Cat5e, Cat 6, and Cat6a are the most common types of structured cabling systems fitted in the marketplace today in both UTP and FTP grades (shielded or unshielded). In laymen’s terms, the number given to the cable system refers to the speed of the cable, i.e. how fast it can transfer data but be aware that a poor installation can affect how fast a network performs also. We will meet with you to ascertain the requirements of your network and advise you on which grade of cable will best suit your requirements for your present project and to future proof the install. A site survey will be carried out initially, surveying cable routes, cable containment requirements, access routes, access times, Health and Safety requirements.
One of our specialties is to re-patch data cabinets within an existing site that has become a bit of a bird's nest! This can happen after a cabinet is in constant use by many people and outlets have been patched then re-patched, maybe using a 5-meter patch lead when half a meter would have done and the result over time can cause mayhem. We will supply a full list of network outlet uses and switch port outlet uses. Once done, this can free up a lot of space within the cabinet that could be used for new switches for example or more structured cabling outlets to be added.

Fiber optic cables are used extensively now as either backbone (connecting server rooms together) and building interconnects. We can advise on fiber optic cable speeds, what will best fulfill your requirements, and also survey and test any existing fiber cables on site. Also, the best way to interconnect to switches/servers can be advised on and implemented.
Telephony cabling, otherwise known as CW1308 grade cabling can be installed, this is normally used for linking phone systems together or for backup ADSL phone lines from switch rooms
Installation of new server/patch cabinets can be done, whether it involves upgrading an existing cabinet to a larger cabinet or a fresh install.
Also, we offer a full testing and repair service of existing networks if required, for example, if you are about to move into new premises and are unsure of the state of the existing fitted network. Fluke DTX testers are used and full results will be supplied.
We can offer a full 25-year manufacturer's warranty on installation which will cover both the cable and the outlets against failure.
All of our engineers are BICSI trained, have over 10 years each experience in this field, and hold all necessary Health and Safety certificates, i.e. IPAF, PASMA, Asbestos, Working at Height, Ladders, First Aid. With this, you can be confident the job will be carried out to the highest standard!
