Like with most things the older something is the more delicate or vulnerable it becomes. In the IT world this truth is self-evident, the older the device the higher the failure rate, not to mention that older hardware will, at some point, stop receiving up-to-date security patches. Depending on the usage the basic hardware should last between 3 and 5 years but advancements in security and connectivity may be having an impact before your switch reaches that age.

Five benefits of keeping your Switches up to date:

  1. Insurance
    Up-to-date switches can be a minimum requirement of insurance against data loss.
  2. Productivity
    Older switches will not benefit from modern developments for traffic management and processing resulting in congestion on the network. (Loss of productivity)
  1.  Connectivity
    With advancements in higher quality connections, you may be missing out on improved connectivity due to an aging switch.
  1. Reliability
    The ability to Isolate and disable ports to prevent user error that could result in a switch or network failure.
  2. Security
    Segregation of users to ensure devices can only communicate with those that are relevant to it greatly improves the security of your business.

If you are suffering from data loss, reduced productivity, poor connectivity, lack of reliability and are concerned about security then it’s time to talk to us about upgrading your Switches.

As well as hands on support and monitoring of our network, Onyx give us advice and guidance on IT storage, systems and back up and will always help us in choosing and setting up new computers and input devices – invaluable, as we no longer have that expertise in-house"
