Networks need to be dynamic and evolve, keeping pace with the ever changing requirements of business. For busy internal IT support teams, defining network information or updating topology documentation may not a priority. However, this means it can be difficult to support a network and deliver new services without serious issues.
Networks First’s Health Checks are performed across a range of networking services, including Firewalls, telephony and the very network infrastructure itself. Initially our Professional Services team will determine your objectives and provide advice on how to achieve them.
We’ll provide a documented review of the current network status and recommend enhancements that are perceived as mandatory, highly desirable, or desirable. The resulting report provides both in-depth technical observations and metrics, as well as management level information and an executive summary, depending upon the type of assessment.
