The team and what we do
We are an Edinburgh-based team of seven IT networking people, who decided they liked each other enough to work together for the long haul. When we say long haul, it’s only been 4 years… but what a 4 years!
We’re not sure if we could have fitted in more, especially this last year, but we’ve had a lot of fun getting stuck in. And not just in to fiddling around with computer networks – we’ve dragged our heads out of the tech and got out and talked to folk, both through social media and (gulp!) face-to-face, through our now regular Edinburgh Network Symposium event. We also found that it wasn’t enough to be technical and keen to help – the wider market demanded we be ISO compliant… so we complied, and are now ISO 9001, 14001 & 27001 certified.
Forgetting the numerous “thousands” of ISO certs for a minute, we haven’t let paperwork change us – we’re still the same passionate geeks as we always were. Most of the team have been in ICT for over 20 years, and we haven’t even begun to get bored. Ian, the founder and MD, is the oldest (although he hides it well) and most experienced, having got into technology in the late 80s with a role in the RAF. The rest of us ran into Ian over the years as customers, colleagues and suppliers, and ending up as friends sooner or later!
Did we mention we’re passionate about ICT networking? We really are, and think we have had this validated by one of our customers. The Edinburgh Academy has just entered a second year of working with us as their network consultants. That trust in us and what we do, and the chance to work together on projects to come, has been the best news in 2018 so far.
Your network partner
What we can do to help is to be your network partner; taking as much or as little responsibility for your network as you need.
We don’t stride in and demand full control of the devices, or insist that you throw away any kit not to our taste. Instead, we advise on how to scale and improve your network, based on design best practices. We can then implement those changes, or if you like, show you where to start, so you can get stuck in yourself.
Finally, if you don’t need a partner but still want to bounce ideas off someone, call or message us for a free opinion! We love giving out our 2 pence on networking trends like Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and Software Defined Networking (SDN), and of course we could bend your ear with the “cloud” all day if you like! However, if you’d like to talk about basic networking from scratch, we’re with you too. We’ve been there since nearly the beginning, and getting you up to speed would be a pleasure.
