Network Information Management

Network information management features a number of disciplines including integration and deployment services, infrastructure design, voice and data integration, and operations and management support. Companies need to formulate strategies for flexible and secure networks to meet their current and future needs. This process involves vision, strategy, assessment, architecture and conceptual design services to ensure that the network infrastructure is appropriate and emerging network technologies are considered.

As part of this process, companies need to leverage existing systems to avoid downtime and ensure performance. Also, the network will need to leverage technologies from multiple vendors, which encompass many protocols, configurations, and connectivity requirements. The scenario also must include implementation planning, detailed logical and physical network design, rapid deployment and network rollouts, product installation and customization and operational services for network and cabling infrastructures.

Once up and running, network monitoring and management solutions must be implemented. Performance, availability, and security must constantly be considered as well as maximizing the costs of managing the network. Technologies also under consideration are firewall's, virtual private networking (VPN), IP Telephony, Voice over IP (VoIP) and converged data/voice/video networks.

InfoBuilders' consultants and professionals offer skills for companies that want to focus on their core business and bring on trained professionals to run the network for them. InfoBuilders' consultants offer a complete range of services from IP convergence, enhanced security and virtual private networks (VPN's), to distributed, edge-of-network server and storage computing environments and other next-generation network applications.
