The foundations of networking include:

  • Switches
  • Wireless access points
  • Bridges

Switches, routers, and wireless access points are the essential networking basics.

Switchers come in 2 types: None PoE, or PoE

So, what’s PoE?

PoE is an acronym for ‘Power over Ethernet’ which is a technology that lets network cables carry power to a device. Which many devices connected to the internet require power, such as IP cameras, Access Points, (WAPS), Internet bridges and so on.

It’s through these essential items, devices connected to your network such as computers, printers, mobile devices (phones/tablets) can communicate with one another and with other networks, such as the Internet.

Whats a wireless access point?

An access point connects to a wired router, switch, or hub via an Ethernet cable, and projects/boosts a Wi-Fi signal to a designated area.

Our ceiling/wall access point boasts dual band technology and can simultaneously connect equipment to your LAN on both the 5.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz channels.

A fast data rate of 750Mbs means it’s a great Access Point for heavy Wi-Fi uses, streaming media and video files or linking CCTV equipment to a network.

With a maximum of 90 connected concurrent devices it’s aimed at professional, domestic or commercial installations.

What’s a wireless link, (Bridge)?

A wireless link is a great way of connecting 1 location to another, such as a farmyard/stable to your home/office. Theses bridges come in 3 ranges, with 3 speeds.

  • Business which can transmit up to 2Km @ 900Mps (5.8Ghz)
  • Professional which can transmit up to 700M @ 450Mps (5.8Ghz)
  • Standard can transmit up to 700M @ 300Mps (2.4Ghz)

What’s the difference between 2.4 & 5.8Ghz?

The 2.4 GHz band provides more coverage at slower speeds. The 5 GHz band provides less coverage but transmits data at faster speeds.
