Why Do a Network Assessment?

 

FourNetworks is a solution based technology company. Solutions come from a complete understanding of your technology and business environment. A FourNetworks' Network Assessment will seek to examine and document key components of your environment. Working with your staff we will collect data on the current network, review your practices and policies with members of your staff, and compare the findings with industry accepted best practices. We will gather and analyze your business requirements for your next generation network.

 

Upon completion of our assessment we will present documentation related to our observations and findings and make recommendations where appropriate. A color coded technical review matrix is prepared for you to see the good and not so good we find. 

Through the interaction between our staff, Eastern hopes to become your "Trusted Partner" for technology.
