CoMedia Consulting has broad networking experience that can help with
everything from defining network requirements to the specification and
installation of network hardware and software. Recently we have helped
several companies redefine their networks with enhanced DNS services,
fault-tolerant load-balanced servers and firewalls.
Is your IT bursting at the seams? pipes too thin? Is the load simply
too great for your existing infrastructure? We can analyze your
network, pinpoint the bottlenecks and build solutions that will
facilitate your company's continued growth.
Is your email secure? Are your sites safe from crackers?
If you're online, it's possible (and even likely) that someone is
watching (and tracking) you. How paranoid should you be, and what
can you do about it? Will packet filtering and NAT suffice? Or is there
a stateful firewall and VPN in your future? We have some answers.
Need some software written? CoMedia has experience in engineering and
developing systems, using languages ranging from Lisp to Java and tools
including UML and XML. Our strength lies in architecting systems
designed for easy, long-term maintainability.
