Port Assessment Services
The use of data networks is dynamic with new users being provisioned and existing users moving location or leaving the company. These changes are often not fully documented or the redundant patch leads removed from the ports on the network equipment. This results in switches appearing to be fully utilised and can lead to new equipment being ordered unnecessarily.
The Port Assessment Service from Networks First identifies which LAN switch ports in your network are free and which ones are really in use.
Benefits of a Port Assessment
Where spare capacity is identified, the service facilitates the rationalisation and redeployment of existing network switches and will also help you plan for upgrades and technology refreshes. In addition you will be able to benefit from improved efficiency as it negates the requirement to purchase additional switches.
