What is a LAN?

A LAN is a “local area network” – typically this term describes the network within a single office or building and may incorporate wired (via structured cabling) and wireless networks, all connecting to the same local resources. Normally a LAN will have hubs or switches, one or more servers, workstations or laptops and a single point of access to the internet.

A network may be peer to peer (without a controlling server) or client-server depending on your requirements. For all but the smallest business, client-server has become the norm.

Why use an expert?

With more and more data being shared around the office and from the internet, it has become very important to plan your network properly. Proper planning can prevent bottlenecks and service degradation at peak times.
