Making the most of your network infrastructure

Your network infrastructure is the way that your business runs. It encompasses everything from your broadband connectivity to your phone lines and your IT systems. Therefore, everything must work together seamlessly, allowing you and your business to function as you should.

You may think that you have the right system for your needs. As technologies change, it’s important to consider whether you have the right foundations in place. Your network infrastructure enables all business operations to take place. It allows all devices and users to connect and communicate together effectively. An outdated network infrastructure means that you will be unable to benefit from the latest hardware and software equipment. It can lead to huge inefficiencies which could directly impact your bottom line. 

Updating your network infrastructure is a big decision

Choosing to update or install a network infrastructure can be costly. You need to know exactly what you are looking for and how it will work together before making a final decision.

When it comes to upgrading or installing new network infrastructures, our team of qualified technicians will work closely with you to understand your business. We consider what technologies you are currently using. We anticipate what you may need in the future. This allows us to design a comprehensive network infrastructure that will have a lasting positive impact on your business.

What should my network infrastructure include?

Your network infrastructure should drive all communications between users, equipment, and external networks. To have an effective IT network infrastructure, you need to think about all the individual components that help you to function efficiently. This can include structured cabling, routers and switches, servers, hubs, wireless access points, and VoIP phone systems. It can even include firewalls and encryption keys.

Having an effective network infrastructure set up means that your business can work as efficiently as possible. You can set up Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN) which will enable you to segregate your network traffic types in order to secure one from the other or prioritise a network traffic type. You can make the most of cloud-based technologies. You can have full integration between your VoIP telephone systems with your data network. You can also establish Virtual Private Networks (VPN) which are vital if you wish to facilitate working from home capabilities.

Ultimately, your network infrastructure should be the building blocks which optimise your business for new and emerging technologies.
