Today’s cable installations include fiber optic conduits. Low Voltage Cabling Contractors assist their commercial and industrial, as well as, institutional clients with design work as well. Apart from doing the necessary installations, they will also be looking into the implementation of structured wire cabling systems. These cabling systems would include patch panels, data racks, as well as business telephone systems’ standard or advanced requirements. And clients will be reminded of the importance of wire management no doubt. Not anyone can and is even allowed to do cabling installations in your state.
It will be a requirement that your low voltage cabling contractor be a licensed and recognized service provider. Companies should be state licensed and insured. One good example comes out of the State of Florida where a Low Voltage Specialty Electrical Contractor license number is being issued. Also, there should be an effort to either meet or exceed the industrial standards set by ANSI, EIA and TIA, as well as other national electrical codes.
Qualified cabling technicians are also able to test, label and certify existing and newly installed cable systems. Commercial and industrial customers should be provided with their complete documentation after the maintenance and/or installation work has been completed. This will include floor plans that carry cable pathways, patch panel records and, of course, test results. It is generally a good idea for clients to be fully involved in the maintenance and/or installation work. The assigned sales technician should be better placed to assist them with their current and future networking requirements, over and above their usual cabling and wiring requirements.
The qualified consultant and technician is also able to advise the client on the latest structured cabling techniques being used. Needless to say, all work needs to remain cost-effective and guaranteed in favor of the client.
