Why Network Cabling San Francisco?
Instead of taking a risk with an unknown provider, choose San Francisco Network Cabling to design the best network solution for your company. Having completed more than a decade of successful cabling projects has established our company as the leader in data cabling installations. Every project is backed by a 25-year warranty on certified San Francisco data cabling systems. When the structured cabling system is installed correctly, the return on the investment will be noticeable and substantial over the life of the system. Companies all over San Francisco are making the right decision and installing fiber optic computer cabling systems that will not require re-cabling in the future. Every type of cabling for voice and data communications is available, including:
- Cat 5
- Cat 5e
- Cat 6
- Cat 3
- Fiber Optic
- Cable TV
- Phone installation
- Video & Audio
- Voice & Data Cabling
Considerations When Installing Network Cables
Every component of a San Francisco data cabling network plays an important role in the speed of transmission. Many well-meaning technical gurus emphasize the type of cable that connects all of the elements, but there are times that the Cat5e data cabling is not the problem, and Cat6 might not provide the solution.
Many issues must be addressed prior to embarking on the quest to upgrade the data and voice cabling because major upgrade projects can be expensive. The modem, server, router, switches and other pieces of equipment might be faster than the Cat5e cabling. Network uses must be defined so that the best network decisions can be made. Surfing the Internet, data entry, streaming video and graphic design efforts all demand a different level of performance from the computer cabling. When the business anticipates growth in the future, the network must be adaptable to the business needs.
Budget constraints might dictate the possibilities when installing a new fiber optic network. New cabling systems should be of the highest possible quality to prevent the need for future upgrades. Most businesses will grow in the future and network traffic will increase as demands on the system increase. When an existing system becomes sluggish, a full system diagnostic should be performed to find the system components that require an upgrade. Replacing cable will be an expensive project that consumes valuable resources. Older equipment that is no longer properly integrated might be the source of system slowdowns.
Crosstalk and interference usually requires cable replacement. Old Cat 5 cable is very susceptible to interference and does not cancel noise. If the existing cable is the source of network issues, Cat 5e can be installed to address the crosstalk issue. Cat 6 is even better because it has a much lower noise ratio.
What Is Network Cabling?
The network cables that interconnect all of the office equipment, including computers, printers and phones, to each other and the internet make up the communication backbone of the company’s business network. Data moves from point to point over the cabling according to various communication protocols. The industry standard for San Francisco voice cabling was always twisted pair copper cable, which is still used for most data and voice cabling networks. Technological demands for higher speeds and larger bandwidths will require replacing much of the existing Ethernet cabling with fiber optic cabling.
How Would Network Cabling Help Your Business?
Technology will continue to advance at breakneck speed and fiber optic cabling will provide the capacity necessary to keep up with changing requirements. There are many benefits that every company can realize from working with San Francisco Network Cabling, including:
- Vast distances – Signal repeaters are not required on fiber optic networks even when long distances must be transverse. Copper cables require signal repeaters to restore signal integrity every 325 feet.
- Intrusions prevented – An electronic signal that would travel a copper network can be intercepted, but light signals that travel over fiber optic strands cannot be intercepted. The dielectric mode in which fiber optic cable can operate makes remote exposure impossible. To intercept a light signal the fiber would have to be physically interrupted.
- Advances – Fiber optic cable technology continues to advance to provide longer strand lengths, smaller diameter cables and extremely lightweight cables. All of these features make installation and maintenance easy.
- Increased data transmission speeds – Large quantities of information can traverse a fiber optic cable at remarkable speed which improves performance for uploads and downloads. The overall network performance is increased because data travels so much faster through a light signal.
- Less interference – Light signals are not susceptible to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). Since copper wiring is not part of the network, the cabling is completely protected from EMI.
- Lower costs – Fiber optic cable is composed of hair-like strands of glass that can be produced in extremely long lengths at a much lower cost than conventional copper cable. When material costs are lower, the cost of the entire system will be less.
- Smaller cables – Since each strand is tinier than copper wire, the cables are much smaller in diameter and lighter in weight. More strands of fiber will be packed into one wire which allows more data to travel over the network than over Ethernet cabling networks.
- Signal strength – Light signals retain their strength as they travel down a fiber optic strand so the signal will not degrade.
- Lower power requirements – Low-voltage generators are part of the fiber optic network so the amount of power used is minimal in comparison to copper networks.
- Improved safety – Technicians will work in safety since electrical impulses are not carried on the fiber optic cables. The threat of a building fire is minimized as well.
Fiber optic cabling systems have many more advantages than existing copper wire systems that have been used in San Francisco voice cabling systems for decades. When the time comes to replace the Ethernet cabling that has become obsolete, the best choice is to call San Francisco Network Cabling and have that first conversation.
