Starnet helps mid-market enterprises, educational institutions and government entities maximize their investments in Information Technology solutions, by designing, installing and maintaining high-performance, scalable and stable networks to run their business. The company works with selected technologies that they feel deliver strong value propositions and those that they can support to a high degree, like Juniper. “We are constantly reviewing emerging technologies early in their life cycle, and be ready to design and deploy them once we feel the solution is mature and the customer is ready for its production use,” illustrates Marks.

StarWATCH, the company’s flagship IT Efficiency Management service, blends together a number of critical service and support processes, designed to maximize network uptime and optimize application performance. It works particularly well with Juniper networking technologies enabling Starnet to support its Juniper customers with a unique and customized service offering that maximizes the reliability and performance of networks built with Juniper products.
