It is not uncommon for networks to grow organically and haphazardly as increasingly heavier workloads are placed upon them. As networks grow, legacy configuration often remains, which may not comply with security mandates and best practice. This can result in degraded performance and compromised security.
A Network Health Check, delivered by LAN3 networking professionals, assesses the existing network for security issues (including use of telnet), switch performance, spanning tree configuration and best practice configurations. When the check is complete, a report is produced and shared with the customer. The report will include documentation of switch firmware, serial numbers, routing and routing redundancy configuration, spanning tree configuration and network topology, as well as highlighting any concerns.
A network health check involves an experienced LAN3 networking engineer visiting site. They will perform an in-depth review of the wired network, and subsequently suggest any configuration changes that would be beneficial. The engineer will review network typology, VLAN implementation, software versions and network access security.
LAN3 will carry out the health check and subsequently make recommendations to improve the health, security and performance of the network. LAN3 is equipped to perform a network health check on all major networking technologies.
LAN3 has designed and installed many hundreds of networks since 2008. The knowledge and experience we have gained enables us to advise our customers on all aspects of their network, from security and functionality to design and performance optimisation.
“Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue is a key emergency service with an accordingly complex network. I understand the importance of continually ensuring we remain optimised for functionality, security and performance and as such called upon the services of LAN3 to review our network. We were very impressed by their meticulous work, and their suggestions were well thought through and articulately communicated. I would not hesitate to recommend this service.”
Facing the prospect of a Civil Aviation Authority audit to assess their ability to manage disaster recovery, and realising they needed a more resilient network to better manage business continuity and reduce risk, KLM Engineering approached LAN3 for help.LEARN MORE
