Computer networks form the core around which any modern business revolves. The right network design can have a significant impact on how the business operates. Naturally, the “right network design" involves striking a balanced combination of network performance, redundancy, and security. However, these are not the only considerations to keep in mind, as business networks must also be designed within cost, time, and other business constraints. This requires a combination of technical know-how and business knowledge that allows your company to benefit from a holistic network setup.
Why Network Design Service Is Essential?
Network design involves setting up a suitable communication network that can be utilized to undertake daily as well as specialized business operations. It begins by understanding your technical as well as business requirements and implementing the same in hardware and software.
The entire process involves several steps such as network structure analysis, IP address allocation, hardware procurement, and finally, network implementation.
All this can be accomplished fairly easily for domestic networks that don’t involve so many variables. However, for large corporate networks that require the setting up of multifarious network services, the task can get immensely complicated.
Most often, the in-house IT team of a business doesn’t have the required technical expertise needed to perform such complex implementations. That’s when a Network Design Service such as TeckPath can be helpful. Our networking professionals can work to set up your business networks for successful operation.
How We Work
At TeckPath, we follow a comprehensive network design process that involves all stakeholders. Since we approach the network design problem as a stepwise task, we’ve been able to develop a general framework for network design.
Here are the steps that we follow when designing networks for corporates:
Identify Critical Requirements
Here, we start collecting information about critical business and technical requirements. These allow us to create well-defined targets for the rest of the design.
Analyze The Current Network State
Once we’ve settled on the requirements, the next step is to get an idea of the current state of the network. That way, our experts can understand which parts of the existing network to keep, and which to modify or replace.
Design The Network Topology
Next, we work on designing the architecture of the network in question. This involves both logical and physical components, such as running cabling, laying out racks, and determining the overall network topology.
Select The Software and Hardware
This step often takes place in tandem with the previous one. Here, we determine and procure the actual hardware and software components of the network.
Implement and Maintain
Finally, your business network is implemented and deployed. But the task doesn’t end there. Our team ensures regular checkups and maintenance for your new network.
Network Design Best Practices
Network design seems to be a straightforward process. The ground reality can actually get rather complicated, with several problems cropping up. We ensure these problems don’t plague your network by following a few network design best practices, such as:
The above allows us to act as your trustable network design partners. We also keep in mind all regulatory requirements and compliance rules when designing your networks. Whether it’s a cloud network or an on-premise one, you can expect only the best from us here at TeckPath.
