CAT 5/6 Structured Network Cabling
CAT 5 / 6 structured cabled
computer networks can provide
comprehensive voice and data services for any
however, all networks aren't equal!
You could call out one of our technicians to survey your
computer network with no obligation or change. Call us
today to see if this applies to your area.
We only use the highest quality components and cable,
and we thoroughly test all installations.
To allow for the very fastest in network
transfer speeds we can also integrate fibre into our network
designs, from as little as server-to-network backbones,
through to complete fibre networks.
Making your business work
You can use the old leads on voice systems but never
use them on data networks.
Is it smooth running?
It is like throwing a load of rocks into a smooth
running stream, the data will probably still get
through at first but when you increase 'the flow',
they will start to impede the throughput.
If the problem
only affects one PC, take that PC to the patch cabinet and
plug it directly into the hub. This may seem like an obvious
thing to try but it has to be said as it proves whether the
fault is actually a cabling problem or not.
Leave your cabling to us
You should use a
known good port on the hub and a known good patch lead, if the
machine works then the problem is either the original hub
port, the patch lead, the drop lead or the fixed cabling.
here it is easy to eliminate each part of the link, but it
must be carried out methodically, one component at a time.
P.I.S. is not driven by any
single supplier so we can work together to create the
right cabling solution for your business.
The components used for the P.I.S.
Structured Cabling come with 20 year warranties
and are supplied by market leaders such as
Excel and Avaya.
Structured cabling solutions are defined by
"category". The category of any cabling solution will
determine the rate at which data can be transferred
across it. With
P.I.S. you can be sure that
the most appropriate cabling category for you will
have been rigorously tested to industry standards.
Cat 5 Copper cabling
Category 5 provides a
reliable, open infrastructure that will support all
LANs up to and including 100Mbit/s Ethernet.
Cat 5e cabling - For
LAN support up to and including 1000Mbit/s, look for
systems guaranteeing Gigabit Ethernet support - a
level to which all BT structured cabling schemes are
Cat 6 cabling - Provides higher performance
cabling systems, specified to 250MHz. Currently
supports systems up to 1 Gigabit, with potential to
support higher speeds in the future.
Cat 7 cabling - Specified to 600MHz, Cat 7 is a
'fully shielded' cabling system, which offers more
than twice the bandwidth of Cat 6 but is also both
bulkier and more expensive than Cat 5/6 cabling
Suitable for high speed fibre
transmission systems, including Gigabit Ethernet and
10 Gigabit Ethernet Backbone technology, utilising
second generation fibres such as OM1, OM2, OM3 and
Bespoke solution cabling
If you have a
specific structured cabling requirement
PIS can, for larger
installations, offer a bespoke installation service.
We can install any cabling scheme to your supplied
specifications, including IBM Type 1 and Cat 7 schemes
subject to survey.
