The network infrastructure is usually provided to the CAT 5 /UTP standard, using RJ-45 connectors. Ethernet Hubs, Switches and Routers are installed in key positions to ensure maximum network speed and up-time. Glen Discovery Ltd has the ability to provide cabling for all the networks that we supply.
Wireless Networking technology is now technically mature and affordable enough to be a realistic option for many local-area networks. These are especially appropriate for sites in adjacent buildings, older offices (where cabling may prove to be a problem) and hazardous environments. Connecting your local network to the outside world can be achieved in number of different ways. ISDN, Cable, ADSL, DSL or dedicated communication lines can be used for high-speed access. Telephone lines may be used for dial-up access when other methods are not available.
