Hosted Network Total Cost of Ownership
Owning, operating and managing a LAN or a WAN is not easy task financially ormentally. The abundance of technology choices is confusing enough. Not to mention licensing, support, maintenance, installation and configuration.
The up front cost of acquisition is just the beginning. When you calculate your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) using the Gartner model, a network user will cost you $4,500.00 to $8,000.00 annually. This model takes into account several categories.
There are tangible costs like software, training, hardware, asset administration, and downtime. The intangible costs are management costs like maintenance, disaster prevention and disaster recovery.
