Setting up a communication system in a residence or business begins with the cable that connects all of the subsystems to each other. Structured cabling design and installation is governed by a set of industry standards for data or voice communications using various kinds of cable, most commonly category 3 (CAT-3), category 5e (CAT-5e), category 6 (CAT-6), fiber optic cable and modular connections. These standards characterize the various cabling topologies for specific applications, and typically connect to and from a central distribution or “patch” panel.  

Modems, gigabit routers and switches maintain an uninterrupted flow of digital information to networking components, wireless internet access points, IP or PBX (private branch exchange) telephone systems and a variety of other hardware that relies on these connections. This distribution enclosure keeps the required components and wiring properly organized, neat and operating at peak efficiency. From this junction each modular connection can be made as needed, and it also facilitates easy troubleshooting, modification or expansion of the network if and when necessary.  

No two systems are alike, therefore each must be custom designed and deployed to accommodate the specific needs of our clients. A small business might have a basic analog phone system comprised of a data panel of several call stations, and a large corporation may require a collection of individual communication networks, transmission systems, relay stations and data terminal equipment capable of integrating to form a unified, stable and powerful solution.

Our business revolves primarily around the planning and implementation of telephone and data networks, so we can truly say we are experts at what we do. It all starts with a consultation to define your communication needs, followed on by our design of a custom package that will meet all of the requirements your project may have. We have extensive experience with the assembly and installation of distribution panels and all of the associated low-voltage wire management to which they are connected.  No job is too big or too small – we have done them all. Cable infrastructure is like the vascular system of your business, delivering data where it needs to go and keeping the operation always in motion.
