Pre-Construction Wiring of you network is worth it’s weight in gold. If you have ever put together a business or home network as an after thought instead of planning it ahead of time, you may have realized what a mistake you made.

Retro-fitting a home or business network is no fun.  It takes time, money, and someone ready to crawl through your attic.  That usually gets pretty itchy and irritating.  Why not save everyone time and money by utilizing a pre-construction consultation for your network needs.

Most of the time when a construction crew is putting the house together they have already received plans that do not include network wiring.  The best time to consider your networking needs is when you are drawing up the plans.  Any electrician can pull wires, but not just any electrician knows how to deal with low voltage network wiring.  It’s not really dangerous or anything it’s just a little more complicated.

If you know that you want to have wired network capabilities in every room then it makes sense to include these in your plans ahead of time.  You or your contractor will need to know much and what kind of wire (Cat 5 or Cat 6) to pull through your house or office.  You will need to know how many RJ-45 jacks to install in each room.  You will need to know what kind of network equipment (routers, patch panels, switches) and hardware (mounting brackets and space requirements) will be required in a central “telco” closet or room.

If you are installing servers that will run your important business, then it is very important to create the proper environment for cooling of the servers and network equipment.  All of this becomes so much easier to handle if it is done before the walls go up.  So next time you build a home or office give us a ring and we will be happy to walk you through the pre-consultation to configure your needs and you can call us back to make sure the wiring is done right before they close up the walls.  Don’t forget to have us come back and terminate all your final network connections in the “telco” closet and in the individual rooms.

Happy Networking!

I hope some of these tips help you solve your computer issues.  If not, then don’t forget to give me a call.  Many things can be resolved using remote online support through your broadband internet connection.
