Switches, the backbone of your computer network, provide fast and reliable transport for vast amounts of simultaneous direct data transmissions between each system and destination. Cost effective switch technology provides your direct data transmissions optimum performance and speed in a switched gigabit environment.
Are there times when it seems like it would be faster if you literally carried a file to the server yourself? An extended pause that occurs when “save” is pressed or when the document closes often the result of bandwidth issues. Companies that remember to upgrade their servers sometimes forget that the backbone of their network may be inhibiting the performance gains they could be achieving. Outdated hubs and maus will not support heavy throughput efficiently. The text-only files of yesterday have been replaced with rich content and multimedia files. Years ago an optical disk could hold hundreds of text files; today, a single file could easily fill as many as 100 or more optical disks.
Switches provide fast and reliable transport for vast amounts of simultaneous data transmissions. It is not surprising that access to the network is considerably faster while everyone is at lunch. One reason is that the your system is not competing with the flood of other transmissions from the rest of the company during that time. Switches give direct data transmission between each person and their destination. Imagine the network traffic as a four way intersection on congested two-lane roads. By rerouting the traffic with an overpass or a highway with 20 lanes and bypassing the stop-and-go congestion, the commute time is drastically reduced.
Complete Systems Design's network consulting team has had experience with implementing some of the very first switches on the market a decade ago, and we have kept abreast of current new developments with the very latest cost effective switch technology. Our network consultants have successfully migrated companies still using token ring at 16 megabits to switched gigabit environments. We can estimate the correct backplane size for your company giving you the room for growth you need while making sure you don’t purchase less or more than needed. Our LAN support group can plan your router and switch environment including Extreme switches, Avaya switches, Alcatel switches, Cisco switches and Cisco routers as well as Netgear switches. CSD's network management team is prepared to assist you immediately.
CSDITS can optimize your performance and improve security with VLANs. High bandwidth solutions can be achieved with 10gbps switches or employing SMB 3.0. While many switches can support multiple links with LAG, MLT trunking or etherswitch technology, SMB 3.0 does not require any special proprietary tech or expensive switches.
