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. Poorly designed cabling will not only experience downtime when things go wrong, but will also cost more to maintain. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it difficult to relocate infrastructure?

It can be a daunting task when it comes to relocating your infrastructure, however our team endeavour to make the transition smooth and simple. We will give you assistance and advice at every step of the process to prevent major disruptions and help you comfortably relocate.

How does a company ensure that their data is secure during a relocation or consolidation project?

The best way for a company to ensure the safety of their data during relocation is to use a professional company that has experience in the task. IDC Solutions has been in the business of making sure businesses have peace of mind when surrounded by potential risk for over 40 years, and is fully experienced with any conceivable disaster scenario that can befall companies.

What are the biggest challenges you face when relocating to a new data center?

Some of the biggest challenges that data center operators face when moving to a new data center are:

  1. Developing the right migration plan.
  2. Taking all necessary precautions before, during and after migration.
  3. Addressing any downstream consequences of migrations.
What should I consider when planning our office’s IT relocation, to keep within budget and meet the deadlines?

Good planning will help your relocation go smoothly and avoid unnecessary costs and lost productivity. An IT move is more complex than simply moving furniture from one place to another. The first step in IDC Solutions’ planning is to consider three essential things:

  1. Your organisation’s current technology needs.
  2. Your organisation’s future technology and infrastructure needs.
  3. Your budget.

Assess your new location in detail. Will the network infrastructure of the previous tenants be sufficient for you? For example, if you work in multimedia you may need to rewire the entire office if you are taking it over from an administrative company that needs only minimal bandwidth.

Ask your property manager for a detailed property plan, showing voice and data network jacks, and electrical outlets. Alternatively, draw your own plan, being careful to measure rooms accurately and show the layout of the existing infrastructure. Mark any areas where you think there may not be enough power and network access. Use the plan to try different configurations of equipment, in consultation with your co-workers and staff. And use it to plan ahead – such as adding network wiring and access points to currently unused areas, so you are ready for future office expansion.

If you plan on keeping your servers at your office, make sure you have a suitable server room. Check that your servers will fit and that it has good independent air conditioning, i.e. a supply that won’t turn warm in Winter or that air conditioning can be installed. Will the room need more data drops and is there capacity for additional servers in the future?

When it comes to installing network and phone cables, involve your installers and network professionals as soon as possible. Your pre-planning will help you to communicate your needs, both now and in the future, so that you can take advantage of their expertise when it comes to planning the implementation. A few hiccups are part of every move, but with a solid plan in place, you will reduce the potential for problems – and you will be able to resolve any that do arise much more efficiently.

Better network design resulting in more efficient data cabling for increased productivity

Structured cabling is a network of cables that are strategically positioned and run through a building, office or campus (there are many more scenarios, but they are just a few to get started). The benefits of using structured cabling in data centres include:

●    Organisation and Labeling (did someone say OCD?)

●    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)

If you want to know more about structured cabling, we’ve got experts for that. Our team has been designing these solutions since before things like Wi-Fi or Internet were even cool.

Our Structured Data Cabling specialists are certified technicians with years of experience.
