We specialise in designing high-end home and business networking and Wi-Fi installations. Our secure home networking solutions use the latest technologies and cabling compliance to ensure the highest level of security, protect your privacy, ensuring that vulnerable smart devices, can’t be used to access your network.

A robust, reliable network is a must, so when designing your home or workspace we give consideration to the network topology. As a “Big Dog’ installer, Intelligent Abodes, are approved to supply and integrate Ruckus, which offers best in class performance, creating a mesh to support signal steering to give better connectivity where it is needed. The other important aspect to consider is security and your system is designed to stop unwanted users and prevent your network from becoming hackable.

Why use our secure network Wi-Fi

Simpler systems rely on the user realising a stronger network is available and physically switching. We create a robust, secure internal network, maximising the services available to the house or business – we use intelligent systems that manage the local area network to ensure you get maximum effectiveness from the wireless access points to support a powerful network. These systems automatically manage the Wireless Access Points, ensuring a seamlessly transfer between each point according to changing factors, such as available signal strength, interference, user mobility and requirements of other users, so our network cleverly responds to your wireless needs. This approach enables us to completely transform the user experience in remote properties which historically suffer from poor internet connections.

Why use structured cabling infrastructure

Having structured network cabling in every room enables the addition of multiple wireless access points with separate bandwidth on the network. This will ensure that portable devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops) will have fast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout the property whilst fixed devices are connected through a hardwired connection. Having a structured cabling network ensures one device cannot interfere or hamper the performance of another on your network.

Having a structured cabling infrastructure provides the following vital benefits:

  • The flexibility required to ensure a reliable and comprehensive Wi-Fi signal throughout your property.
  • Using a wired network connection for fixed devices and appliances saves wireless bandwidth for truly mobile devices like phones or tablets which really need the wireless capability.
  • It offers high speed and reliability to a hardwired connection, which will always outperform a wireless one in terms of reliability and speed, no matter how good wireless technology is these days
  • Good reliable performance for fixed devices such as smart TVs where the connection is always on and never drops, nor is it shared with other mobile devices.
  • Vital connection to your network is not impacted by other devices connected via Wi-Fi. So, a streamed film on a tablet could impact someone working from home and trying to connect to the office.
