High Speed wired and wireless networking for the home

Your computers, smart phones, video game consoles, media players etc have all evolved and require connections to the internet. Allow RMS to provide the link for all devices throughout your home whether they be wired or wireless.

Wired Local Area Networks (LAN) typically use Category 5/6 Ethernet cables and network adapters. Although two computers can be directly wired to each other using an Ethernet crossover cable, wired LANs usually also require central devices like switches or routers to offer communication between devices. A wired connection offers superior performance and reliability over wireless connections. RMS strongly recommends a wired connection for all devices in a home that support them.

Wireless Networks or “Wi-Fi” connects you to your favorite content and communications over your smart phone, computer, media players and other devices – all without cumbersome cables. When you’re on the move, Wi-Fi let’s you connect to the Internet or your office from an airport or coffee shop and helps you stay productive when you’re away from home. While not typically as fast as a wired connection, wireless networks offer a neat, easy way of accessing your daily communication needs.

Voice & Video Over IP

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a method for taking analog audio signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and converting them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet. VoIP is a revolutionary technology that has the potential to completely change the world’s phone systems. Major carriers like Verizon and Comcast are already offering VoIP calling plans around the United States.

Where does RMS fit in with this technology? VoIP is a sensitive protocol and requires delicate setup and configuration to ensure proper quality of service (QOS). We offer this configuration service as well as knowledge and installation of full IP based phone systems throughout the home which offer advanced features like voicemail, email, paging, music-on-hold and conferencing.

Networking in the A/V world

Nearly all consumer electronics for the home are now equipped with an Ethernet port to allow for software updates as well as online internet connectivity. With recent media services such as Xbox Live, Pandora, Rhapsody, Netflix & Hulu becoming popular, RMS can tailor your network to support these services and offer the best quality of service (QOS) possible. RMS can also future proof your home’s infrastructure so it can accommodate new, upcoming online services like Boxee.
