Network Audit and Discovery

We're expert network engineers with many years of experience in different environments.

Network audit and discovery

We’ve undertaken many network audits over the years, often as the start of a larger piece of work like a migration or a new network design. There are a number of reasons that clients may need an audit:

  • Outdated inventories and documentation

  • Due diligence prior to mergers and acquisitions

  • Major upgrades

  • Fault and incident investigation

  • Standards compliance

Network documentation and inventory can get out of date quickly. Our expert engineers know what data is needed for effective documentation, particularly around standards compliance. And thorough analysis and documentation after an acquisition or a meger is a must in order to plan rationalisation and efficiency gains.

An audit may cover a number of areas:

  • Network bottlenecks

  • Loop-free topologies and technologies

  • Security assessment

  • Traffic segregation

  • Redundancy and resilience

  • Out-of-band access

  • Traffic monitoring

  • Latency and QoS

  • IPv6 readyness

  • Routing security and policy

  • BGP peering and route optimisation
