Data cabling installations to Cat 5, 5e and Cat 6
Data collection and management are vital in today’s business world. The need for high speed data transfer is commonplace, and has now become a basic requirement for all retailing and commercial environments. The correct cabling installation and connections are crucial factors.
At T E Ramm, we have considerable experience in data installations, working in both new build and upgrade projects for a wide range of clients. Our own qualified engineers install the data cabling either as a stand alone project or as part of an installation package and our qualified testing team ensures that terminating and testing are completed to the highest standard.
This combination of skills ensures that the installation will achieve the high levels of performance you demand.
As data networks support ever growing demands including VoIP telephony and IP CCTV, combined with hardware upgrades and replacements, the network cabling is often forgotten. Cabling that worked under lower load conditions will not perform in a busy network and combined with age can create problems and slow the network to a crawl.
Testing the data cabling with a cable analyserwill ensure that the cable is tested for all the parameters across the range of frequencies required for the cable to comply with the TIA regulations. A certificate will be produced that will show the state of the cabling at the time of the test and this can be compared with the certificate provided when the cabling was installed to check for signs of degradation. A sample of a certificate is shown below.
Livewire test and provide certificates for all of the data installations we perform as standard using our own test equipment. All records are stored on our central database using software and backed up off site to ensure your records will always be available for you. The records are send to the customer in an easily accessed pdf format.
Testing the network is a cost effective step in isolating the cause of slow or unreliable networks and is a pre-requisite for VoIP telephone being implemented.
