Office Links & Remote Access
Unshielded Twisted Pair cabling is the most popular for new installations. UTP is capable of handling both computer and telephone traffic, allowing voice and data to be integrated into a single installation.
Fibre optic cabling is the accepted medium for backbone cabling due to its unique properties, including higher bandwidth, data security and distance capabilities.
Category 5e & Category 6
Cat5e structured cabling is still the most popular system for new installations. Category 5e is capable of handling Gigabit Ethernet to distances of 100 metres with the flexibility offered by patching. For high volume data and demanding network graphics, Category 6 is available.
Telephony over structured cabling
A major benefit of Cat5 and Cat6 cabling is its ability to connect telephone equipment. Telephone adapters and RJ45 telephone panels wired to the phone system are the only additional components required. Structured cabling enables any outlet on the cabling system to be used for telephone, fax, modem and computer.
