Lifespan of Cabling

Cabling can last between 15-20 years before it needs to be replaced. The network equipment you need for your digital communications will need to be replaced around three or four times before your cabling system reaches the end of its life. Cabling will normally set you back around 15% of your complete network cost. By investing in the right cabling solutions for your needs, you can minimize downtime, cut down on maintenance and enjoy enhanced performance.

Types of Network Cables

At DataWorld we conduct network cabling installations from the following two broad categories:

Copper Cable and Mixed Networks

Though copper can seem costly, technological advancements have made it a lot more reliable compared to the way it was in the past. Not too long ago, copper was primarily used for low-speed, short-distance networks. However, it is now able to deliver 10GB speeds, thus its popularity has risen tremendously over recent years. Many of DataWorld’s clients choose to opt for mixed networks which include copper cable and a fiber backbone. Should you ever have any queries about whether copper is right for you, simply get in touch with our support team and experts for advice based on your specific circumstances and budget.

Available Network Cablings

CAT7 cabling

Category 7 cabling describes a form of cabling used for Gigabit Ethernet and is able to deliver efficiency of up to 600MHz. It is perfect for smart homes as well as businesses seeking the highest standard of performance available to them. CAT7 differs from its predecessors like CAT 5 and CAT 6 for numerous reasons. One of the main reasons for choosing CAT7 is that its twisted pairs are shielded, meaning you can look forward to enhanced noise resistance when you opt for this solution. Although CAT7 may be expensive and therefore beyond many budgets, if you do have the capital to spare you can expect to enjoy an excellent return-on-investment and to enjoy vast efficiency years into the future once it is installed.

CAT6 cabling

CAT6 can meet most household needs and is backwards-compatible. It is also relatively easy to install and somewhat cheaper than CAT7. A point of information on caution though, CAT 6 cable installation sometimes pulls cool air through cracks in ceilings and may deliver carbon monoxide backdrafts. CAT6 is the best solutions for home customers because it delivers all the speed customers need to perform everyday tasks like downloading, streaming and gaming. It is also a worthwhile solution for small-to-medium office environments. Both the standard CAT6 and CAT6A are available in DataWorld stores. CAT6A is designed around more tightly-twisted conductors and has separators between wires so crosstalk can be reduced or eliminated, and insulation can be improved. Modular connectors are often required to connect the cables.

Cat5 cable wiring

CAT5 offers excellent cost-efficiency. There are two types of CAT5 available in our stock, standard CAT5 and CAT5E. CAT5, CAT6 and CAT7 cables all have the standard Ethernet plug that fits cozily into most computers, routers and switches. You can expect to save around 30% by opting for CAT5 instead of standard CAT6 and around 60% for choosing CAT5 over CAT6E, which makes it a perfect solution for many on a tight budget. CAT5E is 24 gauge and can run Gigabet networks for up to 328 feet. It is mostly used in conjunction with CAT6. CAT5E is an enhanced version of CAT5 featuring superior specifications for crosstalk. CAT5 and CAT5E can support networks running at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. CAT5E is backwards-compatible with CAT5, meaning one can use it in any application where CAT5 would usually be utilized. CAT5E supports Gigabit Ethernet and networks running at 1000Mbps. CAT5E also features higher bandwidth than CAT5, providing 100 MHz rather than 350 MHz.
