Cabling

The quality of any communication system is only as good as its weakest link. If that weak link is your cabling system, communications with employees, customers and prospects can be interrupted. The quality and capacity of your cable plant become even more critical as your need to “transfer information” advances.

Transferring communications at 100 Mbps and faster requires flawless cable operations. If installed improperly, Category 5 and fiber-optic cable can be a potential weak link in your communications plan. For example, proximity to electro-magnetic interference (EMI) must be avoided. Our certified engineers design your cabling system to stringent industry standards (Electronics Industry Association and Telecommunications Industry Association). After the installation, our technicians test and document your cables to ensure proper performance and bandwidth required for today’s equipment and future growth.

Nextcom Cabling Services helps you achieve superior performance. Once we evaluate your specific needs, we will design a cabling plan, installs each component, and provides continuous support.

Nextcom provides the professional answer for your engineering and installation of voice, data, and fiber cabling networks. Our certified technical engineers ensure guidelines for ANSI/TIA/EIA -568 standards are composed, applied and delivered to industry specifications.

Nextcom high quality installations and manufacturer assisted design and application support allows our engineers to make sure our customers’ complex needs for voice, data, fiber cabling networks, service, adds, moves or changes are met.
