Network Assessment

An outage situation is not the time to uncover issues with your network design, implementation, documentation or back-up or support process.  Assessments can be your canary in the coalmine, shedding light on risk areas and providing objective feedback to help smooth transitions between different areas of the network, owners and managers. Audits can also indicate where organizational policies or procedures may need additional review or validation.

CHR's Network Assessment provides a third party objective review of your organization's data, voice, video and wireless environments. We explore every aspect of your Network as a necessary component of maintaining a healthy network infrastructure. CHR provides an equipment and design assessment at every layer; Access (DSL, GPON, Active Ethernet), TDM and Optical transport (DWDM and SONET), layer 3 IP core and Internet peering, IT, Wireless and Voice.  The network assessment includes an inventory of the equipment (h/w and s/w) for the areas of the network we examine, indicating what items are up-to-date or obsolete and should be upgraded or replaced.  We also update your network diagrams to reflect the current layout of the network. A comprehensive evaluation of the overall Network Architecture is performed to ensure use of the latest design methodologies.  Device configurations are also reviewed to validate design criteria has been met.

After the Network Assessment is complete, you will receive a report and presentation that includes recommendations to address potential design, operational and performance gaps along with suggested cost avoidance measures.
