Communications Strategic Planning
Communications strategic planning ensures that your
communications systems will contribute to achieving business
goals in addition to serving as a cost-effective tool. In todays
communications dependant world, managing voice and data networks
is increasingly essential to the day-to-day conduct of business.
At WTCI, our planning consultants formulate long-range voice,
data, and video plans for clients in order to increase
competitive advantages and operating efficiency. Our clients
benefit highly from consultants who are experienced in the
solicitation and evaluation of end-user requirements pertaining
to goals/objectives and will receive recommendations for
long-term strategies and specific actions to enhance technical
operation and management efficiencies.
Network Disaster Recovery Planning
Communications services are key to company operations, but are
often overlooked in disaster and business recovery planning.
Fire, flood, network failures and other disasters can cripple
communications; business continuity is risked if communications
among key locations, outside suppliers, and customers are
severed. Organizations cannot assume that telephone company
networks have adequate backup redundancy. A disaster recovery
plan must focus on communications equipment and services as well
as data processing hardware and applications.
At WTCI, our consultants have developed a Network Contingency
Planning Methodology to assist our clients with disaster
recovery planning. This methodology is designed with the goals
of identifying business exposures inherent in network operations
and developing a system of controls to counter these
vulnerabilities. We emphasize business recovery, not just
Analysis of network vulnerabilities resulting from single
points of failure
Assessment of business impact from data and voice network
Analysis of recovery strategies to sustain acceptable
business activity level.
Development of contingency plans that document all network
procedures to minimize the duration of network outages and
restore critical applications.
