Cat 5e Cabling
Cat 5e is an economical solution for businesses operating in short term lease office spaces to cut down costs of running a more expensive cable type. To optimize the network performance running on Cat5e, this implementation is appropriate when the distance between the networking points is up to 300 feet and with internet speeds up to 1GB.
Briggs Electric recommends Cat5e data cabling solution for:
Office spaces on shorter term leases, to bring the cost of installation down.
The twisted-pair Cat5e supports both Analog and VOIP Phone systems. So, if your short term goal is to switch from your Analog phone system to VOIP, then this is a good choice to save on cabling costs.
Data networks to support fewer users/network devices/Wi-Fi concurrent users
IP camera systems of an appropriate size that fits in with your internet speeds & other networking devices.
Cat 6 Cabling
A “high- preforming” networking cable at a higher price point than Cat5e. Cat 6 is great for businesses that heavily rely on IT for their day to day operations, need scalability to accommodate a growing workforce and to support your IT ecosystem that thrives on high speed data transmissions. Cat 6 is packed slightly tighter than Cat5e, thereby preventing signal transmission losses, network errors and lesser cross-talk interference. Cat 6 is designed to perform at frequencies up to 250 GHz and at internet speeds over 1GB and up to 10GB
Briggs Electric recommend Cat6 data cabling solutions for:
Offices with multiple network devices, larger number of concurrent onsite and remote users.
When there is a need for continuous data uploads which results in heavy data consumption.
When you have Daily Scheduled Server & Client Station Backups daily.
Need fail safe servers running proprietary applications in-house.
Need for high speed internet up to 10GB, but may have to compromise on the cable run lengths.
Cat 6a Cabling
Cat6a data cabling is the latest of the Gigabit Ethernet cabling. Cat 6a (a – stands for augmented) is more expensive and performs better than its predecessor Cat6. Cat6a performs at double the frequencies of Cat6, at 250 MHz – 500 MHz. Cat6a is used in large scale applications where we must have a superior quality data transmission over longer distances, with minimal to no cross-talk interference.
Contact us to find out if your IT network is a candidate for Cat6a cabling and your existing network needs the power boost of a Cat6a network.
