The installation, material, quality of cable and testing procedures are all much more critical in data wiring than in voice. The main reason for this is that networks today are designed to carry large amounts of information at incredible speeds.
To accomplish this over unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP), many different criteria must be met. This is why it’s crucial that your cabling design and installation is overseen by manufacturer-trained personnel who will ensure that your data cabling installation meets all the performance specified by the standards.
Certified by every major manufacturer, LANSource can provide certified systems with applications warranties up to 25 years. We engineer and install industry standard Copper Data Cabling Systems to provide you with solid low-voltage infrastructure for voice, data, video, CCTV, access control, and building automation systems.
Today’s network cabling systems have to cope with the ever-growing demands of greater and greater bandwidth absorption within the local area network. LANSource have years of experience in designing, implementing, and project management from small to large scale Data Cabling System comprising:
Cat 5e cable is an enhanced version of Cat 5 that adds more stringent specifications for far end crosstalk. It was formally defined in 2001 in the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, which no longer recognizes the original Cat 5 specification. The tighter specifications associated with Cat 5e system make it an excellent choice for use with 100Mbps Ethernet and basic voice services.
(ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1) is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. Cat-6 features more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. The performance headroom provided by category 6 solutions makes it a reliable and safe choice to support all Class E applications including 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, PoE and PoEP.
Augmented Category 6 / Class EA, structured cabling is specified by cabling standards ISO/ IEC 11801 :2002 amendments 1 and 2 (Class EA) and TIA 568C (Augmented Cat6). The specifications of Cat.6A allow it to fully support 10GBASE-T applications in the Data Centre or desktop. Cat.6A is available in both shielded and unshielded system.
Category 7 cable (CAT7), (ISO/IEC 11801:2002 category 7/class F), is a cable standard for Ethernet and other interconnect technologies that can be made to be backwards compatible with traditional CAT5 and CAT6 Ethernet cable. CAT7 features even more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise than CAT6. To achieve this, shielding has been added for individual wire pairs and the cable as a whole. CAT7 cable is rated for transmission frequencies of up to 600 MHz and supports high bandwidth and high frequency multi-media broadcast and cable sharing applications.
