The Real Cost of Your Office Downtime

Category: Connectivity,Structured Cabling
June 4, 2019

When the network goes down, your entire office goes down. This is a haunting sentence, but one that becomes a reality for many businesses that rely on company networks and IT infrastructure to fulfill their mission and daily goals. The losses incurred by companies during these downtimes can be monumental and sometimes irreversible. One of the best defenses is investing in fiber optic networks which are known for rarely going down.

No Network Connection

What’s At Stake?

Network downtime might not seem that bad. That is, until you realize that network downtime means office downtime, which means a lot more. Chief among what’s at stake is loss of revenue, loss of productivity, potential employee overtime to meet deadlines, customer dissatisfaction, recovery costs, and even a damaged brand image. In a world where time equals money, there’s no room for network failures that leave your business scrambling.

What’s the Cause?

Network downtime can be caused by a number of different performance issues, as well as other uncontrollable factors. While natural disasters are likely to knock down your grid, the leading cause of network downtime is hardware failure. Often, one or more of the many connected pieces that need to fit together to run your network. When even one of these doesn’t work properly or isn’t lined up, the whole system can go down. Other causes include user errors, cyber attacks, and power outages.
