Businesses of all sizes depend upon networks for communications, the exchange of information, access to the Internet, and the shared use of servers, printers, and email and instant messaging applications. The better the network, the better the communication; person to person, application to device.
NetSmith specializes in the development of business networks, designed to meet the specific needs of your organization. From a simple local area network (LAN) to a virtual office, we tailor the network solution to fit your business requirements and goals. The phases of network development are: requirements analysis, design, and implementation, and may include ongoing operational support and optimization.
Requirements analysis and definition Our network consultants begin by gathering functional and operational requirements, including how each feature should perform. We work with you to understand your basic business model, how your firm uses the current technology and expectations for the future. After a thorough review of your existing network, our consultants prepare a requirements definition report that details the full scope of the network operations requested, including financial and other boundaries, for confirmation by you.
Network Design Working from the agreed upon requirements definition, we develop an innovative network design that offers cost-saving options, such as open-source or cloud technology, meets your requirements, and delivers consistent, reliable communications.
Implementation NetSmith certified system engineers and technicians implement your custom-designed network; installing, integrating and testing all components to ensure the highest level of performance and availability.
Information Systems Review
Systems Review Our consultants review the systems you use and the jobs you want done, to determine if you are using the proper tools for the job. We use our understanding of your requirements along with the assessment of your current network to identify the sources of problems and areas for improvement.
Recommendations We take the information gathered during our Systems Review and recommend changes, modifications, or even the elimination of network components. Sometimes a re-tooling is needed, sometimes a new tool is needed, and sometimes a tool may cause more problems than it may fix. The recommendation may include cost-saving open-source alternatives and system upgrade options to maximize network performance, capacity, availability, reliability and security.
