Local and Enterprise Area Network Support

Small and Enterprise Area Network Support

Most of our client relationships begin with a thorough evaluation of their IT systems. The purpose of this technology evaluation is to establish a comprehensive mutual understanding of the IT infrastructure, the reasoned steps needed to improve it and the documentation to efficiently provide on-going support. Clients receive a detailed report on each aspect of their system, the exposures they represent to their business and budgetary recommendations for specific improvements. Certified engineers inspect and document the infrastructure including:

  • Servers
  • Networks
  • Security
  • Cabling
  • Physical Environment
  • Workstations
  • Services and Monitoring
  • Backup and Redundancy
  • Applications

We evaluate each network component by degree of exposure categorised as CRITICAL, RELIABILITY RELATED or PERFORMANCE RELATED exposures.

  • Critical
  • exposures are issues that can cause the network to stop functioning, lose data, or prevent data recovery or system reconstruction in the event of a failure.
  • Reliability
  • issues are those that cause the network to become unstable or provide inconsistent performance, but without resulting in critical loss of data, or functionality or serviceability.
  • Perfomance
  • issues are those that can affect system responsiveness or throughput, but without a significant loss of data or functionality.
The client receives a report which includes:
  • An overview of the technology infrastructure
  • Summarised and detailed lists of business exposures
  • Recommendations broken down by both degree of exposure and by technical function
  • Network diagrams
  • A list of projects recommended to address weaknesses and their associated costs
  • Product specifications and equipment sourcing recommendations
  • Definitions of technical terms
  • Raw data used to compile the report

We also support all of the equipment in our online shop http://www.information-providers.ie/shop/index.html
