6 Questions To Ask Your Data Cabling Installer

You may not think about it much (if at all), but in your business, cabling actually plays a very important role. It is the basis on which all other business operations rely. It is very important to choose the most powerful and secure infrastructure for cabling. The wiring you choose will decide how fast your business network can be. Today, more than ever, corporations worldwide are seeking higher bandwidth speeds. When contemplating cabling for your business, there are a number of different things you can take into account. We have put together a list of questions that you may ask when selecting the most suitable cabling for your business.

1. Are they certified?

You will be shocked to know how many installers of cables are not authorized. To produce long-lasting results, you want to make sure you select qualified and accredited practitioners who are experienced. When preventing installation mistakes, an experienced cable installer would have the expertise to know exactly what sort of cabling service you need.

2. Which type of cabling is best for my business?

Believe it or not, there are no two similar cabling schemes. To ensure the efficient transmission of data, there are several different factors that play a role. Cat 5e to Cat 6+, Multimode/Single-mode Cable, Copper and Fiber Feeders/Backbone and many more are some of the standardized cabling facilities. You will be directed in the correct direction by an experienced installer. Some of the variables that decide the correct cabling for your business include:

  • The location and size of your building
  • The needs of the network
  • Your network environment
  • Budget
  • Future Bandwidth Requirements

3. What have you done for other companies?

Inquire for references. The names of their clients and brief case studies should be readily supplied by a reliable low-voltage cabling installer. To find out the degree of satisfaction both at the time of the installation and in the follow-up service, search for businesses with needs similar to yours and follow up with those references.

4. After the installation is complete, what service can I expect?

Whenever and wherever you need it, make sure that your low-voltage cabling installers have on-site assistance. If relocation, fixes, updates and/or hardware adjustments are required after the initial installation, working with the same cabling installer will make a stressful situation much simpler and quicker due to their inside knowledge of your system.

Satisfaction after the installation is important in the service of your equipment and system. Ask your installer if after the cabling is installed, the business stands behind their job.

5. Who’s going to be my contact?

Since low-voltage cabling is such an important part of the overall efficiency of your data transfer and your company, consider an expert project manager to help you define your project needs and scope, create a project plan, serve multiple locations, budget, deploy resources, and provide status reports to ensure that your project is completed to your satisfaction and within the service.

6. What about my future needs?

Change comes easily. Your low-voltage cabling system should be expandable, but not with unneeded components and services added. Make sure installers use readily available standardized components and ask if your installation will adjust as your needs change in the future.
