Networking Design and Implementation

Your Network is the foundation that allows your electronic devices to communicate with one another. Whether this is your computer, phone, tablet, server, or website, your network is the heart and soul that connects everything together.

Most Small Businesses can use a simple network switch, a wireless access point, and some form of connection to the Internet. Some downtime is allowed if a network component fails as a quick trip to the computer store should solve the problem. The Enterprise Level Networks on the other hand have greater requirements. These include segmenting traffic, redundancy, failover, bandwidth shaping, load balancing, connecting disparate networks together though VPN's, etc. Security and Network design go hand and hand. Networks have to be designed with the security at the forefront so that the network and the devices connected to it are protected from both external and internal attacks.

IPv6 is the new Internet Protocol that will replace IPv4 (which is currently in use) over the coming years. Some countries are ahead of the curve in deploying IPv6, especially in Asia due to the lack of IP addresses in the IPv4 protcol. All of the IPv4 space available has been allocated and we are effectivly out of space. The IPv6 protocol was designed and completed back in the '90s to replace IPv4, but the deployment by Internet Service Providers, Companies, and Governments has been very slow. Now that we at the end of the road for IPv4, companies have suddenly started to take interest in deploying IPv6 in their networks and infrastructure. Recently, a lot of the major companies and governments (including the US government) have deployed IPv6. Open Innovations has already spent the years learning and deploying IPv6 for companies. Can you see the Dancing Turtle? Only IPv6 aware computers can see the turtle dancing.

Open Innovations has designed and implemented networks of various sizes, from the Enterprise Level to the Small Business level. We have the deep experience necessary to deploy your most complicated network. This includes the set up of routers, firewalls, switches, fibre channel, wireless, microwave, satellite, and virtual private networks, just to name a few.
