What’s the benifit of being cabled?

What’s the benefit of being cabled? The Infrastructure is the core to any business or home, when you are using Data or Voice.  You would not use a hose pipe with holes in the pipe, so why use an inferior infrastructure.  AML recommend if you use a PC or Laptop and you never move it around then it really should be cabled.  As every cable installation is different, please contact the Cable Guy

Patch Panel

A Patch Panel is used to aid in the administration of a cabled network.  If you already have a cabled infrastructure AML “Cables” can add to your existing patch panel and install where necessary.   AML recommends using a Patch Panel for infrastructures with over 8 connections.  A Patch Panel is normally located within a cabinet.,/p>

Point – Point

Point – Point connections are used for simple small networks, AML recommends using this type of cabling for under 8 connections.

What is the general difference between category 5e and category 6?

The general difference between category 5e and category 6 is in the transmission performance, and extension of the available bandwidth from 100 MHz for category 5e to 200 MHz for category 6. This includes better insertion loss, near end crosstalk (NEXT), return loss, and equal level far end crosstalk (ELFEXT). These improvements provide a higher signal-to-noise ratio, allowing higher reliability for current applications and higher data rates for future applications.

When should I install category 6 vs. category 5e?

From a future proofing perspective, it is always better to install the best cabling available. This is because it is so difficult to replace cabling inside walls, in ducts under floors and other difficult places to access. The rationale is that cabling will last at least 10 years and will support at least four to five generations of equipment during that time. If future equipment running at much higher data rates requires better cabling, it will be very expensive to pull out category 5e cabling at a later time to install category 6 cabling. So why not do it for a premium of about 20 percent over category 5e on an installed basis?

Powerline

Powerline uses your Electricty cables to transmit data.  Powerline are superb for Home Users and Small Offices as there are no holes or cables to be installed.  It uses the power cables to send data around the building.  With enhanced security you can be assured that no one else is plugging a powerline into an external plug socket and accessing your data.  A typical installation could be a Home User using their XBOX or PS3 to play online games but suffer from an intermitent wireless connection.
