Voice and data cabling?
Data Cabling and Voice cabling are one of the most important components of any business, because of its potential to connect an office to the outside world. You could have tons of high quality equipment, but it would mean nothing if you were unable to network all of it together cohesively.
The cabling itself is more complicated to put in than just drilling holes and cutting cables to attach computers to printers. Proper cabling involves networking your PC, telephone, printer and fax machine to each other. WiFi may be a staple of our day-to-day lives, but cabling ends up being much faster, and is necessary regardless if you want to connect your office to the rest of the World Wide Web.
Upgrading From Analogue Systems
Legacy analogue systems are still in place in many offices, but companies are finally starting to upgrade in order to better network together phones and computers over digital systems. Voice cabling for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems are becoming the gold standard for offices, as they allow for more portability, and as a result, structured cabling is rapidly being adopted.
There are numerous benefits to VOIP systems, some of which are shown below:
- It is easier to install and maintain
- VOIP systems are much more scalable
- There are many more call features
- Employees can receive and make calls wherever they go
It is possible to future proof your system so that you can employ past cabling systems and strategically update these systems to meet all your potential needs in the future. This results in much cheaper expenses, although you would require someone with higher expertise to consult you on the best way of executing this sort of an upgrade.
Investing in Voice and Data Cabling
Often, when there are problems with the connectivity of the office, the problems lie with the cabling and infrastructure. Poorly executed cabling can result in interference, which is when light or a kinked cable ruins the connection. This is exactly why your company should make sure not to cut corners with cabling solutions.
Investing in your cabling is always an intelligent move, and it begins with testing your infrastructure to see what your current capabilities are. Cabling professionals have the necessary equipment to do this, and should be able to provide you with a printout of your cabling specs for future reference.
