WHAT WE DO

A typical corporate network with branch office, remote teleworker access, and Cloud hosted services is illustrated below. Move your mouse over each section of the graphic to see detailed descriptions.

Through strategic partnerships, such as Microsoft Office365 and Google G-Suite, we provide a full complement of cloud services such as hosted email and document sharing. Cloud backup services in addition to your existing on-site backup ensure peace of mind and business continuity at all times. Cloud file sharing services enable greater productivity by allowing easy collaboration between internal and external teams.
We provide full installation of IT infrastructure from cabling to server and PC deployment. We practice proactive maintenance and provide regular maintenance visits to reduce downtime as much as possible. Our helpdesk and remote login facilities improve efficiency and reduce time to resolve issues, with engineers available for on site visits where necessary.
To facilitate teleworking and remote offices, we provide secure remote access systems through VPN tunnels enabling full office server and network access, as well as secure third-party applications like Citrix, Logmein and Teamviewer for smaller networks. For project or transient access by team members in diverse locations, we ensure secure and limited access to only the data required.
A complex array of security solutions are available and we continually test and adapt the combination and configuration of products for servers, PCs, networks, email and Internet protection for our end users. The highest grade of encryption is used to protect sensitive data on laptops, servers and backup drives to protect your data against loss or theft.
Branch office networks are securely connected directly into the main office network through firewalls and VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), allowing remote staff to access the same server resources as if they were located at the main office. We can advise on the most cost-effective broadband Internet connections to carry encrypted traffic or arrange for a MPLS or leased line type connection, from a variety of providers and technologies - fibre, fixed wireless etc.
Printer/Scanner/Copier: Networked for sharing, with scanning to desktop or email, and accounting for usage and departmental codes available for those expensive colour prints.
Router/Firewall/VPN Gateway: This device is the gateway to the Internet, rules on the firewall keep hackers out of your network and can be used to allow or block access to specific websites, increasing productivity and protecting against inappropriate content or dangerous downloads, and allowing specific traffic from external sources, like VPN users.
Server: A server is dedicated to tasks such as file sharing, mail, databases etc. Many servers now used are virtual servers which gives scalability and cost effectiveness in employing different types of servers in one organisations. Server backup offerings provides full cover for on-site and remote locations.
Wired/Wireless Networks: Wired & Wireless Networks: The network is where everything links together, even a wireless network needs a wired “backbone”.
Mobile Devices / Laptops: Smartphones and tablets rise in popularity is a continuing trend due to their convenient size and multi-function abilities. We specialise in Wifi and have installed several large wireless networks in hospitality and academic environments.
Desktops: We provide a number of different desktop PC’s, including multi-monitor function, to suit all varying needs and budgets of organisations.
Switch: the heart of the network, providing the physical and logical connections between PCs, servers, printers, routers, and mobile devices using Wifi.
Wired/Wireless Networks: Wired & Wireless Networks: The network is where everything links together, even a wireless network needs a wired “backbone”.
Mobile Devices / Laptops: Smartphones and tablets rise in popularity is a continuing trend due to their convenient size and multi-function abilities. We specialise in Wifi and have installed several large wireless networks in hospitality and academic environments.
Server backup media, fast high-capacity USB drives, which should be regularly exchanged and the spare copies kept in a secure and fireproof location. We also offer cloud / remote backup services even for large storage requirements, as we can seed large quantities of data to the offsite backup server, with daily backups using a smaller amount of bandwidth.

"In 2016, Westboro merged with another business which also involved integrating two IT systems into one. This was a complex and potentially messy proposition. For the type of business we are in, it was crucial that no data was lost. This was due to the potential reputation damage it would cause to our business as well as the the knock on effects it would have for our own clients. However, WAVE IT took on the task and excelled by ensuring there was a smooth transfer overnight. We were extremely please by the service provided and would highly recommend them."
