ICS Data’s first step was to establish fiber and Ethernet connectivity throughout the facility. ICS Data provided termination and testing of over 10 miles of ethernet cable, and over 200 unique termination points. Additionally, we coordinated multiple internet service providers for redundancy and provided all network routing and switch programming.
Once the hardwire network had been established and tested, we configured a wireless mesh network encompassing over 60,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space. Additionally, cell phone boosters were installed to improve cell coverage for all major providers.
ICS Data installed a state of the art surveillance system to provide security as well as information on production floor activities.
VoIP Telephone equipment and service was provided by ICS Voice, an ICS Data subsidiary, with hosting in our Tier 3 redundant datacenters.
At the time of the move, all network, wireless, internet and VoIP phone services were in place and ready. ICS Data moved all existing servers, and workstations for Lakeside Surfaces as well as performing network reconfiguration of their previous location, all while maintaining a schedule set forth by Lakeside Inc.
After the move ICS Data enacted a disaster recovery and business continuity plan to enable always available services to Lakeside employees.
