Network Design

Network Design

Modern organizations depend on IT infrastructure to support computing and communications needs. Without the use of networked file support, e. mail, or instant messaging services, many companies grind to a halt. This can be devastating for a company of any size. At ACC, we know that your business may depend on sending a timely e. mail or access information in a timely manner. That’s why we design and build secure, streamlined networks that will help ensure the success and longevity of your business. Whether you’re looking to start from scratch or thinking about changing providers, ACC is flexible enough to meet your needs and take you to the next level.

Our Network Design Process

As with many processes that deal with Information Technology, network design is both an iterative process and a customizable one. Each phase of the process is used as a building block for the next phase, meaning your network becomes ever more reliable and secure. We plan for your network based on some of the following criteria:

  • Your Business Plan: In order to design and manage the perfect communications network, we need to know what your business plans to do, including the services you plan to provide, the software you plan to support or use, and the rate at which you plan to grow.
  • Sourcing of IT Assets: Your overall IT infrastructure will play a role in determining the overall size and strength of your network design. If you need to source servers or IT professionals, that is factored into the network design.
  • Short Term vs. Long Term Network Planning: Networks that grow without a plan can become sprawling and ungainly—meaning they can become difficult to use and to manage. Having a defined short term and long term network plan helps your network grow in an organized, cohesive way.

The overall network design process will depend on you and your business needs, including any custom solutions that you may require.

Designing Networks to Meet Your Needs

Modern information and communications networks are required to do a lot of heavy lifting for your organization. In many ways, these networks are even more important to your business than the brick and mortar that house your company. A well designed network will take into account when, where, and how your organization uses information. A network designed by ACC is one that will support your computing and communications needs in the short term and the long term, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
