The IT field has a lot of big and confusing verbiage, much like your doctor. Most poeple come to us because they have a great idea or a current problem they need resolved. Unlike your doctor it shouldn't cost an arm and leg to get results. Let us take care of your digital life so you can take care of the important one.
An ISP (Internet service provider) is a company that provides individuals and other companies access to the Internet and other related services such as Web site building and virtual hosting.
Short for modulator-demodulator. A modem is a device or program that enables a computer to transmit data over, for example, telephone or cable lines. Computer information is stored digitally, whereas information transmitted over telephone lines is transmitted in the form of analog waves.
A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISP's network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect.
A network switch is networking hardware that connects devices on a computer network by using packet switching to receive, and forward data to the destination device. A network switch is a multiport network bridge that uses media access control addresses to forward data at the data link layer of the OSI model.
Now that you understand the basics of your network, lets take a look at a few key features most home and small business networks have.
A wireless access point is a device that creates Wi-Fi from a wired network, allowing a Wi-Fi enabled device to connect to a wired network. Without a WAP you would need to use cables to connect your devices to the internet. A lot of Wi-fi enabled devices today, such as mobile phones, do not have an Ethernet port for wired connections, so a WAP is a vital part of your home network. It either comes as a separate device that plugs into your router, or is inbuilt into the router itself.
If you have Wi-Fi blackspots in your home, or are lucky enough to own a big house, you may need a Wi-Fi repeater to extend the coverage of your wireless network. These devices receive the existing Wi-Fi signal from your router, amplify it and then pass on the boosted signal to the previously unreached areas of your house.
A gateway is a device that routes traffic between two separate networks. The best example of a gateway within your home network is your router. This acts as a gateway between your own personal network and your broadband provider’s network.
Internet of Things (IoT) or Automation Systems are predominately seen in smart homes but are also a growing part of general home networking. These systems connect all the smart home tech together so they can communicate with each other. This allows them to automate their functions under pre-programmed rules. An example of this would be a smart thermometer picking up the temperature has dropped in your bedroom. The automation system would then instruct the smart heating to turn on in that one room.
