    Home Network Installation

    It used to be that computer networks were things found outside of the homes.  The public sector had them as well as the private sector.  Even twenty years ago, a lot of homes didn’t have a computer, much less an Internet connection.  However, nowadays, a connection to the Internet is pretty much required and the purpose that the Internet serves in the home has changed significantly.  Now, an Internet connection is necessary to improve the signal on your smartphones and internet devices, deliver streaming media, as well as the original uses of the Internet, to share information.  But what does this have to do with home networks and home network installation?

    Well according to this article excerpt from WIKIPEDIA.ORG: “A home network or home area network (HAN) is a type of local area network that develops from the need to facilitate communication and interoperability among digital devices present inside or within the close vicinity of a home. Devices capable of participating in this network–smart devices such as network printers and handheld mobile computers–often gain enhanced emergent capabilities through their ability to interact. These additional capabilities can then be used to increase the quality of life inside the home in a variety of ways, such as automation of repetitious tasks, increased personal productivity, enhanced home security, and easier access to entertainment. One of the primary drivers behind the establishment of this kind of network is the need to distribute residential Internet access to all internet capable devices in the home. Due to the effect of IPv4 address exhaustion, most Internet Service Providers provide only one WAN-facing IP address for each residential subscription. Therefore most homes require a device capable of network address translation (NAT) that can route packets between the public address visible to the WAN and private addresses of individual devices that share that public address. This router defines the boundary at which the service provider’s network stops and the home’s network begins. While it is possible for home networks to exist without connectivity to the outside world via a router, such topologies would have limited utility considering the bulk of current home network usage comes from home devices communicating with the WAN rather than with other home devices.

    Home Networks

    One benefit of installing a home network as covered above is improved signal on a mobile device. This alone makes installing a home network worth it. If you’re like most people you probably have areas of your home that don’t have the strongest signal strength. Which means you have a good chance of either dropping a call or sounding like your underwater.

    So, remember, that a home network is a very good way to share resources, just like its big brothers in the business world. So call a professional for home network installation.
