Setting up a workspace network for home office and studio

By Denise De Albuquerque

A workspace network is a great way to stay connected and productive, whether working from home, in a studio or a small office. There are a few important things to consider when setting up your workspace network to ensure it’s efficient and secure.

Hardware and Technologies

The first thing you’ll need is powerful hardware that can support more devices with higher speeds. This includes a router, modem, and range extender if needed. You’ll also want to make sure your devices are compatible with the latest technology standards like Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E. Check with your ISP to see what type of equipment you can use and what type of speeds you can expect from your connection.

Security Features

It’s important to have antivirus services to protect every device on your network from the latest cyber threats. Keep your security system up-to-date to ensure you have the best protection possible. Many routers come with built-in security features like firewalls, but you may want to consider an additional layer of protection like malware removal software.

You should also set up a guest network for visitors so they can access the internet without having access to your main network resources. This will keep your data safe and secure. If you need to access files or resources remotely, you can set up a VPN server which will enable secure remote access from outside your network.

Storage and Sharing

A USB port on your router will allow you to easily share files between connected devices by plugging them into an external drive. This is a convenient way to transfer large files without having to go through email or another cloud-based service.

Some routers also come with built-in storage so you can back up important data or create a central location for media files like photos and music. You can also look for features like DLNA compatibility, which lets you stream media from your router to compatible devices like TVs and game consoles.
