Multi-Site networking is the connection of multiple locations to make a Wide Area Network or WAN. Users and systems will, to all intents and purposes, feel as if they are on the same local network with access to all the shared resources that they need for their role.
When you have multiple offices it can be difficult making sure they are all working with up-to-date information. If each office has its own systems for, say, maintaining customer records, accounts and email, it’s easy for them to get out of sync. And if something goes wrong, they may have to wait for an IT expert to visit them.
All the staff in the company can work as though they are in one office, no matter where they are based. Having a central location can also mean you spend less on equipment and software licences, and systems like email servers (which may have been at each office) can all be consolidated on one central system. Multi-site networking makes it possible to bring all those offices onto one unified network. Instead of having independent systems in each office, you can combine them and have them managed at one location so that not only are the applications covered, but all of your business systems are synchronised too.
Multi-site networking can go further than making sure your branch offices communicate with each other. Branches can share access to services which are provided by third parties, such as backup and disaster recovery. In this way, you can be sure that data stored at any site is protected by a fresh backup held somewhere else.
