Akita has been designing and installing cabling networks since 1996. This experience counts for a great deal when it comes to getting your data cabling project right.
Data cabling is one of the most important parts of any IT setup and the area that can make or break a network. It is also often the hardest part of an IT setup to change should an organisation outgrow its cabling or should cabling prove unfit for purpose.
Data cabling projects, therefore, need to be planned and implemented carefully, not only to achieve success but to ensure flexibility for future growth. This is where you can benefit from Akita’s skills and expertise.
Structured data cabling
Structured data cabling is the wiring system used to transmit data, video and voice information from office-to-office or within a building. It’s key for the following reasons:
- 100% of company data travels across cables at some stage.
- Around three-quarters of network faults are caused by cables, mostly due to incorrect installation.
- The cable network is a small percentage of IT cost but plays a critical role. Under-investment can lead to poor IT performance (e.g. slow data transfer and other network failures).
- A standardised structured cabling system can reduce the overall cost of the network infrastructure.
- Data cabling is a contributing factor to the value of a business space. A location with no or poorly implemented cabling will prove a costly prospect to a new tenant and potentially less desirable.
Akita delivers professional structured data cabling solutions that use the best quality materials to ensure longevity. Our staff are fully trained in all aspects of cabling. They’re also qualified to complete works at high levels using equipment such as scissor lifts and cherry pickers.
Our structured data cabling is designed to give your organisation the best connectivity and functionality, both now and in the future.
And though we’ve never had cause to use it, we offer our cabling with a 5-year guarantee on works (subject to fair usage and conditions).
Fibre optic cabling
Fibre optic cabling allows for the transfer of data at close to the speed of light. It’s often used to transfer over longer distances, such as between buildings.
Fibre optic cable installation is a highly specialist task. Together with our partners, Akita can complete fibre cabling jobs as part of larger structured cabling projects.
