Copper and Fibre Optic Installations


Stay ahead of technology, stay ahead of the competition.

Copper and fibre optic installations are technically complicated and require research, strategic expertise, practice with materials, as well as good knowledge of safety codes and universal standards. Let IDC Solutions take the guesswork out of this complicated procedure.

You need a copper and fibre installation company you can trust!


It is important to have your copper and fibre optic installations done professionally for many reasons; it’s not even possible to list all the benefits they provide. The truth is that front-end installation can make or break an organisation, leaving them light years ahead of the competition or left to languish in no man’s land. Whilst you may not see much difference between competitors, over time it will become clear that at IDC Solutions, we REALLY know what we are doing when it comes to your cables.

Whether it is copper or fibre optic cables, having them professionally installed and maintained could save you thousands in repair costs down the line.

We’ve got the right cables for you!


Installing the right high-performance cables plays a huge role in an organisation’s ability to compete in today’s digital world.

IDC Solutions has years of experience; with our industry best practices, so we make it easy for you to make accurate decisions when it comes to the type of cables you need. We know it’s a big decision, so we will guide you through the process to ensure that the right one is installed.

And when it comes to that difference? The right cables can prevent downtime and allow you to experience better connectivity, security and efficiency. A professional installation along with the right choice of cables, could also save you time and money. It’s a win win.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does IDC specialise in fibre optic cabling?

Yes. We have over 20 years of experience in all types of fibre optic technologies.

Why would I need to run an optical fibre cable as opposed to a copper data cable?

The standard for copper data cables can run at a maximum length of 90 metres before the signal needs to be boosted to maintain proper operation. Optical fibre cables can be run for many kilometres before requiring an amplified signal, and as such can be used to link multiple central points.

Is it hard to install copper or fibre optic cabling?

Installing copper and fibre optic cabling is a specialised job that requires a lot of experience and knowledge to install properly. Making connections with fragile wires can be a tedious task which can be time consuming and challenging. The right installation can save you time and money, whereas the wrong installation could cost downtime and lower efficiency.

What is the difference between Cat5, Cat6 and Cat6a?

The main difference is the speed of the connection. Cat5 has a maximum speed of 0.1GB/s, Cat6 1GBs, and Cat6a 10GB/s. Therefore, allowing reliability for current applications and higher data rates for future applications.

RACK INSTALLATIONS


We are the #1 choice for your rack installation needs

Our experience in the industry, our quality work and attention to detail make us the perfect choice for your rack installation needs. Our team of professionals have the knowledge to install your racks effectively and efficiently.

We can help with your rack installations


Racks are very common pieces of server equipment used for storing servers, routers, switches and other high density hardware. They come in various shapes and sizes depending on the needs of an organisation or installation. A rack designed for IT closets is usually cheaper than one that would be used for a data centre because it’s not as large. It is recommended to have the data rack professionally installed by IDC Solutions to prevent any mistakes being made which can be costly. We offer a range of professional data rack services that involve installation, maintenance and removal. The process involves determining the appropriate location to install the rack, locating cables in order to power up specific equipment and installing it in a safe manner.

You will be satisfied with our service.


If you are running a business or organisation, you want your equipment to be as secure as possible. A professional installer can ensure that the data rack is built with all of the right conditions to allow for a smooth and strong airflow and cable management along with environmental controls, so the equipment stays cool and dust free. Technology professionals often demand highly sensitive equipment, so it’s important to take necessary precautions in order to protect this specialized hardware, software and firmware once installed.

We here at IDC Solutions strive to maintain such professionalism by delivering premier quality of workmanship while providing an unsurpassed level of customer service that has transformed into our foremost priority.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of data centre equipment is installed on the racks?

A data center rack is essentially the framework which houses your IT equipment. Most racks hold servers, the equipment that makes up a data center, however often you may find equipment for network, power, cooling and telecommunications. You may also find backup power, cords and other IT equipment.

How many wires are needed to complete a data rack installation?

The number of cables will vary depending on the complexity of the rack design. If you have any specific details, feel free to reach out to the IDC Solutions team for assistance.

What do you think is the most important consideration when installing a new data rack?

The data rack chosen needs to match the physical needs, as far as space and power requirements. It is important to have zero downtime of the equipment and speedy time to complete the installation. Our professional team can discuss your requirements and offer solutions based on your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is an AV installation worth the cost?

For most home and business owners, they find the return investment for an AV installation is absolutely worth it. There are a number of benefits to consider when weighing the cost-effectiveness of the installation and since the results will vary depending on individual tastes and needs, you should always consult IDC Solutions for more information before deciding what’s best for you, your business and your team.

What are the top 3 things you should think about when installing an AV system?

  1. The goals and objectives of the installation – is the AV system designed to be a temporary setup, or do you want to install an audio and visual system that will last?
  2. Physical constraints – is there sufficient space for the necessary components or are they required to be hidden? What’s your approach to dealing with decorative consideration in the room where you’re installing this equipment?
  3. Budget – there is a huge range in the cost of an AV system and for good video and sound it can be a substantial investment
What are some common AV installation mistakes that businesses make?

Some common AV installation mistakes people make include:

  • Cutting corners by not covering all components of an AV installation. This can lead to video hiccups, audio drops and other issues
  • Not having a backup plan such as a reliable backup power source for emergency situations or replacement equipment.
  • Incorrectly estimating power needs
  • Lack of input/feedback during the design process, leading to specialised rack designs that require more than one person to assemble and install
  • Disregarding fire code regulations when installing both equipment and furniture
  • Planning for scalability
Do you need to have AV installations completed professionally?

Absolutely. If not, you could end up with a variety of simple to complicated problems like picture or sound interference, wires bouncing around and getting into everything, faulty wiring that can start fires, expensive repair costs for something that should come with a warranty.

●    Easier troubleshooting and problem diagnosis

●    High protection and fewer risks of disruption to the system

●    Increased speed for data transmission between rooms or floors

●    Keeps redundant paths open

●    Safety (think lower fire risk or electrical hazards)
