Data cabling

Data cabling

Our data cabling services go hand-in-hand with our Wi-Fi services, creating convenient networking solutions for homes and businesses. We can install multiple access points, which is often a requirement for workstations in an office, or we can add cabling to homes, creating faster, more reliable connections for smart technology and full automation.

Talk to us about your networking needs for your home or business and we can put a data cabling solution in place to suit you. We use our 13+ years’ experience to find the right option. Call 01233 334135 or email to talk to the team.

What types of cabling 
do we offer?

  • Cat5 – A cabling standard set in 1995, previously used for simple network requirements (very rarely used)
  • Cat5e – A cable standard set in 2001, Cat5e reduces noise and signal interference, increasing rated transfer speeds to 350 Mbit/s over 100 meters (used for most basic networks)
  • Cat6 – A cabling standard which has been around since 2002, Cat6 cable transmits at speeds up to 1000 Mbits/s over 100 meters. Highly recommended for Power over Ethernet devices (PoE) and audio/video applications where devices are powered using the Cat6 cable (Patron minimum standard of cabling)
  • Cat6A – A revision of Cat6 cable where higher frequency is required. We suggest if you are installing cabling throughout a building to serve you for the next 10 years Cat6A cabling would be advised. Supports speeds to 10,000 mb/s
  • Cat7 – Most businesses still have no use for the cable revision released in 2010 however with every cable revision these offer increased speeds over its predecessor
  • Fibre cabling – Fibre Optic Cable is used for connecting buildings and floors networks without increased speeds and distances, but it isn’t used for complete network wiring. Consisting of hair-line filaments drawn from molten silica glass, optical cables are unlike copper cables.
  • Fibre optic single mode can deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet at 40,000 meters. This cable is so narrow that light can travel through it only in a single path
  • Fibre optic multimode can deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet at 550 meters. Wider core diameters give light beams the freedom to travel in multi-paths, causing signal distortion at its receiving end.

We can also install cabling for renovation projects, working flexibly on site around other contractors where necessary.
