Reliable Data Cabling Installations
For businesses, schools and new and existing office spaces.
Proper network connectivity is a crucial component in the world of business, allowing us to accurately communicate with staff and customers, to pay bills and wages, and many other important business processes. Internal data cabling networks must be working at optimum performance to ensure staff can share and retrieve information without delay.
LG Networks have more than 15 years experience in voice, security and data cabling installation. This includes the installation and maintenance of both new and existing networks, Cat5, Cat6 and fibre optic installations, as well as the auditing and certifying of old data networks that may need a bit of attention.
Areas of work
We carry out data cabling installations for SMEs (typically 10-100 staff), schools, local and central governments, International brands, and have also managed some major infrastructure projects including The Shard, The Savoy Hotel and the Olympic Delivery Authority. We operate within the ‘West-End to Southend corridor’ which includes most of Essex and London.
We typically help businesses that are:
- Relocating premises
- Upgrading or expanding their I.T network
- Just starting out
- Needing changes made to their existing data cabling network.
CAT5e has been the industry standard for many year. Cheap and easy to install, it can transmit up to 100Mb of data up to a distance of 100 meters. It is rarely used in new installations due to the requirements of higher bandwidth now provided by CAT6.
CAT6 cable is now the default standard of 95% of data cabling installations in offices. It’s slightly more expensive than CAT5e in material cost, and the required installation standards are slightly higher. The cable is unable to exceed certain bend radii and tighter terminations are required. The benefit is that the cable can carry data speeds of up to a Gigabit over a 100m distance, dwarfing its CAT5 predecessor.
Fibre Optic Networks
With the increased cost of copper and the reduction in the cost of fibre, the balance of installation is shifting increasingly towards fibre optics. Fibre can carry 10 times the amount of data over 20x the distance in a single core, reducing installation time and material bulk. Fibre optic networks provide a solid and future proof solution that’s suitable in the majority of situations.
