Fiber Optic Cable Cross Section

Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber optic cable is the fastest way to transmit data over long distances such as building to building or floor to floor.  This hair thin glass (or fused silica) strand is capable of data transmission speeds of 500 MBPS (millions of bytes per second) or more.  Use of this type of cable is usually to connect buildings or floors to a companies high speed network.  It does this by converting low voltage signals transmitted through the networks copper (Category-5) cable into a pulse of light.   This is done by an Optical Transceiver; one of these relatively inexpensive devices is placed at each end of the fiber and is connected through a fiber optic patch cord to the AUI port on the back of the networks hubs.  Once in place on the network these transceivers, coupled with the fiber optic cable itself provide a constant (virtual), high speed connection to the companies network.

Key Benefits

  • Building to Building, Floor to Floor connectivity
  • High speed data transmission
  • Cost of cable has dramatically decreased, making it the logical choice when linking floors or buildings.
  • Provides a strong backbone to high speed networks

    Category-5 Data Cable

    Category-5 Data Cable

    Category-5 cable is the most commonly used type of cable in station cabling.  This type of cable gets its name from the number of twists per inch in the pairs of the cable, meaning there are five twists   per inch in the pairs of the cable.  This twisting of pairs enables the cable, which is made of copper, to transmit data at much higher speeds than would be possible without them.  This twisted copper cable is capable of transmission speeds of 100MBPS (millions of bytes per second) or more.  Use of this type of cable is usually to connect individual work stations throughout a building to the network.  It does this by transmitting low voltage signals from the workstation through the cable to the hub and into the companies server.  Once in place these cables will allow users to share resources and printers on a network with higher speed connections than would be possible with standard CAT-3 twisted pair telephone wire.

    Key Benefits

  • Station to station, station to server connectivity

  • High speed data transmission

  • Cost of cable is relatively inexpensive

  • Provides strong station to station, station to server connection to high speed networks


    Category-3 Telephone Cable

    Category-3 Telephone Cable

    Category-3 cable is the most commonly used type of cable in telephone cabling.  This type of cable gets its name from the number of twists per inch in the pairs of the cable, meaning there are three twists per inch in the pairs of the cable.   This twisting of pairs enables the cable, which is made of copper, to transmit data at much higher speeds than would be possible without them.  Use of this type of cable is usually to connect telephones, fax machines and modems throughout a building to the companies telephone system or dial tones. 

    Key Benefits

  • Station to Telephone System, Station to Dial tone connectivity
  • Cost of cable is relatively inexpensive
  • Provides a permanent connection to the telephone system or dial tones

    Our Systems

    Each and every one of our cabling systems is unique, as every company we cable has different needs.  Every cabling system we install is custom tailored to meet these needs, whether it requires CAT-5 and CAT-3 cabling to the work station or a combination of CAT-5, CAT-3 and fiber optic.  Regardless of the design every cable is run to the highest of industry standards regarding premise wiring and tested end to end for continuity.  Every cable is tested to the industries TIA/EIA standards in the case of CAT-5 all cables will be tested to TIA/EIA 568B standards prior to the completion of the installation.
