Client Summary Of Project

“In my 15+ years of experience in the field of IT, one of the most common challenges has been developing a strategic approach to
upgrading legacy network architecture and
security.  ATCOM Business Technology
Solutions has been instrumental in assisting with recommendations and implementing
policies for our LANs, WAN, Silos and Data Center solutions throughout our county.

ATCOM has employed suitable solutions which allowed “a single pane of glass”
topology via a seamless Meraki solution
system-wide.  This was a major undertaking
considering we have a small IT Staff and had to modify all rules in the existing firewall while considering all the 20 year old VLANSs and VPNs to configure the new solution.

We have also now chosen ATCOM as our VoIP phone system provider, which they won through an open bid process. We have
welcomed the continuous dedication,
expertise, skill and patience ATCOM has shown while delivering outstanding products, services and support for the county. I am pleased that ATCOM is helping us to solve network infrastructure, security best practices, Wi-Fi and phone system challenges facing our county with their enterprise solutions and
profession support services.”
