Modern Communications Technology: 7 Reasons why you need it

Modern Communications Technology
7 Reasons Why You Need It

Telecommunications has taken the world by storm, but do you have to keep up with it?

Communication is a requirement, regardless of the location or conditions. If you are still using outdated computers and communication technology, there will be a point when they will be incompatible with modern technology and the networks available. Updating your equipment and your network will ensure that you are prepared for the changes that are to come.

Everything we do starts with the recognition that clear, reliable communication is a must for our clients. 

1 – Your computer or software is outdated

Old Computer TechnologyEveryone remembers their first computer, for many Millenials, this was a 32-bit system with a dial-up connection and a modem. If someone picked up the phone the internet disconnected and you had to start all over again. “Hang up the phone! I am on the computer!” was a commonly yelled phrase among households in the 1990s!

Not to mention the loading times were measured in minutes and downloads took hours…sometimes days! Does your system still take a long time to do everything?

Today’s computers and networking equipment do not require you to know how to code and are significantly faster at processing, however, even they are capable of disrupting networks. From high bandwidth-consuming apps that can hog network resources to software that is outdated or even too new, there are many ways your equipment could be holding you back from peak performance. 

If you are still using computers and networking equipment that are not compatible with current operating systems, software or apps, and cannot handle data demands of the 21st century, it’s time to upgrade your equipment. 

Ensure your equipment can handle current needs as well as future demands on networks and systems.

Earth Communications can handle anything from the smallest computer networks to larger integrated networks. We can help identify bottlenecks and recommend changes to modernize computing efficiency. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to design the best solution for you. 


2 – Your network connectivity could be a performance bottleneck

If you are finding that it is taking a long time for the page to load, you have frequent page errors or your new software seems to be lagging, it is time to think about an upgrade. Software consumes bandwidth but so do botched connectors. A clean network installation is imperative if you want your systems to run smoothly and efficiently. 

Ensuring compatibility with future network expansions will make it easier to assess and troubleshoot issues, and help productivity stay on track. With less downtime, you and your team can keep working effectively and with less stress.

Earth Communications can help you determine if you need upgrades and make sure your communications technology is ready for the future, from the wires and cables to the equipment that is hooked up to them.  With a wide variety of secure networking solutions and 24hr remote technical support, we ensure reliability and hassle-free networking. 


3 – Productivity is dropping

The technology is available to ensure you do not have frequent problems and that your team can find what they need when they need it. 

Give your business, and your team, the tools they need to succeed.

4 – You need better security online

Phone Security Online security is a BIG DEAL! If you are still in the dark ages of networking and communications, you could be risking a lot. Modern computers and devices have built-in security and the ability to read security certificates and credentials. 

Hackers look for gaps in these security systems and exploit them in various ways from viruses, to stealing information and taking over your computer. 

Don’t risk your business or employee security, make sure you have the latest technology to prevent a security breach disaster. We offer reliable industry-leading networking equipment and unified threat management systems.



5 – Your IT/Support team is overwhelmed

7 – You are still using original internet connections like broadband or dial-up

Fiber Optic Fiber is the way of the future and is the answer to staying ahead of increasing data demands. If your connections are still using old cables and networks, then it is time to think about upgrading to fiber-optic! Not only will it reduce technical issues with loading times and connectivity, but it will improve the efficiency of your communication network.

Cat5 is easily replaced as many industrial and commercial settings have electrically noisy environments that can cause interference or signal loss. Fiber optics, by design, are immune to these common pitfalls. We can tie networking infrastructure together from nearby buildings preserving security, higher speeds, with a very low loss between neighboring structures.

Delivering solutions at the speed of light, fiber optics will keep your business running smoothly.
