How Convergence Group can help
Our professional services are essentially divided into two areas; consultancy based planning services and delivery based services.
All network solutions supplied by Convergence Group include full, proactive network support. We manage your network connections and hardware devices using our web enabled management software. That means we can detect early, potential connection and hardware problems. SMS or email alerts are triggered as soon as any problem is detected. As customers have full view of their network via our NetView tool, they have the ability, in real time, to see how effective we are as their network partner.
With your network design agreed, it is time to select the best fit technologies from the right suppliers. We have close relationships with all major technology vendors providing the latest data networking and IP products and services from a host of different suppliers, all under one roof.
We are confident that we can build a cost effective, flexible solution to meet your needs.
Capacity planning is all about understanding exactly what your business needs are today and where you plan to take your business over the next 3 to 5 years. How many offices, suppliers, data centres will you need to connect? Where are they and what applications are being used and considered for the future? How much data do you need to back up and plan to back up going forward? Will you need to support a defined disaster recovery policy? These are just some of the questions we will address. The answers will help us start building your network infrastructure capacity roadmap and network design.
Our network health check will help you understand how your current IT infrastructure is performing. We will conduct network and firewall audits to understand where problems are occurring and where improvements need to be made to enable your business to function more effectively.
Once we have completed network health checks and the capacity planning process, the next step is to design your new network. This involves mapping out the detailed architecture of the network infrastructure in line with an agreed strategy.
The second phase is our delivery based services. Our team will continue to monitor and assess you circuits and proactively provide you with technology and network infrastructure updates. This way you can be sure that you have the best circuits for you at the best value price. The different elements of this phase are:
