Network hardware upgrade is now mandatory for any business cause If your businesses are relying on older network hardware, it is probably time for a network hardware upgrade.
Here are 5 primary reasons why you should need a network hardware upgrade:
- Your network is slower
Older networks weren’t built to support the technology demands of today’s workforce. Modern converged wired and wireless technology allows you to work everywhere—at record speed. For example, there are now wireless access points that can deliver theoretical speeds of up to 6.9 Gbps. That’s 11.5 times faster than the previous generation (802.11n)! And with Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit technology for example, you will be able to get speeds beyond 1 Gb on existing Cat5e cables (and likely save money).
- Your employees need more time.
The modern workforce expects a work-from-anywhere environment, but mobile solutions and cloud-based business applications can overwhelm an older infrastructure. Upgrading to a modernized network can make a real difference to productivity. COVID has reshaped the office culture and a lot of changes are here to stay.
- You suffer from “I-think-it-is-good-enough security”.
Threats to your network are more sophisticated and targeted than ever before. The older your infrastructure, the more vulnerable you become. With a modern network, intelligent sensors and enforcers are embedded into your switches, routers, and wireless solutions, giving you an enhanced sense of security. Everywhere.
- Your IT Manager is spending most of their time maintaining.
Introducing new technology puts an increased strain on older infrastructures that then require more and more attention. Your business can’t grow, let alone innovate if your IT manager is forced to spend most of his / her time and resources on managing and troubleshooting your network. Moving to a more modern infrastructure will dramatically simplify network deployments, operations, and management for your IT manager. Our IT Managed services are here to make your life a lot easier.
- You have application fears.
One of the most critical reasons for network hardware upgrade is to support everything your business needs to give it a competitive edge, from hybrid cloud computing to powerful sector-specific applications. There are dozens of powerful tools and computing environments that could likely help your business, if only they had a robust enough network to run on. Don’t avoid helpful applications for fear of them crashing your network. Just upgrade your network infrastructure!
