SMART IT provides a complete turnkey Structured Cabling solution using technicians and engineers who are not only fully qualified to work with the latest Copper and Fibre Optic Data and Voice Cabling Systems (such as Category 5e, Category 6 and 7a.1308 voice and Single and Multimode Fibre Optic) – but who also have the expertise and experience to manage the entire process from the initial strategy through the design process to complete implementation and testing.
Cat 5e : This ‘enhanced’ version of Cat 5 supports 10 gigabit speeds and with bandwidth up to 200MHz and less interference than its predecessor. As the lowest category cable for gigabit Ethernet, it’s a cost-effective solution for applications such as media streaming that need to transmit large datasets.
Cat 6: With a higher signal-to-noise ratio than Cat 5e and bandwidth up to 250MHz Cat 6 is called for where there are multiple and simultaneous network demands, including large data transfers and video conferencing.
Cat 7: Double shielded for maximum interference protection, Cat 7 is considerably more costly but with 600MHz bandwidth it is now the accepted standard for ultra-fast Ethernet and an effective way to future-proof your network.
