Why Hiring Professionals is essential.
Setting up internal networks within a company is a very complex task that must be completed perfectly for the network to be functional at all. Professional care can ensure that the network is the ideal size for the building, with all the required functionality accessible from all the important areas. Additionally, the cables themselves must be kept clear of areas where they could prove an obstacle to foot traffic, which may require varying degrees of construction work. Finally, the very nature of a network requires a technician with very specialized and in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of said network – the installation of a network isn’t something that can be accomplished by a person with a diagram.
Active Communications Company Ltd. offers all the network cabling services a business could ever need, from start to finish. The following services offered will keep any company well informed and professionally cared for under all circumstances.
Site Survey and Consultation
An ideal network is neither too big nor too small: it is able to cover all the required areas without holes, and is not so big that it creates wasted resources. The specific functionality of the network should be considered as well, so everything from telephones to wireless Internet to internal servers and databases is provided. The cabling within the network must lie within the building so that the building remains structurally sound despite any required construction. Expansion forecasts should be accounted for along with the current size of the building. All of these varying factors must be covered within the eventual plans for the network.
Active Communications Company Ltd. does an entire site survey and consultation completely free of charge, and can work within limited budgets to provide a professional cabling plan custom suited to any need.
Networks are best when they are designed uniquely and specifically for the company in question, as explained above. The cables are one extremely important piece of this complex puzzle, but another vital part is how the system is meant to function when complete. Internal databases are hugely useful for many businesses, and this sort of functionality requires much more than Internet or telephone line hookups. No matter how complicated the project, Active Communications Company Ltd. is able to provide a solidly planned system structure and design which will suit its purpose exactly as intended.
Even when handled by trained professionals, networks – especially the larger ones – tend to be tricky. Active Communications Company Ltd. knows that it’s not acceptable for a company’s processes to be delayed because of unforeseeable kinks in the network. To prevent this problem, AACL offers a large testing facility in Orpington. Entire networks may be constructed and thoroughly tested on-site to ensure that they are perfectly functional and ready to go. Clients are always invited to attend testing so they can view and approve their network before it goes live.
Certification, Testing and Documentation
After the completed cabling has been installed, Active Communications Company Ltd. will ensure that the network meets industry standards and will provide certification of such. Comprehensive documentation of the cabling provided will be filed at ACCF and copies given to the client, so there’s never any doubt as to the expectations met.
ACCL offers relevant and useful training so that a new network may be used to its full potential. AV and Wi-Fi allow the client to directly connect with training agents in a professional environment, allowing maximum use to be made out of the network.
Support and Maintenance
Active Communications Company Ltd. has many different service options available to suit any budget and need. There are 4 basic levels of network support, divisions of which are accessible throughout the UK. These levels are as follows:
Level 1: Basic Support
This support covers the repair or replacement of any faulty equipment in most circumstances.
Level 2: On-Site Support
This level of support may be renewed annually through a contract, and means that a qualified ACCL network engineer will be on-site to deal with any problems no more than 8 business hours after the call is placed.
Level 3: Quick On-Site Support
Similarly to level 2 support, this support will normally have a qualified engineer on the premises within 4 business hours of making the call. This level of support is ideal for businesses which rely somewhat heavily on their networks.
Level 4: Fastest On-Site Support
For the business that simply can’t afford any significant lapse in the functionality of the network at any time, level 4 support is best. This support offers a 24-7 response from qualified engineers, who will be on-site and ready to resolve the issue within 2 hours of receiving the call
