Structured Network Cabling
Network infrastructure is the hardware and software resources of an entire network that enable network connectivity, communication, operations and management of a network. It provides the communication path and services between users, processes, applications, services and external networks and the internet.
Voice and data cabling, structured cabling, ethernet cabling, wiring, network cables, are all terms used for structured cabling. Structured cabling is the copper or fibre wiring installed throughout the building. These cables connect IP devices such as computer, phone, wireless access points, cameras, copiers, etc. to a data and phone network. These cables can also provide power to devices, such as cameras, wireless access points, and phones, using power over ethernet (PoE) technology. Designed to accommodate frequent moves, adds and changes, a structured cabling system is the foundation of the modern information network.
Since the structured cabling infrastructure is the most critical part of your security, voice and data network, choosing a qualified voice and data cabling provider is a critical decision.
We use only high-end quality products in our structured cabling solutions, which are backed by manufacturer warranties. Our goal is to provide our customers with a physical layer infrastructure capable of supporting all applications designed in conjunction with today’s standards.
Today’s businesses require advanced information technology to maintain a competitive advantage. As technology continues to evolve, the corporate network must support voice, data, video and multimedia applications. The growing size of networks and the introduction of higher-speed access methods create an increasing need for reliable, manageable cabling systems. Careful planning will prevent congestion that can dramatically diminish your network performance. At the same time, a successful enterprise demands flexibility to meet the constant change of personnel and equipment.
The Enhanced Cat 5e solutions ensure cabling system’s ability to support the application performance you would expect. We provide Cat 5e, or Cat 6 solutions that will exceed TIA Cat 5e or 6 performance requirements and give your network an edge today and tomorrow. The structured cabling market always moves at incredible speeds, introducing new designs and emerging standards before the old ones are obsolete. We partner with leading edge manufacturers to offer solutions that will grow with your business while future-proofing your cabling infrastructure.
Fibre Optic Solutions
For maximum versatility and durability, a fibre optic cabling solution can be implemented into any network. Fibre optic cabling offers speed and reliability from the building entrance to the desktop, whether it is in the office or on the factory floor. Fibre optic cable also provides greater bandwidth and longer transmission distances while improving the overall efficiency of a network. A fibre optic solution in any building or campus environment provides a secure link for a multiple application network.
Reasons why IT Professionals Choose Fibre Optic Cables
Copper has some advantages, including the fact that it already exists in many places and is less expensive to connect network devices. While fibre optic cables are more expensive, there are several advantages that make it a more enticing cable infrastructure solution than its copper counterpart.
1. Fibre Optic Transmission Is Faster.
Fibre optic versus copper wire transmission can be boiled down to the speed of photons versus the speed of electrons. While fibre optic cables don’t travel at the speed of light, they come very close—only about 31 percent slower.
2. Optic Transmission Results In Less Attenuation.
When traveling over a long distance, fibre optic cables experience less signal loss than copper cabling, referred to as low attenuation. Copper network cables can only transmit information up to 100m due to power loss, whereas fibre cables can transmit information over hundreds of km’s.
3. Fibre Optic Cables Are Impervious To Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
Copper wires, if not properly installed, will produce electromagnetic currents that can interfere with other wires and wreak havoc on a network. Fibre optic cables, unlike copper cables, do not conduct electricity and equipment connected with fibre optic cables cannot be damaged by lightning strikes through the fibre optic cable connection.
4. Light Cannot Catch On Fire.
An added benefit of fibre optic cables is that they are not a fire hazard. This can also be attributed to the same reason that the cables do not produce EMI—there is no electric current traveling through the core.
5. Fibre Optic Cables are more durable and lasts longer.
The lifespan of fibre optic cables is between 15-25 years and might even exceed this period. Even though the fibre is made of glass, copper wires are more prone to damage than fibre optic cables. The lifespan of copper cables are less and it is unlikely that these networks will last as long compared to fibre optic networks.
