Bird Rock Systems proposed a comprehensive network assessment of each site to identify necessary equipment and architectural changes that will enable each location to support state of the art IT in areas of voice, data and video. Our advanced network engineering team was able to successfully complete the assessment within the timeline we projected which supported the customer’s urgent timeframe.
Our assessment was divided into 3 phases: Discovery, Inventory and Performance. In these phases, we reviewed the following areas:
We reviewed all switches routers and firewalls with an emphasis on the core and distribution. Routing protocols, VLANs and subnets were reviewed to make architecture recommendations for best practices as they apply to route summarization and the size of subnets. Network architecture was reviewed to make recommendations to enable restriction of traffic protecting sensitive areas.
By the end of our engagement we had a clear understanding of the environment and produced an assessment report with supporting reference material and an executive summary of our recommendations.
