To Upgrade or Install From New?

As your business expands and grows, so does your need for an internal infrastructure that can keep up with the pace and not hold you back. By infrastructure, we mean your networking capabilities and Wi-Fi set up. With great success comes a great requirement for a reliable set-up. As your business grows and the everyday task list increases, you need to know your office network can keep up.

With prices rising for equipment, it can be hard to make sure your infrastructure is up to date and the best it can be; giving you peace of mind that your office will not suffer from any downtime which can be costly. Sometimes it can be best long term to have a completely new install, with new and modern equipment able to keep up with busy demands during your peak operating times.

So, the big question is – do you try upgrade your present set up or have a completely new and fresh install? This all depends on the way your present set-up operates. Sometimes it costs more to try and bring your current network up to date than to have a new install. The other factor is simply upgrading certain parts of your network will mean you may always have weak sections. This could be a Wi-Fi box or a cable hidden among the walls or skirting boards. Your set up is only as strong as the weakest link and sometimes simply replacing what you can see will not resolve any issue you may have.

This is where the team at LogicBarn Tech can help. We will assess your business networking set up and advise you accordingly on the best course of action to take. If we can identify the area or piece of equipment that could be holding you back, then we can replace this with a new and future proof one that will improve your office network, speed and Wi-Fi; if need be. Having a fresh new install will also avoid any call out fees if we need to come back and fix or install a new item later on. Of course, this all depends on your budget. However, our advice currently is, if it has been a long time since your networking equipment was installed and you are experiencing a loss of signal or dropping out of your broadband, then it could be time for a complete overhaul of your equipment.

We will always advise accordingly and present you with both options with a budget to suit. We do stress, however, that until we have carried out an onsite survey of your business premises or office, it will be hard to put together a plan of action. There could be many hidden issues or unknown problems to deal with which will only become apparent when we start inspecting the equipment. Speak to the team here at LogicBarn Tech today to book an onsite visit to review and discuss your office networking set up and see if we can improve the performance or resolve a present problem.
