Why a Strong Network Is Essential to Your Business AV
Get the Most out of Your Commercial Audio Visual Installations
New York’s businesses run on the internet.
That’s not an overstatement, nor a particularly bold one. If your company in the Orchard Park area isn’t online, you’re probably falling behind on most of your verticals.
And we’re not just talking about emails. In many contemporary offices, all kinds of components are connected to a network, from your computers to your commercial audio visual installations.
In this blog, we’ll illustrate the necessity of implementing a strong network, and how you can get the most out of your AV through one.
What a Network Does
Every member of your team pulls their weight. You may have low-level workers, managers and everything in between. And they’re each expected to do their job to make the company run.
Among those “in between” jobs are the folks who help facilitate everything that happens in your company – the operations and administrative staff. They’re essential to how well everything works. In a similar way, your network is just as important.
The network connects all your internet-based devices. That includes your computers, servers, and even your connected smart devices like thermostats, automated lighting, and AV equipment.
An optimal network ensures each device operates smoothly and prioritizes more important components to ensure successful usage.
An Optimal Network
At its most basic, a strong network will have two qualities. It will have enough bandwidth to support all your devices, and it will make sure the most important ones get preference.
Bandwidth is basically the room in which your signal can move. Low bandwidth compares to a two-lane blacktop; high bandwidth to a four-lane superhighway. More cars can operate simultaneously on the wider road.
For commercial applications, a mesh network is often the best solution. Mesh networks include nodes placed throughout your space that enhance the signal throughout the workplace. They’re not just signal boosters – they create a stronger signal as it passes through each node.
The result is a network that gets stronger as it gets bigger and features full coverage throughout the space with no blackout areas or weak zones. This ensures better performance from your workplace’s many devices.
Additionally, prioritization software can help ensure the most important signals reach their destination first. If you’re operating a lot of digital signage or video screens as part of a customer-facing audio visual installation, you can ensure that signal is always the first to reach its destination, over less important devices.
