Network Infrastructure solutions in Qatar
The modern Network Campus has significantly evolved in recent years. The traditional layered network with Cleary defined boundaries between LAN, SD-WAN, Wi-Fi, Access Control, and Visibility is blending into something that resembles more of a modern data center. Think of it as a stitched fabric that stretches across and unifies these traditionally siloed components.
With that in mind, the design of any new or refreshed network takes on a different discussion. The focus shifts from ports and speeds to user mobility, site-to-site consistency, end to end security while maintaining users’ ability to auto-register their own devices onto the network. All the while ensuring your security risk remains intact.
Our team is trained to design, setup and install the following comprehensive solutions:
- LAN and WAN infrastructure
- WAN Optimization
- Enterprise Wireless
- Workforce Mobility
- Virtualization Technologies
- Cloud Computing
- Enterprise Storage
- Next-Generation Firewall, Intrusion System
- DDoS, Web Application Firewall
- 2-Factor Authentication
- Secure Remote Access (IPsec, SSL)
- Application Delivery Controllers (Load Balancers), Global Server Load Balancing
Due to the proliferation of Wi-Fi and security challenges associated, the first thing we look at from a design standpoint is “what type of experience and mobility should your users have?” That starts building the network fabric foundation as it provides a clear direction to what components are relevant. The discussion then shifts towards integrating the plan to the exiting environment commonly referred to as “brownfield.” During this coexistence period, the user experience and security must remain intact as any disruption will magnify across the number of users.
To avoid this, we map out the scenarios in a “war games” format and run them through a test environment to document and remediate. Having increased confidence in the expected outcome, the new platform(s) rollout can be swift and non-disruptive. Registering the rollout and using a repeatable process ensures consistency from site to site. The extensive native monitoring capabilities of the new campus fabric confirms the success and highlight any anomalies not accounted for. We can then build custom dashboards and alerts for faster remediation times. An extensive test plan is separately carried out to ensure that Network Access Control is universal in its application and does not impact worker mobility.
Due to the various moving components fully integrated into a single platform, the fabric’s health must be reviewed regularly. We assist your team in identifying key areas of focus while bringing them up to speed on the platform’s roadmap. This allows for proactive planning for software upgrades and new feature rollouts. This quarterly review enables us to perform capacity planning for future considerations based on predicted business growth and platform utilization across the entire fabric. Each quarterly review also consists of a roadmap breakdown bespoke to your environment with a recommendation of which platform version and features are working exploring further.
