So what is Network Infrastructure?

Network infrastructure refers to all of the resources of a network that make network or internet connectivity, management, business operations and communication possible.  This means anything involved in the network comes together to make up a system’s network infrastructure. 

It provides the communication path and services between users, processes, applications, services and external networks i.e. The internet.  The entire network infrastructure is interconnected, and can be used for internal as well as external communication, with data cabling being the heart of the whole installation. 

Some components involved are as follows:

  • Data Cabling – The backbone creating connectivity to all users/devices
  • Switches – key management from the cabling perspective and an integral part of the network – used to connect all the computers in your office to a local area network (LAN), allowing for easy syncing and connectivity
  • Routers – Work by forwarding traffic, allowing devices and networks to connect.  For wireless networks, it becomes essential.
  • Optical Fiber – Provides the fast internet access you need for devices on any size network

Thereafter to seemingly ‘active’ the network the following applies:

  • Network Operations and Management
  • Operating systems
  • Servers – devices that provide a server to other computers; for instance, a Web server is needed to generate Web pages for connected devices
  • Firewalls – Serves to control traffic based on some set rules and parameters.  These are used to keep the network secure and safe
  • Network Security Applications
