One of the most vital requirements of any business is the rapid and reliable transfer of information. Active Communications Limited realise the importance of this and are registered Category 5e, 6, 7 & Fibre Optic installers for HellermannTyton, Nexans & Excel Cabling Systems.
Structured cabling allows the linkage of various stations of a local area network (LAN) whilst maintaining the high degree of flexibility which is required for today's high performance applications. Employing this standard of cabling coupled with the quality of workmanship guaranteed by Active Communications ensures that no-matter the size of the installation the accuracy, speed and quality of transferred information is of a superior standard.
What is structured cabling?
Category 5e standards require copper cabling and connecting hardware to provide signal transmission at frequencies up to and including 100MHz (and 250MHz for Cat 6), with minimal signal loss over a distance of 100 metres - both capable of running Gigabit Ethernet. This exceeds most LAN requirements, however, we always implement the use of structured cabling to ensure your system can meet the demands of any new applications that become available.
What is Fibre Optic Cabling?
An optical fibre cable is a cable containing one or more optical fibres that are used to carry light. The fibre elements are individually coated with plastic layers and are contained in a protective tube, suitable for the environment where the cable will be deployed. Different types of cable are used for different applications, for example long distance telecommunication or providing a high-speed data connection between different parts of a building. Fibre Optic Cabling is used for linking remote sites and offices whose location prevents the use of copper based cables and offers a greater bandwidth than metal cables.
Wireless networking is a method by which businesses avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building. Wireless networks can be either
Microwave - used to connect two building networks together.
Infrared - used between buildings. This is cheaper and needs no licence but is not as fast and needs a clear line of sight between points.
Radio - used as a local connection where a clear line of sight is easier to achieve. Radio is the cheapest option.
All these three enhance a cabled system rather than replace the need for physical connections.
Either wireless systems has to have security measures applied to avoid conflict with neighbouring businesses and to avoid illegal access to the network.
Active Communications Limited can help your company meet the challenge of designing a communications cabling network which provides a solution that meets today's demands and yet has scope for adaptation for tomorrow's needs.
