Let's face it....these days networks ARE the backbone of any modern home's AV equipment. We always start all of our designs with the network, as almost every device we install lives and breathes on the local area network. We use reliable well designed products like Cisco, Araknis, Meraki, & Ruckus, that we know how to program and configure to keep the AV gear running fluidly without hiccups. We design all of our system without the "all in one box" mentality and use dedicated modems, routers, network switches, and auto roaming WAP's (wireless access points). We also have the ability to remotely monitor and manage these network systems to keep your system optimized(firmware updates, etc.) at all times. This technology also us allows to remotely verify if any outages are cause by the internet service provider, or are issues within the premise itself to reduce unneeded service calls.
