Key Strengths

Network Management

Configuration & Installation

Network Design

For all types of applications and industry groups - from fully redundant, robust designs to simple but high performance networks for SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises). Particular strengths in campus style applications using fiber-optics - both Multi-Mode and Single-Mode fiber requirements.

Network performance analysis

Problem diagnosis - NDC has test equipment and LAN Analyser products available for these activities should problems arise.

Summary

NDC remains committed to the design and provision of networks which reflect the Customer's stated requirements rather than designs reflecting what vendors consider to be "the way the industry is moving". This means that Customers get maximum network performance without implementing "fad" technologies which:

  1. add significant cost, and
  2. may become obsolete

NDC considers that network design should include elements of pragmatism and real-world applicability in order to best serve the needs of the Customer.
