Wiring and Cabling
Need help with your network infrastructure? LINKTECH can help. We design, install and maintain
networks. Additionally, we provide complete cable installation services and system integration. LINKTECH
will help you decide which type of infrastructure to install. Should it be category 5e or 6? Fiber-optics? Do
you need Switched, Ethernet 10MB/100MB/1GB? We will meet with you to prepare a detailed design in a
short period of time. Then, when you are ready, we will install and test your network.
Your cabling system is important for performance, reliability and the security of your data.
From decades of proven experience, LINKTECH understands the importance of a quality installation and considers your future needs and technologies during the design phase of your project.
For this very reason, LinkTech is staffed with design engineers who are certified with both BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Services International) and RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designer). Our team is dedicated to the success of your network!
There are three primary types of network wiring:
The industry standard in new installations, this wire comes in
several standards. Unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) Category 3 wire, often used for
phone lines. UTP Category 5e and 6 wire are the current networking standards for
voice, data, audio and video.
This cable resembles round cable television wiring.
This cable is usually reserved for connections between "backbone"
devices in larger networks, though in some very demanding environments, highly
fault-resistant fiber-optic cable is used to connect desktop workstations to the
network and to link to adjacent buildings. Fiber-optic cable is the most reliable
wiring, but also the most expensive.
LINKTECH selects the right cabling for our customer's offices and buildings. We
make sure that the wires running through ceilings and between walls can handle
not only your present needs, but any upgrades you foresee in the next several
For example, Ethernet can use UTP Category 3 wiring. However, Fast
Ethernet requires at least the higher-grade UTP Category 5e and 6 wiring. As
a result, all new wiring installations should be Category 5e and 6. In some cases,
we may explore fiber-to-the-desk. We work with your architect and/or review
existing drawings to ensure that the cabling infrastructure is suitable for your
environment and meets current standards and codes.
