Communications Cabling

Conducting business in the current e-commerce environment, almost every business and government facility relies heavily on the robust interconnection technology of communications cabling. Because they require a highly functional data network, the communications cabling that is associated with it has become an essential connectivity requirement. Whether it’s transmitted by voice, video, computer, or any other electronic media, consistently reliable distribution of information via structured communications cabling is necessary to carry critical information between sources.

Defined as cabling systems designed and installed to support multiple forms of data transmission, communications cabling should also allow for both current and future requirements so that the infrastructure can handle any rate of growth or expansion. When done properly, communications cabling usually includes firestopping, proper bonding and grounding, as well as cable support hardware. Modern day companies require quality convergence of cabling services for both voice and data to allow support of various communication services including video conferencing, security applications, VoIP, CCTV, cable TV, and much more.

To ensure the technology is scalable for all your future business operations, you need to ensure that the cabling system supports your requirements for any future growth and additional infrastructure. The key to ensuring a high-performance network infrastructure with quality communications cabling is planning. Having an organized cabling system is important, as clear wire labeling ensures more better working conditions and flexibility. Also, in case of any problem, it becomes easier to troubleshoot an organized cabling system thereby improving productivity.

Improper cabling causes around 80% of all communication failures. Design and installation of communications cabling is governed by a strict set of standards that specify the wiring types used for voice and data communications in offices, educational facilities, data centers, retail stores, and residential buildings. These standards permit the use of Cat5e, Cat6, Fiber Optic, or Coaxial cables and dictate installation of cabling in order to meet customer needs for various topologies. Communications cabling also determines the bandwidth and capacity of the available networks, which translates directly into the capabilities of your business.

A critical component of any modern and successful business, a properly functioning communications cable installation requires in-depth knowledge and ample experience with the wide variety of cable types and their capabilities. The certified cable experts from Buchmann Electric can provide you with the right data cabling system for your communications, which allows you to interface all kinds of necessary business equipment. This includes but certainly isn’t limited to phones, faxes, computers, and conferencing hardware.

Wireless Access Points

A common task in many structured cabling projects is the installation of wireless access points or WAPs which includes the running of two 6A category cables to the location of each WAP device. WAPs are password protected which allows access to the network for anyone with smart devices like phones and laptops, without needing to be plugged directly into the traditional cabling outlet.

Fiber Optics

Buchmann Electric design, install, maintain, and test fiber-optic cabling systems, specializing in fusion splicing and fiber-cable termination for both multi- and single-mode, as well as testing for light-source and power meterage and optical time-domain reflectometer or OTDR, plus any other type of repair work required. To minimize any possible data network problems, Buchmann Electric works hard to stay up to date with all the current standards for fiber-optic cable termination and testing.

Buchmann Electric designs and installs all kinds of systems for communication cabling including voice, data, security, access, fire and other alarms, as well as requirements for building management and no voltage fiber optic applications. Installations like these typically include a panel for each modular connection to be utilized as required, with active outlets then linked into a network switch, an IP address, or patch panel for a PBX (private branch exchange) telephone system.

Our experienced electrical technicians always utilize best practices of cable management to supply practical solutions with the flexibility to match client requirements while cooperating with service providers. Buchmann Electric offers communication cabling solutions from initial design all the way up to implementation, while ensuring it’s all been installed correctly. The advantages of this includes dependability and consistency, which makes investigating faults and future sealing much easier, while also improving efficiency and lowering costs.

We can design and install your complete system of communication cabling, from the backbone of fiber optics to the phone jack installed at each workstation, including all the pathways to get the information there. Buchmann Electric is a member of Building Industry Consulting Services International (BICSI) while also adhering to TIA and ANSI standards.
