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:
- 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.
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, En Pointe will deliver a comprehensive report covering LAN recommendations, support options, WAN recommendations, growth or downsizing plans, and security recommendations.
