Data cables are used to transmit electronic information from a source to a destination. Extensively used in computer and telecommunication systems the type of data cabling is either copper or fibre optics. These can then be divided into three main types:
- Twisted pair. (copper)
- Coax. (copper)
- Optic cables. (fibre)
Used in different environments, these data cables have different characteristics that make them identifiable.
- We can help plan and review wiring infrastructure and create a stable and efficient foundation for your network and phone system.
- Many companies only perform selected jobs, such as running cable, but are unable to complete the whole job — often requiring you to hire several companies for cabling, connecting jacks or connecting to equipment. Sunrize Communications can perform every part of the job for computer and phone wiring. You deal with a single company, avoiding delays, confusion and extra expense.
- Zeaba Solutions provides customized structured cabling plans with the ability to expand, upgrade and reconfigure your wiring needs to meet current and future business demands.
- We install computer network wiring (Cat5 & Cat 6), phone wiring (digital & analog), 25 pair trunk cable, and Coax. Installation includes everything; all cable, jacks, termination, & testing.
- Research has shown that up to 50% of all network problems are related to network cabling, but only 2% of network investments are allocated for data cabling. A cabling system should be a long-term investment, so be sure that it is properly designed to avoid future network problems.
