Invest for the future

Cabling is one of the most significant parts of your network and has the most longevity, normally lasting between 15-20 years. You can expect to replace your network equipment around three to four times before you need to replace your cabling system and you should expect cabling to cost around 15% of your entire network cost. It really is worth investing in the right cabling solutions so you can enjoy less downtime, less maintenance and better performance.

The resurgence of copper

Copper can be expensive, but it is now much more reliable than it once was. Historically it was used for low-speed short-distance networks, but now that copper cable can run at 10GB rates, it has regained popularity. Some of our customers choose to opt for mixed networks consisting of a fibre backbone and copper cable.

Fibre optic cabling

There are many advantages attached to fibre optic cabling. This kind of cabling is faster and more reliable than traditional cabling and is used to connect computer networks, telephones, CCTV and broadband. It is less expensive than copper wire and is also lighter and thinner. What’s more is that it uses less power, whilst the reduced signal degradation results in clearer phone calls without echo. Fibre Optic cabling can also carry bigger volumes of data so it’s perfect for the modern-day needs of large organisations.

  • It is less expensive than equivalent lengths of copper wire
  • It is thinner, lighter and has a higher carrying capacity
  • It uses less power
  • There is less signal degradation and the result is clearer phone calls with no echo effect
  • It carries high volumes of digital information

The importance of cable

  • Cabling is one of the most important components of your network and is the most long-lived with an expected life span of 15-20 years.
  • You’ll most likely replace your network equipment three to four times over the life of the cabling system.
  • Plan on cabling to be about 15% of your total network cost and don’t skimp on the cable or the installation. An investment in a high-quality cabling system is easily justified in reduced downtime, reduced maintenance, and better network performance.
  • Think long-term and buy the best cable and installation services.

Cabling considerations

  • The type of network you plan to run will influence the cable you choose
  • Anticipate changes and upgrades in equipment and 20 years maximum
  • Review the maximum distance between your network switches and the farthest desktop
  • Consider bend radius and available space for running cables in the floor and ceiling
  • Is there existing or abandoned cable that needs to be removed?
  • EMI(electromagnetic interference) Must check for this
  • Any physical limitations that could affect your cable choice?

Choosing cable

When planning your cabling infrastructure, you have two basic choices; copper or fibre. Both offer superior data transmission.  The decision on which one to use depends on your current network, your future networking needs, and your applications, including bandwith, distances, environment, cost and more.

Traditionally, copper was used in lower speed, short distanced networks, and fibre was used in higher-speed, long-distanced networks. But with the advent of copper cable running at 10-gigabit rates, this maxim no longer holds true. You may even find a mixed network with a fibre backbone and copper horizontal cable to be an optimum solution.

Contacting us

Get in touch with MSE today if you need help selecting the right cabling for your needs. The type of network you’re running or planning to run can play a big role in deciding what kind of cabling you opt for, and you’ll need to consider factors like future equipment upgrades and distances between network switches and computers. You’ll also need to think about EMI or electromagnetic interference and whether existing cable needs to be removed.

We can install, maintain, repair and attend to all your cabling needs. Talk to MSE today if you require help with data cabling installations, cable network solutions, network wiring, network cabling repair or network testing. We would be happy to help.
