Network Connectivity For Your Home:

Audio/video components are becoming more advanced and computer-like. Instead of having a piece of gear that has a limited lifespan, many new AV preamps, TV's, DVD players and receivers now have the ability to have their software and firmware upgraded. Software-based upgrades can help prevent obsolescence in the future and make your life easier in the present, so that you’ll be glad you have a network connection in your home theater system and other devices. Imagine you have just bought the biggest, baddest new TV, but six months later, you are at your wits’ end because it is acting strangely. It turns out that the manufacturer found a major glitch in the operating system and is offering a replacement version of the software. It is now possible to allow the manufacturer or your AV installer to access the gear in your network remotely via an Internet connection to perform the software reinstall. Without a network connection in your system, you may have to remove the device and lug it over to your computer to download the new software, or even worse, send it back to the dealer or manufacturer. Consider the fact that home automation systems from companies like AT&T, Comcast, Time warner and others currently allow dealers to control their clients’ systems remotely. The ability to have remote access to your individual components for installs, upgrades and troubleshooting is vital.

The time has come that copy-protected HDTV feeds of current feature films can be piped into your home theater on a pay-per-view basis. Video and audio post-production houses use high-speed Internet connections to transfer video and sound files back and forth to various locations around the world, and many movie theaters with digital projection systems are doing this as well.  Movies and television content is now distributed this way, you’ll be glad that you planned ahead with a network connection installed in your home.

Office & Business Network: Determining the Best Foundation:

When building a office & business network, it’s important to determine the best foundation for your company’s needs. The following tips should help you determine which type of network you need.

  • Investing in business-grade switches and/or routers for reliable communications. Consumer or home networking products can’t keep pace with the challenges of business growth.
  • Invest in a network that can grow over time, so you can add features and functionality as needed. Additions to consider include video surveillance, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), integrated messaging, and wireless applications.
  • Making sure switches and routers are easy to install, use, and manage. Example: Switches with in-line power allow you to place equipment, such as wireless access points, anywhere there's a network wall jack. You’ll be spared the trouble and expense of installing additional electrical outlets or wires to power the devices.
  • Make sure your network is designed with reliability and redundancy in mind. This provides the business continuity you’ll need to bounce back quickly from unforeseen circumstances.

Office & Business Networ: The Difference Between Switches and Routers:

The two most essential pieces of equipment you will need in a office and business network is switches and routers. Though they look similar, the two devices perform different functions in a network.

  • Switches connect multiple devices (computers, printers, servers) on the same network within a building or campus. A switch enables connected devices to share information and talk to each other. An office network isn’t possible without switches to tie devices together.
  • Routers tie multiple networks together. When building a office network, you’ll need one or more routers. A router connects your networked computers to the Internet. This enables all connected computers to share one single Internet connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best route for your information to travel. It connects your business to the world, protects information from security threats, and can even decide which computers get priority over others.
