Small and medium-sized businesses have never had so many options as they have today for integrating technology into their business.
This leads to one of the big challenges in business today: how do you set up your network to enable you to do your business in the most cost-effective way?
From servers, and email clients, to VoIP, web portals, and the physical hardware that lets you do your business, there are so many choices. Even if you decide to put your data and applications into the cloud, you still need some point of access for computing at your physical location. You’re going to need expert help in developing and supporting a network that makes sense for your organization.
Fortunately, Computer Weekly has put together a handy checklist for easy reference so you can at least start asking questions about what your network might look like. It broadly covers the following points:
What are the main reasons for having a computer network?
Should I go wired or wireless?
What equipment do I need to set up a basic network?
How do I secure the network?
What else can I use my network for?
These are excellent questions for any business owner to consider. We’ll be covering them one at a time in future posts. Of course, if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact your friendly neighborhood network support experts.
