Get the Speed You Need with a Professional Network Installation
A High-Performance Network is Essential in the Modern Home
Do you ever think about how many devices in your home require a network and internet connection? Intuitively, you know your smartphone, tablets, computers, and laptops are all connected. But do you think about your TVs, streamers like Apple TV or Roku, smart speakers, and home automation gear? In 2020, the average number of connected devices in the home was estimated at around 10. That rose sharply in the pandemic to 25, and in 2023 estimates range up to 50 devices in homes. So chances are, you have more than you think in your Cherry Hill, NJ home.
Have you thought about your home network’s capacity to support all these devices? Most people don’t unless they experience a problem. It may be the stuttering 4K video on a TV or the video call with freezing or mismatched audio and video. In today's world, good network performance is almost as essential as electricity and water in the home. However, if you're still relying on the equipment and installation that came from your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your network may not be keeping up. Keep reading below to see how a professional network installation company can help.

The Problem with ISP Solutions
Many homes rely on the ISP solution that comes with their service. While the equipment works, it tends to be a generic solution for the average home size, layout, and needs. If your home is anything but average, this solution may not cut it. You might suffer from a lack of capacity that translates to slower speeds, dead spots for Wi-Fi in part of your home, dropped video calls at the wrong time, and more.
We recommend commercial-grade equipment and professional network design and installation. Why? Because your home network needs will only grow with so many devices and appliances being connected. Think about smart lighting, locks, security cameras, alarms, and much more. Commercial grade equipment excels at two levels, both in hardware and software. Commercial-level vendors like Araknis offer hardware that is built to a higher standard than typical ISP-grade setups, lasting longer and offering more serviceability than consumer hardware. On the software side, commercial solutions offer more robust software, frequent updates for security and performance, and higher configurability for greater customizability for your specific needs.
