Network Cabling For Hospital and Medical Facilities

Network cables are used to connect and transfer data and information between computers, routers, switches and storage area networks . These cables are essentially the carrier or media through which data flows. Hospitals need fast access to data, lives are on the line.

There are different types of communications cables, and the appropriate type to use will depend on the structure and topology of the overall architecture of the system. The most commonly used types of communications cables are dominated by what is referred to as “twisted pair cable”. In local area networks; typically office environments, retail and commercial sites, copper communications cabling, i.e.,twisted pair cable is by far the most commonly used type of cable.

Fiber optic cabling is specified where high bandwidths may be needed; especially in the data center environment and where an installation demands high capacity, typically a hospital, airports, banks….However, Fiber optic cabling is fast becoming the medium of choice for any installation that is sending high volumes of data!

Laying cables is the foundation for both creating local area networks (LANs) and connecting LANs into wide area networks (WANs). Network administrators are usually involved only in the planning and laying of LAN cabling since WAN cabling is the responsibility of telecommunications carriers.

You can trust Northeast Remote Surveillance & Alarm to select the right kind of cabling at the beginning of installation can save considerable expense when networking equipment is later upgraded for higher transmission speeds.
