Office Computer Networking in Telford
The vast majority of Telford office computer networks use BT or Virgin phone lines and routers.
A&A Computers has considerable experience of both (we have operated both BT Telford office networks and Virgin Telford office networks).
BT and Virgin routers use radically different systems to provide internet access.
Virgin routers use the DSL system. DSL uses dedicated ports and cabling to access the internet.
BT routers use ADSL. ADSL routers access the internet via a telephone line. Additionally, BT business and BT home networking - internet systems are very similar but with specific differences. BT Home Routers differ from BT Business Routers in numerous ways such as superior security features on a BT Business Router and BT business email. Eg; btconnect accounts use outlook.office365.com which is a Microsoft / BT business email system.
Over the next few months we will be expanding our Telford office computer network service and also expanding into other areas.
Telford Office Network Speed Issues
Please click above for larger image
Many - Telford Office Networks - Telford Business Networks were installed or setup more than 10 years ago and still use the original hardware (eg; network cables and network switches).
However; technology has improved over time and in many cases the old network hardware will be creating bottlenecks. An example of this will be network speed restrictions imposed by the switches. Virtually all modern computers are capable of communicating via a cabled network (ethernet connections) at 1000mb. However, many routers and most switches currently in use will only handle 10mb or 100md traffic (the switch will usually be labelled as 10/100). So; even if fibre internet is being used, access to the internet will be limited by the switch to 100mb or even 10mb.
The solution is to upgrade the network to 1000mb (1 gigabit). However; please note that incompatible cabling may also need to be replaced. This is because the cables need to be able to transfer data at 1000mb.
Out of hours (including weekend) installations available.
Please note; each network switch should be connected to a dedicated router port. Network switches should not be connected to each other.
How to Tell
Simply look at your network wall sockets (ethernet sockets). If they are labelled as Cat5 or Cat5e, they will allow a theoretical maximum transfer speed of 100mb (in reality this may be higher but could result in stability issues).
The sockets and cabling should probably be replaced with Cat6 sockets and cabling.
High Speed Routers
A Router will connect the network to the internet and typically controls all devices by assigning an IP address (Internet Protocol address) to all network devices. Therefore the router is a limiting factor and should be able to handle network traffic at 1000gb and high speed wireless.
A&A appreciate that it is often far more convenient to install upgrades etc "outside Office Hours". We therefore offer this facility in Telford at a cost of only £35 per day.
