Network Switches & Routers



Your ability to provide service, conduct transactions, communicate and collaborate depends upon the performance of your servers and applications. And, they can’t function if your network isn’t functioning. Even one minute of network downtime because of a mis-configured router can impact productivity, revenue, competitive advantage and customer loyalty.

Purchasing, installation, and maintenance go together. Because Coates IT & Network Solutions preconfigures the router and switch for you upon shipment, we are in an ideal position to manage it for you. Our enhanced management program incorporates 24/7 x 365 monitoring of router/switch availability and performance to assure minimal service disruptions. Our Managed Router/Switch Service also extends beyond the hardware to include software and other metrics critical to WAN performance. This translates to optimal response time and minimal emergency service calls, as we can immediately alert you via email problem areas before service is degraded.
