Inside Copper Cabling
Copper has been used as a component of electric wiring since the 1820s. It acts as the electrical conductor in many different categories of cables used in structured cabling. Every copper cable is made of at least two copper wires that run through the length of the cable together, either side by side, twisted, or braided to form one unit. Copper wires come in many different forms for many different functions; our technicians are all highly certified in copper wiring and have the expertise to determine which form works best for every facility’s needs.
Twisted pair cabling is very popular in data networks due to its relative low cost. It is less expensive than either coaxial cables or optical fiber, but can only be run for short or medium length connections. Unshielded twisted pair cables, or UTP cables, are used for telephone and computer networks cabling. These cables are often used as patch cables for temporary connections. Most UTP cables are hidden out of sight, either inside walls or above ceilings. The downside of UTP wires are that they are the easiest to tap into, and are therefore not used for high security risk projects. Types of UTP cables include:
- Category 3 cable
- Category 5e cable
- Category 6 cable
As a solution to facilities that need higher security in their structured cabling, there are shielded twisted pair cables, or STP cables, that prevent electromagnetic interference. Common types of cabling that use shields include:
- Category 6a cable
- Category 7 cable
- Category 8 cable
Coaxial cables are another form of copper cables, but they are different than UTP and STP cables. They are often used for data connections in computer networks, video distribution, and to connect radio transmitters and receivers with antennas. These cables can be run for longer distances than UTP cables, but are more costly and much more difficult to work with.
The advent of completely wireless systems was once a concern for the future of copper cabling, and structured cabling in general. However, while wireless systems do have some advantages, copper-wired systems support higher bandwidths – meaning much faster speeds than wireless systems. Copper systems are also much more secure than wireless systems, and less susceptible to interference from other devices or systems.
NetQ Multimedia provides certified Category 6 (standard and augmented) and Category 5e copper connectivity solutions for voice, video, data, building automation, ESS and nurse call. Our copper cabling network installation services come with a multi-year warranty (the length of the warranty depends on the vendor) when installed by NetQ Multimedia. All copper cabling solutions are installed, tested, and certified to meet or exceed the latest ANSI/TIA-568 standard specifications.
High Quality and Speed Inter-Connectivity
Not only is copper cabling reliable and durable, it is also fast; and who doesn’t want high-speed connectivity? Of all the metal wire and cabling, copper is the best conductor; facilitating data communication with speed and ease, and ultimately benefiting your cabling infrastructure. Additionally, copper wire is extremely flexible: an ideal quality for your network cabling infrastructure. To properly create your data space, it is sometimes necessary to run copper cabling through tight spaces, and we want to ensure that the cabling doesn’t damage. The flexibility of copper cabling allows us to do that with ease. Copper cabling network installation at your workplace will pave the way for durability, speed, flexibility, and conductivity – delivering the best possible networking system for your needs.
Years of Success and More to Come
For the past 30 years, NetQ has taken great pride in always giving its clients the highest quality products and the best possible service in the industry. Regarding the future, we realize there will be different advances in the cabling that will surge over older alternatives. These variances in structure and products will make it difficult when trying to decide which system you should use. We’re here to help: offering you the best fit for your needs. For instance; in recent years, fiber optic cabling has become a popular alternative to copper cable, but with different pros and cons. Keeping up to date with current developments in network cabling infrastructures, we are able to offer you fast and reliable copper cabling network installation in the most modern and adaptable way.
