In today’s IT-driven world, a lot of investment is being made into faster internet connections, security, firewalling, virtualisation, unified communications solutions, etc. while the local area network (LAN) is sometimes left behind. Ironically, the LAN is critical to all of these services to provide a fast, secure and reliable means of transporting data and voice. A stable LAN also provides cost savings through a more efficient and available workforce able to access all your business services.
Additional savings can be made through the latest advances in power consumption and dynamic power over ethernet (PoE) allowing devices to be powered down from the LAN when not in use, e.g. when the office is closed overnight.
We understand how stretched IT departments have become so provide a consultancy-based approach to identify your key requirements and tailor a solution which can grow as you do which can include the deployment of new infrastructure cabling, switches and routers as part of your new LAN solution.
A recent security report advised that 39%* of data leaks and breaches originate from inside the business. As part of the LAN design process, we can advise on best practices to protect your LAN from internal threats.
We would love to hear from you if you considering an upgrade of your LAN.
