Structured Cabling

“The installation work has always been of the highest standard. Also, the consultancy, survey and design work you have undertaken has proven invaluable, not to mention the lightning fast turn-around you have been able to effect for emergency repairs.”

Tim Silver, Network & Telecommunications Manager, RHUL

Networks and connectivity

In a new era of “systems integration” the backbone for advancing technologies are the cabled and wireless networks that allow information to flow. Our team can design and install these vital networks to the highest standards.

Relevant technologies

IT networks

IT networks

Enable the rapid and secure transmission of large amounts of scientific and computer modelled data. IT networks require the installation of structured networks incorporating fibre, copper and Wi-Fi network technologies.

Fibre optic networks

Fibre optic networks

Optical fibres have a number of advantages over copper networks: they are small in size, possess high bandwidth, a strong resistance to electromagnetic interference, and transmit over long distances. However, optical fibres require expert installation since they are expensive, fragile, and difficult to splice.

Copper networks

Copper networks

Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7 are copper-core cables (also known as ethernet cables) which are still the standard for data transmission through computer networks.

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi wavebands suffer from relatively high absorption and common obstructions such as thick walls will greatly reduce their range. Careful system design is therefore required in to minimise interference and maximise connectivity and download speeds.

Data Cabinets

Data cabinets

This is a physical steel and electronic framework that is designed to house servers, networking devices, cables and other data centre computing equipment in one place. All Darke & Taylor-fitted cables terminate in patch panels inside a data cabinet.
