welcome to haven

Haven offers IT consulting to small and medium sized businesses, primarily in the Greater Toronto Area. We specialize in network performance analysis for wired and wireless networks including rural wireless ISPs (WISPs), as well as the design, installation and support of turnkey networks and systems.

Make your IT your Haven.

Haven was started by Tim Preston in 2009. Tim brings almost 15 years of experience working with network and systems to the table. He has done battle on the front lines for all levels of technical support. He has managed an IT department consisting of multiple regional offices spanning North America. As well, Tim has garnered a unique perspective of the wireless broadband industry; he headed up the testing department for a well known broadband radio manufacturer, designed wireless networks for its clients, and has deployed dozens of wireless links for various applications. Haven is the embodiment of this experience. Let us show you what we can do for you!

"You talk, we listen. All aspects of your business are taken into consideration. Your IT operations need not be costly or your systems so complex they are not worth the time it takes to learn how to use them. We leverage open source and freeware technologies wherever possible to help keep costs under control. Let us fit you with technology that best suits your needs, your goals, your personality. Most importantly, let us save you time; you have other things to do."
