All network infrastructures have become a mission critical element in today's organizations. It is responsible for far more than just enabling the applications that drive business operations. Today's networks require speed and dependeablity for today's complex business operations. The systems must be able to adapt to rapid growth, data intensive applications, security threats, and new technologies that push the edge of the network.
To help our customers in meeting these challenges UNICOM offers technologies to fit the needs and requirements of today and tomorrow's network infrastructures. Whether it's copper or fiber, Ethernet, fast Ethernet or gigabit Ethernet, UNICOM offers the highest quality network equipment and complete structured cabling solutions for Commercial, Residential, and Industrial applications. UNICOM is "Technology for the Real World".
PoE-Power over Ethernet
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) eliminates the need to run separate 110/220 VAC power to other devices on a wired LAN. Using a Power over Ethernet system, installers need to run only a single Category 5e Ethernet cable to carry both power and data to each device. This allows great flexibility in the locating of network devices and significantly decreases installation time and costs.
GigBit Ethernet Networking
Gigabit Ethernet (GbE or 1 GigE) is a term describing various technologies for transmitting Ethernet frames at a rate of a gigabit per second, as defined by the IEEE 802.3-2005 standard. Half duplex gigabit links connected through hubs are allowed by the specification but in the marketplace full duplex with switches is the norm.
IGMP (The Internet Group Management Protocol) is a communications protocol used to manage the membership of Internet Protocol multicast groups. IGMP is used by IP hosts and adjacent multicast routers to establish multicast group memberships. It is an integral part of the IP multicast specification, like ICMP for unicast connections. IGMP can be used for online video and gaming, and allows more efficient use of resources when supporting these uses.
This feature supports high bandwidth Ethernet signal distribution such as streaming video and audio through the network
WLAN or Wireless Local Area Network. Similar to other wireless devices, it uses radio instead of wires to transmit data back and forth between computers on the same network.
Wi-Fi is a commonly used wireless network in computer systems which enable connection to the internet or other machines that have Wi-Fi functionalities. Wi-Fi networks broadcast radio waves that can be picked up by Wi-Fi receivers that are attached to different computers.
Fixed wireless data is a type of wireless data network that can be used to connect two or more buildings together in order to extend or share the network bandwidth without physically wiring the buildings together.
