What You Should Expect from an Expertly Created Network Infrastructure
May 11th, 2017 by adminAn expertly created network infrastructure is like a well-oiled machine. Or if you like steak and BBQ as much as we do, think of it like a top-notch steak house. The wait staff is professional and courteous. The chef knows exactly how to cook the steak to your request, and the price of your evening out isn’t more than a down payment on a luxury sedan. You might even like the other dishes they have too, or you should because they were crafted and perfected based on customer feedback and delivered with the same quality and service you enjoy. But the whole experience matters to you because everything working the way it’s supposed to and you get want you wanted. Most business owners are not experts on what network infrastructure service is supposed to do for you. You probably just want it to work so well you don’t think about it at all - you simply want to enjoy uninterrupted and smooth business every day and remain connected to your customers and partners. To help you make sure you are always receiving that kind of satisfactory experience and business value from your IT provider, let’s go over a couple of the most important things you should expect to receive with a well-crafted network infrastructure that you can rely on.
Enhanced SecurityYou don’t need to look for very long at what’s going on in the news to realize protecting and securing your data and your customers’ data is critical to opening your doors each day – and keeping them open. Every day hackers, foreign governments and other entities are looking to capture and secure data for their own benefit, with no regard for the impact to you, your team or your customers. With an expertly created network infrastructure, your system will be prepared to handle any sort of breach from outside parties – and even insider errors – with the latest software and hardware protections in place, all the time. With the right tools working 24/7 to guard your systems and data, you will be alerted almost instantly to any possible breach within the network, triggering your response plan and allowing your team to address and resolve the situation quickly and efficiently.
Scalability for GrowthSometimes when you’re starting out, you do all the IT yourself, or as much of it as you can. But as you grow and your business activity accelerates to involve more staff, more customers and more data, you’re going to need more equipment and software, more systems and processes, and a reliable and secure connection. These are things we don’t often think about in advance, but this growth in IT complexity usually means you’re doing well, and you know you don’t want to risk that progress by doing any of those things poorly. An expertly created network infrastructure managed by a trusted partner is designed to leave room for change at your own pace and, if installed properly, to save you money in the long run and prepare you to manage a predictable spend without surprise hardware purchases or software upgrades. In today’s all-digital, always-on world, it’s often argued that every company is a tech company. While we wouldn’t go that far, it’s certainly true that your tech and network infrastructure should be planned and set up by people who know what they’re doing. And it should be maintained and supported by people who can provide you with the customer care you need, when you need it. We are those experts who deliver great customer care, so if you’d like to talk about how to setup or upgrade your current infrastructure, we hope you’ll get in touch with us at IPRO.
