IT Infrastructure

Beyond The Fibre

The ever growing number of devices and applications that need access to the internet means it is essential the internal IT infrastructure connects securely and efficiently to the fibre internet connection.  Fast and efficient LAN switches fed with correctly installed CAT6 cabling create the backbone of a business’s network. The below diagram shows the essential equipment that is required to facilitate your connections, along with some end user devices necessary but often not budgeted for:

BMT will guide you through the essential LAN equipment required to maintain a fast, efficient and secure network. The physical components such as the cabling and the wireless access points combine with DHCP routers provides access to your network, whilst the intrusion protection and anti-virus software of a firewall creates the secure environment required for you to operate in. Consideration around the need for future devices and new technology such as CCTV systems, should be made during the planning stage of any project.

The final specification and equipment needed will be dependent on your individual requirements and potential desire to manage your own network. However with almost all devices from cloud based applications to modern day phone systems now needing and having internet access, it is essential the foundations are securely in place.

Installation Options

Our installation options allow you to decide how involved you wish to be in the technical setting up and management of the equipment. From a simple test and connect of the equipment to a fully managed provision the options are there to facilitate the needs of your organisation:
