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.
