Networking is how we stay connected. The miles and miles of wires and cables, both physical and cloud-based, that connect a business or personal network to a server are the main reason why we are able to communicate and surf anything on the internet on-demand within moments. Businesses especially rely on IT networking as professionals communicate with people both inside and outside of their organisation’s network. Connecting to the internet also helps companies to do the thing they need to do most – sell and stay in business.
