Nowadays data cabling is a must have for any business. Whether it’s a small start-up or a large corporate, data cabling enables businesses to run a phone network, computer network, or a data network within it’s organisation. However as businesses grow and their data cabling needs too, how can businesses ensure companies get the best out of their communication network?
Colour coding is vital and can be utilised to make a data cabling system better in a number of ways. Firstly, it makes the installed network appear much more professional. This is achieved by using either one colour or colour groups. Secondly when cables are coloured to match their destination or application, it also helps to make the system more organised, because if a cable develops a fault or needs maintenance, it can easily be traced back to source. Finally colour can also be used to add branding to a system, especially when any cabling is exposed within an office premises.
Install a sufficient cooling system
If you don’t want to incur hardware damage, then you might want to look at installing a proper cooling system. This is more important for larger businesses with lots of data cabling needs. In these cases over heating can become a massive problem. Cabling can get very hot causing the malfunction of servers. When servers go down, large businesses can incur huge financial losses. Installing a cooling network can go a long way to keeping cables and servers functioning correctly.
Centralising your data
Any clients looking to have a data network installed on their business premises would benefit from a centralised area where data is stored. Centralised data areas help to cut down the amount of cabling needed because they limit the distance between the data centre and the end destination. Ultimately this lowers cabling costs. In addition it also reduces the chances of any cabling getting mixed up along the route.
Switching to fibre optics
If you have coaxial or Ethernet cabling then it can be drastically improved by switching it to fibre optic cabling. Fibre optic data cabling has the capacity to send/receive data at a much faster rate as well as delivering voice quality that’s far superior. While making the switch is initially a big undertaking, the end results are that you’ll have a better streamlined system that will remain fully operational as your business grows.
