Communications and data are essential in today’s busy world, so ensuring that your home has appropriate telephone and data outlets is a must. Smillie can handle the installation of new outlets/cabling, the relocation of existing outlets/cabling and maintenance or repairs as needed.
The things that usually connect to your phone line include: telephones, ADSL or VDSL (NBN) modems, fax machines and alarms. If your home lacks outlets where you need them (such as a spare bedroom doubling as a home office), we can install one and redirect phone wiring as required.
These days, just about everything in our homes is dependent on Ethernet technology. We can install data wiring and outlets to achieve a number of goals, such as connecting your games console to the internet for online gaming or extending your home’s LAN to add more computers or printers.
Things to consider when installing phone and data points
The NBN connection box connects to the WiFi router provided by your Internet Service Provider. You should consider the position of this box carefully so that the WiFi signal is distributed evenly around your home. It is also a good idea to locate a home distributor close to the connection box so that all the critical pieces of equipment are close together and easily accessible.
Hard wired data access points are more reliable than WiFi so you should consider placing RJ45 sockets close to TVs and the main house computer. The location of phone sockets should also be considered. Carefully planning where phone sockets and telephone wiring need to go can significantly reduce the amount of time required for installation.
The standard phone line wiring cable is Cat5e which can support speeds up to 1000 Mbps. This is plenty fast enough for most domestic requirements, but heavy internet users may want to consider upgrading to Cat6 cable. Cat6 can support speeds up to 10 Gbps and will also help future proof your home against faster broadband speeds.
