Recommended Setup For Business Networking
The average small office or small business consisting of less than 30 people would benefit greatly from the utilization of the NETGEAR products featured on this page; enterprises with headcounts ranging from 30-100 people would simply need more / larger devices (say a higher port count on network switches), or would need increased specs on devices (say top end wifi-access points), as well has higher upload/download speeds from their internet provider.
At the core of most business networks you will find business class modems (to connect to ISP), business class firewall/VPN routers (to secure traffic/access), business class network switches (to route traffic and connect devices), and business class wifi access points (to allow devices to connect over wifi).
