As discussed in Part 1, always work with an experienced and expert professional company when installing low voltage cabling for your business. Part 2 will discuss Labeling & Documentation, Future Proofing, Testing, and Warranty.
When your company needs to install a low voltage structured cabling system to run with more efficiency, always work with an experienced and expert professional company. Their staff will help in the design and installation of your organization’s wiring infrastructure. The following will cover what to expect from a cabling contractor during the process.
As discussed in Part 1, fiber optic cables can deliver data transmissions of greater bandwidth over longer distances than copper cabling. Part 2 will discuss four more advantages of fiber optic cabling.
Containing several strands of glass fibers within insulated casing, fiber optic cabling was designed for high-performance data networking and telecommunications. Fiber optic cables can deliver data transmissions of greater bandwidth and longer distances than copper cabling. Numerous cable television, internet, and telephone systems are supported by fiber optic cabling worldwide.
As discussed in Part 1, commercial buildings and facilities typically have audio, computer networking, HD video, network data, telephone, and Wi-Fi systems. Each can be individually supported by its own low voltage wiring network, which can be integrated, monitored, and controlled with the others under a single system. Part 2 will discuss Security and Workplace Communication Systems.
Also called structured wiring, low voltage cabling or wiring is used for supporting communication equipment and digital technology to help them work consistently and efficiently. Featuring several sets of complex wiring, commercial buildings and facilities typically have audio, computer networking, HD video, network data, telephone, and Wi-Fi systems. Each can be supported by a low voltage wiring network independent from standard electrical wiring.
On existing multimode backbones, supporting 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps may be achieved through the utilization of LC-to-MPO fanout that connects existing LC connectors of installed cabling to the MPO (Multi-fiber Push On) connector. LC cord ends are connected with LC couplers inside the shelf. MPO connectors are inserted inside the 40G or 100G transceiver. Since transceivers are invariably pinned, a fanout cord featuring an unpinned MPO connector is utilized.
Migration to 40 Gbps & 100 Gbps
In contrast to 10 Gbps backbones that use serial transmission, the newest generation 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps multimode applications use parallel transmission.
As discussed in Part 1, new developments in wireless technologies have exceeded horizontal bandwidth speeds of 1 Gbps, and faster network speeds are now required via fiber backbone cabling. Part 2 will discuss OM5, Fiber Backbone, and 10 Gbps.
Up until a few years ago, horizontal cabling installations in the majority of buildings were intended to support up to 1 Gbps speeds. 1000BASE-T was thought to provide adequate bandwidth for horizontal applications. But new developments in wireless technologies have exceeded horizontal bandwidth speeds of 1 Gbps, and more rapid network speeds are now required.
