Fast Lane Professional Consulting Services
Fast Lane Consulting Services is a different type of consulting group. Yes, our subject matter experts understand the solutions and skills required in today’s rapidly changing technology world. However, unlike most organizations, we don’t just give you our research and leave. We take the extra step of empowering your team via coaching and mentoring to actually get the job done.
Mentored Install Network Training (MINT)
Fast Lane is proudly participating with Cisco in support of their Mentored Install Network Training (MINT) initiative. The MINT program is an exclusive offer for Cisco partners. Get hands-on training, while successfully deploying Cisco Intent-Based Networking solutions for your customers.
We offer services for Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), the next-generation architecture for the enterprise network. Aligned with the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) it uses a centralized controller to provide a management framework. This framework will simplify the provisioning of your network, administer group-based policy for users, and provide telemetry to help identify problems and provide corrective actions.
An SD-WAN architecture can connect your remote offices and data centers, optimizing network performance, for a fraction of the cost of solely using MPLS. Enterprises are looking at SD-WAN to decrease the number of physical devices required to support applications and reduce the cost of maintaining technology deployed in branch locations.

Fast Lane Managed Enablement
Fast Lane helps you accelerate your business by jump starting sales and deployment of complex multi-vendor solutions. Our level of service ranges from a dedicated Expert-for-Hire, helping you support critical parts of your solution design, to a catered Mentored Install, consisting of on-site deployment workshop including knowledge transfer and additional mentoring after completion.
Fast Lane is pleased to propose a Mentored Install of Cisco® Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), the nextgeneration architecture for the enterprise network. Aligned with the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco
DNA™), also offered by Fast Lane, SD-Access uses a centralized controller to provide a management framework.
This framework will simplify the provisioning of your network, administer group-based policy for users and provide telemetry to help identify problems and provide corrective actions. The proposed Cisco SD-Access provides a cohesive, end-to-end security architecture that addresses the unique needs of the customer while conforming to the latest industry trends. This solution’s automation and simplicity will allow IT professionals more time to innovate,while also helping them initiate network changes more rapidly and efficiently. Scalable virtualization capabilities in the infrastructure help create hierarchical micro/macro segmentation policies that are enforced with the fabric infrastructure for secure segmentation. Thanks to its long-term cost reduction, centralized management, ondemand provisioning, and network flexibility, the proposed Cisco SD-Access provides operational and strategic advantages over traditional enterprise networks.
The proposed solution transforms the network from a vendor proprietary system to an open and programmable infrastructure. Rather than dealing with disparate networks and setting up multiple VLANs, it automates many processes and supports virtualization. With the proposed Cisco SD-Access you can simplify your enterprise campus, WAN, and branch environments, increase network security and scale network resources with your application and data needs.
There are multiple types of engagements available ranging from Isolated Mentored Install Deployments with various onsite days to Production Network Integration Deployments.
Engagements begin with our one-day offering and can extend longer depending on the services required. Each engagement will be scoped by a Fast Lane Subject Matter Expert and team and a detailed Statement of Work (SOW) will be created for the type of engagement.
