Thank-You For Stopping by Westgate Networks.

Best Networking Value In Boston | Guarnteed!

 

westgate networksFor 2020 and beyond there will be a seismic shift in computer networking.  Your network service specialist must understand networking technology and associated next generation management tools, and then assess whether they can be applied to the benefit of their client’s networks.

 

Additional issues can also arise in network-intensive businesses and more mature domestic consumers, both of whom are moving their data and IT services into the cloud.  At Westgate Networks, we therefore understand the need to manage data more efficiently.

 

By recognizing the shifting demands placed on network capacity by timeframe and location, Westgate Networks dramatically improves its client’s ability to efficiently manage capacity, expanding it to match actual demands, rather than more generic capacity needs. But this requires a detailed routing framework, which is where the experience and technical abilities at Westgate Networks will prove to provide our clients with the best and most modern solutions in Boston.

IT & Networking for Business

Business networks are going through a global modernization stratagy.  As technologists modernize their IT infrastructure, they face a host of obstacles, including legacy infrastructure, poor system integration and teams whose programming skills aren’t up to snuff.  To create a modern and responsive infrastructure, IT teams have virtualized data center infrastructure, from servers to storage to networking. Combined with analytics, virtualization helps the network stand up to new demands.  I can help you with that.

Routing & Switching

When building a new business network, or expanding your present system, knowledge of the various protocols, such as RIP, IGRP, OSPF, EIGRP and IS-IS–to name a few, can bring rise to many questions that need to be answered in order to move forward confidently.  Contact us to make sense out of  how the nodes and data packets work with these mulitple systems and your particular network.

Infrastructure Security

We have experience with the latest, next-generation Cisco security tools including ASA firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), web and email security appliances and data loss prevention designs.

Network Monitoring

Insuring your network is functioning at optimum efficiency is an essential part of system monitoring.  However, being aware of impending overload, crashing servers or devices and other internal threats are all important aspects of your network tomography.  We can help you with your route analytics to insure your downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.

Wide Area Network (WAN)

We’ve worked with many WAN service providers over the past decade.  Whether your needs are for a network to reach extensive geographical distances, or your technology needs to facilitate higher bandwidth applications via a backbone traversing a significant business campus, contact us to insure your system is the optimum configuration for your system requirements.

MY PROCESS

Consultation

After a discussion with my client, I attempt to relate their pain points back in simple networking related issues. I then define the process I recommend to go forward, either to ameliorate any problems that may exist, or to enhance and strengthen their current configuration.

Describe Goals

I establish a comprehensive work plan to resolve the problems and fullfil requirements ascertained during the consultation.  This may include repairing and/or replacing hardware components, correcting and improving software deficiencies, installing updates and patches, checking for any needed remapping, and presenting services that will improve functionality throughout the system as a whole.

Execute Work Plan

Upon the client’s full understanding and approval of the proposed work plan, I will execute the necessary repairs, installations and service enhancements to bring the service, network or computer systems to the established specifications.  I will continue to deploy diagnostics and observe any system deficiencies that may present.  I will advise the client of any observations that are currently or may in the future present obstacles to the continued health of the system as a whole. I only take action on shortcomings found subsequent to my agreement with the client after throughly describing the problem and discussing its future ramifications, if any. 

Follow Up

Computers and networks evolve at an incredible rate. In the future, this rate is only going to increase. Maintaining modern standards and protocols for hardware, software and firmware requires diligence and long term commitment. This is why taking care of my clients before during and after service is so important. Moreover, doing everything you can to do the job right, the first time–is the only way you can stay ahead of this incredibly sophisticated business.

It’s been a real pleasure working with Westgate Networks for several years now.  I think it was around 2014 when my very poorly setup network really began to fall apart.  When Sean arrived at my business he found a network barely running and in need of many upgraded components.  The system was a real mess, and Sean spent many hours and days just trying to get the mess worked out.  In what was to me a remarkably quick time-frame my system was complete, and running beautifully.  Sean has serviced my system and kept everything stress-free, in a very professional manner, for many years now.  I highly recommend Westgate Networks, and have sent many of my friends and clients his way.

My first encounter with Westgate Networks was in 2009 when I started a very small computer repair business in Brighton.  I felt silly in the beginning calling for help with such a simple thing as getting my computer router from Comcast to hook up to the internet.  Sean was incredibly helpful and never made me feel bad about the simplicity of my problem.  Over the years my business has grown significantly.  I finally have a pretty extensive “network” and Westgate Networks has kept my entire infrastructure, wireless connectivity, email and mobile systems growing and running smoothly, for about 10 years now.

I had a pretty unique problem for quite a while that I didn’t even know I needed a network specialist for.  To make a long story shot, my business emails were so messed up I couldn’t depend on sending or receiving them most of the time.  When Sean arrived to take care of my email problem, he discovered and explained how I needed a server (network) so my employees could communicate with not only me, but the outside world, as well.  I went full speed ahead with that idea, and could not have been more pleased with the outcome.  The added benefit of my files, projects and backups all being online and safe, has been a blessing.  I recommend Westgate Networks for just about anything, I’ve never called about a problem they couldn’t solve.
