Networking Gone Mobile
The capabilities of networks for transferring data and information have changed significantly over the years. Technology has allowed companies to harness this technology to increase efficiency across the entire organization. This has resulted in significantly reduced costs for companies in a variety of areas. Years ago, a company's network most likely consisted of a Local Area Network where as now, there are much more complicated wide area networks as well as the introduction of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
Wired Network or Wireless? Remote Access or Local?
With the popularity of wireless internet as well as the jump in usage of mobile devices, it really is easy to stay connected to your work at all times. While this may not always be a good thing, it is convenient when you are traveling and need to access important information. Most smartphones and tablets are able to do more than many computers from just a few years ago.
Secure Access For Remote Offices
Locations that are away from your home office need a way to connect via a secure and reliable connection. VPN or Virtual Private Networks are a great way to securely connect all of your locations.
Speed and Security
As more and more features are added to web sites and computer programs, the speed of both computers and the Internet is always a hot topic. CEC is constantly focused on utilizing the latest technologies to ensure that you are able to access your company's important information as quickly as possible and as efficiently as possible. Not only can we help with the speed of your network, we also can help with firewall installation and maintenance as well as other intrusion detection practices to ensure that your company is always protected.

"Approximately 15 years ago our school was experiencing some major computer complications, so we found CEC... they promptly came out and took care of our issues. Over the years, we had some other minor work done by different companies which seemed to create more problems than they solved. So when we have some severe problems earlier this year, we called CEC again and once again were very impressed with how quickly they rescued us. Their technician was very knowledgeable and handled the job from start to finish so we didn’t have to. We highly recommend CEC for any computer service needs, and will not lose their business card this time!"
