Added to the pressures of moving house is the need to be working and servicing customers as soon as possible.
Proper planning for the move is the key to success. Suppliers like phone companies, Internet service providers, electricians and structured wiring contractors all need plenty of time.
Planning the efficient location of equipment needs care. Putting important equipment under the stairs with the mops and buckets might get it out of the way, but it won’t lead to a reliable system. Issues like ventilation and air conditioning are essential, and any business that does not make allowance for them will have problems.
Network wiring is an area that is often poorly planned and implemented. The cost of cable and fittings are low compared to the costs of contractors coming back to a working office to add wires. The whole point of fitting structured wiring is that when the business evolves the network can be re-patched to accommodate the changes. Fitting precisely what is needed is usually a mistake as extra equipment is nearly always added.
On move day the existing system needs to be dismantled and packed for secure transportation so that everything will work once reinstalled in the new location. Vehicles need to be loaded so key equipment is available first, ready for installation at the new site.
Plenty of time is required to install everything at the new location and test it. On go-live day users will need support and someone on site is better than relying on remote support.
Documenting all the changes will be needed for ongoing support.
