Physical Cabling. Physical, structured cabling is ideal for offices that need computers permanently linked together. Generally physical cabling runs around the outside of a room in conduit and terminates at network sockets. This then allows the computers to be plugged in to the network with patch cables.

Wireless. For small networks, wireless networking is ideal as it has no physical cabling other from the router to the a location such as the internet. PC’s will require a wireless network card, but most laptops have wireless connectivity built in. This is a quick network solution, but is not recommended for permanent networks.

Peripheral Sharing. You may need to connect your computers together for no other reason than sharing a device such as a printer, plotter or scanner. This is a cost effective solutions as it negates the need for multiple devices or a time saver as it stops the need for moving files from one computer to another via CD or USB storage.

Internet Sharing. With more and more services moving to the internet, most computers will need internet access. This is another reason why you would need your computers networking together.

Email. With the internet comes email. The most cost effective way of sending information. Email these days forms a very large part of our everyday working life.

Central File Sharing. Rather than have multiple copies of files on your computers, copied from one to the other, a central location for files linked together is ideal. This leads to better document management so that out of date copies of documents are not used.

These are just some of the ways in which AssistIT Business Computer Services can help your networking needs. For more information, contact us through our contact page

“We called AssistIT when we wanted to add a wireless hotspot to our lodges and after a simple telephone conversation, they knew exactly what we needed. They visited our site, sat with us and explained exactly what our options were. Within a few days of agreeing the proposal, we had a fully functional wireless hotspot for our customers to use.”
