Understanding Your Remote Work Landscape

Before diving into network design, assess your remote work environment:

  • Employee Count: How many employees will be working remotely?
  • Applications: What applications will they use most?
  • Security: What measures are in place to protect company data?

Key Network Design Essentials

  1. High-Bandwidth Connection: Ensure your internet connection has enough bandwidth to handle increased traffic from remote employees. Consider options like fiber optic internet for its exceptional speeds and reliability.
  2. SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network): Enhances network performance and reliability by intelligently routing traffic across multiple connections, ensuring optimal performance for critical applications.
  3. Secure Remote Access: Implement secure remote access solutions like VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) or SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) to allow employees to access company resources securely from anywhere.
  4. Wireless Network Optimization: Optimize your office wireless network with high-performance access points and proper signal coverage for occasional office visits by remote employees.
