Apart from capability, configuration also plays a part. Did you know that a simple oversight, wrongly connected cable or a minor configuration mismatch can reduce your entire business network to stand still? You probably didn’t and all too often neither do the people that look after it, not until it’s too late anyway.
Do you know what is utilising your network? Honestly do you? We bet you can name the obvious ones, file sharing, printing, internet browsing and email however you would be shocked at what is really being transmitted and received.
When that network printer got plugged into the network it was configured to use pretty much every protocol used for file sharing or printing. Even the well-known brands by default are configured to use AppleTalk/Bonjour, DLC/LLC, FTP, TCP/IP, SMB, and Novell – if you are not using these protocols then they should be disabled.
At Proficient Systems we have experience of designing networks of all sizes – everything from small 5 or 10 user offices to enterprise level contact centres of 3500 plus seats.
