Is it Time for a New Router?

Is it Time for a New Router?

If you own a business today, you use the Internet. Chances are about as good that it plays a key role in your daily functioning, which means you need to be sure that your network is well-maintained and functioning equally well. Here, we’ll go over a few ways you can get an idea of how healthy your network is.

How Many Devices Are On This Network?

When your business was first put together and you initially started out, you could very well have been using technology in one way, and it could have been very different than what you are doing now. This means that the infrastructure that was first put into place may not have allocated resources appropriate for what you are trying to accomplish.

Ignore what you needed in the past - what do you need now?

How many users need to connect to the network… and how many devices will that equate to? Many devices now connect to the Internet to function, and how many devices are involved with your business that also connect to its Wi-Fi, like point-of-sale systems or wireless printers?

You may be overtaxing your wireless network. One easy fix is to hardwire the things that can be, freeing up the wireless.

What Processes Need to Be Supported?

What is it that you need your wireless network to do, exactly? Based on these needs, you may need to adjust your business’ infrastructure to match - down to the kind of router you’re using. Different models of routers offer different features. Our IT experts are here to make sure you get the appropriate equipment for your particular situation - the first time.

How Secure is Your Internet?

As critical as the Internet is for many businesses to be able to operate, it is also a great tool for many criminals trying to take advantage of these businesses. Using networking equipment that helps to prevent these kinds of issues with built-in protections like firewalls and antivirus certainly helps.

The professionals here at BNMC are ready to help you determine exactly what your business needs. To learn more, reach out to us at 978-482-2020.
