Voice & Data Services
When managing an enterprise network, structured cabling is rarely top of mind. However, when a critical piece of infrastructure fails or the needs of the company exceed the current system, the importance of a properly functioning cable solution becomes very evident. With more technologies such as voice, video and energy utilizing the IP network, the need to consistently manage and review the infrastructure throughout your enterprise is increasingly important.
The installation, material, quality of cable and testing procedures are all much more critical in data wiring than in voice. The main reason for this is that networks today are designed to carry large amounts of information at incredible speeds. To accomplish this over unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP), many different criteria must be met.
The Future of voice cabling installation is changing, trust our experts to help… When discussing voice cable, different applications and cable grades can come into play. With the advent of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) the future of telephone cabling may change dramatically. But the fact of the matter is, we are still seeing over 90% of companies wiring for voice the same way it’s been done for the last 20 years: using voice grade wire and standard RJ11 jacks at the user end.
These configurations give companies, and the majority of phone vendors, all the flexibility they need at a very reasonable cost. When voice cable is being installed in conjunction with your network cabling, the labor cost is greatly reduced. The cost of Category 3 cable, whether plenum rated or non-plenum, is very reasonable in relation to Category 5, and the jacks, usually 6-conductor USOC, are inexpensive.
