In the phrase telephone and data cabling the term â€œData Cablingâ€ applies to different ways of connecting together active devices. In the modern world telephone and data cabling connects computers to servers, modems, back-up storage and Internet. Telephone systems are now computerised and there is a greater incidence of pure IP implementations.Â telephone_and_data_cabling.pdf
Telephone and data cabling has evolved to its current technology level through many proprietary versions being brought to standardisation through agencies such as the TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) which has helped develop national and international networking benchmarks.
In the UK & Europe our telephone and data cabling will normally conform to CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6 specifications. Older telephony CW1308 and CAT3 is gradually being replaced with the newer formats.
It is crucial that your telephone and data cabling is installed by competent technicians who understand, and have been trained, to the criteria of the structured cabling system specified. Some electrical contractors will offer to install your telephone and data cabling but without adhering to the installation requirements, the finished cabling will not necessarily provide the data throughput guaranteed by the standard.
We supply all telephone and data cabling items, qualified components and implement them such that a certificate of conformance can be supplied, guaranteeing the data speeds demanded by todayâ€™s IT managers.
