In the past year, everything was happening at home – virtually and digitally. Work, school, shopping, and entertainment were all transformed into home activities, with the common thread being connections to the internet to communicate, share, and get things done.
All those activities from home put strains on network connectivity like never before. From work zoom meetings to interactive school e-learning platforms to streaming video – all at the same time – many experienced annoying freezes, dropped calls, and slow responses that hampered getting through the day.
Fortunately, there is a way to keep your Reno, NV home connected in the fast lane, and it’s not all about just increasing your internet broadband speed. Keep reading below to see how commercial quality networking solutions can deliver the robust connectivity you need, all day, every day.
Many homes rely on equipment provided by their internet provider (ISP). These solutions typically package an "all-in-one" solution with a modem and router in one piece of equipment. They tend to be sufficient for the average home and the average environment. However, if your home is not average in layout, size, or construction, you might find that you get subpar networking performance in many parts of your house.
Wireless connection performance is one of the most common complaints we see from clients. The average ISP solution or consumer-grade router might work well in a few rooms but not the farthest reaches of your house. One way of fixing this issue is with additional wireless access points installed for every 1,000 to 1,500 square feet of a property to ensure strong and stable connections wherever you might roam.
Not all networking equipment is built the same way. Sierra Integrated Systems works with commercial-quality solutions that provide better performance, capacity, and longevity for top performance. Solutions from companies like Ruckus and Araknis Networks are designed with advanced hardware and software features that go beyond ISP and consumer solutions. In particular, stronger firewalls add a layer of security, traffic prioritization ensures video streaming, zoom calls, and smart home devices all get the bandwidth they need, and remote management and updating keep the system online and trouble-free.
Networking technology doesn’t stand still, and a solution from even 4-5 years ago may not cut it in your home for everything you need today. Newer wireless standards like Wi-Fi 6, increasingly available in the latest devices and networking solutions, can provide the level of performance you’ll need now and in the future. Wi-Fi 6 equipment offers greater capacity and speeds for handling multiple streams simultaneously, ensuring that your busy home stays connected for work, education, and play.
Ensure that your home stays connected in the fast lane. Sierra Integrated Systems can design and install the commercial-grade network your home needs for today’s and tomorrow’s needs. Contact us here or use the chatbox below to connect with us right away. We look forward to working with you!
