Digital technology is with us, it all plays a part in the lifestyle we enjoy.

TV’s, Blu-ray player, Apple TV, Foxtel, Playstation, Xbox, PCs, Laptop PC, intercom systems, multiroom audio home/building automation systems and much more all use the internet. This means some form of data network will need to be installed for content that is online or even software updates to come through to the device as well as some devices will need to communicate to each other to work properly.

Fibre optics

Fibre optics cable is becoming more predominant in both domestic and commercial building for allowing the step for when copper cable is unable to transmit the data speeds that will be required in the not-too-distant future. A home/building that is will be more than a single or have inaccessible voids should seriously consider installing fibre optics cabling now so as not to be at a disadvantage in the future. We are able to install, terminate and fusion splice multimode fibre optics cable.

Copper cable

Copper cable like Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a are all still commonly used cables. All these cable are still required for everyday use for everything from computers, TVs, media player like Apple TV or Foxtel Now, to gaming consoles and home/building automation systems to connect to the internet.

Cabling Rules and regulations

Not any person can legally install data cables or any sort. to install data cable the installer will need a data cabling license with the correct license accreditation. a note to home owners, an electrical contractor with only an electrical license is not a data cabling license, that electrical contractor is not legally able to install any type of data cable. ACMA can impose a fine of up to $90,000 if they find anybody doing work without a data cabling license. Also ask your contractor if they have a data cabling license as criminal offense to not be licensed, this is the only way to prove they are trained at completing the task. Using an unlicensed data cabler is like using an unlicensed electrical contractor.
