Network & Structured Cabling/Wiring
Running the correct wire is crucial. The old wire, which is still being run in many homes being built, does not have enough bandwidth to support today’s technologies. New high-speed Cat 6 telephone wire can transmit information at 100Mbps. Cat 6:
- Allows information from the Internet to be downloaded faster
- Allows for more efficient and faster communication between networked computers
- Minimizes cross-talk and other interference
For video signal, RG6 quad shielded coaxial cable has the bandwidth you need for satellite, high-definition television and clearer cable signals.
All of the wire should be “home run” to a central hub. Today, there are several options for advanced power centers, which provide the communication, monitoring and control capabilities that allow interaction with your security system, television, water heaters and personal computers.
