You probably know the financial advantages and disadvantages of operational expenditure in your business operations. For example, corporations that avoid using working capital keep the value of their business high. Organizations like schools and governments can spread costs over time - instead of busting the budget all at once.
As an alternative to purchasing and operating a local area network yourself, consider a managed service that's tailored to the exact service levels your business needs. Managed services relieve you of the financial burden of managing your assets and operating the local area network.
