Home Broadband

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasingly able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.
The more devices you have in the home, it is worth considering connecting non portable devices by cables and greater wireless coverage and speed for portable devices.

Wireless AX (WiFi 6) Products

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasingly able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.

These routers are based on the 802.11ax wireless standard (Wi-Fi 6E / Wi-Fi 6) and offer greater speed and range than previous 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) routers. They feature either dual-band (2.4GHz / 5GHz) or tri-band (2.4GHz / 5GHz / 6GHz) capability for segregating device connections for better performance, although it is important to remember that quoted Mbps speeds per bandwidth cannot be combined.

Broadband Routers - Wireless AC

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasingly able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.

These routers are based on the 802.11ac wireless standard (Wi-Fi 5) and offer greater speed and range than previous 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4) routers. They feature dual-band (2.4GHz / 5GHz) capability for segregating device connections for better performance, although it is important to remember that quoted Mbps speeds per bandwidth cannot be combined.

Home Mesh WiFi Broadband Routers & Accessories

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasingly able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.

These routers are designed for the larger home where coverage from a standard router access point may be insufficient. Mesh access points work to create a more expansive coverage area by working together to reduce dead spots and create more consistent coverage. Overall speed, however will still be governed by the wireless standard the system is based on - either 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4).

Network Cables - CAT-5

Network cables feature RJ45 connectors and are compatible with all common network enabled devices such as as PCs, workstations, servers, network switches and routers to create networks.

Cat-5 or Cat-5e (enhanced) cables can support up to 2.5GB/s throughput at 100MHz over a maximum distance of 100m.

Network Cables - CAT-6

Network cables feature RJ45 connectors and are compatible with all common network enabled devices such as as PCs, workstations, servers, network switches and routers to create networks.

Cat-6 or Cat-6a (augmented) cables can support up to 5GB/s throughput at 250MHz over a maximum distance of 100m.

Antennas / Aerials / Accessories

Wireless access points (WAPs) are standalone devices designed to be connected to a wired router or plug socket in the case of HomePlug WAPs, to provide wireless access for portable devices such as laptops and smart phones. In the home access points are usually built in a broadband router, however in business separate access points are common as they offer flexibility of placement (often featuring PoE technology) and better coverage when multiple units are deployed.

Wireless access points usually feature detachable antennas so alternative more specialist ones can be fitted. These are either for covering wider areas, or transferring a wireless signal over greater distances.

Wireless Adapters - PCI / PCI-E / M.2

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasing able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.

These devices are for converting PCs or workstations to wireless connectivity via a PCIe slot, as this is rarely standard on desktop computers where wired Ethernet network connectivity is the norm. The wireless speed of any adapter will vary depending on the wireless standard it is based on - either 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4).
