PC Solutions & Integrations: Ensuring the Reliability of Networks

David Rudnick, CEO, PC Solutions & IntegrationsDavid Rudnick, CEO
The year 2016 was marked by big data technology. Processing and data extraction organizations increasingly embrace its efficiency, and it has quickly become the new trend in the industry. As systems supporting large volumes of structured and unstructured data continue to rise, the demand for platforms that aid data custodians govern and secure big data also rises. It is also observed within enterprises that the demand for greater business agility and a cost effective means of achieving it all amount to enormous pressure on all things IT—especially the data center. To solve this paradox, a new approach to the network infrastructure is needed; one that no longer sacrifices speed, security, and agility. “As many of the businesses have now come to realize, network virtualization is the silver bullet,” points out David Rudnick, CEO, PC Solutions & Integrations (“PCS”). To that end, PCS assists clients in harnessing innovative technology and simplify the complexities of IT to transform their businesses digitally.

“Our mission is to enable customers to capture economic value from the digital transformation of their businesses by developing, implementing, and managing world class, cloud-ready, secure, agile IT infrastructure solutions,” avers Rudnick. The firm’s managed services, video solutions, A/V integration, virtualization, and data infrastructure solutions all work toward a common goal. These services help leverage a consultative approach, profound technical expertise, and extensive industry partnerships. Because it is imperative to get the maximum return out of an organization’s network investment, PCS’ Network Optimization Service (“NOS”) audits the existing network deployment and provides optimization recommendations. Additionally, NOS also presents detailed audit reports (such as the leased line circuit costs and billing) to review contracts for inaccuracies. PCS not only brings you the technology we also address financing—Capex, Opex, Grants, leasing, managed services or a financial mix.

Our Network Consulting provides key insights and analysis to identify the security, performance, and sustainability needs of the network


The firm’s Network Services (Network Engineering and Design) help enterprises analyze, design, deploy, test, manage, and support the network to make it cost-effective, reliable, and expandable. “Our Network Consulting provides key insights and analysis to identify the security, performance, and sustainability needs of the network and assists with everything from security consulting to IP telephone network assessment to LAN/WAN planning and design,” states Rudnick. By using PCS’ Network Design, organizations can expand their reach and create new opportunities by choosing the right layout, technology, and hardware. “Extreme Network’s patent pending Application Analytics—a Network- Powered Application Analytics and Optimization solution transform the network into a Strategic Business Asset by enabling the mining of network-based business events and strategic information that help business leaders make faster and more effective decisions,” explains Rudnick.

To ensure that their clients have access to a wide range of technologies and best-of-breed solutions, PCS partners with over 250 OEMs and emerging providers to deliver customers integrated, multi-technology solutions. Partnering with VMware, PCS provides VMware NSX; a network virtualization platform for Software-Defined Data Centers, which enables the creation of entire networks via software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. All network components can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application.

Going forward, PCS will continue expanding its expertise to efficiently operate its network across multiple business areas and deliver practical solutions for a broader range of users. This approach looks beyond the existing technologies to integrate new features to better assist organizations in securing their environment and channelize the products in the right manner on the networking front.
