We have been building networks of computers since the mid 1990s. In that time a lot has changed. There was no Broadband then – if you wanted more than the standard 56 kbps modem, you could get an ISDN2 line installed which would give you a measly 128 kbps. Today Virgin’s service offers speeds more than 1000 times faster – imagine if the automotive industry had changed as much!
Today networking technology is key to everyday life, not just business. We all take for granted the fact that we can order our shopping online and have it delivered when it’s convenient.
Gone are the days when you would have to queue at the bank to write a counter cheque to withdraw your money – now we can just log in to our bank accounts – whenever, wherever.
Normally a company’s network goes through organic growth as a business expands. It starts with a PC or two, a couple of mobile phones, a printer and a router. Over the next couple of years, the equipment is likely to double, along with the need for network storage.
The result is that the network is unplanned and not as efficient as it could be.
Blue Box can design and install your network with the future in mind, planning for managed expansion.
Leave the data flow to us. We will ensure that all your devices: computers, mobile phones, tablets, printers, TVs and storage devices all talk to each other – and the internet – as they should.
Hardwired networking is still the most reliable way to transport data. If you are setting up an office or relocating, contact us to plan the best possible layout of the office, junction points, patch panels, wall and floor sockets.
We can liaise directly with your electricians or provide the expertise.
Wireless networking is taken for granted today. Blue Box can ensure that your business does not have frustrating ‘black spots’.
There are Wireless Access Points, range extenders, boosters and repeaters to name a few of the pieces of equipment you can use to enhance your network. The question is which ones do you use. New equipment is coming to market all the time and our favourites, at the moment, are Cisco Systems and Ubiquiti Networks, at the point of writing we feel Ubiquiti are a nose in front.
What we do is Mesh your network. The traditional network consists of a series of linked devices one talking to another, if one link in the chain fails the whole thing fails. A Mesh has one talking to many to access the fastest route to the internet, if one device fails a different route is taken. If there are areas that get no reception or poor reception we can install Access Points and then add them to the Mesh. More information video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2tOOPwVjxw
