A well-designed LAN and wireless network has several advantages. First, it provides stable, high-speed connectivity for network communication and data transfer. Second, it improves network performance, enabling uninterrupted access to resources and applications. Thirdly, a well-designed network can readily add devices and users without disturbances, improving scalability. Finally, encryption, access controls, and intrusion detection protect critical data and network resources.

Yes, there are industry standards and best practices to follow in LAN and wireless network design. For LAN design, the ANSI/TIA-568-C series provides guidelines for structured cabling systems, ensuring proper installation and organization of cables. The IEEE 802.3 standards define Ethernet protocols and network technologies for LAN connectivity. Regarding wireless network design, the IEEE 802.11 standards outline specifications for wireless local area networks (WLANs), including protocols and security mechanisms. Best practices include conducting site surveys, optimizing signal coverage, implementing strong encryption, and regularly updating firmware to ensure network performance, reliability, and security.

LAN and wireless network designers should be versatile. To develop effective and scalable LAN systems, they must first grasp networking principles, protocols, and technologies. Second, WLAN standards, access point placement, channel allocation, and interference reduction skills are essential. Third, they should know how to secure LAN and wireless networks from threats. Finally, designing future-proof networks that match business needs requires understanding of industry standards, new trends, and vendor-specific technologies.

As a Dell, HP, IBM, and Microsoft partner, MCG can assist with all manner of technology related installation and support. Our engineers can design new network topologies to match your needs. We can also provide solutions to expand your current hardware and communications network. Our approach is to provide blanket full service to encompass everything related to your infrastructure including servers, workstations, power and backup, routers, switches, firewalls, and cabling.

The logical starting place for assessing your needs is our Inventory and Audit. With our Managed Resources plan, this process is included in signing up for our proactive technology plan. If you are not committed to MCG for your technology needs, this is an assessment step to collect all the information about your systems infrastructure. Based on the review, we will provide you with a list of recommendations and costs associated with any issues/problems or enhancements we are suggesting.

Our expertise includes Microsoft server operating systems, AS/400’s, Unix/Linux, Cisco, and diverse wide area network configurations. We partner with many bandwidth providers to complete an end to end solution for all of your data and voice needs.
