How To Plan Your LAN Infrastructure for a New Office

When setting up a new office many people only think about furniture, and very unfortunately they will think about Lan (local area network) infrastructure when they are seated in the office and trying to get systems up and run.

When setting up a new office you need to consider the following;

How many devices do you need to connect?

Do you need to set up wireless?

Are you going to use IP based phone system?

Are your internal databases will be locally hosted or not?

Are all connected devices going to have the same privileges?

Are you going to integrate your security surveillance with your connected devices in the office?

Most of the time, LAN setup includes aspects interconnecting databases, security surveillance, phone system, internet link, and internal network devices such as network printer.

In that case, if you are going to lay cable, you will have to plan for stable cable infrastructure.

Therefore to succeed in this integration and having a stable and well monitored internal network it is advised to set up your internal server, PBX system, and security surveillance in one place (in one room if possible) instead of being scattered.

Advised setup

Internally communication is the purpose of your LAN. If your users are going to use a self-hosted database make sure your server has enough specifications to store the database and also if your database runs on SQL you have to installed and run the test first before allowing users access.

Set up a DHCP server to provide Ip addresses automatically instead of providing static Ip addresses, by doing this will make you in a good position to control Ip addresses conflicts.

If your users are going to use an internal mail system, consider setting up a simple mail server, and give your users different unique credentials to log in to the internal network.

It is very important to protect your internal network from outside threats. You should think about the proper firewall between your internal network and your ISP input. (Supported router with activated firewall might work as well)

There are still many more things to consider on how to plan your LAN infrastructure.

This is very brief! If you want me to explain anything about LAN and configurations, window server configurations, and cybersecurity, let me know any time!

Also three tier architecture to configure routers and switches is better option when it comes to troubleshooting..

Mostly people consider getting the wireless as its faster and reliable. However the importance of LAN cannot be ignored. Thanks for the valuable information.

Many have experienced a short term success and even failure in setting up an office because of their inadequate preparation and planning. Untimely manifestation has missled many people into frustration. Seat down and do your homework first before embarking on any business friend otherwise you can't sustain the ability and capacity to last long in that business.
