Our Solution

  • Remove old network gear in its entirety and install new ‘affordable’ network gear
  • Utilize old cabling infrastructure by re-terminating problem connections with newer and more advanced components to keep costs down
  • Combine legacy physical networks lines into dynamic aggregate groups for fault tolerance, failover and load balancing from end to end and reduce single points of failure
  • Leverage IP technologies to distribute Audio and Video over the network instead of pulling additional cabling for each use
  • Increase available backbone network speeds to 20Gbit for smaller sites and 40Gbit for larger sites with plenty of headroom for future network needs and growth
  • Apply Quality of Service(QOS) to every data packet on the network from end to end to create a single plug-n-play ‘Converged Network’ that will support
    • Line Speed Content Transfer
