Data cabling is something that is strategically important for many businesses. In short, it allows you to use your end devices in the workplace. If you’re not familiar with the world of data cabling, allow us to share our expertise and provide you with answers to some of the most commonly asked questions surrounding the topic. 


What is data cabling?

Data cabling is a method of connecting end devices within an IT network. It allows you to connect devices such as printers, computers, phones servers and even CCTV cameras. There are two main types of data cable, namely copper and fibre, which run through floor boxes or wall point. They’re usually situated near the device (or devices) that require connectivity, although fibre cables can typically run longer than copper cables. 


When is data cabling needed?

With technology constantly evolving, organisations are having to work harder to gain a competitive edge. We now live in a time where data, video, voice and multimedia are essential to modern businesses. As this advanced IT technology becomes more ingrained in our day-to-day lives, the increasing need for high-speed access as well as an increase in the amount of users can put pressure on existing data networks and cabling systems. If this is the case, performance can be limited and network failure can even occur. The next step is upgrading your cabling infrastructure. This is something that ICT Solutions can offer your business.


What’s the most cost-effective option – renting or purchasing data cables?

At ICT Solutions, we provide 24/7 emergency fibre repair. You might be surprised to find out that we actually offer this when you purchase cables from us. Most IT providers rent out data cables, but we actually allow you to buy them (something that’s often cheaper long-term) whilst still offering continuous maintenance. So if you choose us as your provider, purchasing cables is ultimately the cheaper option.
