Structured Cable Plants
As an installer of structured cable plants, we only use Hellermann
Tyton cable and termination products. We believe them to be of
the highest quality and reliability. Indeed, if you require,
we can have our installation certified for a 25-year performance
warranty from Hellermann Tyton themselves. We install entire
new cable plants as well as add to existing cable plants that you
may already have installed.
A carefully implemented structured cabling system provides a fully integrated method of transferring data, voice and video signals around a building. Such an infrastructure ensures reliable performance and the flexibility to meet the requirements for future growth and change. A structured cabling system designed in accordance with international standards will ensure predictable performance across a broad range of connected equipment. Currently, there is a fifty-fifty split between the installation of category 5 enhanced and category 6 cabling systems.
Category 5E Cable Plants
Category 5 enhanced (Category 5e) defines the performance of a cable infrastructure capable of supporting a network speed of 1000 Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet). Generally; this is implemented using Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable. Gigabit Ethernet uses all four pairs to transmit data simultaneously. Category 5e specifies a comprehensive series of tests that measure the suitability of a cabling system to transmitting data on all four pairs, particularly with respect to cross talk and return loss, enabling the demands of Gigabit Ethernet and of course less demanding network protocols to be met.
Category 6 Cable Plants
Category 6 is capable of a transmission frequency of 200 MHz and uses UTP or FTP cable and RJ45 connectors. As with Category 5 and Category 5E before it, Category 6 cabling system are constructed from their components compliant parts to produce and end-to-end channel that delivers the performance necessary to minimise the bit error rate of the transmitted signals.
