We can assess your current infrastructure and recommend an appropriate upgrade path. We perform a process called validation – this will test your existing cabling and network points to see if they can cope with Gigabit speeds (and above) without any issues. In some cases, the existing wiring may need replacing. However, in many cases, we have been able to upgrade the networking hardware on the server side, and install new Ethernet sockets on either end of the existing cabling. Everything will be certified to ensure that the wiring is performing at the speeds that the hardware is meant to be running at, without packet loss or other connectivity issues.
Using our expertise in this area, we will assess your requirements and will be able to provide you a quote to install the most cost-effective solution. We will also provide for you a secondary quote on a solution that will surpass your requirements and future-proof your network if you were ever to upgrade your I.T. systems. Sometimes the cost difference will not be vastly greater, and it may be better to put a higher end infrastructure in place, in preparation for higher speed data networks that you may wish to employ in the future with newer equipment. We will outline the pros and cons for you in a simple fashion so you can make an informed decision on the future and direction of your I.T. infrastructure.
