Things to Keep in Mind while  Installing Network Cables  As an electrician you might have studied about installing network cables.                       Sometimes the installation might seem easy looking at the instruction                     guide. However it gets difficult when it comes to the real procedure. If you                             fail to install the network cables properly it is sure to bring up several                             problems later which will ask you to spend a lot of finances and time.    Several IT professionals have confessed time and again that there aren’t                       many major mistakes that lead to the issues occurring in the network. A                           few important mistakes are enough. To keep these network issues at bay                         there are certain things you must keep in mind before you go about making                             installations.  Take a look at some of them given below:  Plan Well In Advance  Before you start installing ​Network Cables​ it is important to have a chart or                             drawing of how you want to lay them out in the network. You can also                               assess your current network requirements find out how the previous                     1

network installation worked and if there was any. When you plan the                         installation of cables ahead of time it saves a lot of your time and boosts                               your productivity. So ensure that you have a plan in place.  Keep The Rules In Mind  There are several laws codes and standards at local state Federal level.                         Ignoring these laws can prove to be disastrous not just legally but also                           morally. You would definitely not want mishaps and accidents at the places                         where you have made installations and end up paying hefty fines. So make                           sure that you have ample amount of knowledge about the standards that                         are applicable to your company and you are good to go.  Conduct Environmental Check  Is a lot of heat expected to be around where your wires are If the answer                                 to this question is yes it could heat up your cables and cause network                             failure. Not just that it would also compromise the safety of workers and                           network installers. Hence in case if your wires are likely to heat up ensure                             that you have a system in place that keeps your cables dry and cool. Install                               cooling systems and air conditioners if the need be.  Consider Distance Limitations  100 meters is an ideal limit when it comes to cable length. You should also                               consider that every cable has its own limit and distance includes path                         leads. If you know about the cabling you are going to use for your network                               2

it would prove to be useful. Read more about the cables speak with the                             concerned authorities and your work is sure to get easier  Segregate Data Voice Cables  Some years ago voice and data had different set-ups. However as the end                           users had different needs it didn’t remain a viable option. The best thing to                             do in such cases would be to use a twisted pair of cables. Get in touch with                                   a system designer and they would plan a telecommunication infrastructure                     that can work with two voice ports phone and fax and two data ports like                               video and ethernet. ‘Search for ​ethernet cable near me​’ and you would be                           able to find CAT5 systems that can take care of your need.  Keep Interfering Devices At Bay  Electromagnetic and magnetic Interference plays a major role in messing                     up your cabling set up. Even the most negligible things like fluorescent                         lighting and motors can cause it. So make sure that the cable pathway of                             your network is void of these interferences and hazards. Even if you run a                             cable parallel to electric cables it can create data transmission                     interference from one point to the other. The best way to prevent this is to                               cross them perpendicularly. You also need to take care that there are no                           hindrances as such even at a later stage.  Manage Your Cables Well  Testing your network cables is necessary. But that is not it. You will not get                               a good quality network performance if you do not manage your cables well.                           Label your cables organize them and use racks so that you can identify                           3

and segregate and access them easily. Although organizing cables might                     take up your time in the beginning it will save a lot of your time at a later                                     stage.  Test Your Network  You might be very happy with the layout of your cables once you have                             installed them. However it is not enough. You must test your network and                           find out about the issues you might have overlooked before you activate it.                           If there are any safety and data transmission issues ensure that you make                           use of the right tools to take care of them.  Take Help From Professionals  There are times when you might get confused and wouldn’t know how to                           resolve the issues related to a network cable. This is when you would need                             an expert to supervise your work. You can get in touch with a professional                             and they would help you to set up your network in an efficient and safe                               manner.  Are you looking for ethernet and network cables in the USA Search for                           ‘ethernet cable near me’ and you will surely come across ​SF Cable’s                         website​.
