"ADA Networks understood our needs well and proposed a robust network design compatible with our virtualised server environment and meeting our increasing demand for wireless access. ADA Networks provided a professional approach, good pre-sales engagement and sound consultancy and implementation services.
Discussing both commercial and technical aspects of the options was great. ADA Networks had a genuine passion about the success of the project. One rarely sees this sort of added value with suppliers these days. The added value also extended to complete flexibility whilst ensuring other non-related network components functioned correctly after network installation"
