What we do...

Engineering and implementation of cost-effective, high-performance networked systems in a secure Internet-connected environment for all normal business applications. Expert Unix and Windows system administration. Low cost business and database oriented application development and support. We can help you securely connect to the Internet at optimum price/performance as well as helping get your domain name registered and working properly and help you establish your web presence along with spam-filtered email services. Using these basics as a service delivery platform, we can custom engineer solutions to meet almost any business need and then we can help you connect remote sites to your business or your home using inexpensive public domain VPN technology or well known proprietary solutions. A range of firewall technology in our inventory also allows us to provide high-performance security solutions for most any site. Carefully designed and implemented infrastructure and basic services are key to trouble-free operations. Download our whitepaper "Competitive Advantage in the New Economy" for more information.

How we do it...

Although we have access to the normal proprietary solution sets, we specialize in standards-based, open-source software solutions to your business problems. We use Linux and other public domain software solutions to quickly solve business problems and fill stringent computing requirements in a low-cost yet reliable and standards-based way that will integrate well with existing systems you may have. We also adhere to industry standards specified in ANSI/TIA/EIA 568A/B and the various Anixter Category Levels with our cabling solutions. Adherence to standards ensures that the solutions we provide will integrate well with those products that you may already have as well as those products that you may obtain in the future.
