IT Solution Home

We can connect everything in your home, quickly, reliably and securely.
Every modern tech connected home has specific requirements for network layout and speed. We will conduct a survey of your home and design a network to suit your needs.
Our site visit will allow us to provide you with a plan of how to maximise network speed, whether through Wi-Fi, Ethernet or the Internet.

Installation results in cable trunking throughout a home and located to a single communications cabinet anywhere in your home. Here we install the core of the network components for centralised, reliable connectivity.

With the arrival of Fibre to the home, and increasing popularity of streaming services such as Netflix and Showmax, the need for robust and reliable home networking system has become more and more apparent.

Most of the routers provided by the ISPs do not have the reliability or processing power to handle this increasing load. To address this shortcoming, we can supply commercial grade network equipment that is designed to handle this increased load, and allows quality of service to give priority to the services you need e.g. streaming having priority over torrents.

Benefits Of A Good Network

  • Improved network and internet speed
  • Full-home High Speed Wi-Fi Coverage
  • Shared storage systems (NAS, SAN)
  • Low-ping gaming
  • Whole-home audio
  • Video and document streaming
  • Support for complete bandwidth usage of Fibre to the home

A solid home network is a vital preparation for the future of technology. Services such as Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, and more can become crippled by network congestion. A high-speed structured network is the first step to having an ever-expanding network to support anything all the way up to full home automation.

In many homes, pulling cable to connect devices is not feasible, wireless is the preferred means of connection. Slow Wi-Fi and poor coverage are a big issue

We install access points to cover the whole house. Depending on the size of the house multiple access points may be required .

What is an Access Point?

An access point is a device that creates a wireless local area network, or WLAN, usually in an office or large building. An access point connects to a wired router, switch, or hub via an Ethernet cable, and projects a Wi-Fi signal to a designated area. For example, if you want to enable Wi-Fi access in your company’s reception area but don’t have a router within range, you can install an access point near the front desk and run an Ethernet cable through the ceiling back to the server room.

What is a Range Extender?

As its name implies, a range extender lengthens the reach of an existing Wi-Fi network. Since range extenders connect wirelessly to Wi-Fi routers, they must be placed where the Wi-Fi router’s signal is already strong, not in the location of the actual dead spot. For instance, if your router is in the basement of a two-story building, installing a range extender on the ground floor (where coverage from the Wi-Fi router is still strong) will eliminate potential dead zones on the second floor.

Access points, on the other hand, can handle over 60 simultaneous connections each. By installing access points throughout the office, users can roam freely from room to room without experiencing network interruptions. As they move through the building, their devices shift seamlessly from one access point to the next without dropping the connection—they won’t even realize they’re switching between networks.

Access points can be installed anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable. Newer models are also compatible with Power over Ethernet Plus, or PoE+ (a combination Ethernet and power cord), so there is no need to run a separate power line or install an outlet near the access point.

Sometimes pulling a cable to an access point is not feasible, in such cases  we look at Wireless Mesh Networks

Mesh Networks  overcome the hurdle of  large rooms where pulling a cable is not possible . They are easy to set up and require very little configuration .

They are self healing and easily expandable, by adding more nodes they allow seamless roaming throughout the network, making it easy to scale up any location.
