Data & Voice Networks

We at Datalec know that your data network cabling system carries the lifeblood of your organization - informationin the form of data.

The installation, material, quality of cable and testing procedures are all much more critical in data wiring than in voice.
The main reason for this is that networks today are designed to carry large amounts of information at incredible speeds.

In recent years data network speeds have increased from 10 million bits of information per second, over Category 3 wire, back in 1991 to 1 billion bits at present. With bandwidth increasing and reliance on the data network at an all time high, getting information to where it needs to be is becoming more imperative than ever. If you talk to any IT department what their most common data network problem is and the most probable answer you are likely to hear is cabling issues. In fact, cabling problems, which account for over 80% of data network problems, cost companies millions every year.

Among the most common problems are:

Cable damage
Low attenuation
Impedance issues
Poor NEXT (near-end crosstalk)
Poor delay skew (data arrives at different times)
Poor ACR (attenuation-to-crosstalk ratio)
Poor return loss (echo)
Poor ELFEXT (equal-level far-end crosstalk)

Our cabling solutions:

Cat5e/UTP/FTP/STP/LSZH/PVC Cabling Systems
Cat 6/UTP/STP/LSZH/PVC Cabling Systems
Cat6a/STP/LSZH Cabling Systems Capable of up to 10Gig
Fibre Optic Multimode/Singlemode cabling to any
specifications you may require.
Coaxial Cabling

All of these problems can be avoided if the cabling is installed and tested properly. The cable must be installed following strict and specific guidelines and the testing must be done using the right equipment calibrated for the latest standards (called certification). Datalec provides this sevice with each cabling data network installation.
