Flexibility and 'future-proofing' are very important for the home. We now live in an IP (Internet protocol) world with your entertainment systems, telephones, computers and other domestic appliances are all starting to gel together, so it makes sense to wire with this in mind. Whilst there are wireless solutions, these are currently not as fast, secure or reliable as we would like. They are well suited to connecting portable devices such as laptops but for fixed devices and high quality audio and video steaming, wires are generally considered a better solution.
