Nothing can prepare your company to survive a catastrophic event better than detailed planning. Whether you lose a communications node to a failed redundant power source or the entire data center to fire, how quickly your company recovers depends on the foresight of the managers responsible for business continuity and disaster recovery planning.

AgilNetworks provides services that assist the responsible managers in planning for the unexpected. AgilNetworks can assist in any task from traffic management (preparing the network for the bombardment of orders and phone calls from a major sales initiative) to business continuity (the details of ensuring your entire customer care center and database administrators have transportation to the backup site the morning after your data center and customer care center was destroyed in a flash fire).

Project Management

When a manager is confronted with a project, resources are not always available from within the company. Specialization and dedication to the plan is paramount. In many instances projects are initiated to respond to specific requests that cannot be addressed within the organizations normal operating boundaries. You, as a manager, cannot always free a headcount to focus on what is sometimes a very visible and strategic task for the company.

AgilNetworks has positioned itself to assist companies in the timely and cost effective execution of those plans which require full time dedication and project management. AgilNetworks employs several certified project managers who are experienced in managing complex multi-million dollar projects. Each project manager has expertise specific to the telecommunications industry. AgilNetworks utilizes the principles defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI standards) to manage quality, risk, cost, time, human resources and procurement.

Network Design

Agil engineers are certified by multiple industry standards organizations. They are experts in IP network design, including virtual private network applications. They also maintain expert knowledge on IP based services such as VOIP. Agil is also skilled in more traditional service offerings such as ATM, Frame and traditional TDM protocols. Agil engineers are skilled in managing traffic, routing, capacity planning and access. AgilNetworks will work with customer engineers to define user requirements and design an efficient, state of the art, network which will meet the customer’s needs and budget.

Capacity Planning

Network access usually accounts for 80% of the cost of a network facility. Without effective planning for workload growth and change in throughput, network costs can run out of control and performance can be significantly reduced. While performance management enables the cost-effective management of the existing network, capacity planning ensures that your organization will understand how your changing workload must be accommodated in the future.

At the same time idle network resources represent cost. Provisioning for the future too soon can be a costly error. AgilNetworks employs several carrier certified network capacity planners that can model your network usage and apply trends to future growth. By utilizing trend analysis, network modeling and proven algorithms, AgilNetworks can optimize network utilization and plan for just in time provisioning, saving the unnecessary cost of access.

PBX Upgrades and Installation

Many organizations are asking the question “Does it pay to transition to an IP Based PBX”? The answer to that question is a complex one. Many factors, including your existing network foot print, calling patterns and return on investment play into the analysis.

AgilNetworks can evaluate the need to migrate, provide detailed technical analysis and vendor recommendations, along with a detailed return on investment analysis.

Once a decision is made, AgiNetworks can project manage the installation and provide Add Moves and Change support for the client.

Site Builds

Not every organization has the luxury of having a central office planner and HVAC engineer on staff to assist with the design and build of a new Data Center, Network Management Center or Call Center.

AgilNetworks has successfully built more than 750,000 square feet of Data Centers, Network Management sites and Call Centers. AgilNetworks employs both Central office planners and HVAC engineers to aid in the design of your center. In addition, AgilNetworks partners with a construction and engineering company and will act as the General Contractor on behalf of the customer.

Site Relocation

There are many reasons to relocate your datacenter and very seldom is it to improve network availability. As a Datacenter Manager you are tasked with realigning the network without visible impact to the users. This can be a daunting task.

AgilNetworks has packaged its services to make the move seamless to the user and as noninvasive as possible to the Datacenter Manager. Site moves include, Project Management, Site Design and Build, Real Estate Identification and Negotiation, Equipment and Furniture relocation as well as Network Configuration and Testing.

Technology Upgrades

IP transit is a buzz word around the enterprise network environment. But what does IP do for your business? What is MPLS and how does it affect VOIP? Is my frame relay network really outdated? What is convergence and can I take advantage of it? These are not easy questions to answer.
