Unanticipated growth for your company can be great! For many companies, however, unanticipated means unplanned for. It’s not enough to hope that your network can accommodate all of the extra traffic and needs being thrown at it.
Planning for your network and IT infrastructure to grow with your company is simple, and can ensure that you avoid the significant setbacks caused by:
Overloading Your Network With More Users
A growing staff means a growing company; and that’s fantastic! Unfortunately, without a scalable network that can grow with you and accommodate all of this extra traffic, your company may begin facing severe challenges. Two of the key issues your company risks creating are:
Additional Devices Trying to Connect to Your Network
Whether or not you’re experiencing growth in your staff, the possibility for a growth in the number and sophistication of devices that they bring to the office may be a challenge you face as your company continues to thrive.
There is no doubt that the world of IT is constantly advancing – if you haven’t had the opportunity to reevaluate your company’s network recently, it’s safe to say that it may not be able to handle the stress that comes along with a jump in the amount and intensity of devices trying to connect.
An Increase In “Things” That Rely On Bandwidth and Network Protocols
Many companies today are connecting their data-collecting devices, lighting and security controls, scanners, sensors, and much more to their networks. Regardless of how insignificant these little “things” may seem, an increasing amount of them being added to that list daily may cause an issue. Increased use of bandwidth and network protocols are among top concerns.
Extra Customer Traffic Adding Stress to Your Network
The best, most imperative, and most fragile growth is that of your sales. Communication is key, and with so many ways of communicating nowadays, your customers may overload your network.
More customers means more traffic trying to access your website at once, more people trying to call your company, more sales demos being watched, and more orders to place – the stress and traffic on your network will be heavy.
