Network infrastructure for industrial communication are often diverse and complex. As companies become more sophisticated with their networks, it is necessary to build reliable infrastructure that they can grow with. When networks don’t deliver the necessary degree of reliability, the process is jeopardized resulting to unplanned downtime. But with a solid network installation plan, your system will perform as intended.

Wired Networks

A wired network connection involves cables which establish a connection to the Internet and other devices on the network. Data is transferred from one device to another or over the Internet using Ethernet cables.

When configured properly, wired networks are very reliable and stable. One reason for this is that the signal is not influenced by other connections. For example, if you have wireless networks that are close to one another, one signal could interfere with another which can compromise stability. Or, if you have walls or objects nearby, this has an impact on a wireless connection. A wired network connection is unaffected by these factors.

Wireless Networks

Wireless networks, on the other hand, operate on radio frequency or microwave signals. The radio signals allow wireless enabled devices to communicate with one another and the Internet without having to be connected to the network via an Ethernet cable.

One of the advantages of wireless networks is that it allows for more mobility and flexibility to access the network from any location using any type of wireless enabled device. There are no hassles with cables and all connectivity can be achieved without the limitations of physical cables. Plus, your office is neat and clean as the result of the absence of wires.

Both networks have its strengths and weaknesses. The choice of which type of network should you install depends on the unique needs and situation of your business. You may set an appointment with A Plus Cable Runners so we can properly the network needs of your business. Call us today!
