Probing Questions

  • How important is network uptime to the success of your business? How is your business affected when important applications perform poorly or are offline altogether because of a network outage?
  • How confident are you that your network can support your business's growth as you add more employees and applications?
  • How safe is your business and customer information from network attacks, whether they originate from inside or outside your network? How confident are you in the level of security provided by your current unmanaged or smart switch?
  • How much more productive could your employees be if the network applications they use had more bandwidth and better performance? How confident are you that your network will provide the bandwidth and performance you will need over the next few years?
  • Have you been using piecemeal products to make minute upgrades to your network?
  • Do you want the ability to create separate environments for different users on your network?
  • Are you using unmanaged or smart switches? Would more insight into and control over the way data travels across your network improve the stability and performance of your applications?
  • Are you planning to deploy IP telephony or unified communication solutions? How would you benefit from an infrastructure designed to easily support and integrate these technologies? Have you considered the cost of rewiring power lines to accommodate the new technologies?
  • Are you in a retail environment that requires Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance?
