Municipality with Network Difficulties

A local municipality with a population of more than 5,000 was experiencing slow and unreliable network traffic among its buildings located throughout the city. In addition, the city had no network documentation, which made managing and troubleshooting their network difficult and time consuming. Finally, the city had no disaster recovery or strategic IT plan in place.


thinkCSC Develops All-Encompassing Plan

thinkCSC performed an audit, which identified several serious issues with the city’s server, e-mail, firewall and backup recovery system. To improve security and efficiency, thinkCSC developed a strategic IT plan for the city and conducted an overhaul of their technology system. thinkCSC brought all servers, backup and email systems up-to-date.
