The Goal of Network Experts

At Soundworks, our goal is to create a home network that allows you seamless functionality between all of your smart and connected devices. To accomplish this, every area of the home and yard acquires a solid, secure, and reliable network with strong signals and fast communications. There are several considerations when creating this type of connected landscape.

  • Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the amount of data transmitted over an internet connection. Some activities, such as streaming videos and gaming, require significant bandwidth. If you’re experiencing buffering, lack of bandwidth may be an issue.  
  • Latency: Network latency is the time it takes for data to travel from the source to the destination. If websites take their time loading, you’re probably experiencing latency issues.
  • Connectivity: Extending coverage through mesh networks, access points that ensure a strong signal from corner to corner of your home, provides a strong internet connection no matter where you are in your home. Waterproof models can also be added outdoors, enabling seamless coverage throughout your yard.
  • Latest Router: This hardware allows communication between your connected devices and the internet and continues to evolve as technology advances. Today’s up-to-date routers support Wi-Fi 6, the latest standard. Wi-Fi 6 offers significant improvement in security and bandwidth.

Your router is your first line of defense, keeping your network secure and protecting it and your connected devices, such as laptops, from malicious intent. It accomplishes this through firewalls, firmware updates, password protection, and two-factor authentication.

Our technicians can also set up a guest network so that visitors can utilize your internet without compromising your security.  

The Outcome of a Solid Home Network

What happens when a solid home network backs up your smart home? Your download speeds increase, that frustrating spinning wheel popping up in the middle of your Netflix movie (otherwise known as buffering) is a thing of the past, and everyone can stream their favorite music, movies, and podcast from anywhere in the home and at any time.

You’ll never have to stand in a specific spot in your yard or home to ensure continued coverage on a call. Family members won’t be reminding each other of an important video conference coming up, asking others to stop streaming to ensure a seamless and professional experience.

For homes experiencing Wi-Fi issues, this ease of living may seem a little out of reach. However, Soundworks Inc has provided homes with the best network solutions for over 30 years.
