Keep Your Networks Running At Peak Performance.
Imagine driving in a major city with no traffic lights, stop signs or right-of-way laws. It would be frustrating, if not dangerous. Your office network system is the same way. Network management brings order and security to your IT infrastructure, making sure data flows smooth and safe.
Common Problems With Office Networks
Network management encompasses a large spectrum of services, which includes monitoring and maintaining network resources. Servers, printers, computers and other networks (like the Internet) make up a vast ecosystem of shared resources your staff depends on to work, and the LAN (Local Area Network) that connects all the dots is also composed of various switches, routers and transmission lines. With so many components interacting with each other, it’s no wonder that network problems are a frequent complaint among business owners.
“I Can’t Connect To The Network.”
Connection problems are public enemy number one with local area networks, and the reasons for this are many. Since the beginning, Windows-based systems have never been easy to set up, move or maintain. and things have not gotten easier. Most recently, the rise of mobile technology and cloud-based systems have added a new layer of complexity to network problems.
Our technicians stay ahead of the curve, making sure that any component you need – no matter how new to the market – is properly set up on your network and maintained for optimal performance.
It’s easy to make mistakes when configuring a network. Company IT personnel sometimes lack the training and experience for the task, and to make things even trickier, there is more than one way to set up certain functions.
Our team is well trained in all aspects of network setup and configuration, including TCP/IP addressing, cabling and wireless configurations, and creating protocols. We also carefully document the relationships between client computers and servers where they access shared resources. When connectivity issues come up, we can easily look up the information needed to bring the system back online.
Monitoring Network Performance
One of the most common complaints we hear is about speed and latency issues affecting network performance. These problems are usually caused by a slow connection, too much data on the network, or using a hub instead of a switch.
Our network management services include diagnostic tools that find issues impacting performance.
It’s easy for an employee to spread a virus throughout your company without any indication of what is happening, particularly if a wireless network is in use. Today, there are several enterprise security solutions that will help protect your data, even while working in the cloud, but no tool is completely flawless.
This is why network security, like all other IT security, depends on constant monitoring and testing. Our team of certified engineers never stops evaluating your network, looking for emerging threats and isolating them. This is key component of our Managed Security services.
