Wi-Fi is excellent. We all love it. We all use it. We all depend on it. Underneath any good wireless network for your Internet and phone capabilities lies important cabling. There is no arguing that having fast, reliable, and secure Internet is essential to operational success today. Do you know which connection options, fiber optic cable and or copper Ethernet cable best fits your company’s needs? Installing Cat 5 and coaxial cable or fiber optics for Internet, computer, telephone and other uses is yet another area of expertise at Priority 1 Computer.
You may not think that you’ll ever need an updated communication system for your business or home, but with the increasing digitizing of our society, you absolutely will.
The need for speed is now and with Priority 1 Computers we can show you how. It’s easy to feel quite intimidated by all the electronic jargon when it comes to terms for all things computers and especially for cabling systems. However, all you need to understand is that your telephone, TV, Internet, and other communication needs for your business can all be handled by running only two types of cable—all headquartered in a central distribution system. Priority 1 Computers is here to help you optimize the situation.
There is no shortage of applications for Ethernet cabling these days.
While Ethernet cabling like Cat 5 is the cheaper, sometimes a high-cost option like fiber optics is required. Fiber optics is great for faster speeds, security, and data delivery over long distances. Today, optical fiber cables that are used for Internet are synonymous with super speed and are especially useful for businesses of all sizes when transferring data over long distances. This pretty much describes most businesses today. Fiber optics cable is made up of strands of incredibly thin optically pure glass that carry digital information with light instead of electrical currents used with Ethernet.
Alternatively, Cat 5 is referred to as an Ethernet cable or LAN cable, and a Category 5 cable consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire with a connector. Cat 5 has a maximum length of 100m and exceeding this length without the aid of a bridge or other network device could cause network issues, which may or may not cause limitations.
At Priority 1 Computers, we know that each solution has its fair share of pros and cons, with unique benefits and limitations to each technology.
