5 tips for planning a successful network infrastructure project
The network infrastructure is probably one of the least glamourous elements of a building project, but without it business’ IT and communication systems are pretty much redundant. According to Techopedia Network infrastructure is the “hardware and software resources of an entire network that enable network connectivity, communication, operations and management of an enterprise network. It provides the communication path and services between users, processes, applications, services and external networks/the internet.”
When implemented successfully the power of a well-designed network allows organisations to communicate securely and efficiently with anyone in the world.
Investment in a high quality infrastructure and professional networking cable installation will prevent slow performance and provide your business with optimal operational conditions. However taking on these projects can seem daunting so we asked Tas Kyriacou, our Business Development Director what tips he has for ensuring the success of a network infrastructure project:
- Scope out the project then break it down
It is vital to fully understand what the end client wants to achieve and then break it down into manageable mini projects.
- Have a clear methodology for the project
This might sound simple but many people dive straight in without thinking out each step and can get lost in the minefield.
- Set daily tasks and make sure they are met
Having daily targets helps to keep what may seem like and endless project on track.
- Keep records of all labelling and cabling infrastructure
This helps with handover and speeds up and corrective adjustments.
- Concise execution of testing and a thorough handover
Rigorous testing and handing over with a full explanation will limit call backs and increase user’s confidence in the network.
