How To Setup a Secure and Reliable Computer Network For Your Small BusinessWritten by Chelsea Almonte
A network is a necessary means for businesses to share files, internet, and software resources amongst their employees and in some occasions, customers. Networks provide employees with convenience and allow an easy access to all information that is needed for their daily jobs. Onux Technologies stresses the importance of a network setup; creating a rough sketch of what is needed in your workspace is an important part of planning for your network. An important factor to consider as you are creating your network is whether you want a wired or wireless network. Although many prefer a wireless network because it is more comfortable and accessible, a wired network is generally faster, more reliable, and easily secured.
Once you've figured out which network is more desirable, wired or wireless, then you can begin to select your hardware. First you must determine what type of router you need, how many current computers your company will be using, how many computers can be supported by your router, and whether you need a switch to support multiple computers and devices. It is a big inconvenience to constantly change servers, so you may want to consider in buying a server that allows you to grow into your future need. Next, you can begin considering whether your company needs Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and/or WIreless FIdelity (WiFi).
After creating your network setup, you can begin the implementation of your network. A diagram will organize and present you with everything you need for your network to allow you to run your business smoothly.
