Streamline Your Retail Business Network with TP-Link Omada and APC Solutions - An IT Support Business Case Study

In today's rapidly changing technological landscape, a reliable and organised network infrastructure is vital for the success of small businesses. At FortiTech, we are committed to providing top-notch IT support and solutions to help businesses reach their full potential through technology.

Recently, we had the pleasure of working with a small retail business to upgrade their network setup. Our team of experienced technicians installed a 6U wall-mounted network rack, which not only housed all networking equipment but also created a tidy, secure, and streamlined solution.

This was the Before we were faced with - unorganised cables routing to unknown places, multiple power board and extensions, in short, general chaos:


To optimise the network's performance, we used TP-Link Omada networking equipment, well-known for its ease of use and versatility. The Omada app allowed the business owner to have complete control and monitoring capabilities over their network from anywhere, at any time. The TP-Link Omada equipment also enabled us to manage the Wi-Fi network with ease, ensuring secure access to the network.

As part of the upgrade, we migrated the client from a legacy phone system to a modern VoIP system, with minimal downtime. The transition was seamless, allowing the business to continue operating without any interruptions. You can find out more about the VoIP Phone Systems we offer here and here.

To protect the equipment during power outages, particularly during storm season in Queensland, we installed an APC branded UPS within the network rack. All networking equipment was connected to the UPS, providing backup power and ensuring the business could continue to operate smoothly during a power outage. You can find out more about the benefits of a UPS in one of our previous blogs.

This how it looked half way through the new setup with the new rack wall mounted and UPS part way through setup:

To enhance the overall tidiness of the installation, we encased the cabling in conduit along the wall, providing a professional appearance. The business owner was over the moon with the improvements made to their equipment and the overall tidiness of the setup.

And for the big final reveal:


Our team is proud to have helped this business streamline their network with TP-Link Omada networking and APC UPS solutions. These innovative solutions have contributed to the success of the project, providing them with a secure, robust and modern IT infrastructure with protection from the unpredictable Queensland weather when needed.
