DSI puts the customer first by providing quality experiences and transparent processes. Our expertly trained engineering, sales, and support teams strive to add value to every project, at no extra cost to the customer, including:
DSI upgraded the entire network infrastructure for a county government to support the Cisco VoIP platform. We replaced the existing aging system with state of the art Cisco Phone System.
DSI also implemented a Unified Wireless system in one building, which the customer plans to expand to all buildings throughout the county.
DSI delivered and installed multiple Cisco Nexus 9000 units and associated software for the customer’s technology center, which needed hardware upgrades and to expand the current IT network.
The additional network capacity was critical to ensuring the continuity of operations by minimizing system vulnerabilities, allowing for the expansion of the existing production storage area network, and ensuring operability in conjunction with existing equipment. The additive switches will integrate with the existing Cisco-based network infrastructure and allow the customer to take advantage of significant technological improvements and cost savings in maintenance and operation of the complete infrastructure.
DSI also updated critical equipment in the enterprise network and security infrastructure. The systems needing replacement had end-of-life announcements by the manufacturer and had security vulnerabilities that may not be addressable by vendor software patches or updates.
A large public school system with 7 data centers and 76 schools needed data center equipment and services in order to upgrade the current network to internet with failover capability network.
Solutions/Services Deployed: DSI delivered a state of the art solution to the customer by integrating with Cisco Professional services and installing the MAN/WAN equipment in record duration of 8 months, installing the Cisco NCS, Nexus 7K, and Cisco Catalyst 4500 series at seven data centers and 76 school sites without impacting the business operations of the school district. DSI achieved this by developing and implementing a migration plan from the old network to the new network with minimal business impact to the customer. The team installed stand-by and back-up UPS systems to provide network and power stability at the seven data centers. DSI provided detailed on-site training for the school staff of the cutting-edge technology.
Result: The school system has stable and resilient data centers with a 100Gbps network ring to connect to the internet within six months of the project start date, with a cost-effective solution implemented by DSI. This allows the school system’s business needs to meet the ever-growing BYOD network bandwidth and latency requirements.
A large public school system needed network monitoring, incident reporting, and resolution for Wireless Access Points and switches across 76 sites.
DSI implemented a wide-ranging network upgrade for a county school system. The project involved installation and configuration of switches, data center, and security for their wireless network.
The project transformed the capacity and capability of computing, broadcasting, communicating, collaborating, teaching, learning, telephone, radio, 911, and storage infrastructure needs, which aligned with the school board and executive council business’ strategic objectives and goals.
DSI upgraded the wired and wireless network for all high schools in a county school system. The project involved installation of 700 access points and 350 switches within a tight window during the summer break.
The entire project was completed ahead of schedule and without disrupting any services.
DSI performed a wireless assessment of 43 schools and provided a report of current Access Point (AP) coverage recommendations for updating the APs and enhancing their wireless environment.
DSI's team of engineers completed the project in one month, as requested by the customer. The opportunity led to a strong partnership with the customer and another major project that involved upgrading all of their switches in all of the schools.
DSI built a relationship with a public school system’s CIO who had been previously working with a different vendor for E-Rate opportunities.
After a series of meetings with DSI, the customer gave us the opportunity to handle e-Rate requests. The customer wanted us to deliver to each school a certain amount of Cisco wireless equipment and to submit an invoice for each location. DSI completed the project, meeting all requirements on time, and made it easy for the customer to work with us. The success of this project led DSI to become one of the school system’s vendor of choice for future projects.
A large public school system needed route & switch and wireless network equipment, network stability and reliability, and engineering services to provide BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) support.
DSI migrated and deployed a Next-Gen Cisco Nexus Core along with upgrade of Distribution and Access layer switches for a state government.
DSI conducted planning, staging, deployment, comprehensive documentation, testing, and knowledge transfer through project close-out.
A major state university was using the Avaya Phone System which ran out of support and maintenance. DSI successfully demonstrated the features of the Cisco Collaboration System as well as its integration.
DSI migrated the customer to a new VoIP phone system in a phased manner while integrating with the existing systems. In the initial phase, we deployed 100 phones; we migrated a total of 12,000 Avaya Phones to Cisco Phones upon project completion.
DSI embarked on a five-year $60 million enterprise network refresh project to upgrade and rebuild a major state university campus network.
The project included the replacement of wiring and other communications equipment in more than 250 buildings. These updates will provide several benefits, such as increased bandwidth availability, Voice over IP technologies, and improved advanced research computing capabilities.
DSI assisted a state university to position virtual infrastructure with remote storage for an effective Disaster Recovery solution.
DSI additionally helped implement a campus-wide next generation Cisco wireless system that included redundant wireless controller capability where students, faculty, staff, and guests can work and collaborate in a secure and mobile environment.
The state university customer had a mix of four phone systems. Some of the phone equipment was running out of support and maintaining it was costly and difficult.
DSI migrated the customer to a new VoIP phone system in a phased manner while integrating with the existing systems.
