As discussed in Part 1, cabling infrastructure is the foundation of your IT network. Processing, routing, and storing network data, the data center needs to work with greater efficiency because of the rising demands of today’s enterprise applications. Part 2 will discuss how to select a cabling installation provider.
Qualifications of Installer
Your cabling installation provider should be an experienced and expert technician who is trained and knowledgeable in structured cabling solutions. Get referrals and do thorough research to help ensure you find a firm that will meet the needs of your company’s cabling infrastructure.
Do not fail to check the references of each cabling provider you are seriously considering to verify the quality of their previous projects. It would be a waste of thousands of dollars spent on new cabling, equipment, hardware, and software if the installation was performed by an incompetent group.
One approach is to retain a respected expert for the design of your company’s IT network. This consultant will then provide the guidance to the cable installers. Alternatively, you can also hire a well-regarded cabling provider that already has design expertise.
Advantages of Reputable Local Team
Many facilities and office buildings have substandard cabling infrastructures because the cabling installation was subcontracted to firms that were not properly evaluated. Oftentimes, the work was outsourced to an organization with poor standards and a bad track record because it provided the lowest estimate.
The superior alternative is selecting a local cabling provider with strong qualifications. You will be able to meet personally with their management to discuss your company’s needs in detail before starting the project. This is how larger companies handle the installation of their cabling infrastructure to make sure their technical and business requirements are sufficiently met.
If your company has IT personnel, they should work with the cabling provider’s staff on the planning, design, and installation of your cabling infrastructure. This approach will help ensure that your business will be ready to provide services and earn money as soon as possible.
