Techbuyer Launches Online Network Configurator

The Techbuyer technical team Jun 09, 2021

Looking for a fast way to identify the correct networking switch for your requirements? Good news – our new online Network Configurator does just that.

Why did we create this tool?

Often limited to single brands and largely focussed on price, current online network configurators and switch selectors can be over complicated and offer little functional comparison. Our solution enables the user to compare cross-brand switches by narrowing required functional specification points within a simple to use interface.

In other words, we make finding the best switch for your organisation as hassle-free as possible.

Who is it designed for?

We created this tool with IT, networking, and data centre specialists in mind, as well as IT sales teams. This is because having worked closely with a wide variety of businesses and public sector organisations over the past 15 years, some of the most frequently asked questions we hear involve computer networking. We could see that a need was there and decided to come up with a solution.

How does it work?

Step 1: Choose Functionality

First refine your search by seven factors: management, port-interface, the number of ports, features, uplink speed. We have included information points next to every factor for some extra guidance.

Step 2: View Recommendations

Once you have chosen your desired factors, our tool will filter down the results to the most applicable switch(es) for your specific requirements. This is much easier than scrolling to find what you need.

Step 3: Review your options

Simply click on the product and then ‘Product Details’ to see further information about our switches.

So, I’ve chosen my switch… What’s next?

Once you are happy with your chosen product, you can easily place your order online within minutes. Every IT system and part we provide includes a three year warranty, meaning you are guaranteed excellent reliability and system uptime.

Or if you have any questions about your chosen switch or would like to discuss your specific IT requirements with us in more detail, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We are rated five-star for our customer support and always offer accurate, up-to-date IT advice.
