What is network cabling?
Network cabling is an essential telecoms infrastructure, that connects and transfers data and information between computers, routers, and switches – which is essential for the smooth running of your phone and broadband services. Cables are generally made from either copper (traditional) or glass (fibre). The type of cable will vary depending on the network’s topology, protocol and size, but you don’t need to worry about this, we will put together a tailored plan to help you get the most out of your cabling and advise on the best set up for your business. You may require an update or maintenance from time to time, but we’ll be on hand to ensure you are aware of any coming upgrades and that they are carried out smoothly with no disruption.
Networking services we provide include; supply of network devices, fibre optic cabling, structured cabling, software design and implementation, and electrical installation to NICEIC standards.
Benefits of structured network cabling
We provide structured network cabling, which comes with a whole host of benefits. Structured cabling simply means that the cables are organised, making your services more reliable, as well as cost and time effective
Our networking services allow for a more efficient process all round, making your communications easier to manage. Maintenance and repair costs can also be reduced, as faults are easier to find and rectify compared to a messy set
- Easier to organise
- Everything runs on one system
- Cost effective
The risk of downtime due to human error is higher when your network cabling is unstructured. Not only that, but if a fault does occur, you may be waiting longer to get a resolution as faults can be harder to find. Well-planned cabling allows for easier troubleshooting and reduces your risk of mistakes being made.
- Easier to identify and fix problems
- Reduced risk of prolonged downtime
- Robust and reliable network installation
Structured networking gives you more flexibility, making it easier to expand your communications and introduce updated technology into your business. Systems, such as VoIP phones can be introduced with ease and bring your communications to the next level.
- Scalable and adaptable - great for a growing business
- Responsive to industry changes
- Move system to a new office with ease
The ISDN switch over
BT are planning to switch off their traditional copper line network by 2025, in favour of newer, more efficient VoIP technology. If you still use a traditional phone line, you will start to feel the effects over the coming years, before the lines eventually become obsolete. Our advice is to switch sooner rather than later to avoid higher costs.
