Local Area Networks (LAN)
From small physical areas to large campus environments, CORETX LANPort provides an effective Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructure for efficiently running a business' day to day communications services and particularly for the rollout and efficient use of VoIP services.
What is it?
CORETX LANPort is an effective LAN solution that can help businesses save money and increase employee productivity. CORETX realise that networks have more demands placed on them every day – to run more reliably, faster, to scale easily and to support new users and applications, all at a lower cost of ownership.
With over 10 years' experience of providing converged networks with carrier-class reliability, our LANPort solution provides the necessary switching environment to support a variety of applications from VoIP to Video.
Managed IP to the Desktop
CORETX offer a fully managed service that includes controlling the configuration, monitoring, and trouble shooting of a business' Local Area Network. This includes the provision of switches and cabling where required to ensure optimum performance and reduced workload for the IT team.
Our Local Area Networks are designed with best practice in mind and use industry recognised design models for high availability and fast convergence for the hierarchical layers of the Enterprise Campus Architecture. Redundancy is built into the design along with deterministic traffic paths to ensure maximum network uptime and business continuity.
Cabling can be an issue for customer's LAN's, particularly the cabling of new build offices or sites where existing cabling is not fit for purpose. We work with a number of partners and can take over the management of office cabling removing another burden from the customer's IT team.
The planning phase of the CORETX LANPort solution is critical in identifying the requirements for the hardware deployed to run the network. A range of technologies are available to deliver High Availability, Redundancy, Quality of Service, Power over Ethernet, Load Balancing, Layer 1 connectivity, and Security.
Identification of the technical requirements and the planned roadmap are the key driver for hardware selection. Hardware selection will always be a result of planning and never a driver for the design. Our LANPort solution will not accommodate a manufacturer or model, but rather require it as a result of the features and technologies the hardware can offer.
Quality of Service (QoS)
The Local Area Network usually has multiple possible congestion points where important traffic maybe dropped without QoS. QoS helps to manage this oversubscription and speed- transitions in the design. A CORETX supplied LAN ensures that Class of Service may be applied to packets at the very edge of the network, giving greater control of QoS.
Energy and Space Efficient
Proven lower power consumption reduces the requirement for cooling and ultimately, reducing costs. Our power consumption calculator can compare your current offering to the proposed CORETX solution. This provides a valuable addition to the ROI evaluation.
CORETX can provide full 24/7 monitoring, management and support of the LAN infrastructure to ensure optimum performance across the network. For more general support issues, having access to the LAN equipment enables us to offer true end-to-end support for both data and voice traffic. Moves, Adds and Changes will also be carried out by the NOC. sFlow enabled CPE will allow advanced application layer monitoring through our AppFlow tool.
Maintenance and Support – Your Peace of Mind
CORETX offer a complete range of maintenance support agreements to protect and cover your network in the event of breakdown or failure, providing guaranteed fix hardware maintenance, with nationwide coverage and multi-vendor capabilities – reducing downtime to a minimum. This superior level of support is backed up by a spares inventory in excess of £4.5m and a two-hour spares delivery guarantee – giving you confidence that the network will be back up and running in no time.
- Secure – Service disruptions prevented and sensitive data protected through Denial of Service (DoS), with SPAM controlled through advanced firewall applications.
- Monitoring and Performance – CORETX help customers troubleshoot LAN performance, enabling them to reconfigure or upgrade as required.
- Legacy support – Support of legacy applications as well as new high bandwidth applications such as video
- Reduced TCO – Reduction in operational costs through pro-active support and Moves, Add's and Changes.
- Best practice – Reliable, fast and scalable with a comprehensive, end-to-end infrastructure.
An effective Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructure is essential for efficiently running an organisation's day to day communications services and particularly for the rollout and efficient use of VoIP services. When deployed successfully, an effective LAN can help you save money and increase employee productivity.
