Project Design & Implementation
Whether you’re planning, relocating, restructuring, or expanding a network, Walker can help you design the best network layout to give you the highest performance, security, and ease of maintenance possible. Upgrading your systems requires careful analysis to determine where your capital budget should be invested for maximum return. Walker will help you make the best decisions for your needs, providing written recommendations, prioritizations and justifications on what older equipment should be replaced, which upgrades provide top “bang for the buck”, and how to keep your systems operating at their peak levels. Both one-time upgrade projects and annual budget planning will benefit from our expertise.
Any major IT project should start with a complete Systems Documentation plan, which includes Wiring Diagrams, Logical network diagrams, traffic flow, inventory of hardware and software, and floor plans. Walker can help you avoid problems in security, performance, and other critical areas before the first cable is laid.
