When is a cable not just a cable? When it’s the conduit for data transport throughout an organization. When it’s the bridge between data and the people who need to access it from anywhere at any time. When it’s supporting enterprise communication channels and the exchange of ideas. When it’s responsible for unifying communications, transmitting security video, ensuring mobility … and, ultimately, driving all data, network and employee connectivity.
And when we’re talking about cabling related to information technology solutions, we’re never talking about just one cable. A variety of cables and wires – oftentimes hundreds or thousands of them – serve as network infrastructure veins, and they are tasked with an important job. While few will notice cabling’s job well done, people will, unfortunately, notice when cabling fails, or when cables and wires are physically in the way, hindering workspace efficiency or worker productivity or safety. Therefore, it’s vital that cabling be installed by an expert technician.
Like everything we do at Encore Technology Group, we take cabling seriously. We understand the important role cables and wires play in network connectivity, and we are pleased to provide expert cabling installation and support for all your cabling and connectivity needs. We have vast experience with the installation of many different types of cabling, including CAT-5, CAT-6 and Ethernet as well as fiber, copper, millimeter microwave, wireless bridging, and other types of cables and wires. We are committed to designing, developing and deploying reliable structured cabling solutions that support your infrastructure’s data, video and telephony connectivity.
Structured cabling is the science of knowing which cable to use for which purpose. It’s the science of laying cable using a very methodical approach and a purpose-driven distribution strategy. It’s the science of conforming to industry standards, rigid testing protocols and high attention to detail. It’s the science of generating detailed cabling documentation. But structured cabling is also the art of hiding cables and wires, putting them out of the way of end users while making them accessible to IT teams. It’s the art of color-coding cables for manageability. It’s the art of creating blueprints and drawings that can be found in the cabling documentation provided to customers. It is essentially both the science and the art of cable design and installation.
A lot of people do cabling, but not all of them do it correctly. We take great pride in our cabling certifications, expertise and references, all of which speak to our ability to do cabling the right way – both scientifically and artistically. We continually invest in education and industry certifications to ensure that our cabling technicians have the latest knowledge of industry best practices and cabling standards. For example, BICSI RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designer) is one certification held by multiple team members at Encore Technology Group. Those awarded the RCDD designation have demonstrated their knowledge in the design, implementation and integration of IT systems and related infrastructure, including cabling fluency. Many of our team members are also active in the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and participate in continuing education and certification programs.
Encore Technology Group helps educational institutions, government agencies and commercial enterprises access and manage data, engage stakeholders and measure results. Interested in learning more about structured cabling? Please contact us to schedule a consultation.
