NETWORKING & WIRELESS
Getting Your Devices Connected
A home area network (HAN) or small office network (SOHO) is a type of computer network that facilitates communication among devices within the close vicinity. Devices capable of participating in this network include network printers, mobile phones, computers, media libraries, security cameras, thermostats, or televisions. These devices often gain enhanced emergent capabilities through their ability to interact. These additional capabilities can be used to increase the quality of life inside the home or office in a variety of ways, such as automation of repetitive tasks, increased personal productivity, enhanced home security, and easier access to entertainment.

If you need a reliable and fast network look no further than dedicated lines to your most critical end user devices. Wireless is often used for quick and easy setups but often create bottlenecks due to the available wireless bandwidth when shared between multiple devices.
Ethernet Technology has existed since 1973 and has many benefits over Wireless. Examples include less interference, faster speeds and lower latency. Throughout the years Ethernet has had improvements from Fast Ethernet (1995) offering speeds up to 100 Mbps to Gigabit Ethernet (1998) offering speeds up to 1000 Mbps.
