FAQ Section

What are the 3 main types of wireless networks?

Local Area Computer Networks (LAN)

Local area computer networks (LAN) are typically found in residences, schools, universities, organisations and hospitals. LANs connect computers, printers and other peripheral devices in a limited area through links. They can also include a number of wireless network products or devices including firewalls. 

As they are localised, data transmission speeds are often faster in comparison to other types of networks

Wide Area Networks (WAN)

Wide area networks (WAN) are a wireless networking system made up of a collection of smaller LAN networks, but unlike LANs, they are not restricted to geographical areas. WANs can transfer data over thousands of kilometres - meaning they can travel over countries or the entire world. This large transfer of data means that they are typically slower than LANs. 

Wide area networks can be either public or private, and are generally used by internet providers, business and governments. 

Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN)

Metropolitan area networks (MAN) are considered a smaller version of a WAN, but larger than a LAN. As in the name, they connect computers and services within a metropolitan area, whether that is a single city or a large area within a city - it typically covers any where between 5km and 50km of space. 

What is TP Link used for?

A TP Link allows you to expand your home network or internet connection without having to purchase a brand new router. Products such as switches, adapters, range extenders and mesh wifi work to strengthen your WiFi connection, eliminate dead zones around your space and reduce interuptions to your internet access. 

What is a Ubiquiti used for?

In instances such as large cafes or office space where WiFi needs to travel over a larger space, or there is significantly more network traffic than inside a home, a Ubiquiti can a good solution. 

A Ubiquiti UniFi controller makes network connection more scalable by distributing the network across multiple devices, rather than just a single router. The controller has the added benefit of calculating network coverage and signal strength, to determine which areas of the large space the routers would work best in. It takes into account thickness of walls that could act as network barriers, or if there is a hot spot of network traffic that requires a stronger connection.

Is Ubiquiti overkill for a home?

In short, no. While Ubiquiti is amazingly powerful, it isn’t overkill for a home when you consider the future needs for a household. An example of this is if you have multiple members of your household working from home and need strong network connectivity for zoom calls, downloads, and quick internet speed. Another instance where Ubiquiti would work well for a home environment, is if there are many devices that need to be connected over a large surface area. However, it wouldn’t be as suited to smaller homes or apartments. 

While Ubiquiti UniFi is most suited to businesses, Ubiquiti also has the AmpliFi family, a series of products preferable for the home environment.
