WAN Design and Project Planning Services

Today's networks need to be fast, reliable and resilient. An organization only moves as fast as its data can move and its people can communicate and collaborate. Newer networking technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) have made connecting your organizations locations, people and data easier and more cost effective. Paragon Micros WAN assessment includes a complete and detailed inspection of the existing WAN infrastructure, hardware connectivity resiliency at each network layer, documentation of the current design and configuration of layer II and layer III protocols, identification of capacity and demand issues for enterprise priority applications, and other critical elements. Using this information to develop a GAP analysis, we will document a series of recommendations to achieve the desired “to be” state including a roadmap for acquiring and implementing the target enterprise wide area network architecture (WAN).
