Networks – that is, multiple computers or computer systems linked together – serve as a means for exchanging data. And because they’re all connected, these devices share access to the same resources, such as printers.
A properly functioning network requires effective connectivity, otherwise your employees won’t be able to communicate with colleagues, partners, customers or service providers. A network doesn’t consist of just computers, though—several other types of components are required as well. Our Bechtle online shop has the right hardware to get you up and running, with a portfolio that includes RJ45 and fibre optic patch panels as well as sockets, installation cables, plugs and couplers of both types. You’ll also find TV/SAT antenna cables/adapters, Wi-Fi antennas, bulk cables and much more. Click through the different categories to find the right components to build your network.
Most corporate networks are based on a server-client structure, where data is stored on a central server and accessed by clients (that is, individual workstations). This structure also enables Internet access. By contrast, peer-to-peer networks store data locally. The components and connectivity you’ll need for your network depend on how it’s structured. Cables and patch panels, however—which are essential for structured cabling—are always required, no matter the size or format.
Our Bechtle online shop has several filter options to help you find the right products to ensure network connectivity. You can make your selection by manufacturer or product group. When searching for patch panels and patch cables, for instance, choose whether you want fibre optic or RJ45 products. For panels, you can further narrow down results by indicating the number of ports. For cables, simply select your desired length. These filters are available for all product groups to help you navigate our vast portfolio. Each product’s description also indicates the available accessories and available alternatives. If you have any questions, our product managers will be happy to assist you with expert advice.
