Our business is already wired with cabling, why do I need an upgrade?
As Dereck Djernes mentions, most cabling that is in existing buildings that are older is not sufficient enough to handle all the data that is trying to be pushed through the network. As most of that cabling is CAT 3 at best, running your network on that older type of cabling is similar to using dial-up internet. While at the time it was being used, dial up internet was sufficient. As technology evolves and more and more data is being pushed, that older cabling is no longer sufficient.
Today internet and data service providers such as Hamilton are installing fiber and in some cases, CAT 6 where needed, which provides lightening fast network speeds allowing all devices, computers, phones and other services that run with fiber optic cable to be able to connect and perform at a much greater level than those that operate on older cabling.
What does cabling have to do with security and access solutions?
Technology solutions such as door access control and security cameras, which Hamilton also provides, work best when connected to high speed cabling such as fiber as previously mentioned. At Hamilton we offer customized options for our customers and we work to fill their exact needs. Whether you need one or two security cameras or you need 100cameras, Hamilton is able to work with you and provide you the solution you need.
