Is Your Network Up to Speed?   Get a clear picture of your Network Infrastructure

 

  

 A Network Assessment gives you a detailed picture of your organization's current network status. Based on that information, network administrators can make their decisions. Annexus Technologies offer an in-depth analysis of your networks design, usage capacity and optimal performance characteristics. We'll tell you what needs to be done to make your network lag proof. The statistics we provide can help you in many ways, especially in efficiently managing your internal IT environment. 

 

Every network needs upgrades sooner or later. Our experts will assess your network to decide if it can support the latest upgrades or not. If not, alternative upgrades will be suggested. They'll also find out any hidden bottlenecks that are stopping your network from reaching its full potential. Once the analysis is complete, you'll recieve a detailed document highlighting all shortcomings and suggested improvements.
