What Is Network Infrastructure?
Your company’s network is vast, complicated, and consists of numerous parts. For many companies, it’s too much for a small IT team to effectively manage.
Fortunately, the technology professionals at Van Ausdall & Farrar are here to help. Keep reading to learn more about what a network infrastructure is and why it might make sense to hire an outside vendor such as Van Ausdall & Farrar to handle it to ensure it’s secure, up to date, and running optimally.
What Does Network Infrastructure Mean?
A network consists of a number of computers, servers, network devices, and other wireless devices that are connected to allow for the sharing of data. A network can be as small as two connected computers to something as large as thousands of computers operating over the same network.
There are both private and public networks. Public networks give an internet connection to members of the general public, such as at a library or sports stadium. This can occur either by using a password or not. A private network, meanwhile, is a network that is restricted to promote a secured environment so outsiders aren’t allowed to access the network. School and business networks are examples of private networks.
The Importance of a Strong Network Infrastructure
Every company needs a strong IT infrastructure. An unreliable network can negatively affect business operations and lead to a reduction in productivity.
Without a strong wireless network infrastructure, downloading your company’s data and critical information can get delayed or even lost. If the Internet frequently crashes, this can affect communications with clients and delay filling their orders. Even the phone system can go offline if you use VoIP.
In the end, employee productivity and morale will decrease, as well as client satisfaction. This can even cause some clients to look elsewhere.
Why Hire Van Ausdall & Farrar to Manage Your Network?
There are many benefits to hiring an outside partner such as Van Ausdall & Farrar to manage your company’s network infrastructure.
Eliminate the Need for an IT Team
Large companies need help if they want their network to run effectively and efficiently. A small information technology team may not be able to handle all of the day-to-day challenges. You can avoid the cost of hiring IT employees when you outsource the management of your network.
Free Up Time
Whether you operate a small or large business, if you’re spending time trying to fix IT issues, you’re losing valuable time that could be dedicated to handling business priorities. Spend more time focused on your employees and business goals and less time handling IT emergencies when you work with an outside vendor.
A More Efficient and Safer Network
When you outsource the management of your network, you can rest assured that someone is constantly monitoring the network. It’s receiving the proper maintenance, updates while also being monitored for security threats.
Your network’s managed service provider will become familiar with your company’s specific needs and make recommendations for efficiencies and improvements.
