Cat5e & Cat6 Installation

Cat5e and Cat6 cables are essential for business due to their reliable high-speed connections. Cat5e supports up to 1 Gbps, suitable for everyday tasks, while Cat6 offers speeds up to 10 Gbps and better performance over longer distances, ideal for data-heavy applications. They ensure efficient data transfer, minimal interference, and a strong network foundation, crucial for seamless business operations.

Data Cabinet Tidy-Up

Having someone carry out a data cabinet tidy improves organization, enhances airflow, and reduces the risk of overheating. It makes maintenance easier, minimises downtime, and ensures faster troubleshooting. Overall, it enhances the efficiency and reliability of your network infrastructure.

Business Level Wi-Fi Solutions

A state-of-the-art WiFi solution enhances a business's network with faster, more reliable connections, improved security, and better coverage. It supports more devices and modern applications, boosting productivity and efficiency while ensuring seamless communication and minimal downtime.

Fibre Splicing

Fibre splicing is the process of connecting two optical fibres to make a continuous line for data transmission. This is important for setting up or fixing fibre optic networks. The main methods are fusion splicing, which uses heat to join the fibres, and mechanical splicing, which aligns and holds them with a connector. Both methods need careful handling to keep the network working well.

Structured cabling is a telecommunications network or private data network that uses cables to connect devices from the computer to the telecommunications infrastructure.

The structured network cabling provides support for voice, video, and data communications for computers and services.

It is essential because they offer better speeds and performance from their systems, leading to smoother network infrastructure.

The different types of CAT cables are:

CAT 5: This cabling standard is pretty old and is comparatively slower than others. They are only rated to provide up to 100 MHz bandwidth. 

Cat 5e: They have four twisted pairs instead of two and a higher frequency rating. With these, you can expect better performance than the previous internet cables. 

Cat 6: Category 6 offers increased bandwidth of up to 500 MHz. It also includes more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. They are suitable for Gigabit Ethernet and other high-speed network applications, such as 1000BASE-T. 

Cat 6a: The “a” in Cat 6a stands for augmentation. These cables are faster, denser, and more technologically advanced than regular Cat 6 cables because they have a shield to eliminate crosstalk. 

Cat 7: Cat7 can operate at up to 40Gbps at distances up to 50 m and 10Gbps at distances up to 100 m. They have stricter specifications regarding crosstalk.

Cat 8: Cat 8 is the most advanced Ethernet cable. They can support bandwidths of up to 2000 MHz at speeds of up to 40 Gbps.

Cat 5 and CAT 6 differ in their transmission speeds. At 100 m, Cat 5 can reach up to 10/100 Mbps, while Cat 6 can reach up to 1 Gbps.

Shielded cables are a bit more challenging to install and maintain than non-shielded cables.

Shielded cables, however, offer greater protection against electromagnetic

interference, which can interfere with the internal workings of electrical systems.

Non-shielded cables are easier to use but may be susceptible to EMI.

Ethernet cables are available in a few different versions. Still, all have a maximum range of 100 meters, i.e., 328ft

fibre optic cable contains anywhere from one to several hundred optical fibres within a plastic casing.  Fibre optic cable (or optical fibre cable) transfers data signals in the form of light and travel anywhere from a few feet to hundreds of miles significantly faster than signals in traditional copper cables.

Fibre optic cables can carry enormous volumes of data at very high speeds. For this reason, fibre optic technology serves various purposes. It is always the preferred networking method, whether it is between systems within a building or across buildings.

Advantages of Fibre Optic Cable

Fibre optic cabling has several major characteristics which provide a strong advantage compared to traditional copper conductor cables.

Key advantages of optical fibres include:

  • Distance – because of their low signal power loss rate, fibre optic cables are able to carry optical signals over far longer distances than older types of cabling. With the ideal combination of network setup, materials, and wavelength, some single fibre optics are effective at carrying signals over hundreds of kilometres. In comparison, standard copper cables have a limitation of 328-feet for good quality transfer distance
  • Bandwidth and data transfer – copper data cables offer quite limited bandwidth as opposed to fibre optics
  • Speed – fibre optic cables enjoy a significant speed advantage compared to other data transfer modes because they use light pulses as the primary information conveyance source. In this regard, fibre typically outstrips the expected performance of even high-grade copper cables such as Cat5 and Cat6
  • Interference – much more protection is provided against interference and cross-talk by fibre optics than metal cables. This is because fibre does not carry a physical electrical signal
  • Reliability and safety – although optical fibre cables are usually a lot lighter and thinner, they are also sturdier. This means that they can withstand far greater forces and therefore the chances of incurring breakage or damage across long runs are less likely. Fibre is not influenced by moisture, poor weather, or extreme temperatures nearly as much as copper-based wiring. Additionally, as glass fibres do not carry current, they are not fire hazards even if they are ageing or damaged
