  • 3. Data Network: Do I have a network plan? Do I have a router / firewall? Do I have a data switch? What applications and speeds do I need to push them out to the desktop PCs? Do I have PCs for my end users? Do I have a domain in place? Do I have file servers in place? Do I have backup devices? Where is my email stored?
  • 4. Telephone System: Do I have a system that I can move? Can it accommodate my new office needs? Will have growth? Is it worth while moving or buying a new system? Do I want any enhancements?
  • 5. Office Wiring & Office Cabling: Do I have a floorplan? Is there existing cabling and what is it certified for voice and/or data? If I am deploying data VoIP phones do I have single or dual data drops to each desk? Are my jacks and back room termination points labeled? Do I need new cabling? Is there room in the equipment room for new technology? Does the telephone service and data service terminate (or reside) in the same place?
  • 6. Building Management: Is your building open or closed? Is it fully open or closed in the basement (dmarc / netpop) where the dialtone comes in and open in the risers - if a multiple story building. Does your building require union laborers to pull cable? Is there specific requirements to perform work in the building (like pulling specific insurance or reserving freight elevator or putting our techs names at the front desk).
