Improving Your Online Presence
Whether you’re a one-man shop or a large business, a website design that accurately details what your business is all about is vital to your success. Imagine your website as a virtual residence. Without an effective online presence, many of your potential clients will not be able to find you. Your website is like a piece of virtual real estate you own that can only grow in value over time.
Good Network Design is the cornerstone for network performance. While it may look simple from the outside and simple “Modem>Router>PC” thinking will usually work fine for a home environment, reality is quite different in an office or business. In a home most people are only worried about distributing internet access to the various computers. In an office, the majority of information may be moved inside the network. Proper network cabling, network segmentation and topology are as important as the equipment that is installed.
When you look to Need-A-Geek Indy for your network design we will consult with you about your current needs, future network demands, applications important to your business and learn how information moves through your business. Armed with this information we can design a network that will serve your needs and grow with you. We can help ensure that network lag is minimized and data moves efficiently through your business.
An improperly designed network can cause frequent lag through bottlenecks and packet collisions. Inputting sales orders into Quickbooks, researching options and generating proposals are all multi-step processes and a little lag here and a little lag there can lead to large aggregate time loss.

Why Wireless LANs?
Organizations around the world are installing wireless networks to increase employee productivity. Wireless mobility solutions extend the enterprise by keeping employees connected to the corporate network’s applications, content, and communications channels for a larger percentage of each day whether they are at work, at home, or on the road.
WLAN Security Concerns – Is Mobility Secure?
With the increased reliance on Wireless LANs, businesses are becoming more concerned about network security. Network managers need to provide end users with freedom and mobility without offering intruders access to the Wireless LAN or the information sent and received on the wireless network. Fortunately, the security technology is now available to provide privacy of corporate data that rides over all types of networks: private corporate networks, the Internet, and wireless LANs. The IEEE 802.1X standard provides reliable, scalable and centralized security management with mutual authentication and dynamic encryption features to protect the privacy of transmitted data.
As employees move away from the desktop their productivity decreases. Businesses can improve employee and workgroup productivity by extending secure, high-speed access to the corporate network while at the workplace via wireless and IP Communications at home via telework, and on the road via secure wireless solutions at hotspots. As businesses add mobility solutions, they extend employees access to the corporate network beyond the desktop, thus increasing employee productivity.
In November 2001, an independent study by NOP World—one of the world’s largest research and business information companies— found that WLANs enabled end users to stay connected an additional 1.75 hours each day, resulting in an increase in productivity of up to 22 percent.
