For most small companies, assigning 192.168.1.1 to your router and using the remaining addresses for your computers will work most of the time. However, if you add or plan to add any of the technologies listed below, it may be time to consider something different.
- VoIP Phones
- Multiple Offices
- Remote Access
- Site-to-Site VPNs
- Point to Point Dedicated Circuits (i.e., T1, Frame Relay, MPLS)
- Multiple Internet Connections
- E-mail or Website Hosting
Good network planning allows for smooth transitions and growth in your company. If your company has more than 10 people and is growing, you will likely be implementing at least one or more of the technologies listed above soon.
Not only can DHK help you design your IT infrastructure to incorporate all of the technologies listed above, we can implement all of them on our corporate network. Our staff has created the central IP address architecture for nationwide and international companies. We have worked on networks with up to 50,000 connected devices in 16 countries.
Some LANs are small enough to be contained within one 24 or 48 port switch. What do you do when you have more than 48 devices? How do you interconnect hundreds or thousands of computers in a single building or campus? We’ve been there and done that! From 1,000 person call center networks to multi-building campuses to environmentally controlled data centers, we’ve put the switch infrastructure in place to keep everything running smoothly.
When your company is growing, we’ll help you plan and install the best switch technology for your short and long-term goals.
