"During the summer of 2006, Status Computers were asked to quote to design and replace the ageing switches on a network by a large local authority. The network was spread over 3 sites, with over 700 users.
We consider ourselves fortunate to have employed the services of Neil Salmon, of Network Solutions Plus, recommended to us by Hewlett-Packard. Working with Neil enabled us to promote HP's ProCurve networking to our customer with confidence.
Neil provided us with complete network designs, full component lists and implementation schedules for all 3 LANs and connections to the WANs. These designs were implemented without a single problem, much to the satisfaction of our customer. Finally, Neil provided us with full, documentation of the complete installation.
Status Computers would be pleased to recommend Neil's services to anyone who would like a well designed, faultlessly planned implementation of both LANs and WANs.
We would not hesitate to re-employ Neil's services whenever the opportunity arises."

"Neil's services were recommended to SSERC by a friend as our network was in need of re-organisation to provide a number of VLANs and thereby provide improved security and prioritisation. Throughout the two days Neil spent with us he had a professional, personable, thorough attitude to achieve the comprehensive goals he had set out in his initial documentation. He worked hard to minimise any disruption to SSERC's normal daily operations and kept all personnel well-informed as to what was being done.
The handover document came back to us within the week exhibiting an impressive and eminently useful level of detail with recommendations and considerations to further enhance our network in the future.
In conclusion I would have no hesitation in working with Neil in the future and therefore heartily recommend his services to others."

"I am writing to express my gratitude for the excellent standards of training delivered recently by Network Solutions Plus for one of our key clients within Oxford University. The solution ATC Solutions had installed used Hewlett Packard ProCurve 6400 and 3400 series products and was the first of its size and nature in the globe.
Network Solutions Plus took full ownership of interfacing with the client to create in record time a bespoke course mapped to these new products. Although time scales for Network Solutions Plus to prepare the course were short there was no detriment to the quality of the training materials or the methods in which they were presented, which fully exceeded our client's expectations.
As a result of the flexibility, knowledge and overall professional approach adopted by Network Solutions Plus, ATC Solutions have no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies requiring IT related training."

HP UK Partner Manager & Portfolio Lead,
"I had the pleasure of working with Neil on a virtual lab project. Neil was the subject matter expert responsible for defining the virtual lab setup for a course that discussed the building of resilent, adaptive networks. He also adapted the existing labs to run in this virtual environment and created a lab guide to be used in this environment.
The strengths Neil demonstrated on this project were his technical competency in defining the required hardware/software configurations, his time management skills to bring the project in on time, and his communication skills when interacting with the other members on the team. I would enjoy working with Neil again on another project."
