A network cabling install for wired products has three primary challenges: choosing the right cable category for the bandwidth and usage, planning the best physical routing, and installing the network with minimum disruption to the building and the people working in it.
ACCL has 25 years’ experience in network cabling install work, and is expert at specifying the right level of network cabling to support voice and data communications. Our fully qualified engineers work with copper and fibre optic networks and can help office owners, tenants or contractors to plan and install the optimum network for the current working layout, allowing for future expansion or changes.
The complexity of a network cabling install is one of the main reasons that a qualified professional is necessary to set up a working system. To start, one must be well acquainted with the six subsystems of network cabling, as follows:
Entrance facilities refer to the places where the network cables enter a building or other structure.
Equipment rooms store equipment that may be used by the residents of a networked building.
Telecommunications rooms should not be accessed by anyone without a working knowledge of network cabling installations, as they contain the equipment which connects different sorts of cabling and makes it usable.
Backbone cabling connects the telecommunications rooms, equipment rooms and entrance facilities, allowing them to network with each other and with the outside.
Horizontal cabling connects individual outlets to the main infrastructure, allowing them to interact with the system.
These components are the last piece of the puzzle. They allow individual devices, such as computers, to plug into and access the network system. Together, these six subsystems make up structured network cabling as a whole.
The process of a network cabling install can be highly complex. The six subsystems are all interconnected, and must be wired in such a way that the cables do not get tangled or become obstacles in working areas. Furthermore, there is a very specific set of standards, which control precisely how a network is structured.
In many cases, the process of installation will necessitate some degree of construction work to keep cables safe and out of the way. For this reason, it is essential to hire a team of professional networking specialists to ensure that everything is installed and positioned correctly.
As network cabling install specialists, ACCL can help with all aspects, from choosing the right quality cable to ensure maximum network performance, to planning routes, pre-testing installing and post-test. We supply full documentation and provide a one year warranty on all of our work.
