Maximize Infrastructure ROI
Enterprise and service-provider organizations have spent billions of dollars over the past several years acquiring and deploying information technology. For IT and service-management groups, the tension between budgets and the demand for features, flexibility, capacity, and performance is a never-ending reality.
We are uniquely skilled at solving business problems through the application of technology. We help you to maximize return on your technology investment with superior IT and business performance in:
- Network transport
- IP communications
- Data center
- Computing platforms
Our expertise enables you to navigate the shifting currents of economics and technology, anticipating and mastering the right solutions for maximum value.
We offer comprehensive professional services for enterprise and service provider clients to plan, design, implement, and optimize their IT infrastructure. We consistently exceed client expectations by providing superior consulting and engineering expertise. Our efficient delivery of innovative technical architectures, implementations, and post-conversion support is unmatched.
Whether formulating a convergence strategy for a global financial firm, designing and implementing an MPLS backbone for a leading mobile carrier, or planning and executing data-center consolidation for a major publisher, Thrupoint’s long-standing relationships with our clients and our global reputation keeps us out in front in an ever-changing technology marketplace.
The rapid development of network components over the past decade, coupled with reorganizations, acquisitions, globalization, regulatory mandates, has left many companies with complex network environments that are difficult to manage and update.
Network transport delivers communications services within and between applications, platforms, facilities, locations, and businesses. We help you plan, design, and implement the network infrastructure that supports connectivity and information sharing.
We will conduct a strategic assessment that evaluates business and technical elements to ensure security, reliability, and best-practices are applied across your IT organization. Employing needs-assessment, network discovery, and traffic analysis, we will deliver a robust and scalable design, gap analysis, and implementation recommendation.
We provide the expertise and partner relationships to implement services specific to your business needs, and to ensure you’re prepared to manage your network.
Network transport will:
- Improve network reliability and performance
- Reduce complexity, and reduce operating and support costs
- Enable new capabilities to support business innovation and changing requirements
Communication makes business possible. For enterprise organizations, communications capabilities and infrastructure facilitate revenue-generating transactions. For service providers, communications capabilities and infrastructure are a direct source of revenue.
Prior to the advent of IP-based solutions, enterprise organizations invested in proprietary hardware and expensive dedicated links or contracted with service providers. This connected a limited number of sites serving a fraction of their potential audience.
IP-based rich-media solutions offer enterprise companies the ability to extend access to a larger audience at significantly lower unit costs over a consolidated network infrastructure. IP-based solutions are an opportunity for service providers to extend new services (internet access, hosting services, IP Centrex) and to mitigate threats to existing revenue streams (long distance, proprietary services, and dedicated circuits).
In addition to voice, multimedia, and video services, Thrupoint’s IP Communications delivers applications to schedule and manage users, sessions, facilities, locations and platforms.
We help your enterprise design and implement a common network infrastructure that provides interactive information exchange across their business world.
We help your service-providers define and implement service offerings, develop streamlined operating and support models, and manage technology-asset evolution.
Data is a core corporate asset. Data management is critical to your company’s financial and legal well being. A secure, effective data-storage strategy must go beyond merely deploying more hardware.
Storage strategy includes hardware and software, transport technologies, and the policies and procedures that are needed to support these assets.
We’ll help you design and deploy a scalable, networked storage environment suited to your specific business requirements. Our Storage services include:
- Information Lifecycle Design Analysis
- Content Networking Design and Engineering
- Data Protection Design and Engineering
We provide the expertise and partner relationships to implement services specific to your business needs, and to ensure you’re prepared to manage your data-storage environment.
Our Storage strategy will:
- Achieve compliance goals and Service Level Agreements at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Classify applications by mission criticality and cost of down time
- Reduce complexity, and operating and support costs through consolidation
- Better align business needs and storage capabilities
The data center is the core of your enterprise information system. The growing demand to reduce operational costs, increase performance and availability, and comply with regulations has led to major shifts in data center strategies. Emerging data center technologies, including application integration, virtualization, automation, and utility computing, increase efficiency while also increasing your organization’s reliance on the data center.
We provide the design, engineering, and migration services to deliver a highly available, scalable, efficient, and manageable data-center solution to meet your specific business requirements.
We assess your current network, storage, server platforms, and facilities, and formulate a robust design based on proven technology, with a gap analysis and an implementation roadmap. Our migration services will address data center consolidation, co-location, and high availability.
From assessment to operational handover, we provide the project management and technical expertise to ensure that your data center is ready for the business challenges ahead
Corporate data centers are required to manage complex computing environments that are often dispersed into multiple business silos. The result: high operational and maintenance costs, inefficient resource utilization, and slow response to changing business requirements.
What is needed is a common-core platform that handles server hardware, operating systems, and application and database virtualizations.
Utility computing is a platform that pools and shares business-services resources. It begins with virtualization. A virtualized layer enables your applications to be independent of the underlying computing infrastructure and allows you to add resources on demand with business growth.
We help you develop a platform strategy specific to your business requirements. Our combined, thorough analysis and development ensures that your company is strategically aligned for sustained growth. We plan, develop, and implement solutions to achieve:
- Improved server resource utilization
- Reduced complexity, and reduced operational and maintenance cost
- Improved service level and time-to-market capabilities to support business innovation and changing requirements
