Computer networking is the process of creating the means by which computing devices can communicate with other computing devices. This is usually done to provide a means of communication between users and/or to share computer resources.
In a domestic or small business setting a typical network will consist of a broadband-enabled phone line connecting to a router (hub), which in turn will connect to one or more computers and printers, either wirelessly or via network cables.
This enables one internet connection to be shared between several computers and accessed simultaneously. Likewise, one printer can also be shared between several computers, and files saved on one PC or storage device can be accessed from another PC on the network.
The advantages and cost saving benefits of a computer network are numerous so if you would like to know more then please get in touch.
