Learn Computer Network “Advantage and disadvantages of network.” Lesson 2

Advantages of Installing a Network in schools

  • Connections– Administrators, instructors, and even students and guests can be connected using the campus network.
  • Services-The school can provide services, such as registration, school directories, course schedules, access to research, and email accounts, and many others. (Remember, network services are generally provided by servers).
  • Internet-The school can provide network users with access to the internet.
  • Computing resources-A high quality printer that is installed in the network for whole campus can be used by instructor or student both.
  • Flexible Access-School networks allow students to access their information from connected devices throughout the school. Students can begin an assignment in their classroom, save part of it on a public access area of the network(Server).
  • Workgroup Computing-Software allows many users to work on a document or project concurrently. For example, educators located at various schools within a county could simultaneously contribute their ideas about new curriculum standards to the same document, spreadsheets, or website.


Disadvantages of Installing a Network in school

  • Expensive to Install-Large campus networks will be expensive in case of more computers Cabling, network cards, switches, routers, wireless access points, and software can get expensive, and the installation would certainly require the services of lab technicians who will handle the network.
  • Servers Fail-Although a network server is no more subject to failure than any other computer, when the files server “goes down” the entire network may come to stop.
  • Cables May Break- one broken cable can stop the entire network.
  • Security and compliance-Network security is very important. A school network should be subject to more strict security requirements than a corporate/company network, because of its chances of storing personal and confidential information of network users.
