As businesses grow and evolve, they may outgrow their existing network and require a network upgrade. To help ensure a smooth transition, a careful look at both the current network and the new network requirements is necessary. This will help determine what new equipment and configurations are necessary to ensure that the new network fully supports both the current and future needs of the company or organization.
When a small company grows rapidly, the original network that supported the company often cannot keep pace with the expansion. Employees at the company may not realize how important it is to properly plan for network upgrades. In many cases, the business may just add various network hardware devices, of varying quality, from different manufacturers, and different network connection technologies, to connect new users. Often this causes a degradation in the quality of the network as each new user or device is added. If this continues, at some point the network is unable to properly support the types and level of network traffic that the users generate. Only when the network starts to fail do most small businesses look for help to redesign the network. An ISP or managed service provider may be called in to provide advice and to install and maintain the network upgrade. Don’t let this happen to you. Call GNTI.
Before a network upgrade can be properly designed, an onsite GNTI technician is dispatched to perform a site survey to document the existing network structure. It is also necessary to investigate and document the physical layout of the premises to determine where new equipment can be installed.
