Office and Home Network Systems
For many businesses, the first computer network they need will be confined to a single building. This type of network is called a local area network (LAN). There are two common kinds of LAN: peer-to-peer and client/server.
There are also peer-to-peer office networks that connect two or more computers directly, allowing them to share files or programs. They are particularly suitable for collaborative work.
Client/server networks use one computer as a server - where you keep shared files and programs - which other PCs connect to. This central machine can be a normal PC, although it is best to use a powerful computer or a purpose-built server computer. Some security advantages of these client/server networks include are that: there are more efficient at backing up and handling data – for example users cannot modify files simultaneously; have the capacity of linking to different types of computers and they can support more users more reliably than a peer-to-peer network. Unlike peer-to-peer systems, a failure at a single point in a client/server network will not affect other computers on the network, as long as the server remains intact.
We also provide wireless networking services that have replaced much cabling requirements for a network. Wireless networks provide:
However, depending on the layout of your office, wireless signals can be slower and less reliable than cable connections.
We as well provide intercom systems which are two-way communication electronic devices that contain circuitry for the purpose of transmitting and receiving audio and/or video transmissions. Intercom allows a person speaking into a microphone to be heard on a speaker by people in a different room or area.
