Although our client had the right cabling infrastructure but he did not have the right wired or wireless systems or configuration to allow him to use the internet with ease, or to use systems that rely upon the network like Sonos.
- We replaced the existing router with a Draytek router which allowed us to configure multiple incoming internet connections. The property struggled with very low internet connections from different providers so we combined 3 connections and load balanced these to ensure that enough bandwidth was provisioned for the client and his wife and core systems;
- We upgraded all existing network switches to Cisco switches
- We deployed a Ruckus Wi-Fi system to provide coverage across the main house and the outbuildings. There was a ‘Folly’ at the end of the garden which needed coverage so we used a Ruckus P300 point-to-point kit to extend the house network to this area. The Ruckus P300 extenders can extend the network and maintain a bandwidth throughput of up 10 100MBps to a distance of 8km!
