NIS is a fully independent consulting and design firm. For more than 30 years, we have maintained our commitment to clients by not representing any particular telecommunications or security vendor. You can be confident you will always get an unbiased recommendation—because your best interests guide every step of the consulting and design process.

NIS is committed to providing uncompromised solutions, using a holistic approach that considers all integrated technologies. Applying our expertise to your unique requirements, we provide an objective, credible design that will meet your current—and future—technology needs.



The speed and reliability of your technology—wireless, voice and security—is only as good as the framework it runs on. NIS pioneered universal connectivity, allowing your voice and data to share common transport.


NIS translates your business needs and objectives into a secure, scalable, reliable design that delivers the real-time communication required in today’s business environment. We deliver enterprise-grade design service, monitoring, documentation, predictability and stability into staging and production-facing environments.


Unified Communications

NIS offers hands-on experience integrating IT technologies and a comprehensive knowledge of functionality and performance. We design multi-node voice networks, including complex elements such as Enhanced 911 (E911), call recording and call center solutions, all within redundant networks.



NIS uses an integrated approach to security design, addressing both physical and cyber security. We provide design services for video security, access controls, CCTV and intrusion alerts that can be blended into any architect’s design. We have experience with all major brands, and understand best practices for both physical and cyber security.

"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
