Cat5, 5e, 6 and 6A Cabling

A router is a device that forwards data packets between computer networks. Essentially, your computer would not be able to access the internet if you did not have a router. We can supply routers from many manufacturers, but we primarily supply Ubiquiti routers. Ubiquiti routers are business-grade routers suitable for businesses of all sizes.


A switch is a device that connects devices together on a computer network. It is an essential part of a network for businesses. They use packet switching to forward data to the designated destination. This differs from a network hub, as a network switch will only forward data to one or multiple devices. On the other hand, a network hub will broadband data from all of its ports.


A firewall is a piece of hardware or software that is used to protect your network from dangerous intrusions. A firewall is a barrier between your network and outside networks that are unsecure or untrusted. If anything tries to penetrate your internal network, the firewall will protect it. A firewall is an essential part of any network setup. Without it, you are allowing anyone willing to exploit your network have full access.


A modem is a piece of hardware that modifies a carrier signal to encode digital information. Additionally, it also decodes carrier signals to ‘understand’ the information that has been transmitted. A modem can be used in a range of situations, such as where two computers are communicating over a telephone line. Without a modem, a router is no use – and vice versa – regarding connecting to and using the internet.
