The network is a crucial technology platform for every modern, integrated, and efficient facility. Our engineers consider the core network, the distribution network, and the access network, such as wireless and distributed antenna systems. Our robust, thorough, and highly skilled team ensures this most fundamental communication pathway is engineered flawlessly and with the future in mind. Our networks are designed and deployed using hierarchical topologies that scale and provide redundancy with the connectivity.
Networks within buildings provide connectivity between base building systems such as HVAC, physical security, and many other building functions. The wired network systems can provide not only communication but also power to the attached devices, removing the need for expensive local power sources. Phones, security cameras, control panels, and wireless access points (WAPs) are some common devices that leverage power sources through the network via power-over-ethernet (PoE).
Local-Area Network (LAN)
Networks within a building or campus are considered local. These LANs are strategically designed to provide high availability and bandwidth between devices co-located within the LAN. TEECOM’s designs align the LAN equipment and placement with physical infrastructure. Network switches and router quantities and features are selected to adhere to project requirements and budgets.
Wide-Area Network (WAN)
Whether a single floor, whole building, or campus, most projects will need access to network resources that are not within the project. These include Internet, remote support, and other remote private-computer resources. This is where WAN connectivity is needed. WANs usually involve telecommunication services provided by AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, or many other sources. These types of telecommunication companies offer off-premise connectivity via their services at recurring costs. TEECOM’s network engineers can identify where and what capacity of WAN services are needed with a focus on features and associated costs.
Cybersecurity is at the forefront of network connectivity. The internet has brought fantastic benefits to communications and information access. Unfortunately, this same benefit can provide avenues for unauthorized access. Today’s networks must provide access control that include logical separation, authentication, and intrusion detection with corresponding responses to avoid cyber attacks.
