Today, businesses and homeowners alike depend on efficient computer networking and fast internet communications. Computer networking installation involves wiring and connecting all your home or office’s devices onto a local network, making productivity and communication effortless. If your computer cabling hasn’t been updated recently, it may be time to talk to a qualified electrical contractor about whether it’s still meeting your networking needs.
Computer Cabling Basics
Rapid advances in technology mean we’re all enjoying greater processing power that’s revolutionizing the way we live and work. At the core of any network is the cabling infrastructure, the system that ties it all together and determines the speeds at which your environment functions.
Proper computer cabling increases the overall efficiency of your network. Is your cabling 10 years old or older? If so, it probably isn’t supporting the traffic you’re generating. Your electrician can help you implement a more powerful cabling upgrade.
Benefits of Upgrading for Businesses
To compete in a digital world means keeping up with new technologies as they emerge. Problems that may be holding you back—and that can be addressed by upgrading old cabling—include:
- Transfer impedance
- Propagation delay, or the time it takes for a signal to run from one end of a circuit to the other
- Insertion loss due to cable temperature increases
- Return loss, or loss of power in the signal returned when a transmission line is disrupted.
Keep in mind that while upgrading a computer cabling system is a great investment, if it only complies with today’s standards you may end up having to upgrade again in two or three years. Ask us about why using quality cabling, hardware, and components gives your business the greatest flexibility in handling future needs.
Benefits of Upgrading for Homeowners
From messaging to searching for new recipes, most people use wireless connectivity while at home. But there are times that hardwiring is more efficient, particularly when streaming online content. Wireless is fast, but the farther a user is from the main router, the lower the signal will be. Sometimes people use Wi-Fi extenders, which can definitely help. But if you want consistent service, Cat5 and Cat6 cabling both offer high rates of transfer and create a solid connection to all your home’s devices.
Hardwiring your home also eliminates any chance of interference from neighboring wireless routers. The result? Better consistency in your data transfer and improved security because your wireless signal isn’t being broadcast to everyone. Videogaming systems also perform better, with response time speeded up.
