Business level internet access
The business community is as demanding as the gaming community when it comes to expectations on how the Internet needs to perform. Some businesses have no time for latency issues, literally, especially where global financial transactions are concerned within a multi-currency trading environment. There are many different Internet options available and each with their own unique quirks, advantages and challenges.
Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a packet-forwarding technology which uses labels in order to make data forwarding decisions. It is the current industry standard for wide area networks (WAN) connectivity. SICL manages its own MPLS enabled core network that can support a large number of customers over geographically diverse locations.
A Local Area Network (LAN) describes interconnected computers, printers and other endpoints in relatively close proximity - usually a building or campus. SICL began as a cabling company and now specialises in the configuration and support of network hardware that enables our connected clients to scale with growth.
The Software-Defined Wide Area Network delivers intelligence to WAN routing. A centralised control and management portal provides a mechanism to define rules and policies for optimised forwarding over the virtual WAN. SD-WAN does not replace existing carrier transports (Internet, MPLS and cellular) rather it is an intelligent overlay and is transport agnostic. SICL’s experience with all WAN technologies promotes recognised connectivity assurance.
A Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) implements a flexible data communication system frequently augmenting rather than replacing a wired LAN within a building or campus. WLANs use radio frequencies to transmit and receive data over the air which provides users the freedom to move around the coverage area. SICL has demonstrable experience of end-to-end WLAN implementations from site surveys through to controller or Cloud managed solutions.
Whether you require traditional server and storage architecture, or assistance with your private/hybrid cloud, SICL are no strangers to working with legacy infrastructure or pioneering transformational architecture projects. We also know that compute performance and storage capacity are only small pieces of the puzzle. SICL can help you get the complete picture by fitting the missing security, management, and resilience sections into place.
With a huge range of devices now available to end-users for their day to day activity, our fanatical front-line service team have become adept at supporting an ever-expanding list of laptops, desktops, thin-terminals, smartphones, and tablets. SICL can respond quickly to device issues, and using our exceptional vendor relationships we can expedite the replacement or repair of faulty and broken tech. Using our advanced remote setup and deployment tools you don’t need to jump through hoops to get back down to business.
Full Network Deployments
We have never been afraid of a blank sheet of paper. We love a ground-upwards project and the wealth of knowledge we can bring along with the latest tech ensures a fully pragmatic and future-proof approach. There is literally no size of network project that would intimidate us and you can only achieve this level of confidence and epic micro-planning after decades of experience.
The key to project management is realism in planning with exceptional communication at every step. Whether you are approaching your project in sprints within an agile framework or if you have a distinctly linear requirement, good project management is the lifeblood of our own operation. Large scale network architecture requires a cohesive team approach and therefore it makes sense for your IT Services partner to conduct your project management, potentially reducing the disruptive effects of any internal roadblocks you may have. Your PM, engineers, vendor ordering and implementation are all covered under a team who work closely together daily and have done for years.
Training & Certification
It is a natural part of our function to train your employees during and following implementation. We are fully accredited in all areas of highly complex technology solutions with a near agnostic approach to those technologies which gives us a flexibility and depth of knowledge that you will struggle to find elsewhere. The biggest tech companies train our teams constantly and naturally, we are best placed to pass that knowledge on in the most effect manner possible. Let’s get you watertight
