NWN helps you assess and reduce risk by utilizing technology assessments and proof of values to examine your environment and identify potential technology issues. We work with our customers to arm them with the knowledge they need to create a technology plan that works for them. Our technology expertise and strong partnerships with major manufacturers allows us to bring the following technology assessments to our customers:
Cisco’s Security Proof of Value (POV) assessment program is a consultative security assessment that identifies potential security risks and threats for end users. Offered through NWN, the program provides customers with a simplified solution to look at their security environment holistically without a large expense. As cybersecurity threats continue to expand, organizations must make sure their infrastructure is ready. Today, an attack will happen to your organization, its not a matter of if but when.
NWN’s Cloud Assessment drives decision making by removing the confusion and creating a place where relevant data on your environment is easily accessible. This assessment can be accomplished in as little as two weeks and offers discovery of, but not limited to, all on-premise assets, network bandwidth requirements, application/server dependency, and multiple public cloud vendor instance matching based on performance. NWN’s Cloud Technology Assessment provides you the actionable intelligence you need to make qualified decisions about your infrastructure environment whether it be on premise or cloud based.
What if there was a surefire way to plan for the future of your IT Infrastructure? What if you could save up to 30% on hardware? NWN will complete a Network Assessment to thoroughly highlight areas of concern. At the completion of the assessment we invite you to join our experts in a workshop to review the results in detail and discuss solutions. NWN will install the software, monitor and collect data for a few weeks, at no cost to you. NWN then compiles findings and recommendations for customers in a personalized master assessment report.
Wireless Site Survey (Paid Assessment)
NWN has extensive experience deploying wireless networks for our customers. The first step we take to plan for a wireless network is completing a wireless site survey. This survey allows us to assess the Radio Frequency (RF) behavior in a specific environment so we plan an optimal network for your specific needs. We help our customers ensure that their wireless needs are met. Whether its voice, video, or location-based services, we’ll design your wireless network with these unique properties in mind. We’ll help ensure access to your mission critical applications via a high-quality, high-performing, and low-latency wireless network.
Mobility has become “the go to” standard for enterprise connectivity today. As more and more devices are connecting to wireless networks, organizations are facing increased pressure to ensure the availability and performance of the network is enterprise grade. Many WLAN infrastructures that were built for “best effort” connectivity are significantly underperforming or failing completely with the increased number of end user devices. Overtime, it’s important to reassess your current WLAN infrastructure capacity and scalability. NWN’s WLAN Health Check will validate your WLAN Infrastructure and look at your available bandwidth, RF Interference, and security procedures.
NWN’s VSphere Technology Assessment is a best practice health check that gives you the visibility you need to proactively ensure service levels. Utilize the Intelligent Operational Dashboard to optimize resource usage, and manage your dynamic virtual and cloud environments. Instead of reacting to problems, you will be able to tackle them before they arise.
The Communication Solutions Health Check is an assessment of the health of your Cisco Unified Communications infrastructure to identify security, performance, and configuration problems before enhanced collaboration features are deployed. Misconfigured or under-performing network components can impact many critical operations such as service discovery, contact source searches, and presences information. The tools and guidance provided by NWN in this engagement are used to evaluate and assess your Unified Communications environment to determine what needs to be corrected, if anything, before adding additional collaboration services to your system.
