Do I need an electrician to install network cable?

The Electricians at OIT Ltd offer network cabling Buckinghamshire because they have substantial electrical engineering competence that transfers into adjacent industries. Many electrical service firms are increasingly supplying network infrastructure cabling as part of the services they supply to businesses.

However, there are no “related field” designations for electricians and network cable technicians. In reality, all other occupations that are more effectively recognised by other categorisation standards are excluded from the activity of electricians. So in short, no you do not need to be an electrician to install a network cable but you do need to know how cabling works and being an electrician helps a lot.

However, your ISP is the first place to call for most internet-related issues, but not with network cabling. Some internet service providers do fibre optic installation when you start as a new customer but what happens after that?

To begin installing your own cabling for a network, you need to cut walls and drill holes in flooring, and managing wiring is particularly difficult.  A skilled installer, such as OIT, will be able to cut extra cabling, strip network cables using a wire stripper, thread the exposed wires and tidily install your network with skilled precision.

How does network optic cable installation work?

In short, optic cable installation is needed as it goes hand in hand with computers, routers, switches, and data storage networks in allowing them to communicate with each other. These cables serve as the carrier or medium for data transmission.

There are several types of communications cables, and the best one to employ depends on the overall design of the system’s structure and topology. “Twisted pair cable” is the most prevalent form of communications cable. Copper communications cabling, i.e., twisted pair cable, is by far the most often utilised form of cable in local area networks; generally office settings, retail, and commercial venues.

A twisted pair cable is very commin in ethernet networks. Comprising of four pairs of thin wires or conductors, these ‘wires’ or conductors, are contained inside of the insulation or outer sheath of the cable.

Fibre optic cabling is used when large bandwidths are required, such as in data centres and installations requiring high capacity, such as hospitals, airports, and banks. Fibre optic cable, on the other hand, is quickly becoming the preferred medium for any system that sends large amounts of data.

Of course, there are other types of cables, such as coaxial cable and multi-pair cable, as well as other media, such as wireless, or wifi.
