Competing Integrators Do Own Network / Server Design At Lower Cost - What Can We Do?

When bidding on VMS projects, we often run into a requirement where the integrator is required to design the required server and core/edge network infrastructure for camera systems.

While we can usually rely on BCD to specify the requirements, other competing integrators do their own design and have purpose built servers at much lower cost, which is typically the most significant bulk of the equipment budget overall.

Can anyone offer suggestions as to resources / partnerships with other vendors who specialize in this approach?
