Early on, Fulton May’s senior engineers collaborated with Cisco to determine the best way to set up a technology infrastructure while maintaining network best practices. They planned the optimal locations for wireless access points, MDF and IDF network closets, and intricate cabling solutions. Fulton May coordinated and executed the installation of the necessary low voltage cabling and other network requirements. They also designed the size and layout of the server room, determined the number of server racks necessary, and planned a redundant power solution to avoid any sudden outages.
Upon assessing the company’s existing infrastructure in the old building, Fulton May helped Blue Plate Catering make the decision not to move any of the old network equipment to the new office, and take only the servers themselves. For this reason, designing a scalable network infrastructure for the new building involved future proofing and anticipating business growth. This cloud-based system provided more flexibility, manageability and security in terms of growth for the business.
