UPSTATEMENT

Network Overhaul to Support Rapid Growth

Brief

Upstatement looked to Davin Technology Group to manage the technology aspects of their new office expansion and deploy a high-density network to support their future growth and increasing bandwidth needs.

Overview

Upstatement moved their office from the Seaport District of Boston to the heart of Downtown. Shortly after moving into their new space, they identified significant capacity issues and bottlenecks within their existing network, resulting in bandwidth limitations, degraded network connectivity, and complete network outages.

With Upstatement's continued growth and plans to double the size of their office by expanding to an adjacent floor, they needed to invest in a network infrastructure that could support their growth and future bandwidth needs.

Upstatement looked to Davin Technology Group to manage the technology aspects of their new office expansion and deploy a high-density network to support their future growth and increasing bandwidth needs.

Solution

We began by assessing the existing network infrastructure and configuration to identify gaps and bottlenecks. Then met with Upstatement's leadership team to confirm our findings and gather additional requirements based on growth metrics and staff use cases.

After completing our assessment, we started the planning phase where our team met to design and develop a cost-effective solution that would meet all security, bandwidth, and network availability requirements.

The resulting configuration consisted of implementing two redundant high-speed internet connections, an industry leading security appliance, gigabyte ethernet network, and high-density 5GHz wireless network to support their growing bandwidth needs.

Results

We deployed and migrated Upstatement to their network infrastructure in anticipation of their move-in date. Upon deployment of Upstatement's network, all pre-existing connectivity issues and bottlenecks were eliminated resulting in seamless connectivity throughout the entire space.

"Davin Technology Group really listened to our needs and provided us with an ideal solution for our IT needs. As a website design firm, we need a reliable network. They fixed our old network and helped keep things stable (and fast!) as our business grew. Now IT issues don't keep me up at night - I know DTG has us covered."
