There are a variety of challenging decisions you have to make whenever you open a new office. Where should your new office be located? Who should staff it? And perhaps most importantly, will you have a network infrastructure in place that allows your new location to flourish?
A properly functioning network infrastructure connects various devices throughout your office, allowing your hardware components and software applications to interact seamlessly with each other.
To put it simply, your new office won’t be able to provide your customers with the services or care they need if your IT infrastructure is lacking. Imagine a client being unable to reach you due to a flawed voice network, or losing valuable data because you don’t have the right disaster recovery backup solutions in place.
These are scenarios you should do everything in your power to avoid.
So where should you begin? To help you make informed decisions as you’re building out your new office, we’ve created a Network Infrastructure 101 Guide that walks through the steps you need to take to ensure your IT infrastructure fulfills your organization’s needs.
