This applies to the hardware, devices and software that are interconnected to each other and to the Internet. Modern life has come to depend upon information technology to everything from paying bills online, checking your email to storing personal and business data.
Physical hardware, such as computers and printers and the Internet hardware sources, like telephone or cable television lines and satellites are the most obvious aspects of Network Infrastructure.
But, behind the scenes, devices like servers, routers, switches, firewalls, aggregators and repeaters all work together to complete the information technology cycle. Keeping these devices in good repair and maintenance reduces “downtime”, something we affectionately refer to as “separation anxiety”.
Network infrastructure can also apply to the software that is utilized to send and receive as well as manage these transmission signals. When all these components are working properly, personal and business activities that depend upon computer technology like the sharing, printing and backing up of files can operate smoothly and efficiently without interruption.
You wouldn’t think of asking your brother-in-law to handle important and sensitive accounting tasks, would you? Of course not. The sensible thing is to hire a professional, trained in all the tax laws, functions and aspects of accounting. The same goes for your Network Infrastructure set-up, maintenance and repair.
