Network setup and maintenance

Cloud Strike's experts can design, configure, install, and maintain a computer network within your educational institute or organisation or between different organisations. We follow a series of steps to ensure that the network operates smoothly and securely.

The following are the steps involved in network setup and maintenance:

  1. Planning: The first step in setting up a network is to plan what type of network is required, including the number of devices, the type of network equipment, and the network topology. This step also involves identifying the resources that need to be shared over the network, such as files, printers, and internet connections.
  2. Design: Once the planning is complete, the network is designed based on the organisation's requirements. This includes selecting the appropriate network components, such as routers, switches, and cabling.
  3. Implementation: This step involves installing the network components and configuring the network settings, such as IP addresses, subnet masks, and gateway addresses. This step also involves testing the network to ensure it is functioning as expected.
  4. Maintenance: After the network is implemented, it is important to perform ongoing maintenance to ensure that the network is operating at optimal levels. This includes monitoring the network for congestion, packet loss, and security threats. It also involves updating the network components with the latest firmware and software patches to ensure that they are secure and up-to-date.
  5. Troubleshooting: Inevitably, issues will arise in the network, and it is important to have a plan in place to troubleshoot and resolve these issues. This involves identifying the cause of the issue and taking appropriate corrective action to restore the network to its optimal state.

Overall, network setup and maintenance is a critical component of any organisation's IT infrastructure. By following the above steps, Cloud Strike can ensure that your network is reliable, secure, and efficient.
