Wired Networks

You can’t beat the reliability of a structured cabling system

Structured cabling systems

Data networks are no longer just for large organisations. They are now common place in most business’s and the average modern New Zealand home. A wired network has many advantages over a wireless network such as speed and reliability.

In today’s society, it is becoming increasingly common to “stream” large video files across networks. Most TV’s and home amplifiers now have a network connection, this allows you to watch downloaded material on your big screen television, or listen to your music collection or internet radio stations on your home stereo. of course, none of this would be possible if you don’t have the network infrastructure in place

The type of system that makes all of this possible, and gives you flexibility is called a structured cabling system. In simple terms, a structured cabling system allows you to (among other things) plug in a computer or a television into any outlet and share media with other computers or televisions on your network

Structured cabling systems are mainstream in new houses now, and almost all business’s have a network system of some type. Our techs are able to visit your premises and advise on options available and the benefits you could achieve by installing such a system

Do I really need a wired network?

Rule of thumb – if your device has a network port, then you should use it

Any servers, NAS drives, NVR’s or desktop computers should all be hard wired if its possible to do so. If your TV has a network port, then you should hard wire that too

The simple reality is, you can’t beat the reliability and performance of a hard wired connection. This needs to be weighed up against the feasability of installing a cable to the device, but if you can, then you should

Our techs will undertake a site survey and then sit down with you and discuss the options. Once we agree on what devices should be hard wired, we then need to determine if we should use Cat6 or Cat6A.

Our techs install a product called Molex. We are certified by the manafacturer and can draw on them for technical support and 20+ year warrantys for those corporate installs where its requested
