Excellent networks don't just happen. They're planned.
 
 
 
Start your network journey on the right foot. You and I will plan and build your computer network so that it returns maximum value.
 
We can start with a LAN (Local Area Network), add a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network, for remote access), and expand to or interface with a WAN (Wide Area Network).
 
We can build a productive intranet and profitable extranet atop these platforms. 
  
Create Robust New Networks

 
I help you maximize return on investment by starting your network right.
 
 
Computer networks tend to grow out of control and slow down as they grow. Planning and building your network correctly will keep it under your control and keep it working fast for you. 
    
 
 
Building a computer network is like building a house: it's only as sturdy as its foundation.

How is a network at home different from one at work? 

I ensure that business networks may be easily managed through creation of roaming profiles and group policies. Initial setup takes work, but pays off with happy and productive users, easy expansion, and secure management.

 

I create disaster-proof networks by installing robust data backup systems with easy to follow procedures.

 
  
Grow and Improve Existing Networks

 
As a PC network grows, its connections can slow and become unreliable. Diagnosing problems with printing, file and drive sharing, and user privileges can be difficult on unplanned computer networks. Once a network grows beyond a few computers, good planning (or lack thereof) becomes evident to its users.
 
Maintaining high performance on networks is an art that requires that the network planner understand network hardware and network protocols. Simply plugging components into a network will often work, but result in unnecessary network congestion that slows down everyone.
 
The secret to a speedy network is to transmit the necessary packets -- and no others -- on each segment. On poorly planned networks, superfluous packets, packet collisions, dropped packets, and retransmitted packets "clog the pipes" and reduce everyone's speed. 
 
If you have a PC network of up to ten or so PCs, your computer network is probably at the point where it needs structure to support further growth. I'm not interested in selling hardware. I help you over this hurdle while minimizing your expenditure. I provide:
 
  • System planning
  • Integration of network hardware and software
  • I.T. strategy for growth of your enterprise

 

In most cases, little or no new hardware need be purchased: instead, we rationalize the deployment of existing assets.
