Basic Concept that must be understand in Building Internet Cafe Network

Basically to make an internet café is to build a LAN (Local Area Network) which will be given Internet connection so that Local Area Network (LAN) to be Internet network which in business terms is called internet café, in Indonesia more familiar called WARNET. In order to build an internet café, it requires the computer server and some computers for clients, the number of computer clients depend on your needs. For that I will give you the concept of building an internet café for those of you who want to make an internet café to be your own business, or just want to know the technical about  how to make a internet cafe network.

Suppose that we want to make internet cafe with some computer clients and 1 computer server, which became the most important point is

  • You must create a network with some clients computer and the server, so that all can connect each other and communicate as a whole local area network (LAN). If you already know to make a Local Area Network, to develop it into a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), it is just interface card that is different is used, the logic is the same.
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP) that parties who provide Internet connectivity services that will we share to a Local Area Network that we will create. You must choose the ISP that can provide you the best services.
  • Determine the types of computer server that we will create. The server of Internet café in the building can be divided into billing server and internet connection server. You can choose to make a billing server, or the server of both, or you can separate between billing server and internet connection server be different part, which would require bigger cost.
  • Installing software on the billing server. Billing to determine the rental rate of your customer. There are a variety of billing software, you are able to make byself with your ability. But for those of you who do not want to bother, just downloading the software it better, there are paid and also free ones, this becomes your decision. As a suggestion for the first time to make Internet café or you just to make a small internet cafe there is a lot of free software that you can choose. This is good idea is it not?
  • Internet Bandwidth Management. This of course after the network is completed. Bandwidth management can be performed on each clients, or from internet connection computer server, or it could be straight from the router that provided by the ISP. It really depends on what kind of internet connection of the ISP you use.
The rest is a matter that can think by yourself, eg electrical and lan cable installation to make it look straight and safe, and table design and layout of client and server in order to look neat and effective. The fifth point above I will discuss on the next article. Good luck!
