CASE STUDY: Upgrading a Client’s Business Network in Morristown, NJ

A law firm in Morristown NJ contacted Killion Systems for a site survey. They wanted to upgrade their small computer network to a more secure domain network.

Their current network had 8 computers connected in a peer-to-peer manner, without any backups or security measures. We proposed to switch to a domain network with a server that would host the file share and run cloud backups every night. The 7 desktops would join the domain and receive their security settings from the server. We also advised replacing the switch and firewall with newer models that would suit the new network.

The client, a medium-sized business owner who wanted to improve the reliability and security of his network, contacted Killion Systems for a consultation

Killion Systems assessed the client’s needs and proposed a solution that would meet his budget and expectations. This included:

  • Upgrading the existing network infrastructure with new switches, routers, and cables
  • Building a new server with Windows Server 2019 and Active Directory Domain Services
  • Setting up a domain with a unique name and configuring the security policies
  • Adding 5 desktops with Windows 10 to the domain using the Add workstations to domain user right
  • Installing and configuring the necessary software and applications on the server and the desktops
  • Setting up a share on the server to store and backup the data from the desktops
  • Testing and troubleshooting the network performance and functionality

The project was completed within one week, with minimal disruption to the client’s operations. The client was very satisfied with the outcome and praised Killion Systems for their professionalism, expertise, and customer service.
