Upgrading your business’s network can be tricky due to the fact that it’s vital for employees to have constant access to it in order to do their jobs. In addition, your clients and customers might be relying on this access to your business as well.
If you have an older network infrastructure, it’s worth the disruption in order to gain a faster, more reliable, and more efficient network. Check out some of these other reasons for why you should update your network infrastructure this new year:
Older networks aren’t equipped to handle today’s modern technological needs. Many workplaces are opting for remote work environments and older networks don’t have the speeds that are required to allow this to happen. For context, there are currently access points on the market that allow for 6.9 Gbps. In the past, high speed was about 802.11n. That means that today’s high-speed access points are eleven and a half times faster than in the past! If you don’t have an infrastructure that supports this increase in speed, it could mean trouble for your business.
New technology causes added strain on older infrastructures, which means the outdated technologies are requiring more and more maintenance. If your IT manager is spending much of their resources and time on troubleshooting your company’s network, there’s a good chance it’s holding your business back from the necessary growth and innovation it needs to maintain success.
There are so many devices already connected to the internet and there are many more to come. With the rise of streaming services, smartphones, and interconnected devices, web traffic is expected to continue to grow tremendously in the foreseeable future. This means that your network must be able to handle the increased web traffic. If you have an older infrastructure, it’s very likely that it will not be able to handle the increased web traffic.
Your business’s outdated infrastructure is likely impeding upon your company’s ability and efforts to grow. In 2020, don’t stand idly by and let an old system keep you from success.
