Design Process

Our design service is based on taking your business requirements and documenting them. This provides you with a series of documents that details every facet of the design from reasoning and hardware selection through to test results and implementation plan.

Design Documents

For each design some or all of the following documents will be created, depending on your requirements.

The only document that we insist upon in every design is the High Level document which is required to capture your requirements.

The summaries below provide an overview of all the documentation services we offer.

High Level Design

The high level design document will provide an overview of your specific solution. It will detail your requirements from a business and technical perspective. Provide an overview of the existing infrastructure and depict how the new solution will integrate into your network. This document serves as acceptance criteria for the project being successfully signed off.

Low Level Design

This is a technical document describing the components and specifications required to achieve a solution addressing your specific business and technical requirements.

Implementation Plan

This document identifies implementation roles and requirements. It provides an overview of the implementation stages required by the design. It also documents any change management procedures and captures requirements required to proceed with the installation.

Installation Guide

This document provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure the products specified in the low level design document.

Validation test plan

This document provides an overview of the procedures to the executed post installation to verify whether or not the infrastructure is installed correctly. It can also be used at any point subsequent to the installation to verify whether or not the infrastructure continues to function correctly.

Operational procedures

This document provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to perform common operational tasks and troubleshooting.
