With today's advances in cabling technology and increasing bandwidth requirements, it is critical to consider the dynamics between network protocols, cabling system performance and life-cycle costs. Your mission-critical network is only as good as the infrastructure it is built on. DFW Phone provides each of our clients with a strategic approach to a broad range of network infrastructure solutions according to their needs in the present as well as the future.
- Data Cabling
- Voice Cabling
- Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6a Installation & Repair
- Wire Management, Patch Panel Termination, Testing, Certification
- Fiber Optics (Single or Multi mode)
Our data cabling projects are completed within full accordance of the TIA/ISO standards. DFW Phone has the expertise and the tools to certify your network infrastructure if you choose to do so. With our certification y ou will get professional, easy to read test reports documenting a quality installed network so that you can expect to get maximum speed from your investment.
Category 3 Cable
The popularity of Cat3 cable as a cost effective means of deploying voice services remains robust since the majority of business telephones only require a single pair of wires to operate. Originally designed to carry data at up to speeds of 10Mbit/s, Cat3 has been replaced by Cat5e for higher data speed demands.
Category 5e Cable.
Cat5e replaced Cat5 as a standard in 2001. The most common applications are 100BASE-T or "common" data networks and the increasingly popular VOIP systems. With 100Mbit/s capacity, Cat5e is the most common cable of choice used today.
Category 6 Cable
Cat 6 is a communications cable with four twisted copper pairs. While also having the same distance limitation of 90m for horizontal runs as previous copper standards, Cat6 Cable meets even more stringent specifications for both crosstalk and system noise.
Category 7 Cabling
Category 7 cable or Cat 7 is backwards compatible with Cat 6 and Cat5e ethernet cable, and it performs at frequencies up to 600 MHz.. Cat7 is designed with even more stringent specifications for dealing with cross talk and noise. Shielding has been added to each individual pair to accomplish the superior performance. Cat7 uses both the RJ45 connector as well as GG45 electrical connectors. When termination is done with TERA
DFW Phone can install, terminated and test category 3, category 5e and category 6 cabling. We can design your network to meet and exceed the standards set out in the TIA/ISO standards. DFW Phone can install, test and terminate fiber cabling to meet TIA/ISO standards.
