What is expected during a scheduled data cable service

If you have scheduled a data cable service, you may be wondering what to expect. There are a few essential qualities such as professionalism, proper installation, and cable management. You don’t have to worry about the previous infrastructure, as work will be done taking them into account. Work will also be done according to the local codes regarding data cable servicing in your area.

But what exactly happens during a data cable service?

What Happens During the Data Cable Installation Process

In order to do cabling for a small or a medium-sized business, hundreds of feet of cables might be required. There will be a lot of tasks involving drilling, cutting cables, as well as attaching jacks. Always approach a professional data cable service provider, as they can provide you with reliable and professional service.

1. Planning

The first step involved in network cabling is planning. You’ll need to take into account your present needs, as well as future growth. A good tip is to determine whether the cabling used in your building will be available for future applications.

2. Managing and Maintaining Cables

The same cables will be used for data and voice transmission during your data cabling service. Many businesses have started running their phone system as well as their data network within the same network. It isn’t enough to install the cables; keep in mind they will need to be managed and maintained.

3. Cables Should Not Run Alongside Electric Cables

Data cables tend to be made using unshielded pairs of wires that are twisted on the inside. This enables a magnetic field to be generated. However, this data cable doesn’t have protection against magnetic fields that are produced by electric cables. As a result, your signal may not run or be static, needing you to reinstall the system.

4. Limitations of Cable Length

Keep in mind there is a maximum cable length that your cables will be able to support. A standard cable, for example, runs for around ninety meters. There are situations where you can increase or decrease this length, depending on the type of cable.

5. Cabling Standards Should be Followed

When cabling standards are followed, your data cables will be installed using a standardized approach. The efficiency of your cables, as well as data networks, can be improved.

What is Expected From You During the Cabling Service

In case the construction project is a new one, then the architectural drawings need to be ready. The cabinets chosen in the operatory should be prepared as well. As soon as you have decided who the contractors will be, consider getting in touch with us. Alternatively, wait till you have all the necessary permits before getting in touch with us.

However, keep in mind that you should get in touch before the construction framing is set up. If the drywall is already up before your data cabling service, there could be an issue. In this case, the data cables will need to go through the drywall, requiring construction to be done again. This will also increase the amount you’ll need to pay for your cabling service. Should you not have a central place for the wiring, consider choosing a site where all the wiring can be managed.

You should also provide us with information on whether physical firewalls and infrastructural or building restrictions are in place. In case you operate out of a busy office and require the data cable installers to come in after hours. Then they will be able to do so, provided they have access to your office.

My life has been surrounded with computers since I was a child, from my first job as a Computer Assembly Assistant to the current ownership of Priority Networks, a dental focused networking company. Starting with an Apple computer connecting to other networks when I was only 13 years old, I quickly knew this passion would lead to bigger ventures. As the internet started to evolve, I immediately worked for an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This gave me insight to the power of worldwide internet communications and the capabilities of sharing data across multiple networks simultaneously. The dedication towards this field has given me the advantage of understanding new technologies and grasping complicated issues quickly from software, hardware, networking, security, management and much more. As a Computer Network Manager for Tesma International, a division of Magna International, I gained the experience of becoming a qualified NAI Network Sniffer, EDI Communications Specialist, Head Securities Manager, MRP Manufacturing Integration Manager, and received several enhanced managerial and technological training courses. Moving forward to today, I apply all my knowledge, training and years of solid network experience to deliver the very best support to all my customers at Priority Networks.
