Current Internet Connectivity

How does your business currently connect to the internet? Do you own your equipment or is it rented? If we upgrade the internet connection, it may require upgraded equipment as well.

Application Requirements

Your Existing Infrastructure

What is the current physical layout of your network? Is your network cabling running overhead? On the floors? In the walls? When we are planning new equipment placement, we need to take your physical infrastructure into account.

The New Services You Will Require

What type of services will you need to add in the future? We want our network installation services to be prepared for your future needs as well as your current requirements.

Temperature and Climate Concerns

In the wrong environment, network hardware can become overheated. If the level of humidity is too high, there can be issues with moisture. You will need a network hardware space that is away from ventilation ducts or cold air return vents.

Security and Privacy Concerns

What are your current security precautions? We might be able to get rid of extra hardware and streamline your security measures.

Your Wireless Network Needs

Are you planning on moving from a wired network to a wireless one? A mix of the both? How expansive is the area that the wireless network needs to service? All wireless access points are limited by specific ranges to maintain expected performance levels.

Budget Limitations

We will always work to stay within the limitations of your budget. We will help you find the balance between how much you want to invest and the services that you want upgrade or install.

Reliability and Uptime Requirements

How much downtime can your business sustain before there is profit loss? Expecting 100% uptime all the time is going to be costly and ultimately impractical. How much reliability can your business afford?
