Infrastructure of the Future

Scalable and robust networks to support business growth

Now more than ever, there’s increased pressure on your business network and underlying infrastructure. There are lots of things to consider if you’re planning to expand or refresh your network – it must be robust, reliable and scalable, supporting more users with more devices, in multiple locations. Here at BT, we can help you every step of the way, from planning to roll out.

In a world where flexible working is increasingly common, we use multiple devices to boost our productivity, collaborate better and improve efficiency.

But an increase in the number of devices and applications means more demand on your network and underlying infrastructure. It needs to be scalable, robust and intelligent to support this increased demand – and support business growth.

We’ll take you through some of the considerations you need to make when refreshing or expanding your network. Read our latest publication to find out more about:

For organisations still using Windows Server 2008, time is running out. Like other Microsoft products, it has a 5 year lifecycle and on 14th January 2020, support ended. Whilst it didn’t suddenly stop functioning, you won’t get any manufacturer supported fixes if any issues occur.

This will leave your organisation vulnerable and open to malicious attacks. Hackers are always looking for gaps in your armour; hardware and software that lack the latest security updates are prime targets. In addition, every new application created will be designed to run on the very latest operating system (OS), which is Windows Server 2019.

We can take you through the considerations your organisation should make when upgrading to Windows Server 2019. Visit our latest publication to find out more
