Networks & IT Systems
A network or IT system refers to the integration of multiple technologies and capabilities – including information and communications – in a single, optimized solution. Devices within these converged systems are connected by communications cabling or by wireless technology.
There are multiple approaches to connecting computers and communications – and just as many reasons to do so. These connections enable users on desktops, mobile, and other devices to share printers and computing resources; exchange files and data; and communicate via phone, video, and data.
TWD systems specialists are experienced and certified in top level data and telecommunications technologies and applications and have decades of proven, performance-based results with systems solutions that are tailored to our customers’ environments.
We can provide those same results for you and will help you plan, implement, maintain, and optimize reliable, secure systems based on your specific requirements – whether you need to support 10 users or 10,000.
Creating a Solid Infrastructure
The quality of your systems really comes down to performance. From data center solutions to cloud-based and virtualized environments, factors such as bandwidth, peak-hour traffic, routing protocol, and network survivability all contribute to or deteriorate performance, making proper design and planning vital.
Our first step in designing your solution is to understand the specifics of your environment. TWD specialists work closely with your key stakeholders as well as determine specifics such as the technologies that are deployed; each application’s communication signature – including bit-rate requirements, latency and jitter tolerance, and frequency of use by location; the number of users as well as their requirements for access and capabilities; and governance.
Based on this understanding of critical information, TWD applies our knowledge, experience, and broad resources to the construction of effective systems solutions that deliver on your requirements including:
- Unified Communications
- Cloud-based Virtualization Solutions
- IP Video Streaming/Digital Media Systems
- Enterprise Applications (Active Directory and Exchange)
- Storage Area Networks (SAN)
- Network Area Storage (NAS)
You can rely on TWD to design, implement, maintain, or optimize an effective systems solution for your organization. Built to support your business operations today, our forward-looking solutions also are designed to support you as your business expands – along with the technologies associated with that growth.
TWD builds networks with a focus on integrated capabilities as well as efficiencies that maximize the utilization of your existing infrastructure and that minimize operational and life-cycle costs through equipment and resource consolidation.
TWD Network & IT System Solutions Include:
TWD unified communications (UC) solutions integrate voice over IP (VoIP), Internet protocol-based video teleconference (IP VTC), and data into a converged, user-friendly platform that is completely scalable. Benefits correlate directly to savings in travel costs, efficiency enhancements, savings in disparate solutions, and a centralization of technology resources with an easy-to-use technology interface. TWD leverages our experienced team of data and VoIP engineers that are certified and trained on industry-leading vendors such as Cisco, and Microsoft, to deliver innovative on-premise and cloud-based UC and UCaaS solutions.
TWD cloud-based virtualized server solutions deliver data center solutions, applications, and services that focus on high availability and data replication to ensure that your network systems are accessible and survivable in the case of unforeseen events. Our cloud solutions are capable of 6-sigma deployment, meaning unplanned downtime is almost non-existent, productivity is maximized, and anytime-anywhere access for end users is maintained. In our high availability environments, our networked systems monitor for primary host outages and immediately transfer to secondary hosts, which can be located within the same data center, in the next town, or across the country. TWD certified engineers are proficient in the use of VMware vSphere 5, Microsoft Hyper-Visor, and ARCserve High Availability.
As a Microsoft Gold partner, TWD experts are trained and certified on Microsoft products. We leverage our partnership to deploy enterprise-wide Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange solutions using Microsoft best practices. Our Active Directory solutions provide Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) solutions for authentication, authorization, and accounting support for applications across the enterprise. We also develop single sign on (SSO) solutions for your applications. TWD is experienced in developing and implementing unified messaging solutions with Microsoft Exchange, and we apply our Cisco Unity experience to deliver voice messaging to your users’ desktops.
We build SAN and NAS management solutions to operate remotely, so you do not have to be near the data center to provision disk space. Our streamlined storage provisioning solution ensures that disk space can be allocated quickly, when needed. TWD works with you to plan out storage capacity, ensuring smooth operation through adequate usage. Data storage retention policies and design routines created by TWD engineering staff facilitate SAN storage best practices and desktop storage administration. Procedures are developed, implemented, and maintained for storage change management, availability management, backup management, and incident management.
TWD engineers and deploys digital media services solutions with technologies from leading vendors that utilize Internet protocol (IP) video streaming to provide relevant information to users, for example, with news feeds and streaming video of important announcements over public and/or executive-level communications networks. Changes to the IP signs can be made on the fly, so emergency announcements can be made without delay.
TWD has developed many cutting-edge solutions for our customers – a result of our deep experience, technology proficiency, and forward-thinking engineers. Our team is certified on Cisco products with certifications including CCIE, CCNP, CCNA, and CCDA. We have built converged network environments that include data, voice, and video as well as SAN.
