Your telephone and cabling network
Our expertise at your service
Your network infrastructure shouldn’t be taken lightly. In fact, your network cabling and phone quality has a direct impact on your data and the fluidity of your communications, things you don’t want to compromise. They should always be optimal and highly efficient. Installing cable can be hazardous. You’re dealing with potential high voltage wiring and you don’t want to risk someone getting hurt. Cat-Comm has a team of certified network installation professionals that know exactly how to do the job right, keeping things safe and efficient..
Cat-Comm also uses the best products available in the industry, including high-end cables and sockets. We can help you build the room that’s dedicated to your servers, install new cabling, move existing cables or reorganize and structure what you already have. Trust our expertise and we’ll set everything up in the best way possible for your business needs.
Category 6 network cabling
Category 6 cabling is a standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling and other network protocols that are retrocompatible with Category 5/5e and Category 3 standards. Cat 6 has specifications that even more strict with regards to crosstalk and systems noise. The standard cable performs at up to 250 MHz and works for 10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet). It’s expected to work for the 10GBASE-T (10 Gigabit Ethernet) but with restrictions on the length of the cable, if the Cat. 6 cable isn’t protected with a shielder.
The cable has 4 pairs of twisted copper wires, just like cabling first standards. Although the Cat 6 is made with 23 gauge cable, it’s not mandatory. ANSI/TIA-568-B.2-1 standard says the cable can be made with 22 or 24 gauge, as long as the cable meets testing standards.
Cat. 6 connectors are made to the highest standards to reduce noise produced by the system et crosstalk. The NEXT (close crosstalk) and PSNEXT (Power Sum NEXT) reductions are all significantly lower, compared to Cat-5/5e.
Cat. 6 cables are sometimes to large and are difficult to include with 8P8C connectors, with a special modular piece. They are not technically standard. If different standard cables are mixed, the signal’s performance will be limited to the lowest performing category. As with all cables defined by ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B, the maximum length permitted by a Cat. 6 cable is 100 meters (330 feet), depending on the length of the patch cord.
Fiber optic network cabling
Fiber optic is normally used to obtain optimal operational speed, or when cabling distances surpasse the 100 meter limit allowed for traditional copper cables.
Fiber optic technology transmits information from point A to point B, by sending light through optic fiber. The light forms electromagnetic light that is modulated to transmit information. Originally developed in the 70s, fiber optic, or optical fiber, revolutionized the telecommunications industry. Because of its advantages over electrical transmission, the use of fiber optic has largely replaced communications through copper, for basic networking infrastructures.
