Network Optimisation is the process of extracting the maximum benefit from your network whilst reducing your operating costs. This is achieved via process mapping, virtualisation, infrastructure auditing, network design, visualisation, WAN acceleration, Security, Voice readiness testing and application performance management.
One of the major challenges for any network administrator is managing power, space as well as monitoring and maintaining the network. Every physical device has specific requirements which must be met, however there is finite rack space, power draw must be minimised to reduce operating costs.
Resiliency is another significant area to be addressed. In order to maintain availability and meet SLAs, critical systems should have backup systems which can instantly take over should a failure occur.
