Networking Tailored for your Business


First Service Carolina has been building computer networks since download speeds were measured in Bits per second. Members of our staff have been building networks since before the Internet had registered domains. We know how Networks work, how to keep them secure, and how to fix problems when they arise. That’s why we are the Computer, Networking, and Repair specialists.

Internal

One of the most practical upgrades for any SMB. Have a First Service engineer configure your Intranet for optimal performance and storage.

Highlights

  • File and Folder Sharing
  • Networked Printers
  • Microsoft Active Directory

Local Area

Today’s networks can take multiple forms. A local infrastructure (a LAN or Local Area Network) is sometimes required for multi-user or legacy software but there are other options, full cloud and mixed/hybrid, to consider.

Highlights

  • Fastest Transfer Speeds
  • Secure Access to Network
  • Upfit with New Hardware

Mixed/Hybrid

A combination of LAN technology and Cloud infrastructure. Certain tasks and hardware can be relegated to off-site locations, potentially saving valuable revenue. Meanwhile local infrastructure can be used to control business critical tasks and legacy software.

Highlights

  • Tailored for your needs
  • Configurable security protocols
What does it take to get a network up and running?

Hardware


There is no single piece of hardware that turns a group of computers into a network, but rather a number of integral pieces that work together. Switches, servers, clients, wiring, firewalls, VPN’s, routers, hubs, modems and networking cards work together to form a cohesive group. We call them “networks” for a reason.

Modems & Routers


These are the facilitators of the user end of the network. Modems give you access to the internet through an ISP (internet service provider) while the router is responsible for broadcasting service to devices. These are usually the only components someone will have in a home network.


Switches & Hubs


Switches and hubs are a class of hardware responsible for breaking up the signals going acround a network. Hubs take information input and broadcast to any device attached. Whereas a Switch is an intelligent hub, sending the signal only where it needs to go.


Firewalls with VPNs


This piece of tech is integral to safe networking and is usually considered security hardware. Firewalls protect your network from exterior threats, while Virtual Private Networks (VPN) allow employees to securely and remotely access the network. VPNs are usually integrated into a firewall.
