Why is data cabling so important?
Your network can only perform as much as your data cabling allows, so choosing a data cable with specifications that will support these transmissions is vital. When it comes to wireless networks, ensuring a reliable, clean and speedy connection between switches and access points is especially important. With hundreds of devices often connecting to a single AP, it is – in part – the quality of your data cabling that determines whether the performance promised by your switches and access points reaches the end user or device.
How do I choose the right data cables?
Poor quality data cabling – or the wrong specification of cabling for your requirements – results in increased interference, slower or interrupted packet delivery, intermittent connectivity, and ultimately worse performance for the end user or device. It is therefore essential that you make an informed and well-advised choice when it comes to choosing the right data cables for your organisation.
The type of cabling you need will depend on the technology you want to connect to your network, the environment and construction of your workplace (indoor/outdoor, underground, building type), as well as your budget. You also need to consider your future requirements; your network is constantly evolving as technology advances, so your data cabling needs to be able to support tomorrow’s bandwidth and throughput demands.
