Enterprise Communications is proud to service San Francisco and its surrounding areas for structured cabling services for businesses and residential customers.
It is essential for any business to keep pace with the development of new technologies, both for voice and data systems. Ensuring that the structured cabling is up-to-date is essential in order to keep up with the latest products and services from phone, cable, computer, and Internet providers.
Structured Cabling requires extensive working knowledge and experience not only of technology, but also of workspaces and business sizes. Nowadays, the majority of new installations utilize Cat6 wires for horizontal cabling to a central station although more and more are transitioning to Cat 7 wires. Cat 7 and Cat6 cabling improves upon the performance of Cat5e, providing performance up to up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) supporting communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e.
Unlike the devices it supports such as phones, computers, mobile devices, and even video and audio systems, structured cabling is meant to last for decades. Careful planning is necessary to ensure that the cabling installed is appropriate for the current and future needs of the business.
Structured cabling is the infrastructure that supports any LAN (local area network). Your LAN supports all of your telecommunications – phone, email, file sharing, data transfers, video surveillance and anything else that requires the transfer of information. Together, they enable you to connect to wider networks (such as Internet Service Providers). Structured cabling therefore is the backbone of the IT network, a complex system of routers, switches, and servers facilitating the transfer large amounts of secure data, sharing of a printer between numerous computers or devices, or providing Internet access for web browsing or email.
