Network Audit Services

Networks often evolve and grow over time as your company develops and it can be difficult to maintain a full understanding of your system, the equipment you have and how it is configured, particularly in the face of staff turnover and changing technologies.

Our expert engineers can perform network audit services to help you to understand and optimise your current infrastructure to ensure you are getting maximum performance out of your system. Our experience and market visibility enables us to recommend best practices and state-of-the-art technologies from across your industry to help you achieve a strong and competitive infrastructure.

Our network audit services are also extremely flexible and completely customisable to your requirements.

Wireless survey

A wireless audit is a vital element of a new wireless deployment as it identifies the quantity and location of the access points required to ensure good coverage for all users and minimise the risk of 'dead spots' which impact user experience.

  • Receive a heat map of your current network performance and identify any weak spots
  • Identify the number and location of wireless access points needed for required coverage
  • Save money by eliminating unnecessary access points
  • Minimise the risk of 'dead spots'
  • Ensure maximum user experience and facilitate BYOD and UYOD initiatives

Estate management

An estate management audit allows you to gain a full understanding of your current environment and existing assets in order to accurately plan migration, optimisation and implementation requirements.

  • Gain a full understanding of your current environment and identify any areas for improvement
  • Receive an asset register, full network diagrams and documentation
  • Identify any outdated software or incorrect deployments
  • Define migration and implementation requirements
  • Ensure up-to-date best practices are used throughout your system
  • Ensure accurate documentation for all future team members

Environmental assessment

An environmental assessment identifies existing data centre and cooling power usage and provides recommendations to optimise your uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs).

  • Establish current run-time on UPSs
  • Assess your battery lifecycle to determine those still within their useful life and those which should be replaced
  • Assess the power draw on your equipment
  • Ensure your UPS output is enough to fully power your servers
