CNT's team of engineers apply time-tested procedures for designing, installing and maintaining network systems. We use a process-based approach to build
a powerful, yet cost-effective architecture. Our comprehensive set of network services ensures our clients that their networks are robust, reliable, and secure.
For instance, at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), CSG is helping to design, engineer, build, and operate a nationwide, high-performance
research network to interconnect NOAA research supercomputing facilities – the NOAA Research Network (NRN). The need for such a network is driven by NOAA’s efforts
to centralize High Performance Computing (HPC) resources, resulting in data transfer requirements expected to average 80 terabytes per day.
CNT helps clients preserve the integrity of their systems and information by designing, implementing, and maintaining highly secure networks. We develop and
support the policies, procedures, and standards required by federal organizations including certification and accreditation (C&A) testing. We carry out
information security and classification, personnel security (e.g., ethics, passwords, general software, networks, internet, laptops, and portable computing
devices), computer and network policy (e.g., system administration, physical security, access control, logon policy, assurance, accountability, audit, and
reliability), network policy, software development policy, Continuity of Operations Programs (COOP), and policy enforcement.
Planning & Design
CNT plans the most efficient way to build a fully scalable computer network to meet clients' specific needs, today and in the future. We design complete
solutions using cost-effective strategies to achieve both short-term and long-term goals. CNT provides expert technical support in network design,
engineering, test and evaluation, and security.
Implementation & Integration
CNT has broad experience implementing, integrating, and testing networks utilizing a range of technologies and topologies. We assist in Federal acquisition
policy to assure that components and tools are acquired in accordance with all applicable policy and regulations. We assist in the management of data
communication networks between and within the various centers, offices and data collection sites.
Network Management & Monitoring
CNT ensures high operational reliability, system efficiency, and quality service levels. We monitor network performance, proactively conduct maintenance,
and detect and respond to security threats. We respond to user service requests, troubleshoot hardware and software problems, and maintain virus protection
and security patches.
