Switches

Switches are used to segment networks into smaller connected subnets. As demand for data increases, networks can easily overload and "packet collisions" can occur as a result. Switching packets into separate subnets can enhance performance easily and inexpensively while preserving existing investments.

The switch reads the destination address and "switches" the signals directly to the recipients without broadcasting to all of the machines on the network. Thus collisions are avoided and network speed is improved.

As authorised partners for HP Procurve and Cisco, we are able to provide expert advice on an organisations' switch requirements as well as supply, install and configure the equipment.

Routers

Routers link a local network to some form of remote network. Used for Internet access, LAN-LAN connections of a wide area network (intranet or WAN), or high speed remote access for a branch office or remote worker over an ISDN line.

UPS

With any installation of electronic equipment, it is important that adequate measures are taken to protect against irregular power supplies.

Spikes, surges and brown outs can occur for a number of reasons but the net effect of all of them is loss of data integrity and sometimes damage to your equipment and cabling. Matrix Net offer a wide range of solutions to ensure these problems are filtered out before they have a negative effect on your network.

In addition to this protection, Matrix Net can also specify and provide full UPS solutions to protect during a black out, providing valuable minutes to ensure equipment is properly powered down and no data is lost.
