Not Integrating with New Technology

Technology is rapidly changing, we have seen the rise of computer/mobile applications, cloud storage and new broadband solutions. Technology is in a completely different place than what it was just a few years ago, so older networks are not designed to function newer technology. If your network was put in place years ago, it is highly likely to be having implications on both hardware and software in your business. By installing the latest technologies and using the latest network solutions, we ensure that your systems will be reaching the best levels of performance.

Speed Issues during Busy Times

Many businesses may experience the issue that their internet is slower during busy times, this is usually caused by the amount of users sharing the internet connection. For a large team of staff each using internet on different devices, data will be shared and each person has a lower amount of data to use. This will bring many consequences as it is integral to be able to perform tasks at the busiest of times. At Core Network Group, our data stays at a consistent speed so there will never be a drop, ensuring you always reach optimum performance with all of your team.
