HBF offer comprehensive network designs / re-designs & design reviews on customer network infrastructures. May it be a pure Cisco based network or a multi vendor equipment based network, we have the expertise. At HBF we understand that many networks have grown historically and do not always follow best design practises.
HBF is one of the first companies who have Cisco Certified Design Experts (CCDE) consultants. We are able to provide Cisco Design Consultancy on small to very large Cisco IP Networks.
Our Cisco IP Design Consultants will audit your network infrastructure and will advise you on where upgrades would be advisable, where bottlenecks are or are likely to be in the future, and where the network's security is at risk. Our CCIE consultants will produce a design review document to reflect on high availability, reliability, resiliance, security, performance and manageability.
Our Cisco CCDE Support Services can contain the following:
- Layer 2 Design (Spanning Tree, Trunking, Ether Channels etc.)
- Layer 3 Design (IP Design, Routing Protocols, First Hop redundancy etc.)
- High Availability (HA) at Layer 2 & Layer 3
- Design for network growth
- Consolidation considerations
- VoIP readiness (Quality of Service)
- Management (SNMP, RMON, Netflow, Syslog etc.)
Many customers want to utilize latest technologies such as Voice over IP and Multimedia conferencing, however many legacy networks have limited support for Rich Media. Our Cisco Consultancy services assist you in the choice of new hardware where needed, appropriate Quality of Service implementations and all necessary steps to converge your data and voice infrastructures into a single network.
