There are lots of different devices that need access to your network these days. Where computers used to be the only devices that needed to be on your network, now its iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, Blu-ray players, TVs, XBoxes, etc. All these devices are of limited use if they can’t connect effectively to a network. Without a reliable network, you won’t be able to access your email, collaborate with your team, backup your systems, access Netflix and more. Because of the almost invisible nature of our networks these days, too often users tend to overlook their network. Until it doesn’t work as well as they need it to.

Best Practices for Networking
A major part of our success in designing and implementing solid networks comes from our insistence on the use of best practices. This means specifying high quality hardware and wiring. It means working with vendors and contractors whose approach mirrors our own. It means using configurations and technologies we know will work the first time. It means establishing security to keep you and your data safe online. The result is a solid, trust worthy network that truly does disappear in daily use.

All wiring is not created equal, and in order to ensure maximum throughput and consistent connections, network wiring requires specific skills and equipment.

Wired vs. WiFi Networks
In spite of the popularity and convenience of wireless networks, there is still a place for wired networking in most environments. A properly configured wired network can improve the performance of a wifi network and increase the reliability of all devices needing access to the network. The configuration and placement of wireless access points is equally important and we have the experience to enable you to get dependable wifi access wherever you need it.
Do It While Building or Renovating
The best time to build or upgrade a network is during new construction or renovations. Working with our recommended networking vendors, we can specify a robust network infrastructure which will provide enough flexibility and room for growth for the foreseeable future. If you (or someone you know) is planning a renovation or new construction, contact us early in the design process to be sure to get exactly the network you need.

The explosion of Apple’s amazing iPads and iPhones has created huge demands on most wireless networks. Many computer users a also relying on laptops as their primary machine. Both of these trends require that your wireless network be configured to securely offer Internet access to all of your devices as fast as possible.
