ICS&M Onsite Engineer

Onsite Engineer

For SME’s a dedicated full time I.T. engineer / department is a luxury they cannot afford nor do they require, however there is an option available which will provide the benefits of an I.T. engineer with the backup of an I.T. department at the fraction of the cost. ICS&M can provide regular site visits by an I.T. engineer who will maintain your I.T. systems to the highest levels performing tasks that just don’t get done when I.T. is processed in-house.

  • Your backup is an essential part of your disaster recovery process but very few companies actually check their backup is completing successfully and check the data on their backup media. The onsite engineer will check the backup logs and notify you of any failed backups and the reason why they failed. They will address the issues to prevent the same problem re-occurring.
    They will also perform a data restore from your media to ensure that in the event of system failure your have data that can be recovered.
  • Operating Systems and Security Applications regularly provide program and security upgrades and patches. Making sure your systems are up to date keeps systems running smoothly and ensures you have all the benefits available that you are entitled to.
    Program Updates: If there is a new feature available, regular updates means that your system will be ready to go as and when you want to utilize that feature.
    Patches: Fix applications preventing crashes and enhancing the user experience.
    Security Updates: Maintains the barrier between your computer and potential threats and security holes in your system.
  • Over time dirt and dust will affect hardware.
    Computers are cooled using fans to pull air through the chassis. Fans and heatsinks get full of dust and cleaned / replaced regularly will prevent overheating.
    Printers also suffer from dust, toner and ink. Cleaning and replacing maintenance consumables will prolong life and maintain a better print quality.
  • There are several types of scan that will help maintain a computer:
    Virus and Malware: Your security software should have automated scans but running full system scans will check your entire system. Should anything be picked up, the engineer will be on hand to resolve the issue.
    Hard Disk: Although they rarely go wrong, there are utilities that can be run that will pick up the early signs of disk failure. Early detection will allow the engineer to backup the data and replace the hard disk.
    Operating System: During normal operation the operating system creates temporary and error dump files. Running the disk cleanup will identify these files and deleting these files will regain disk space.
  • I.T. is constantly evolving and regular site visits will allow the engineer to assess your systems and suggest potential changes / upgrades to enhance your system.
    You may have ideas for the expansion of your I.T. infrastructure – Remote Workers, Satellite Offices etc and planning is an important part of the process which can also be discussed with the engineer.

Virtual Infrastructure

Multiple servers running on a host server…

A Virtual Hypervisor runs on a host server and allows a single server to run multiple guest machines.

You may require multiple servers such as a file and print server, an accounts server but not have the space or budget to purchase two servers.  A virtual host server can run multiple virtual servers providing the answer to your needs.

It’s also great disaster recovery providing the ability to take full copies of the virtual servers and move them to other host servers meaning you have the ability to keep a copy of your servers and data off-site.

Contact us to take advantage of these features.

Networking

Structured Cabling, Fibre Cabling & WiFi

Networks are the backbone of a computer system allowing data access between servers, computers and peripherals.

We provide installation and diagnose network issues for networks of any size.

Structured Network Cabling:
Network installations can be complicated and it is important to have structured networking in place to help with patching and diagnostics. Our trusted installers provide cable installation, network point termination and cabinet installation, termination and testing. Rack mount hardware such as network servers, switches and communications keep the cabinet clean and tidy allowing future changes and upgrades.

Fibre Cabling:
Should you need your network to span long distances, between buildings for example we can also provide multi-core fibre installations. The installation provides termination of the fibre cable to a patch panel or breakout box allowing easy patching and integration to networks.

Managed Wireless Network Systems:
Managed WiFi allows you to have a single Wireless SSID and Password over multiple WiFi Access Points. Should you need to change the WiFi password you only need to do it once on the controller rather than on every Access Point. It also lists the WiFi Access Points allowing you to identify failed units or request firmware updates to each unit. We also provide and install unmanaged single Access Points for smaller networks.

Site to Site Microwave links help to provide network links over long distances when fibre cable installation is not an option.

Web Hosting

Domain Registration & Hosting…

Our virtual servers run on redundant virtual hosts in data centers. This allows us to cope with expansion, maintain system uptime and perform updates.

Domain Registration, Setup & Configuration:
We will register, setup and configure your domain for you. This will include providing ftp access to your website file location, setup pop or imap email mailboxes, webmail and DNS editing for additional ‘A’ records.
Our hosting service allows you to install applications such as WordPress or Joomla so you can create your own website.

Security Scanning:
Our servers have anti-virus and anti-spam software installed which will block harmful and bulk emails from your pop mailboxes. This is not a replacement for security software on your local computer, however it will help in the constant battle against attacks.

Provision and Support:
Hosting with us is hassle free. All you need to do is tell us the domain you would like and we’ll do the rest. Once the domain is setup we can help you to configure your email client and give the website information to your web-designer or help install the website package with you.

Competitive Pricing:
Annual hosting starts from £75.00+vat and if you have additional domains with the same tld extension these will be hosted from £20.00+vat

Broadband

We have partnered with two major communications providers to allow us to supply connections to our clients including ADSL, FTTC, FTTP and Leased Lines. Both X2 and VoiceHosts provide Internet connections through the BT Wholesale network ensuring high speeds, stable connection and competitive pricing.

Business Class Service:
The connections are business class and all connections come with a single static ip address. Our providers can easily upgrade to multiple ip addresses to meet the most demanding needs.

Support:
Any issues and you simply contact us. We will help diagnose the issue and should we not be able to resolve the problem we have direct access to the data centre so we can log calls, request line tests and BT Wholesale engineer site visits. This means you don’t have the pain of contacting call centres. Also, if you have hardware support contract we will provide onsite visits to test and if necessary replace your hardware.

Installation:
Our Internet connections are a wires only service meaning you can install either our recommended hardware from Draytek and Sophos or a router of your choice. You may have services such as Email Servers, Remote App Servers, CCTV, and many more that need setting up behind the router and we will do this for you.
