Security is a very hot topic in today's world. Simple solutions are available for any business, or domestic customer. We use NAT firewalls to lock down your PC's from intrusion. Our technicians have tons of experience in network security. We consult with ISP security technicians to stay on top of the latest threats. Call us to talk about network security and the best plan for you.

    NAT distributes an IP address to each device on the network. Hook up a NAT router or residential gateway to your cable or DSL modem and you're sharing the connection. Another benefit of NAT is that it allows only one IP address to be visible to the outside world. Hiding your LAN behind the router adds a layer of security and also hides your PCs from your service provider.

NTCP recommends, uses Linksys routers and switches to set up secure firewalls for any user. You may have only the family PC, or the whole office to protect. We can give you the peace of mind you need.

       How Firewalls Work


Dos and don'ts of professional cabling

  • Use fire resistant cable for lowered (t-bar) ceilings

  • Don't run cable within 1' of power sources

  • Don't run cable with in 3' of florescent lights

  • Don't use ties

  • Don't stretch cable more then 25 pounds of pressure during installation

  • Don't bend cable more then a 90 degree angle

Data Cabling that is not installed to code and installed incorrectly may result in unreliable LAN connections, lower bandwidth, slower connections, irregular networking problems and workstation downtime.

The rule for Data Cabling: Do it right the first time.
