Tricky Home Networks


With the increasing amount of connected devices, wireless access is more important now than ever. A solid home network  is crucial for a reliable connection without interruption, but often time it is not so simple. Ideally we would be able to stream, download, surf the internet and connect our gaming consoles to the same network from anywhere in the home with out any hiccups, but as we know networks can be tricky.

Not all networks are created equal, and there are some connectivity issues we are routinely faced with.

Most of the issues in response to home networks are in terms of signal strength, or the WiFi coverage area. How frustrating when you realize you are set up in the dead zone of your own home and are forced to work around your spotty connection!

Bandwidth issues result in slow network performance which can truly turn simple tasks into a dragged out  process. With the amount of videos and audio we to stream bandwidth is a common issue that can surely deter our internet experience.

Lastly and most importantly, interference from adjacent networks can affect your  homenetworknetwork in a HUGE way, we want to mitigate these interference as much as possible.

Most readily available consumer grade network products don’t have the power and throughput needed to solve these issues of signal strength, bandwidth and interference. We now recommend commercial grade networking components because the residential products don’t have the capacity that our user devices demand. We currently use Cisco, Aruba, Pakedge and Ruckus commercial grade products as a more robust networking option for your home.
