Meeting the demand of today’s user-centric requirements presents IT teams with myriad new considerations.

Harnessing the potential of various IT solutions requires a holistic assessment to align current environments and future business requirements. Businesses looking to invest smarter, while using current infrastructure and equipment more efficiently, benefit from an outside viewpoint on specific designs, vendor options and overall requirements. Leveraging unbiased input positions companies with the right information to make wise purchasing decisions.

Solving unique telecom, cloud and data center challenges is what NEF does best. NEF’s consulting solutions are designed to address the most common issues in infrastructure decisions — as well as one-off projects that don’t exactly fit existing descriptions. NEF’s consulting group has the flexibility and know-how to customize a research and reporting project based on the client’s individual requirements. NEF’s research, analysis and assessment deliverables can include reports, presentations, maps, webinar reviews with industry experts and more.



Because NEF has worked on thousands of infrastructure projects and maintains one of the leading databases of telecom, cloud and data center information, clients get the most complete research, feasibility and data analysis services available. In addition to comprehensive assessments, NEF can also provide an “extra pair of hands” to perform additional data center and connectivity research to ensure go-live plans meet business objectives.
