Fast On-Site Service
When you have a problem, time is money. We know you're in trouble and need assistance as fast as possible to continue conducting the quality work your customers expect from you.
We respond to your issues fast with the most appropriate method for the task at hand. If we can handle the problem over the phone or via remote access, we'll do that first and try to save you the time and cost of a full site visit. Remote assistance gives you immediate support the moment you call, and is the fastest method of getting help without waiting for an on-site technician.
If we are unable to solve your problem remotely, we will dispatch a technician to your site as quickly as possible to resolve the issue in person. We prioritize our on-site technicians according to the severity of the problem you are experiencing. If your office is in serious condition, we will escalate your call to the top of the queue and get someone on-site with priority response to get you functional ASAP.
LAN / WAN / Internet / VPN / Telecommunications
Our engineers and technicians have experience with local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), Internet connectivity, virtual private networks (VPNs), and business telecommunications systems.
We can design, provide, and install everything you need to meet your data, Internet, and business telephone needs.
If you require extended reliability or speed from your Internet connectivity, we can provide solutions including bonded ADSL for very impressive speeds and multiple connection load balancing / fail over via ADSL and cable Internet connections.
Do you need to connect remote offices or remote employees to your data? Virtual private networks provide a secure, encrypted connection between locations to ensure the safety and integrity of your data. This provides peace of mind for file access and / or remote desktop access to central data.
With the continuing integration of telecommunications into the office computer network, it makes sense to have a single provider for both. We are strongly partnered with Nortel Networks, and provide design, installation, diagnostics, and repair of Nortel equipment. Need to add or move and employee in the office? Avoid calls to multiple providers to get the job done - we can do it all at the same time, even if it means changes to your office cabling or hardware to meet your needs. Building a new office or making upgrades to an existing office? Get everything done - servers, workstations, Internet, cabling, and telephones - with a single phone call.
We also have an outstanding team of designers ready to deliver polished and professional design solutions for your web site. Whether it's a brand new site or changes to an existing site, our team will provide you with the best solutions possible. Our team includes designers as well as programmers, so we are even able to offer advanced services such as database driven web applications.
Firewalls / Antivirus / Antispyware / Anitspam / Intrusion Prevention / Security
Internet security is not an option - you must protect your data and computers, or you will eventually suffer from problems of one form or another.
Firewalls provide protection for your office from the outside world, keeping unwanted intrusions out of your data. With new vulnerabilities found nearly every other day, it's important to protect your network's perimiter from the public Internet with a business-class firewall.
Antivirus and antispyware are necessary in the face of constant threats. Most offices have virus protection these days, thanks to the constant mention of problems over the years. Spyware is by far the larger problem today, slowing down machines, causing unwanted popups, harvesting your address book for spam purposes, and even stealing sensitive information. Spyware and viruses are responsible for numerous business cripling problems. Most spyware and antivirus solutions deal with a threats after the it has already installed on and assulted your computer systems. We can stop spyware and viruses at the firewall, stoping them before they lands on your office computer's hard drives and before they have a chance to install and defend themselves from removal. With the most current threats being able to hide themselves from antispyware and antivirus software through what is called "root-kit technology", this is a critical difference in the way your machines are protected.
Switches / Routers / Telephones / Cabling
Western Networks provides complete hardware sales to further our goal of being a one-stop call for all your technology needs. There is no need to call a second vendor to have equipment supplied for us to install (though you do have that option, of course). We can supply anything you need, from hardware to software, be it servers, workstations, firewalls, routers, software, or telephones.
We provide a comprehensive cabling service to round out our services, providing you with design and installation of any cabling needs to may encounter for both computers and telephones.

Do you need to communicate or share files with other people in the office or with remote offices, remote employees, or partners? We can provide effective corporate instant messaging and document management solutions to enable easy and efficient flow of information with whoever you desire, regardless of their location.
We can host your solution in our data center, or configure the solution to run inside your office, depending on your needs. We offer shared and dedicated-server hosting options for these solutions, as well as e-mail, web pages, and web applications.

We not only sell hardware and software solutions to go along with our service offerings, we also service the products we sell, so you can count on us to ensure your equipment keeps running well into the future while still dealing with the same people that originally provided your equipment. We can even service equipment you obtained through a different source.
