We can run cables to help you get the most out of your computer network.
Whether you are moving to a new office, moving your office desks around or want to upgrade your existing network to get faster network speeds, GTS can help provide the best solution for your networking needs. Depending on your specific requirements, we can run CAT5/6 or Fibre cables to link your workstations together on a cabled network that gives you the highest speeds possible.
Wired v Wireless Networks
Although having a wireless network is sometimes easier to install, we would always recommend opting for a wired network wherever possible. Of course, this depends greatly on the positions of your workstations, and sometimes it makes more sense to install a wireless network, but for most offices with fixed position workstations a wired network is the optimum choice.
Network cables give you the fastest speeds possible across the network, whereas the speed of a wireless network depends on a number of factors such as the type of router, distance between the router and computer, any obstacles such as walls, and so on.
A cabled network is generally more reliable too, which is a major concern for businesses. It’s not uncommon for wireless networks to suddenly fail and require a restart of the router, or worse a whole new router.
Finally another reason for us recommending a wired network is security. Wireless networks by their definition are available to be picked up by any computer or device that is in range. Although they are password protected and encrypted (or at least they should be!) it’s a lot easier for someone to gain unauthorised access to your wireless network than your wired network.
We can help assess your cabling requirements and advise you further on the best solution for you.
