Out of Tech Debt
We are Wired for Networks
Networks are built on physical cabling — fiber optics, CAT5e/CAT6, STP/UTPs, old-school coax cables. You can’t have a modern network without proper infrastructure, and with networking technology changing as fast as it is, it can be difficult for businesses to adapt their outdated buildings to support modern networks.
Out of sight, out of mind
All too often businesses don’t keep up with network wiring requirements. They accumulate what we like to call “tech debt”, meaning they are letting their cabling infrastructure fall further and further behind modern standards, eventually culminating in a very extensive (and very costly) upgrade when they are forced to do so. Since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it absolutely pays to keep on top of your network cabling infrastructure.
Modern Cabling, Modern Networks
In addition to physical cabling, VanBelkum provides a full suite of testing and monitoring capabilities for your wired network.

Modern Networks Require Modern Experts
Constructing a new building is complicated. Designing networks is complicated. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of overlap between those skill sets. All too often we see builders implement outdated infrastructure plans that won’t support what a business wants to do with its network. This is because of two reasons: either the builder doesn’t know modern network infrastructure requirements, or the owner hasn’t decided what systems are needed to run their business. That’s where we come in.
A Little Planning Goes a Long Way
This may seem obvious, but we’ve found that owners don’t like unexpected delays or incurring additional costs during a construction project. Unfortunately, improper network infrastructure design has cost many projects time and money. That’s why the best time to design your network and network requirements is during the pre-construction phase. That way we can coordinate with the owner and the builder to eliminate the need for retrofitting or running additional cabling.

Saving time and money while delivering a network that does everything you want it to do is our specialty. VanBelkum provides full design-build services for everything a business might need for its network.

Solutions to Make
Your Office smile
It Just Works
Today’s phone systems are different. They are a combination of communication software and apps, secure cloud services, telephony service providers, mobility service providers, telephony gateways, VoIP endpoints, and integration to other IT systems. We call this “the 24 parts of the phone system.”
The expectation is that your business phone system should simply work. It should. We make sure it does. Always. But today, business communication involves much more than phone system hardware and software. It requires a communications platform that seamlessly integrates voice, video, messaging, and data across devices and locations.
We design, engineer, procure, implement, monitor, maintain, integrate, and adapt the best communication platform to meet your needs. VanBelkum’s managed service solutions make it affordable and allow your organization to focus on what you do best.

Your connection to the world
When searching for an Internet provider for your business, it’s easy to become bogged down by tech jargon and seemingly endless options. Understanding it all has become an unrealistic expectation, as technology increases in complexity. At VanBelkum, we work with this technology every day and can communicate your options in clear and easy-to-understand language, making your decision much simpler. We are adaptable, making your decision practical as your business changes
Internet Access must always be available. Slow is Broken. Security has changed due to billions of Internet, smartphone, and smart device users worldwide. Cyber threats and increased occurrences of cybercrime happen 10,000 times more than just a few years ago. This has changed the risk and cost of the security landscape. Public Cloud Computing (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud) and SaaS (Salesforce.com, Slack, etc.) adoption is also increasing rapidly and contributing to the change.
A Managed Network from VanBelkum will ensure that your business is up and running at its peak performance.

Built for the cloud
Video surveillance technology can transform your existing business processes. Benefits from implementing video solutions include increased employee productivity and operational awareness, enhanced collaboration, compliance, and employee safety. Video can also be used to communicate better with clients, prospects, and vendor partners.
Is cloud video better than on-site? How can I use mobile monitoring or remote video surveillance? What if I have multiple locations? What’s the best equipment & software for my business? How do I really secure my video system? What about access for remote employees? Does bandwidth matter? Can I do it myself?
Does It seem complicated?
Not tech-savvy? Don’t worry. We can educate and consult you on how video may best help your organization.
If you are video tech-savvy, you will appreciate that VanBelkum’s video services use secure cloud computing, open standards, software defined networking, and API’s for a flexible, scalable, and supported solution.
In either case, our experience with Managed Video Services will help you implement video in your business.

A Lock and Key
Is So last century
Physical Keys Are Last Century Tech
With the technology available to commercial properties today, physical keys have fallen by the wayside. There’s no reason to worry about getting new keys made for new employees, re-keying locks when keys go missing, or figuring out which access areas need separate locks – electronic access controls give you more flexibility, convenience, and security than physical keys ever did.
A New Era of Building Security
With modern networking and cloud technology, controlling access to your buildings has never been easier or more secure. Mechanical keys have their place in building security but don’t offer the protection and flexibility of modern access controls.
