IBM Technology Lifecycle Services can help clients plan, deploy, optimize and refresh their enterprise networking environment.

In a complex IT environment, networking is the backbone of the IT infrastructure, enabling the connections between and across systems and applications. As such, the proliferation of vendors in the data center can make it difficult to pinpoint the origin of performance issues. You can reduce this confusion by leveraging IBM support for Cisco, Juniper, F5, Checkpoint Technologies and more.
