Cabling Needs for Your Business

How to choose what kind of Cat (category) cabling for your business needs.

Networks need to be connected. Your business’s copper cabling needs may be Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a or even Cat7 or higher.

The question most asked today is: What kind of cabling should I install in my new business?

To address this question we first have to look at your current and future data speed needs.

For instance a medical office that works with very high resolution digital x-rays that need to be retrieved and sent to the workstation instantly for medical review would absolutely benefit from Cat 6a or even higher.

However a small office who engages in zero video-conferencing and only needs medical records and internet access then most likely Cat 5e will suffice.

Ask us about cable certification to ensure that your devices are receiving the speeds that your network was designed to deliver.
