Can you answer the following questions?
- Which server is running DHCP?
- Are your network computer closets connected by fiber or copper?
- How many computers are running Windows XP?
- How much memory is in your database server?
If the answers don't come quickly or at all, and if you can't find them easily, you probably need professional IT assistance. The skilled professionals at Kiesling Associates LLP can help you answer these questions and more.
Consider this scenario:
Your corporation is thinking of implementing IP telephony, and you need to know if your current infrastructure can support this new technology. Network upgrades were made a few years ago, but Bob, the staff member responsible for documenting the changes recently, left the company and moved to Florida. You can't find the documentation (he forgot to record a few changes, anyway) - and you can't find Bob.
Computer networks evolve to meet the growing needs of companies. Regular upgrades are a reality, and documenting these changes is critical. Your company must have an accurate and current network document at the appropriate person's disposal. Then, when it's time to upgrade again, you'll have the information you need to proceed timely and cost-efficiently.
If you don't have your network documented, call the IT team at Kiesling. We can produce a complete map of your network and assist you in system documentation as future changes are made.
