Why Is Structured Cabling Important?
Businesses need to pay close attention to the underlying infrastructure that allows all their new tech to function. A quality structured cabling system allows a business to benefit from technology, such as Wi-Fi in a coffee shop, quality VOIP phone calls across the world, and instantaneous financial transactions and transfers of orders for goods.
Using the best cabling technologies available, including the latest in CAT connections, fiber and copper cabling, and data closet utilization, NEI can expertly deploy a structured cabling system that will let you make the most efficient use of technology and accomodate tomorrows new innovations with ease.
Fiber Optic Installation
Even business owners who are not very ‘tech minded’ will have heard of fiber optic cabling. They may also have heard that upgrading or supplementing their current systems with fiber optic cabling would be to their advantage. But often they really do not understand quite what fiber optic cables are or how they could benefit their unique business. That is something we would like to help explain here, to help you make the right decision about how this technology might benefit your business.
Fiber Optic Cabling Basics
In the past businesses have made use of copper cabling with high efficiency. However, some four decades ago the concept of the fiber optic cable emerged as a strong, competitive alternative.
A fiber optic cable consists of thin strands of glass, most no thicker than a human hair, that can transmit communications signals via pulses of light that are created using tiny LEDS. Light travels farther and faster and so the need for signal boosters to be installed in a fiber optic cabling system is decreased.
Two primary types of fiber optic cables exist: single mode and multi-mode fiber. Single mode fiber optics make use of those thin glass cables and a minute laser to generate the needed light while multi-mode fiber optics make use of a series of LEDs. The volume and type of communications signals they will be required to transmit determine which type is best for a particular installation.
What are the Advantages of fiber optic cable installation?
Fiber optic cabling can offer several advantages over traditional copper cabling for businesses:
The amount of data that a fiber optic cable can transmit routinely outstrips that of a copper cable. These days fiber optic cables with ratings of 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps and even 100 Gbps. This means that a business that makes use of several different technologies to keep it running will be able to do so with much higher efficiency. Higher capacity cables can be especially useful to businesses that utilize many audio and video components.
One of the big problems with copper cabling is that it is prone to interference from electromagnetics around it. Cable shielding helps, but even that is inefficient when several cables are placed near one another. Thanks to the glass they contain fiber optic cables are rarely affected by electromagnetic forces, eliminating this concern.
Fiber optic cabling is not always the right answer for every business though and alternative solutions may be more suitable. To discover and discuss if fiber optic cabling is a good fit for your company get in touch, we will be happy to listen and advise.
