A Pro and a Con of Mesh Networks

A-Pro-and-a-Con-of-Mesh-Networks

Routers are Not the Only Way to Go When it Comes to Home Networking

When it comes to home network setups, routers are usually the first thing you think of. However, they are not the only option for connecting your devices to the internet. A popular alternative that is quickly gaining popularity is mesh networks.

In a mesh network, there’s no central hub like a router that deals with the traffic caused by your devices. Instead, all of your devices actually talk to each other. A mesh network is all about cooperation.

They are many advantages to having a mesh network, but there are also some cons. At Ratio AV, we will help you make an informed decision on whether a mesh network is right for you.

The Challenges and Opportunities of Cord-Cutting in 2020

The-Challenges-and-Opportunities-of-Cord-Cutting-in-2020

Cord-cutting has gotten simpler in recent years, but it means a strong home wireless network is more important than ever

If you’re like most people in America, you can’t stand your cable company. Cable providers like Comcast and Time Warner Cable are some of the most loathed companies in the country, and generally for good reason. In many cases, customer service is abysmal, prices are high with no competition, and you’re not even guaranteed to get the network speeds you’re paying for.

Thankfully, it’s easier than ever to ditch your cable by “cord-cutting.” Streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu, along with digital TV providers like Sling that don’t use the usual cable TV infrastructure, can provide endless hours of entertainment, often at a significantly lower price than cable.

This does not mean, however, that cutting the cord is always easy. If you’re relying on the Internet for your entertainment, you need a network that can handle all the data you’ll be streaming around your home. This is particularly true of your home wireless network, and today we’ll look at both the opportunities and challenges of cord-cutting if you live in Utah’s Park City region.
