Data cabling: Understand the basics
As professionals, we get a lot of inquiries from businesses and companies for data cabling. Upon arrival, our experts carefully examine the whole office space. We take the complete responsibility to plan, execute, and test the business cables.
Over the past 15+ years, we have helped a lot of businesses to start with their data cabling needs. We have created a shortlist of key points to consider while data cabling a particular office/business.
You can through the same list to analyze your own data cabling needs by yourself.
1. Indentify the needs of your office/business
You may need to plan things accordingly. After all, nobody knows your business requirements better than you! Consider for the future needs as your business expands, your cabling needs will increase as well.
You can start with the total no of employees that need a telephone/internet connection.
Consider an estimate of both the future and current no. of employees. Here are some points that you need to know:
- What communications system would you use? (Landline or VoIP).
- Check the structure of your building?
- Do you have plans to share with other businesses?
All these points decide the number of cables and no. of ports/sockets required to facilitate your office operations.
For example: if you are looking to store your files on a server, then you should have a dedicated intranet. It might require setting up extra cables/sockets to keep your computers connected.
On the other side, if you store your files/documents on a cloud, you need extra cables to maintain the server.
Once you have all these points figured out, then you can contact a commercial electrician for advice.
2. How many Phones/Computers would be connected?
Everybody that data cabling is needed to connect your phones and computers.
Estimate the no. of phones/computers to be connected/used by your employees. When you contact our electricians, you need to provide an estimated number of phones/computers required to be connected.
Also, you need to understand whether you need cabling or not? These days many businesses are using wireless phones and computers. Hence you will need less cabling, as most of your devices would be wireless.
