Wide Area Network Design and Implementation

As part of a long term, multi-year contract, Access Network Solutions provided strategic planning and Information Technology architecture services to United Water (Harrington Park, NJ), involving numerous components of their IT infrastructure.

Our staff helped develop a plan and design to connect United Water’s numerous water treatment plants, offices and facilities located throughout the country with a private Frame Relay wide area network. The WAN served as the foundation to implementing an integrated and consolidated e-mail system, allowing the sharing of databases and information and consolidating their multiple Internet connections into two large connections, resulting in considerable cost savings.

Access Network Solutions also re-designed the primary data center facility at their headquarters and upgraded the headquarter’s local area network to a fully-redundant Layer 3 Gigabit Ethernet backbone. In addition, our staff assisted in the design and upgrades to networks and computer systems located at the various facilities throughout the country.

In addition, Access Network Solutions designed and implemented a Network Management System, that provided real-time status and alerts for critical infrastructure components thought the network, along with collecting performance and trending data on network performance.
