Your network are the roads everything else runs on.

A healthy and well-designed network is crucial to an efficient educational organization, and not having an adequate network can quite literally slow you down. We offer a wide range of network design services to support your school:

Access Network

There are great deal of factors that go into the design and implementation of an effective LAN access layer – subscription levels, Quality of Service, connection medium, and more.

Some important factors to consider include:

  • What types of clients must you support?
  • What are their data needs?
  • What type of reliability do they require?
  • What kind of bandwidth do your clients use? What will they need in the future?
  • What kind of services does your network provide (data, voice, storage)?
  • How will you prioritize and guarantee traffic?

Our network design services include an analysis of your current usage, application types, bandwidth and latency requirements, and more – all the important factors in designing an appropriately-sized network that can scale as your needs grow.

Core Network

Your core network is the backbone of the data transfer within your company. For many organizations, the core network resides within their datacenter. It not only needs to support the transfer of information between your core network endpoints, it needs to be reliable and resilient.

Some important factors to consider include:

  • Where is your data, and how do users get to it?
  • Can your network efficiently support the flow of information?
  • How resilient must your network be, and how many failures can it tolerate?
  • Do you have a Disaster Recovery plan, and does it include your core network?

We can help you design a new core network, as well as assess existing networks and recommend upgrades or reconfigurations.

Wireless Networks

Wireless networks are everywhere, and just about every mobile device on the market makes use of wireless connectivity. Businesses small and large are discovering the productivity benefits of networks that extend beyond the wall jack. Where computers were once bulky and tethered to a large portion of a desk, todays systems are small and highly mobile. As such, computers and their users tend to travel, and the wireless network must follow. The key to an effective & secure wireless network is in the planning and implementation, especially in light of the amount of potential interference and degredation that can result from the large amount of access points that may already be present in many locations. We are able to provide a wide variety of WiFi planning, design, and implementation services.

Education Wireless Networks

Modern school wireless networks propose a few interesting challenges. Typically, device usage is dense and administrators are faced with the task of handling more and more wireless devices on their network. As iPads and iPods work their way into the classroom alongside laptop carts and other wireless devices, it is important to scale the network to handle these devices, as well as ensure the networks our secure. We understand the issues schools face when deploying wireless networks, and will prepare a solution that addresses typical considerations and concerns when deployed in an educational environment.
