A smart home relies on connectivity to run the basic functions and provide entertainment, news, and remote work. It is fair to say that home networking services are an essential utility; without them, you are in the dark – unconnected in your home and from the world at large.
While we recognize the importance of a stable and secure connection, many homeowners continue to add devices on a whim, from IoT streaming sticks to multiple mobile devices and even appliances. As a result, your network can become bogged down, slow, and may be operating with outdated security firmware.
With the official release of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) in late 2019, wireless access became faster, more efficient, and much more secure. Are you intrigued by how much better it can be in your Park City, UT home? Keep reading below to learn more.
If you take a quick look around your home, it becomes clear that it is filled with technology, much of it chattering away on the network or reaching out to servers on the internet. On average, luxury homes have 25-30 devices connected, with just over half of them used to stream content.
The intense data demands of services like Netflix, Disney+, Deezer, or TIDAL can quickly overwhelm standard wireless routers, requiring a reliance on running hardwire through your walls. Wi-Fi 6 is specifically designed to prioritize streaming packets, enabling it to deliver higher throughput to four times the connections of previous versions.
Today it is almost impossible to find a home, business, or street corner that does not have a wireless access point. While immensely convenient, the sheer volume of RF signals in the air around you can slow down your home.
The newest wireless transceivers resolve this by ‘coloring’ or tagging the devices in your rooms with a unique identifier. Now your network only listens to the units in your spaces, ignoring all others. This feature increases download speeds, reduces latency, and prevents bandwidth piracy from unauthorized devices. In addition, the system can be used to separate your work from home office requirements from the rest of the house and paves the way for true 8K video capabilities.
Security is always a top concern when using wireless devices. Our mobile phones, tablets, and streaming products transmit incredibly personal information into the air where nefarious individuals could be waiting.
With the introduction of WPA3 as the standard security for Wi-Fi 6, your home network just got much more secure. The protocol utilizes a boosted cryptographic scheme that furnishes you with enterprise-class protection.
A reliable and secure home network comes from an expert design and installation. You want instant access to the services and security you rely on. Are you ready for an upgrade? Connect with us by calling 801-996-3146 or fill out an online contact form to start the conversation.
