There are three main reasons for connecting computers in a network:

  • Share information. This can be messages such as e-mail, or records in a database, or it can be files that are stored centrally and accessed from a variety of locations and devices.
  • Share resources. It is more cost effective to share devices such as printers, scanners, internet connections etc, than to provide separate devices for each user.
  • Centralized control. It is easier to control security and access when computers are networksed. It also simplifies the back up of data and the distribution of standard software configurations.

Wired or Wireless?

Wireless access is almost ubiquitous now, with some laptops and tablets having no other mean of networking. But in standard office environments, CAT6 still offers better performance and security. But Wi-Fi certainly has its place, especially in older buildings where routing cables between floors and rooms is not always possible.

Many of our customers enjoy the best of both worlds with a cabled core to their network, but have also added wireless access points in locations where staff come and go with laptops on a frequent basis.
