Cable Installation


What type of data cabling should I use for my business?

There are several types of data cabling available, including Category 5e (Cat5e), Category 6 (Cat6), and Category 6a (Cat6a). Cat5e is the most common and cost-effective option for most small and medium-sized businesses. However, if you require higher bandwidth or want to future-proof your cabling, Cat6 or Cat6a may be a better choice.

How many cables do I need for my business?

The number of cables you need depends on the number of devices you plan to connect to your network. In general, it’s a good idea to install at least one cable per device, plus a few extra for future growth. You may also want to consider running separate cables for voice and data to ensure optimal performance.

How should I organise my cables?

Proper cable organisation is important for both aesthetics and functionality. Use cable ties or Velcro straps to bundle cables together and avoid tangles. Label each cable with its destination to make it easier to troubleshoot problems in the future. Consider using cable trays or conduits to protect and conceal your cables.

How do I test my cables to ensure they're working properly?

Before you start using your network, it’s important to test your cables to ensure they’re working properly. You can use a cable tester to check for continuity, shorts, and mis wires. You should also test your network speed using a tool like Speedtest.net to ensure you’re getting the performance you expect.

Should I hire a professional to install my data cabling?

While it’s possible to install data cabling yourself, it’s generally recommended to hire a professional to ensure the job is done correctly. A professional installer will have the tools, knowledge, and experience to install your cabling safely and efficiently. They can also help you choose the best type of cabling for your business and ensure your network is running optimally.
