Distinguishing between Cat5 and Cat6 Network Cables

12 Jun 2014

Network cablesCAT 5,Network Cabling Data Cabling connect and transmit information between personal computers, storage area networks and routers. You can now find various models of cables. Your choice may depend on configuration and topology of the system’s architecture. The most common variety is known as twisted pair cable in local area networks. Numerous Ethernet networks use this type of cable. It is composed of four pairs of fine wires or conductors. Each pair is entwined several times to prevent obstruction from other cables and devices.

The CAT5 or Category5 is an example of twisted pair cable

Continued Dominance of Structured Copper Cabling Systems

28 May 2014

Copper cablingNetwork Cabling ,Data Cabling,copper cabling system will remain dominant in the structured cabling systems industry. This conclusion is based on analysis and forecasts made by several cabling installation companies worldwide. Both copper and optic fiber cabling are used for key structured cabling systems applications like LAN, data centers, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Optic fiber is gradually gaining in popularity, but copper cable still seems to be the major preference of most companies.

How Does Structured Cabling Work?

12 Apr 2014

CablingNetwork Cabling, Data Cabling,cat5 cat6 cabling is an essential component in your network. It also has a long life span, from 15 to 20 years, so it may be necessary to replace your network equipment at least three times during the life of the cabling configuration. Cable installation is roughly 15 percent of the total network outlay. So it is advisable to invest in premium cabling systems, particularly to reduce maintenance costs and downtime while also achieving improved network performance. Entrepreneurs are always advised to look at the long-term scenario and acquire the best cable installation available.

Uninterrupted Flow of Information

There is no doubt regarding the importance of a structured cabling system in the operations of a business organization. This complete system with related hardware provides far-reaching telecommunications; it has a broad range of uses like supplying phone services or transmitting information through a network of computers. Each structured cabling system is unique depending on a number of factors, including the architectural formation of edifices that houses cabling installation, cable and connection components, equipment variety that cabling supports, configuration including upgrades and retro-fitting, requirements of clients, and manufacturers’ warranties.

The assembly that has been planned carefully and installed according to this plan ensures an unbroken network of information and communications. Aside from this advantage, structured cabling facilitates sharing of resources, enables smooth operations, and adapts to evolving technology. In fact, it is expected to last longer than computer servers and network switches. The types of network installations are the Local Area Network (LAN), Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN).

Cabling installation firms design and install LAN systems consisting of data and voice as well as support equipment for computer networks and mainframe programs of PCs. All installations must comply with state and city codes together with manufacturers’ specifications.

Other Benefits

Structured cabling offers users more flexibility. It takes the place of multiple wiring systems with a single and cohesive infrastructure. This conveys data in various formats ranging from voice to video. You only need to plug the correct adapter into the socket whether you want to connect a computer, telephone or fax machine.

It affords users peace of mind since each cabling comes with full on-site warranty, covering component or performance faults. It is also possible to make changes in a matter of minutes. This built-in ensures that your organization can be very cost-effective. Furthermore, structured cabling has the capacity to hold high bandwidth, guaranteeing that you've invested in a solution that fully supports new applications. In other words, your cabling infrastructure will not become obsolete within the next few years.

Take care to deal only with cabling companies that employ highly competent technicians and make use of superior cable management equipment.

"Structured cabling” is a complete system of cabling and associated hardware which creates a telecommunications infrastructure. This infrastructure can serve a range of tasks, such as providing telephone service or data transmission through a computer network.

Every cabling system is unique. Variations in the structure of the facilities housing the installation, the specific cabling and connections needs, use and function, as well as customer needs requires standardization to ensure acceptable system performance from increasingly complex systems. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is the responsible organization

What is “Structured Cabling”?

14 Mar 2013

Structured-CablingStructured cabling is a telecommunications cabling infrastructure consisting of a number of standardized smaller elements called subsystems.

Structured cabling falls into five subsystems:

  1. A Demarcation point is the connection point where the telephone company network ends and the customer’s on-premise wiring connection begins.

  2. Equipment or Telecommunications Rooms contain equipment and wiring points that serve the users inside a building.

  3. Vertical or Riser Cabling connects between the equipment/telecommunications rooms on different floors.

Cat6 Installation Tips

9 Jan 2013
 Data Cabling, Cat5e Cat6/6a CablingAlways study and document the required cabling layout and the distances between the equipment to be cabled before starting a Cat6 cable installation.

Refer to ANSI/TIA/ EIA 606 Document for color coding the different functions used in the system guidance. Use either PVC or plenum cable as required depending on where the cables are run. Fiber optic and/or copper cable may be required depending on the transmission speed and type of equipment.
