Network Performance

NETWORK PERFORMANCE

Poor application performance is painful for both your business and for your employees. If problems persist your operational productivity, efficiency and employee confidence in IT will all be affected. People instinctively blame the “network” though in fact issues can be caused by changes to applications or network infrastructure, traffic spikes, security compromises and rogue applications. This makes it very difficult to find the root cause and implement a solution unless you are equipped with the right network testing, monitoring, optimisation and management tools.

No two organisations will have the same network infrastructure demands, so we make it our business to understand your network and objectives before we make any recommendations. We like to work with our customers to establish exactly what issues led to a failure or performance investigation and then design a solution that meets not only your immediate, but  future operational needs. This might be a simple product investment, an infrastructure upgrade or the option of a managed service.

Effective IT is not necessarily state-of-the-art and we only use proven technologies, many of which we have integrated into our own IT infrastructure, to underpin the wired and cloud services we deliver and manage for our customers. In addition to hardware and software solutions, we also offer expert consultancy and skilled support services, ensuring that you are supported before, during and after sale.

NETWORK TESTING

Enterprise network managers are expected to deliver great application performance, whilst the network undergoes continual updates and upgrades. Unfortunately, whether applications will continue to perform adequately after a change is often left to chance. To avoid disrupting users and customers, network and test teams need to qualify the network, assess performance, and predict the quality of experience before changes are made or rolling out new applications. We’ve selected a set of tools that allow teams to build multiple “what-if” scenarios to ensure critical applications perform as needed prior to roll-out so you can avoid any unpleasant surprises.

NETWORK VISIBILITY

Enterprise networks are dealing with more data than ever before, which when combined with the meteoric rise of encrypted traffic can easily create ‘blind spots’ on your network. The challenge for network visibility tools is to supply an array of security and monitoring tools with access to network data without sacrificing performance. We have chosen tools that provide real-time, end-to-end visibility, insight and security into physical, virtual, SDN and NFV networks, delivering the control, coverage and performance in a seamless fashion to protect and improve crucial networking, data centre and cloud business assets.

NETWORK MONITORING

Network monitoring tools are a crucial part of a network manager’s toolbox for troubleshooting network issues. Without proper network monitoring tools, it is impossible to know what’s happening on your network. Cloud-based service deployments, complex multi-tier applications, remote employees, and customer expectations of anytime, anywhere availability of IT services can challenge performance monitoring visibility. We’ve partnered with vendors that help IT teams overcome these challenges and effectively manage and optimise services, both on-premises and within a cloud or hybrid IT environment.

NETWORK OPTIMISATION

Great performance shouldn’t be limited to certain applications, or certain users, or certain times of the day. To get around this problem some organisations provision more bandwidth under the false assumption that it will solve their QoS issues. However there is a better way. We have selected network optimisation tools that dramatically improve the performance of virtually all applications and workflows, improve user experience, and reduce bandwidth costs with advanced caching, acceleration, and network QoS capabilities.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Great technology can have a transformational effect on your business and make poor performance a thing of the past. However, it’s impossible for your IT team to be experts in every technology. That’s why many of our clients rely on us to provide wrap around services and after-sales support for the products we sell. Our consultants work on a wide variety of projects which gives them extensive experience and a thorough understanding of industry best practice. It’s this wealth of knowledge that they bring to your project team, ensuring you achieve success.
