Data cabling is a modern service available to consumers and businesses that ensures a more reliable network. When considering this installation at your home, there are a number of things you should know to get the most out of your system. Whether wanting to link your home systems or ensure a more reliable connection, read on to learn more.

A More Reliable Connection

Once the physical dimensions of the network have been installed and are up and running, it can significantly improve the reliability of your internet connection. This is due to the network connections happening through the copper wiring, taking away any concerns about interfering signals or wireless channels that your broadband router transmits on. One of the disadvantages of wireless is that it can struggle to serve the whole of your house with a consistent bandwidth, whereas a physical connection is far more capable of sustaining a consistent link over time.

Wired Internet Improves Internet Speed

The majority of the time a wired Ethernet connection will be faster than a WIFI connection. When you’re connected with a cable you do not need to worry about a weak signal dropping your connection or interfering signals which can reduce your broadband speed. With data cabling services you could easily install a much faster and more efficient network. WIFI will struggle to get near these speeds. It is not impossible though with some wireless systems.

Improves WIFI Coverage 

Physical wired networks installed within your home can also be used to improve your home WIFI range. If you have areas of your house where the connection is poor an Ethernet cable could be installed and linked to a wireless access point. This then allows for a wireless connection from that point which can greatly increase the coverage in your home.

Offers Greater Security

One thing which may be attractive to some is the added layer of security wired networks can offer. Providing that you are not broadcasting an open wireless connection at some other point in the network. This would ensure that to access your network you would have to be in physical contact with it via cable. It is important to note that installing wired internet will not protect you from hackers acting remotely.

With data cabling, there are many benefits to going the wired network way. Offering a far more dependable solution it ensures that you can always have a physical connection to your internet and network. Contact us today to find out more about these services.
