Voice, data and wiring installations
Category 5 cable, most commonly known as Cat 5, has four twisted pairs in a single cable jacket. It’s an un shielded twisted cable pair designed specifically for high signal integrity. Back in 2001, with the inclusion of the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, the CAT 5 cabling specification was made outdated and obsolete, and was then superseded by the category 5e specification. It is commonly used for 100Mbit/s networks, but with IEEE 802.3ab defined standards can also support 1000BASE-T – gigabit Ethernet.
Cat 6- Category – 6, (ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1) CAT6 contains four twisted copper wire pairs and is a cable standard for Gigabit Speed Ethernet and additional network protocols that are backward compatible with both Category 5/5e and Category 3 standards. The CAT6 cable standard is usable for 10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet) connections, and provides outstanding performance up to 250 MHz. When CAT6 is used for a patch cable, Cat6 is typically terminated with an RJ-45 connector. All cables defined by TIA/EIA-568-B have the maximum allowed length of 90 meters, including CAT6. A complete channel may be up to 100 meters
Fibre optic cabling
Fibre optic cabling provides much greater bandwidth than standard copper wiring options and is commonly used for backbone connections between local networking pieces of equipment. It is the preferred choice for most IT staffs for the superior quality and high reliability it provides. Although the cost can be prohibitive for your typical desktop applications, fibre optic cabling provides the high security link possible with immunity from EMI (electromagnetic interference). It has now also become the preferred standard solution for inter-building links, inter-network links, and additional connections that are beyond the maximum 90 meter limit for Category 5e copper cabling. Several types of fibre optic cabling systems are offered, and all of our cables are graded for either internal or external installation.
In addition to the above cabling options, we also supply wireless infrastructure cabling, server room cabling, data cabling, voice cabling, video cabling, surveillance camera cabling, data network cabling, and phone system cabling.
