PROFESSIONAL SYSTEM ENGINEERS

New technologies now enable you to dramatically improve your communications capabilities and lower your overall costs. To take advantage of these advancements you need a professional communication systems engineer—say, one with 7+ years of college and 30+ years of experience specializing in digital communications. Determining how to best merge these new technologies with your existing systems so as to maximize your ROI and meet your upcoming needs requires in-depth knowledge and experience across multiple disciplines: computer, telephone, mobility, and security systems; hardware, software, and networking; audio, electronics, power, transmission lines, and wireless … the list goes on. That’s where we come in.
Already have a savvy IT staff or resource?
Two ways our specialized expertise will still benefit you:
(1) We can update them on the very latest WAN and security technologies, whether released yesterday or due tomorrow.
(2) We can quote whatever solution they recommend and be VERY price competitive. Try us and see for yourself.

Other
As system engineers, we are often called upon to integrate our core products and services described above with other specialized needs. Following are some of the other areas we can help you with:
• Website and App design: We work with one of the world’s top designers, a $50M powerhouse, to coordinate their service with your WAN/LAN/mobility hardware and carrier services to ensure optimum compatibility.
• Documentation and training: We can document your system for users and administrators, and train them to perform ongoing operation and maintenance.
• Ancillary hardware and systems: We can help design and integrate systems such as paging, security, and manufacturing control.
• Legacy hardware and systems: Serial RS232/RS422? Analog modems? Stat muxes? Telephone key systems? Sometimes those older, bandwidth-efficient systems still have their place; we can help you integrate or transition your legacy components.
• Business analysis and strategy: Let us help you with the high level planning too, from short term budgeting to a 5-year IT expenditure plan
