NIS was recently awarded a contract through a competitive RFP process to assist Metro, the regional governmental agency for the Portland metropolitan area, in the efforts to upgrade their telephone system. NIS worked with Metro to design a VoIP system using the previously selected Cisco platform. As a part of this effort NIS was also responsible for providing a detailed analysis and recommendations regarding the Layer 1 infrastructure and instructions for preparation of the Layer 2/Layer 3 environment as well. The resulting report provided a comprehensive plan to prepare Metro locations for the upgrade as well as bill of materials information for sizing and budgeting purposes.


"NIS is a passionate team of professionals that we consider more as a partner in our work, than just a vendor. After working with NIS for more than a decade, I would highly recommend their expertise in many areas from network infrastructure and wireless projects to upgrading our Data Center to current standards.  We have hired NIS for various projects and have found that from planning to integrating, their experience and expertise complements our internal staff to deliver high-value services to our school district, every time."

"The background and knowledge they can bring to the table, especially when it comes to working in the field of education with network telecommunications, is far superior to any other consulting company I have worked with."
Karl Grandlund Jr., Beaverton School District 
"NIS is more than a consultant the college hires to assist with various projects. They have become a partner who understands Portland Community College and participates with the best interest of PCC in mind."
"When we started exploring a possible purchase of VoIP systems, we found the process and information to be very overwhelming. We cannot thank you enough for the assistance of NIS, and the work of Mike and Diane, in particular, in helping us navigate these complicated waters."
Janice R. Morgan, Executive Director,  Legal Aid Services of Oregon
