Local Area Networks
The local area network (the LAN) has always been the essential nerve center in most organizations—the core connection between users and the mission-critical applications they need to get their work done.
Not that long ago, the typical LAN connected servers, printers and scanners. Phones were on another network. Cloud services? Internet of Things (IoT) devices? What’s all that?
Now all of that has changed. The PCs and printers are there. But so are IP phones, mobile devices,thin-clients, IoT devices, paging systems, security cameras, access control systems, SaaS platforms, off-site cloud services and much more.
Unified communications and video applications are putting enormous pressure on the LAN. Traditional Ethernet distance restrictions are getting stretched to the limit. Emerging WiFi standards are making an impact. Fiber to the desk (FTTD) and 5G are coming into play.
To makes sense of all of this—and get the LAN that’s right for your organization—talk to the experts at JCT Solutions. We work with LANs everyday and know what’s involved in adapting the range of today’s wired and wireless technologies so you get the LAN that’s right for you.
