IT Consulting

Trust our IT consulting team to determine your technology needs and recommend cost-effective solutions

IT Consulting Service

Before you spend one dime on your network, your first call should be to an ICNS consultant.

Why? Because chances are a consultation with ICNS can save you time and money on any networking project. Many of our clients think they need much more than they actually do. Others think they can get away “cheap” and are setting themselves up for a much more costly re-do in a year or two. And others have no idea what they need.

ICNS consulting can save money by determining exactly what you need to accomplish your goals for today… and years down the road. Some of our consulting services include:

Project Management

ICNS can help make your job easier even if you choose to use your own vendor on an infrastructure installation. We will manage the project and work hand-in-hand with other consulting and A/E firms to ensure your vendor completes the job according to your expectations and our high standards.

Bid Document Design

If you aren’t exactly sure what you need or where to start, and would like to solicit bids for solutions to your network needs, ICNS can custom design a bid document for you. In addition, we can manage the entire process from reviewing and receiving bids to making recommendations on which contractor to select.

Evaluation, Analysis and Documentation of Standards

Most large companies have a set of corporate network standards that are often incomplete, inaccurate or not up to current technological standards. ICNS can review and audit existing documentation. Then we can create a current, accurate, comprehensive set of documents that meet those standards.

Technology Assessment of Current Infrastructure and/or Network Designs

Before you even think about any new software or hardware upgrade, this service can save you tons of time and money. We help you determine your needs today… expected needs tomorrow… and ensure your upgrade includes exactly what your network requires.

RCDD Services

If your bid processes require that an independent professional review the installation, look no further than ICNS. Our consultants are RCDD-certified and can be contracted out specifically for this purpose.

ICNS is your best resource for network cabling, IT support, and technology consulting


"ICNS provides all Telephone as well as Ethernet devices and cabling installations to support Voice/Data Communications, Process Control and RFID for our 130,000 SQFT manufacturing facility in Medina, OH. I find their Workmanship, Project Management and Customer Care to be reasonably priced, of good quality and delivered on time. I anticipate a long mutually beneficial relationship with ICNS and wish them success in all their endeavors."

"Forest City contacted ICNS for assistance with a cabling issue at a remote property. It was a Friday evening, shortly after 5:00pm EST and the property with troubles was located in California, several time zones away. There was a severe issue with the T1 data circuit that the business depended on completely. Forest City called ICNS and provided them with the details of the situation and they were able to provide a technician on-site within the hour. Once on-site, the technicians were able to specifically identify the problem. The speedy response from ICNS was impressive and appreciated. It is reassuring to know that we (Forest City) can depend on ICNS for consistently great service, especially in times of emergencies."

"The Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations court has enjoyed a very successful working relationship with ICNS since 1998. We contracted with this company to install Cat5 cabling throughout this old building prior to our installation of a new computer system. The company worked quietly and without incident during court hours and when necessary, worked after normal business hours to complete the project. We have used ICNS and continue to utilize their services to the present time. I hope our court can continue this working relationship with this company."

"Just wanted to send you guys a "Thank you" note for applying confirmation during our migration for site 288 - Alabama Plant 21. It really was appreciated and offered your continued support for this difficult program."

"ICNS has been the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library's data line installer of choice for more years than I can count. Most recently, they performed all cabling for both data and telephones throughout the $15 million renovation of our Main Library. This work included cat 5 and fiber wiring as well as the installation of all patch panels and racks on three floors of two buildings. During the many months of this complex project, we found all ICNS' employees to be professional, knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with. Their work came in on estimate and, at the last minute, when we needed additional work done very quickly, they performed it exactly to our specifications and at a reasonable price, despite the overtime. I give my unqualified recommendation of ICNS to any organization needing data line and telecommunications equipment installation."

"I just wanted to let you know we are extremely pleased with the work and the services that ICNS recently performed for ASC. The cabling job and the move of the access control system, the door audio/visual system, and our IP cameras were done exactly to our requirements. When there were questions, we were always asked to make sure the work was being done correctly and how we wanted it. ICNS made our move so incredible easy. I wish all the vendors we work with were as reliable, diligent, and did the same quality of work as we received from ICNS. I recommend your company to everyone I can."
