Why a Solid IT Network Foundation Matters To Your Business?

In business, it’s literally all about connections. Don’t expect consumer-grade technology to meet your business class needs. Network equipment products designed for home use are just not designed to provide the scalability, security and configurable feature sets that businesses need. A well designed, connected and secure IT network foundation enables businesses to reduce network operations costs, provide highly secure remote access for employees and vendors, and prepare for the future addition of technology without expensive upgrades. Key technology upgrades that can then be added to the network foundation on an as need basis include any of the following:
  • Wireless Mobility
  • IP Telephony/VoIP Phone Services
  • Video Surveillance
  • QoS
  • VPN
  • Data Backup
  • Network and Data Security
  • Video Conferencing
 Core networking products — switches, routers, Firewall and Wireless Access Points provide these key benefits for small or large enterprise businesses:
  •  Improve employee productivity: Employees save time and improve efficiency when they have instant access to electronic files and resources while away from their desks. 
  • Improve collaboration: Employees work together from anywhere more effectively when they can easily share information, eliminating duplicate efforts and reducing mistakes. 
  • Improve digital workflow: Keeping remote workers connected improves the collaboration between team members and, ultimately improves the quality of products and services.  
  • Deliver better customer service: Connecting employees and offices to key information.
  • Provide the flexibility to add to the network: As the business grows, and as network demands change, businesses can build upon their network, saving money in the process.
  • Secure the network: Highly secure networking and communications help assure that businesses run smoothly with reduced downtime due to virus attacks and digital threats.
