          Network Assessments
          Is Your Network Up to Speed?

          Get Optimized with a Network Assessment

          PC Connection’s Network Assessment gives you a clear picture of your network infrastructure. If your organization is looking to upgrade or expand your network, the first step is to understand the capabilities and shortcomings of your existing network. We can help. PC Connection’s Network Assessment identifies equipment that needs to be upgraded and pinpoints performance issues such as bottlenecks. Once network issues are uncovered, we can provide remediation plans to fix the problems and optimize your network’s performance.


          How a Network Assessment Works

          PC Connection’s Network Assessment is the perfect way to identify network issues or to begin network infrastructure development, expansion, or upgrade discussions. It outlines the key issues that you need to address to ensure a successful implementation and growth.

          Our assessment helps you understand how your IT hardware and software work together. We begin by building a network map within Microsoft Visio that graphically depicts your network hardware layout. This will help you plan your network IT budget more effectively.

          The hardware and software lifecycle is analyzed and detailed inventory reports are produced. We summarize the devices with performance concerns so that you are able to quickly identify problem areas and bottlenecks. We then finalize the reports and make recommendations for improvements.


          Assessment Benefits

          • Our Network Assessment provides comprehensive documentation to give you an in-depth understanding of any issues that arise during the simulated traffic.
          • Your QoS configuration is detailed to provide performance analysis of your complete network.
          • You can establish a baseline and learn which areas of your infrastructure offer the best investments in order to achieve your desired network performance. Our assessment gives you the tools and information to optimize your network for real-time traffic.

          In Order to Optimize, You Must First Analyze

          To help you understand the bigger picture, a Network Assessment will:

          • Provide a network inventory analysis
          • Analyze network QoS performance
          • Identify network issues/concerns
          • Document the network and recommend a path for simulated traffic with a Visio topology drawing
          • Compile and correlate the data collected to provide extensive insight into the network and its performance


          What to Expect

          1. First there is a kickoff call to review documents and schedule your assessment.
          2. Next a Network Assessment appliance is shipped to your site and remotely installed.
          3. The assessment data is gathered for 5 days.
          4. Then an engineer validates the data.
          5. After the appliance is removed and returned, we generate your reports.
          6. Finally we prepare your deliverables and recommendation document and provide an executive review of the findings.
