replication, Offsite replica backups or thin client services such as RDS or Citrix.

SERVER ROOMs & CABINETS

There are many different options for managing cabling and distributing networks around a building - but where do we hide all that messy cabling ? Many networks grow ‘organically’ with the business which results in tangled, messy cabling, damaged equipment and frequent outages. We are able to source new racks and cabinets of all shapes and sizes and come in to give the comms room a fresh, tidy look with fully labelled inventory.

We use certified local companies for CAT6 and fibre cabling jobs.
