Switches, routers, access points and data links. For most people, these sound like a random listing of words that only an IT department needs to understand. If you own your own business, however, these terms are essential to keeping your office operating smoothly and efficiently.

What is a network

Simply put, a network is two or more computers or devices that are connected to each other for the purpose of sharing data and resources. The concept of networking computers dates back to the 1960s when the Department of Defense led the first attempt to create a computer network. At the time, this was a painstaking effort that linked a handful of computer across the United Sates.

Today, every computer is connected to a network – think about the internet, the most well-known network in the world. Over the past several decades, wireless networking has grown by leaps and bounds. What started as an elite government concept, is now found in homes and businesses across the country.
