What is Data Cabling?
From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_cable):
A data cable is any media that allows baseband transmissions (binary 1,0’s) from a transmitter to a receiver. Examples Are:
- Networking Media
- Ethernet Cables (Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a)
- Token Ring Cables (Cat4)
- Coaxial cable
- optical fiber cable; see fiber-optic communication
- Telecommunications Cable ( Cat2 or telephone cord)
Data Cabling is a broad term which describes the running of data cables for a computer network environment, telecommunications equipment such as an office phone system, or other types of cable such as coaxial cable. Data Cabling can be subdivided into, and is often synonymous with, Network Cabling and Fiber Optic Cabling, since “Data” is a general term which may include networks and fiber optics.
Data Cabling often comes into play in a business environment when it comes to planning new office space, an office move, or the acquisition of a new network server or phone system. At DS1 Communications, our tem of data cabling installers will determine how much cabling is needed, and how best to run it so it accomplishes its task, and at the same time not leaving unsightly cables sticking out of walls or clumsily running over base boards or ceilings. Installing data cable requires experience in running cable through ceiling panels and walls in such a way that the end result is neat and clean, so the office visitors and employees are often unaware that the cable even exists.
Cable will often be run through walls and ceiling to wall jacks and data closets or rooms, requiring expertise on the part of the cable installer. Our team of data cabling installers have performed this work countless times with excellent outcomes. We offer data cabling to the entire South Florida area, including Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boca Raton, as well as the entire Washington, DC metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs.
