Cat 5e, Cat 6 Phone, Data Cabling

Network Cabling Infrastructure Service in Dallas Fort Worth, TX



                                         

Office Telesystems provides phone, data and video cabling, along with network cabling infrastructure for any size office in Dallas Fort Worth. This includes fiber cable implementations. Larger cabling projects are available nationally. For cabling and network infrastructure, Office Telesystems follows the old adage that “it’s better to do it right the first time”. Not doing it right the first time could cost your company far more than it saved by choosing older cable option or design. Not choosing the correct design could cripple a network and bring about the wrath of it’s users. No one wants that!! Choosing the right design up front, even if it cost more initially, could save you money long term on costly upgrades of your cabling later. Office Telesystems provides phone, data and video cabling in Dallas Fort Worth for any size office, and larger projects nationally. Office Telesystems also includes cabling installation and infrastructure required for your VoIP solution or system network. Cat 5e and Cat 6 cabling is available for voice and data, along with fiber for larger bandwidth requirements. RG6 and other options are available for video.

Also, plan your voice and network cabling project sooner rather than later, especially most cabling needs to be done while in the construction phase of your new or remodeled offices. It could not only save you money, it can possibly help prevent headaches with your cabling design later on down the road.

Cat 5e, Cat6, Fiber Cable for Voice and Data Cabling

With Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and cloud phone systems (also known as hosted VoIP) as the future of telephone systems (though hybrid digital phone systems are still very relevant in today's office environment), phone cabling has now become network cabling as well.  At Office Telesystems we use only cat 5, cat 6 or fiber cable runs for phone and data cabling, and often for video cabling as well. If you have cat 3 voice grade cable in place, this can still be used for analog, digital or hybrid digital/IP environments. However, moving to cat 5e/6 or fiber cable ensures you that if and when you do add VoIP handsets in your office, or need faster internet, you're ready. Your existing analog or digital handsets will work on cat 5 or cat 6 cabling as well. In your wiring closet, the terminations points of choice are cat 5/6 patch panels ranging from 12, 24 or 48 ports on wall mounted or floor mounted racks with the appropriate wire management. This provides easy troubleshooting and port relocation, with less service costs long term for single or multi user who relocate within the office. Fiber is primarily used as a backbone cable in most networks and requires special connectivity, depending on the application. Contact our experts at Office Telesystems for more information.


   

Existing Cat 3 Cabling Still Utilized on Hybrid IP 

Existing category 3 cabling can still be utilized for digital and analog phones, fax lines and analog conference phones used with hybrid VoIP and digital systems. As we've mentioned, Office Telesystems uses cat 5, cat 6 or fiber cabling for voice, data and often for video connectivity as well. When cat 3 voice cable is used in conjunction with your cat 5 or 6 cabling, you will have the option of using digital or analog handsets on the cat 3, but for VoIP handsets and other VoIP devices including VoIP cameras, you'll need cat 5/6 cable, and in some cases a fiber backbone. However, installation of only cat 5/6 cabling allows for easy modification to different style handsets later.  If you follow the industry trend, your next system will be a VoIP system, whether cloud/hosted or on premise, if it's not already. Also, when voice, data and video cables originate from the same closet, this makes it a painless transition. Cat 6/6A cable will be more expensive than cat 5, but you have more options with cat 6 now and later, including a Gigabit network and usage of Gigabit VoIP phones. A large majority of VoIP telephone systems on the market today require only 1 cable for voice and data connectivity. Also, since cat 5 or cat 6 cable is 4 pair, this gives our customers the option and flexibility to install any combination or type of analog, digital or VoIP phones at any location, depending on your network design.


Cat 5 or Cat 6 Jacks for Phone, Data and/or Video Cabling



For many customers we install dual Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables to each location for phone, data and/or video cabling. In some cases we install 3, 4 or even 6 plex jacks if you need multiple device connectivity for voice, data, or video 
in one spot . As mentioned, one cable could be used for both the VoIP desk phone and network connection.  This can reduce network and cabling costs. Your voice, data and video needs will vary depending on the type phone system and type desk phones you have, along with network requirements for each user.  For most office environments, we usually recommend a dual cat 5/6 duplex drop at each location for phone and data, with a 3rd for video or other device if needed.  As mentioned, fiber is primarly used as a backbone cable in most networks, including VoIP applications.

Phone, data and video cabling services need to be well thought out and planned in advance. Whichever type system you have and whatever type telephone handset your users have, Office Telesystems has the right phone, data, or video cabling solution for you.
