NETWORK & COMMUNICATION

Techknowledge Consulting has alliances with leading worldwide vendors to provide network and security solutions.

Network Assessment

Good network design begins with a thorough assessment of an organization's existing network structure and configuration. En Pointe's team of network engineers will take a comprehensive look at the following key elements:

    Network Requirements

  • LAN requirements, including Layer 2 LAN connectivity, data segregation (VLAN), port density, Layer 3 inter-VLAN routing, bandwidth,
    manageability, scalability, quality of service, resiliency, and inline power.
  • WAN requirements, including WAN topology & protocol, scalability, bandwidth, quality of service, redundancy, manageability, dynamic routing, and Internet peering.

    Security Requirements

  • Border security (firewall), host intrusion detection, intra-organization security, remote access VPNs, network intrusion detection.

    Existing Network Technology

  • Network hardware, current addressing scheme, applications, current performance review.

    Once the assessment is complete, we will deliver a comprehensive report covering LAN recommendations, support options, WAN recommendations, growth or downsizing plans, and security recommendations.

  • Network Design & Deployment

    Our designs are custom-tailored to your current and future business forecasts and technology plans. We ensure that your network architecture meets your enterprise needs and that it will scale appropriately. We're also highly skilled in design against managed-cost considerations.

Design

Our design process includes re-examination of your current environment, architect your new environment, assist in the selection of new technology, design of the physical connectivity and VLAN layout.

We then develop an implementation and testing strategy, formulate a project plan and responsibility matrix, integrate resource requirements, and make a final determination as to how the design addresses the recommendations of the initial assessment.

Integration

We will not only help you assess, plan and design your network solution. We can implement the design either with your staff by our side or we can deliver it as a complete turnkey solution./p>

We will confirm on-site delivery of equipment, review site readiness, unpack equipment, install and integrate hardware, install or upgrade device software, configure devices, perform software installation and configuration, and perform system operations, throughput and system resiliency tests.

Support

We offers a suite of services to ensure that you get the full value of your new network solution. This includes complete and final documentation, service agreements, knowledge transfer to your IT staff, run book formulation, and managed services.

 

Unified Communications (VoIP)

IP Telephony or Voice over IP (VoIP) is one of the most cost-effective and efficient solutions on the market today.

VoIP is the transmission of voice communications via standards-based Internet Protocol (IP) - or more simply, data networks - rather than over standard phone lines.

As a long-overdue replacement for decades-old PBX technology, IP Telephony is being implemented by large and small businesses alike, not only to help control costs, but also to increase efficiency and functionality on the business side.

Our team of expert network engineers and voice specialists can provide your business with a complete IP Telephony solution, from assessment and design through deployment and ongoing support.

 

Secure Wireless Networks

Our team of experts will work with you from initial site survey through design, deployment and ongoing support to meet the specific needs of your business.

If your organization is considering making the jump to a wireless network, you must also consider complex wireless LAN (WLAN) security, deployment, management, and control issues. We have a thorough understanding and extensive experience in these areas and can ensure that your transition to the wireless world goes smoothly.

 

Network Security

Information security is a business concern for all organizations. With security threats increasing in number and sophistication, businesses want to gain protection, control, and visibility over their security systems, preventing incidents and threats that disrupt productivity, impact customer relationships, and erode profits. Government regulations concerning the protection of information also add to the growing emphasis on security.

The most comprehensive approach to network security is an integrated solution that combines:

  • Existing infrastructure devices with embedded security solutions
  • Security devices that have native network intelligence
  • Security policy in a collaborative and adaptive security system
  • Security lifecycle services that maximize network effectiveness

Using the network to provide a common security architecture:

  • Reduces complexity
  • Enables tighter integration
  • Closes risk gaps
  • Provides greater visibilityof end-to-end security
  • Makes security easier to deploy and manage
  • Enables you evolve to advanced security capabilities while protecting your investment

This approach is:

  • Integrated: Every element in the network acts as a point of defense.
  • Collaborative: Various network components work together to provide new means of protection.
  • Adaptive: Innovative behavioral methods automaticallyrecognize and adapt to new types of threats as they arise.
