Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First of all there is no substitution for a qualified network engineer in this case. There are lots of tools to analyze current configurations like HP’s Open View, TrackIT or even Visio but for an application to tell you your needs I have never seen an app that can do this!

It would need to take into consideration WAY to many factors that could only be done with human interaction. Now you could run a audit on systems at a similar size company and use that as a baseline – but you need to find a company the exact size and structure of what you want your outcome to be.

    I agree with KarlG. For networks I found Solarwinds usefull but baselines for unused bandwidth which might be of concern when purchasing a TelCom take time and intervention. Legacy equipement is also a killer of TelComs. Like trying to find SDLink cards for Octel for example. No one software solution can help with that I am afraid. Typically you would want to look at the fiber miles and usage then focus on services and SLAs. Software to run a TelCom could also be perseived as the client management tools like Nortel VPN, Cisco VPN, ProComm excetera. Be warned, no TelCom today survived this long without being "frugal". Is the TeleCom speculation invited or hostile? would determine if the BlackOps tools come-out.
