Data and Voice Cabling

Cable is the basic building block for local area networks (LANs). Challenges arise as these networks commonly reach 100Mbps gigabit and beyond, especially for unshielded twisted pair (UTP) networks. With any network, performance is very important, so if your company's cabling does not have the capacity of bandwidth required when new and faster technologies emerge, the network is unlikely to function properly and not sustain the load.

Standards are rapidly evolving, and performance demands on cable, connecting hardware and testing equipment far exceeding those of only a couple of years ago. Companies make significant investments to upgrade network equipment, but the cabling often gets little attention, and literally gets shoved into the closet. If the cabling doesn't work, the network doesn't work. Estimates suggest that cabling problems account for up to 70% of all LAN or WAN (wide area network) failures, and the resulting network downtime costs companies millions of dollars in lost productivity, idle resources, and lost revenues. It is essential to understand how to get the best performance from your cabling investment, and find faults quickly when they occur. CompuSource has the installation methods, equipment, resources and staff to ensure your network is up to speed.

We also offer trouble-shooting services, and can diagnose the health of any single cable or an entire cable plant system. We can certify our work to ensure that the cable is working to its fullest capability.

Most cable failures are caused by low quality installation practices. As most managers realize, the cost to troubleshoot and repair poorly installed cabling problems is at least 10 times the cost of doing it right in the beginning. Unfortunately, we spend a great deal of time rescuing customers from someone else's low quality cable installations. Poor quality cabling is difficult to troubleshoot and pinpoint. CompuSource works very hard to complete your job efficiently and correctly the first time.
