Network Design Assessments

Successful networks begin with careful assessment and design. At Commlan, we work closely with you in a consultative fashion so that we truly understand your network requirements.

Our Approach

We evaluate your organization’s network infrastructure to determine where needs are met and where improvements are required. Using enterprise-class diagnostic tools, we examine your network and pinpoint bottlenecks or potential bandwidth issues and summarize your network’s performance in a report.

A solution is then customized for your organization utilizing Virtualization and Unified Communications technologies to deliver services that are both secure and affordable. Where possible, we’ll integrate with your existing systems. Where new infrastructure is required, we’ll ensure you understand the costs and reasons and provide a blueprint for implementing your new network and managing it once integrated.


Commlan can provide organizations with wireless solutions that enable freedom and flexibility in your network, which in turn helps you maintain your competitive advantage in the industry.

Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery

Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery

IT Disaster Recovery Services

If your organization suffered from an unexpected crisis impacting your facility, systems, and IT infrastructure, would you be ready to lead a recovery effort?

Traditionally, if a server went down, operations were transferred to another physical server. A significant amount of time could be spent configuring this server to take over organizational IT operations. Ever-increasing recovery time objectives now allow nearly instantaneous recovery if a redundant replica is stored securely offsite and the appropriate software is used to recover this stored data. This is the core of IT disaster recovery in a virtual environment.

Disaster Recovery vs. Business Continuity

“Recovery” in Disaster Recovery implies that you should be able to “Recover” from a disaster or interruption related to your systems, applications, and data. “Continuous” in Business Continuity is uninterrupted in time; without cessation.” Uninterrupted service and access for the entire organization should be a focus for your company, allowing nearly instantaneous recovery and minimizing costs associated with operational downtime.

Commlan BC/DR Solution

Commlan has an innovative and cost-effective Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) solution for small and mid-sized organizations, precisely meeting your organization’s needs.

Commlan’s BC/DR solution offers instant failover server virtualization and full image block-level transfer for more efficient and reliable backups. Incremental snapshots can be taken as often as every 5 minutes for increased recovery point objectives, and multiple replication schemes allow replication to your own secondary sites or our data centers.

Commlan’s solution is a fully managed solution that is monitored and administered 24x365, and our solution acts as offsite backup storage and a complete offsite BC/DR solution!

Any of our services can be utilized separately, but taken together, they help you create a business model that objectively evaluates all the key elements of your project.


A Design is more than a network diagram and a parts list. A proper design considers the business drivers, technology, services, operational plan, project management, logistics, and a host of other areas that could impact the success of your project. The ultimate goal is to have a solution that addresses your business requirements. Our Design process creates those detailed, step-by-step models that increase your ability to achieve your business objectives.

Staging and Testing

Commlan has several staging facilities throughout the region that enables you to view the solution in a contained environment, fully test the operations, and preserve your precious office space. Your staff is encouraged to take part in the configuration and testing process and have access to hands-on solutions training in a non-production environment.

Commlan combines OEM support programs with custom support elements to build a more appropriate day 2 support offering. We provide true SLAs for performance, with the ability to include MAC services. We also retain OEM hotline support in addition to the Commlan On-Demand model to minimize your costs.


Optimization services provide ongoing support based on a continuous improvement process to ensure your solution and infrastructure continue to meet your business requirements as you grow. These proactive management & optimization services provide Online, real-time visibility into infrastructure performance with a client portal to view SLA management & resolution.


Commlan can design your infrastructure to automatically provide for upgrades and enhancements in a cost-efficient & productive fashion. Unlike pure Out-Sourcing solutions, you will remain current with the technology. Unlike pure leasing solutions, the upgrade path can be integrated into the life cycle to ensure timely upgrades, with deployment & support costs included. The Commlan program will plan for the disposition of the old assets and include cost recovery where applicable. Ultimately, upgrade costs are managed more effectively.

Organizations within the healthcare sector remain the number one target for cyber threat actors today. Providing quality patient care, while adhering to regulatory compliance mandates is challenging for healthcare organizations of any size. The focus on healthcare by cybercriminals is driven by several key factors including:

  • Sensitive Data – Healthcare organizations have access to a wide variety of sensitive information including PHI, payment card industry (PCI) information, and PII.
  • Critical Infrastructure: Ransomware groups target organizations that are likely to pay. The healthcare sector provides critical care and needs to have their systems restored quickly, making them likely to comply with attacker demands.
  • Internet of Medical Things (IoMT): Healthcare organizations are increasingly reliant upon networked devices to provide patient care. These devices usually possess poor security, and they are inadequately maintained. Attackers target IoMT devices because they are easy to access, and they provide access to an organizations corporate network.

Common Threats:

The healthcare industry faces a wide variety of common threats including:

  • Data Breaches: Healthcare organizations store massive amounts of sensitive information and data about their patients and clinical research. Attackers all have the common goal of theft of PHI and PII.
  • Ransomware: Most healthcare organizations are extremely reliant upon access to their networked systems and data to provide patient care. Without access, they cannot operate.  Attackers will hold these systems hostage until an organization meets the attackers demand.
  • Malware: Similar to Ransomware, malware can also affect an organizations systems. Certain types of malware can steal login credentials which are then used to access sensitive data.
  • Phishing: Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to be coming from a legitimate, reputable source, usually via email or text messaging. The goal is to gain access to sensitive information, like ePHI or PII. End users are often tricked into clicking on links, or providing sensitive information to the attacker, resulting in a data breach. This is one of the oldest yet most successful types of attack utilizing social engineering.

Securing Healthcare:

The data that healthcare organizations possess is extremely valuable. The growing complexity of IT networks and systems provides cyber threat actors with a large variety of potential attack vectors that organizations are responsible for monitoring and protecting. Like all other sectors, healthcare is overwhelmed by the large volume of security data that must be collected and analyzed. Often, this task is complicated by an array of point security products that are complex to monitor and manage. Healthcare organizations must try to focus on simplifying the problems that their teams face. A security solution that integrates functionality, while centralizing security monitoring and management, is crucial to achieving the goal of simplification.

The Solution:

Healthcare organizations must protect against sophisticated cyber threats and integrate cybersecurity solutions designed to prevent against zero-day and fifth-generation cyber threats all while maintaining HIPAA compliance. Commlan’s managed services and security solutions include advanced AI powered technologies to help healthcare organizations reduce the overall complexity of IT systems while providing cost-effective, industry standard methodologies to secure your healthcare organization today.
