If you’re here because you’re researching things about your computer network, a good place to start is to define what is a computer network.
What is my Computer Network?
Simply put, your Computer Network is the interconnection of multiple devices for the purpose of sending/receiving data or media. This can be online or offline through the use of cabling, local protocols, and more.
This can be a complex system using different models for a network, however a function of computer networking can be as simple as connecting your laptop to your wireless printer so that you can print spreadsheets for your next meeting.
Computer networking is also considered a discipline of the communication process between devices in your computer systems. The various mediums that help in the communication between two different devices are known as Network Devices. And each device used in your network is given a Host Name. Are you familiar with an IP Address (internet protocol address)? This is the network address for your computer system, giving it a unique identity on the internet.
There are many other terms that are used with your computer network. We want to help educate our customers on their business technology. We even offer IT consulting. Let us know if there are specific aspects you’d like to learn or improve on.
How Your Computer Network Impacts Your Business
Have you ever been unable to share media or data with someone even when it appears that you have internet connection? This is a common symptom of a problem with your computer network. Even airdropping between 2 similar devices is an example of a network that, in this case, can take place offline.
You most likely have experienced disruptions to your productivity due to the connectivity between your devices. If your computer network goes down, so do many other necessary pieces of equipment you need to effectively operate your business and keep your employees going.
If the network goes down, communication can become delayed and limit efficiency across the business. Due to the fact that all of your network devices work in conjunction with one another, a problem with your network can feel like a domino effect.
In summary, your devices rely on an effective networking system. This is why it’s best to have a trusted manager of your network to be there if things go south on the job. It’s something that should be continually managed. That is where we step in.
