Gigabit Internet is the current, next-generation internet service that delivers speeds up to 40 times faster than the typical home connection. With an average speed of 1,000 megabits per second, you can download high-resolution movies in just a few minutes, join video conferences in ultra HD, update your smartphone’s operating system in seconds, and more. Unlike traditional copper wire cables, the fiber optic cables allow the transmission of extensive data at incredibly high speeds, providing users faster network speed and higher bandwidth.
Even though there have been massive advancements in regards to wireless networks, a hardwired network is still the faster and more reliable option. If you are looking for a rock-solid network, then wiring your house or business is the best way to go.
Types of Hardwired Computer Network
Modern hardwired networks are typically designed using three cabling options, i.e., Cat 5e or Cat 6 and Cat 7
- Cat5e cable ( Category 5e ): it’s a pair of twisted copper cable which can deliver speeds of up to a gigabit.
- Cat 6 cable ( Category 6): it’s a pair of twisted standardized cable which can provide network speeds of up to 10 gigabits.
- Cat 7 ( Category 7 ): was recently introduced to the market and what makes it distinguishable is the shielded cable that significantly reduces crosstalk.
- Fiber: Also known as optical-fiber cable, fiber optic cable provides a new alternative for networking. Unlike the Cat cables, fiber optic cable contains thin strands instead of copper and can reach long distances.
Streaming Media and Home Networking
Currently, video and audio streaming is the top way which people use to consume content. But streaming content is only effective if your home network is strong enough. Generally, streaming usually puts any home network through intense strain. The effect is even more noticeable in case there are multiple users on the same network.
Wireless networks have different requirements and levels of complexity, and this means that there are various routers which have been designed to cater to these unique set of features. Although Wi-Fi priorities for different homes are not the same, some of the common factors that people look for when it comes to Wi-Fi routers include support, security, scalability and connectivity options. Outlined below are the top 3 business grade Wifi routers for large homes.
