We work with a range of partners to resell network performance applications where required.
Customer edge and provider edge config checks. Device configuration is subject to change during contract and is often not correct from day one. We analyse, update and recommend changes based on our findings.
Quality of service configuration checking. We examine Quality of Service configuration and report using plain English on how your network is setup to process data in the event of congestion.
Add, moves and change validation. You submit the change to Network Union, we validate and create the change request with the provider on your behalf.
Documentation updates. A detailed Visio document will be produced as part of our presales process. The document is securely stored and updated whenever a change is submitted.
New projects. Throughout your WAN contract, additional sites may be added or new applications launched. We ensure the impact to the WAN is considered and risks documented.
SLA exception reports. Within our monthly reports, we look to align issues and problems to your service provider SLA and process claims on your behalf.
