Hire Freelance Local Area Network (LAN) Engineers

A Local Area Network (LAN) refers to a network of local computers situated within a radius of 0.6 miles or less. Examples of such locations include schools, universities, laboratories, and offices. Local area networks are pivotal for setting up intra-organizational communication and workflow management systems. They help in connecting computer systems across various departments which enable sharing of files and information. This type of network also provides access to multiuser software systems. Local area networks are created by connecting computers through Ethernet cables and switches. Depending upon the number of computers and their clustering across physical locations, LAN Engineers determine the best networking architecture for a given organizational setup. If you require local area network engineering services for your workplace, you can hire experts from some of the best websites to hire freelancers, like Guru. When you hire local area network engineers from these platforms, you can be assured that all systems in your workplace will be appropriately connected to each other.

What Do LAN Engineers Do?

LAN engineers help in creating and maintaining local area networks in various organizational setups like offices, industrial complexes, and government and private institutions. They undertake the challenging task of deciding upon the best networking architecture for a given environment. For example, in small offices, LAN engineers create a simple star network where all computers are connected to a single switch. In case of a multi-departmental setup which is spread across a wide area, more complex architecture needs to be adopted. Networking professionals start by creating a network diagram and then build the network cluster by cluster. This ensures that the entire network remains functional even if there is a breakdown in a specific cluster. While building the network, LAN engineers make sure that they build a robust system with optimal use of resources like Ethernet cables and switches. In any organization, the bandwidth requirement changes from time to time. LAN experts carry out timely upgrades to meet the new bandwidth requirements.

If you wish to implement LAN in your workplace, you can hire local area network engineers for your workplace. Good local area network management services will ensure proper configuration and connection of your systems. Before you hire a freelancer online, you need to ensure that the expert has:

  • Ability to work on local servers.

  • Capability to set up networking and file sharing on PCs and workstations.

  • Ability to troubleshoot hardware and software problems that may arise in a local area network.

  • Capability of splicing network cables and configuring switches in a LAN.

  • Several years of experience in managing simple and complex local area networks for different clients.

Qualifications of LAN Engineers

It is ideal that your freelancer has the following skills:

  • Professional education and training in information technology, computer science, or telecommunications

  • One or more industry certifications such as Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP), Wireshark Certified Network Analyst (WCNA), and CompTIA Network+

  • Extensive portfolio of several LAN management projects implemented at different workplaces

  • Create monitoring reports and manage equipment logs.

  • Implement network software and hardware upgrades.

  • Provide technical support in case of breakdown of the local area network.

  • Perform routine maintenance on network-related components.
