No business wants to face the stressful scramble that is network downtime. From customers flooding phone lines asking when you’ll be back up to frustrated internal users and the headache of troubleshooting, managing a network in-house can be downright painful.

In this blog we explain how LAN management can help you lift the burden of network downtime and improve your network’s reliability.

What is LAN Management?

LAN management, or simply “network management,” is exactly how it sounds: the management of your business’s LAN by a provider, rather than managing LAN internally. Services of a LAN management provider include:

  • Setting up and maintaining your on-premise LAN devices
  • Monitoring and reporting on network status
  • Promptly notifying customers and internal users if any network problems occur
  • Diagnosing and solving issues throughout the network

How Can LAN Management Help Your Business?

If you’re managing your LAN on your own, chances are it’s time-consuming, costly, and often frustrating. By hiring a LAN management company, your provider will have your back and can help you reduce downtime by diagnosing and solving problems for you.

Your LAN management provider will also monitor closely and report on your network status, helping you proactively keep customers and internal users informed when downtime occurs. Your provider can communicate to users on your behalf to let them know you’re aware that the network is down, you’re actively working on a solution, and what the ETA is to get back up and running.
