When Should I Upgrade My Network Infrastructure?

You want to know if you need to upgrade your business’ network infrastructure. There are four main things to look for when making your decision.

Out of date: is your network fast enough to support the functionality your business requires for both voice, data, and video?

Overused: is your network designed to last? Do you have a Telecommunications Room / Main Distribution Facility (MDF) which houses a patch panel, switch, and all your cables? Do you have jacks for each needed connection? If not, your system is probably not sustainable for the long term.

Cost savings: Reduced power output, reduced cost due to technology improvements (ex. VoIP).

Business growth: Your current infrastructure can’t handle your growing business.
