A reliable and speedy IT infrastructure has many parts that keep it running as it should. Sometimes you need a completely new installation (such as when you move into a new space), or you need an upgrade. These are times you may consider switching your cabling configuration. An upgrade to a CAT 5 & CAT 6 networking cabling installation in Thousand Oaks is a great idea for many telecommunications businesses because it allows their maximization speeds.
How Do I Know Which Type of Cabling I Need?
The team at Endless Communications, Inc. can help you decide which type of CAT cable to choose. Overall, there are four major types: CAT 5, CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT6A. Each one has its merit, and depending upon what your needs are, one may be a standout choice over the other for you.
Some of the questions we may ask as you’re deciding which type of cabling to have installed are if you own or lease your facility, if you plan to use any PoE (Power over Ethernet) devices – or if you plan to use a training room or a conference room, and if this is for a manufacturing company. Some CAT cables are better than others at some things – for instance, CAT 6 cabling is best for PoE applications, so if you’re planning to use Power over Ethernet devices regularly, then your choice is pretty straightforward. If you are mainly concerned about high speed and nothing else, then 6A is the best choice.
