What do network cabling services include?
To support the demands of today's communication systems - a well-laid network and structural cabling system is critical. Data networks function as the most important building block for every type of business operation, and although network wiring is often the cheapest component of your system, it is arguably the most important. Without this critical infrastructure connecting your devices and computer equipment, your network would be useless.
Each cabling system needs to have the proper design, installation, and even routine maintenance to keep your business's systems running smoothly at all times. Without proper, professional installation of network cabling services, your data center's equipment may suffer in the long run. With inaccessible, poorly installed cables, expansion and routine maintenance can jeopardize the structural integrity of your entire operation.

Data and Voice network wiring
Installing a data and voice wired connection is one of the most important components of the overall network for your business.

Business Phone Systems and VoIP Phone Systems
A fast internet connection has more usage than just helping download speeds on your device. Did you know it can also impact your business's overall productivity when it comes to a voice over (VoIP) internet phone system? Cut your telecommunications time in half with a telephone system that has an internet connection via a solid and well-installed network that holds more than just your company's data.
Our consultants at Kansas City Managed IT have solutions for your business and VoIP phone system needs. Whether you're just starting off with a small business or need a large system with multiple connections across long distances, there are network solutions for any need.
First and foremost, our consultants will check the location, power, speeds, wiring, and cabling of your existing data network box. From there, they will assess the need for building out any new wiring, make sure the cabling is all connected properly and will recommend any fixes for your existing network. From there, they will address a need for any individual outlets, the location of these outlets, and what structured cabling you might need at your business moving forward. They will evaluate your cable internet and will determine where each device needs to be placed to receive the best internet connection.
Our professionals will work with your business from start to finish to make sure that every cable, plug, and all wiring is properly done to ensure fast speeds and maximum power for your VoIP needs.
While there are many VoIP providers on the market, it is important to choose wisely for the best quality wiring and cabling. A reliable provider should offer helpful information, a long-term solution, and even a backup plan in the event that your business loses internet connection.
Fiber Optic Cables and Fiber Optic Internet
In a fast-paced, digital forward world, advancements in cabling happen rapidly. Though relatively new, fiber optic cables have become the gold standard over the traditional cable internet connection. Fiber optic cables rely on light to transmit signals rather than electricity, thus increasing internet speeds and allowing for higher bandwidth. Additionally, fiber optic cables tout the ability to maintain high internet speeds even in peak usage times. So where does fiber internet stack up against traditional copper or coaxial cables?
For businesses, fiber optic technology is the best choice. Fiber optic is also a reliable option for a home wi fi network, especially if you are working from home, with fiber optic internet allowing for unmatched productivity capabilities. Fiber internet is also becoming more widely available for usage in multiple settings including home and business.
Advantages of fiber optic technology include:
- More reliability in comparison to cable internet
- Fiber optic transmission is faster
- More bandwidth
- Noticeably faster download speeds with fiber internet in comparison to cable internet
- Enhanced cybersecurity
- Easier identification of compromised cables
- Fiber optic cable transmission can cover greater distances
- Regular cables can experience interferences from severe weather and heat, whereas fiber optic cable does not experience electromagnetic disturbances
- Fiber optic cable strands are much smaller, requiring less space
Additionally, fiber optic cables and a fiber network terminal is essentially 'future-proof' because of their capability to handle future network speeds without needing to replace the backbone cabling.
