Cat5/Cat6 Voice and Data Cabling

Any solid data/telephony network is based on a quality data cabling infrastructure which holds the whole system together. Without a good quality data cabling system, the data will be transmitted at a slower rate, increasing the risk of information being corrupted or lost.

Structured Cabling

Structured data cabling installation is highly flexible and allows you to maximise space and enable the rapid deployment or redeployment of PC and telephone hardware.

We can install data cabling solutions which range in size from 1 to 3000 outlets and have experience in a wide variety of different environments including Education, Hotels, Manufacturing, Computer Centre’s and Financial Institutions

Where does Copper (Cat5e/Cat6) end and Fibre start?

With the limitations of copper restricted to a maximum of 90 metres, if you require your network to extend beyond this point it becomes necessary to introduce Fibre Optic Cabling. By using media converters to change the signal’s capabilities from Copper to Fibre, you connect two cabinets together and have the beginnings of a basic data cabling Network.

If the network requires 2 or more buildings to be connected together you would use fibre in the same way. Extending the Network into another building gives users access to the same computer files and telephone systems as the main office. Solar can install all forms of fibre, Single-mode, Multimode and Blown Fibre.

Fibre Optics

Fibre optics are used to send signals from one location to another in the form of light guided through thin fibres of glass or plastic. These signals can be voice, data or video information in an analogue or digital form. Fibre optics transport information more quickly than any copper wire.

If you are looking to upgrade your existing data cabling system or would like an all-new system which meets your exact needs, Solar will provide an expert solution. For bespoke data cabling, Solar should be your first port of call.
