Setting up a steady and long-lasting Network Cabling at your home or workspace does not require becoming an expert in electrical systems. Understanding the basics of network cables, how different types of network cables cater to different commercial locations, and internet requirements must be kept in mind while opting for a network cabling system.
At homes and small business locations, the requirement might be less but that should not hamper the expected quality and result. Premier Electrical Services furnishes you with top-notch structured cabling, network cabling, and rack installation services in the US. They specialize in handling electrical services for residential and small business locations in catering to each business’ needs individually.
Why is Cabling Required?
Cabling networks link us to the internet through wiring that’s safe, reliable, and strong. This is especially important in places like homes and offices where local networks are active. In the most basic terms, these cables let you connect to the Internet without having to plug them directly into your devices.
Differences Between Cabling Types
Network cables come in a variety of forms, which also determines which system is better. Twisted pair cables are the most commonly used type of communication cable for networking. They have a less sturdy outer casing.
There are three types of twisted-pair cables:
● Category 3 cables
● Category 5e cables
● Category 6 cables
The latter is an enhanced version of the former and has more stringent performance standards that make it ideal for HD video streaming and smooth data backup. If you have a small area with only a few computers, then you might require cables like Category 3 and Category 5 cables.
Category 5e cables are suitable for most Ethernet connections and can transmit up to 100MHz. On the other hand, if you have a large office space with a lot of computers and electronic devices, then you need high-end category 6 cables.
To make sure that your network cabling is set up the right way by and in the presence of licensed electricians, you can contact Premier Electrical Services. From understanding your needs to curating a plan that works the best for your budget, they manifest what to look for from an expert.
Server Rack Installation Checklist
Determining how big your server and rack are should be the first step towards setting up rack installation at your home or office. Before you start, you’ll need to know your server’s mountable width, depth, and height. After that, you must check if your server is suitable for your rack’s mounting.
Rack units, which are equivalent to three holes on your rack, are used to measure height. There are relatively few deviations to the normal width of 19 inches. Since the depth is the most changeable dimension of server racks and mounting equipment, rails and shelves are often adjustable in depth.
Without an adapter kit or a 2 post / 4 post rail kit, your full-sized server will not fit in a 2 post rack. When your equipment isn’t broad enough for your rack or is too deep / not deep enough, adapters can help.
You must also be able to determine the kind of holes in your server rack, which may be threaded, unthreaded, or square. If you’re utilizing a tool-free rail or shelf, you’ll probably only be able to use a square hole rack. Cage nuts must first be installed before a threaded hole rail can be attached to a square hole rack.
If all of this seems too overwhelming, you can simply reach out to Premier Electrical Services and let them handle everything from cable installations to upgrades. They strive to deliver the highest quality and prompt services at your doorstep with 100% satisfaction.
Structured Cabling System And Its Importance
A Structured Cabling System refers to the cable installation and design that supports multiple hardware user systems. For example, category 5e cables and category 6 cables can be part of a bundled structured cable design, thus providing the infrastructure to connect a phone, PC, CCTV cameras, Wi-Fi, and television by just plugging it in differently at the main cable area where all the cables originate from.
Cabling infrastructure that is structured for all technology determines the functioning of electrical systems considerably. One of the biggest examples of this is old telephone wiring for PBX systems that now needs upgrading for VoIP. The requirement of legacy CCTV cabling and Wi-Fi cabling has also alleviated due to the increase in technology and surpassing old cabling standards. The new standards cover a range of expectations such as how the cabling should enter a building and be terminated, the type, construction, and size of the entrance facility, the number of cables to be allowed for the user and workspace area.
Based on the correct design of the structured cabling system, it will provide predictable performance and aid future expansion. Furthermore, it will also assist in easier future relocations or changes in location.
Adopting Right Standards Of Structured Cabling
The structured cabling system should cover all elements of the building, hardware and technology requirements and bring them all into a central design. Infrastructure must be installed to ensure that the hardware performs at its required levels of work.
