A network is a collection of different devices that are connected with each other and facilitate data sharing. There are several advantages of networking such as back up option for file server, sharing of a network printer, sharing of groupware applications and simplification of administrator’s job.
Foundation of Networking
Switches: They act as controllers and allow the devices to communicate with each other. There are two types of switches: Managed on-premises and cloud-managed switches. The first one allows you to configure and manage the LAN while the latter one simplifies network management.
Routers: Multiple networks can be connected with each other via a router. Even the network of computers can be connected to the internet network. Different computers get access to a single internet connection. After analyzing the data, the router selects the best route to transfer it. They also help in protecting the data from security threats.
Access Points: It enables the connection of devices to the network without any requirement of cables. An access point increases the bandwidth to ensure that all the devices are able to get access to high-speed internet.
Types of Wireless Networking
1. Centralized deployment: It is one of the most common types of wireless network systems. When the buildings and networks are close to each other, this system works well. On-premises controlling can be done from a central location.
2. Converged deployment: It is an ideal option for small offices and campuses. An access switch acts as a network device that performs as both switch and wireless controller.
3. Cloud-based deployment: In this network system, the cloud is used for all the management. This enables businesses to manage the network at different locations.
