AVIXA Enterprise IT Power Hour: Price vs Cost for Networking Projects

Join DigiBox MD & CTO Marc Risby on the latest Avixa Enterprise IT Power Hour on 22nd February.

When considering undertaking a new networking endeavour, two very important questions to answer are “What do we need?” and “How much will it cost?”. Evaluating the various solutions for creating, rebuilding, and maintaining networking solutions can be a challenge. Identifying what you need at the price point you can afford often takes priority, but the lifetime maintenance costs are also important to factor into the project. Learn what to know when scoping out a networking project and how to accurately estimate the cost of hardware, configuration, and infrastructure before you begin.

Join this February Power Hour to learn about:  

Overall equipment assessment and understanding of the project needs.

Adding on to your infrastructure incrementally.

Determining what is and isn't “bloat” gear.
