IT Consulting / Network Planning

With more than 25 years of experience, the consulting experts at Total IT can provide you with the insight you need when establishing your IT footprint and planning for future growth.

Whether your business is downsizing or outgrowing your current location, purchasing or merging with another company, or is just being run inefficiently, our IT consulting and network planning team can help.

Often, the dollars are in the details.

We think about the little things when planning and evaluating Total IT solutions and provide detailed reports and recommendations to help you make informed decisions.  A small list of things we take into consideration when consulting:

  • Physical Location including NOC, wiring, furniture and lease requirements
  • Network Topology, Connectivity, Routing and Switching options
  • Software and Hardware requirements
  • Human Resources
  • Email and hosting needs
  • Remote Connectivity
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery
  • Network Security and Firewall
  • Virus, Malware and Spam Protection

Proper network evaluation and planning is essential to creating the most cost effective networking solution.

  • Number of locations
  • Number of workstations and servers
  • Human Resources needs
  • Type of software and databases
  • Amount of data for backup
  • Email volume
  • Web traffic
  • Remote Connectivity
  • Wireless

These are just a few concerns you have to address before buying any piece of equipment or signing any contract with a connectivity provider.  Just as important as evaluating your current needs, is planning for future needs.  All too often we see companies stuck in a contract with a service provider that cannot provide for the needs of a growing company.

Companies grow and shrink, make sure you plan accordingly so you aren’t bottle-necked or stuck with unneeded equipment and contracts.

Utilize our IT consulting and network planning team to establish an IT strategy custom tailored to your specific needs and get it right the first time.
