The backbone of all
communications is built upon cable systems that snake through buildings,
data centers, and communications networks. CTI Telecom partners with its
customers to complement its business voice and data communications with
structured cable systems. The result? An end-to-end communications infrastructure
CTI Telecom specializes
in the installation of turnkey structured cabling (Cat-3, Cat-5, and Fiber).
We emphasize modular designs that strictly adhere to the various standards
and specifications governing the data and voice cabling industry including
BICSI, IEEE, EIA/TIA, ANSI, UL, ETL and the FCC.
Our technicians are
fully licensed and certified. We adhere to a strict quality assurance
program. With unsurpassed warranty service and support, CTI Telecom offers
both pass-through manufacturer warranties and CTI Telecom's own installation
warranty. Whether it's installing a few cables or cabling entire buildings,
CTI Telecom adheres to strict standards.
CTI offers the following
types of structured cable systems:
Cat-3 - Category 3 cable is used in analog telephone, 10 base-T,
and T1 (conditioned lines) applications. The cable contains twisted pair
wire of 22 to 24 AWG and comes UTP (unshielded twisted pair) or STP (shielded
twisted pair). The cable is used for digital or data-transport applications
with speed of up to 16 MHz at 300 feet.
5 cable is used in 10 base-T, 100 base-T, token ring, switched token ring,
ATM and T1 applications. The cable contains twisted pair wire of 22 to
24 AWG and comes UTP or STP. Each pair in a cable sheath has a different
number of twists per foot. The cable is used for digital or data-transport
applications with speed of up to 100 MHz at 300 feet.
Cat-5e - Category
5e cable is used in 10 base-T, 100 base-T, 1000 base-T, token ring, switched
token ring, ATM and T1 applications. The cable contains twisted pair wire
of 22 to 24 AWG and comes UTP or STP. Each pair in a cable sheath has
a higher number of twists per foot than Cat-5 cable. The cable is used
for digital or data-transport applications with speed of up to 350 MHz
at 300 feet.
Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cables are made up of tiny layers of glass having different
refractive properties. Light via LED or Laser (depending on the type of
cable used) travels through the glass core of a fiber optic cable to a
receiving device where it is converted to an electrical signal or amplified
and retransmitted. Fiber optic cables are available in two modes: Single-mode
Single mode fiber
has a small core and is used for transmitting data over long distances
using Laser electronics.
Multi-mode has a larger
core and is used for transmitting data over short distances using less
expensive LED electronics.
When building network infrastructure, the physical cable is just one component
in the overall structured cable deployment. CTI has built-out large data
centers, computer labs and sophisticated network cross connect facilities
to accommodate our customers various needs. We install equipment racks,
cross connect panels, wall jacks, cable support systems, and other cabling
components as part of our cabling services. Whatever the cabling product
needs, we have the experience to deliver a complete solution.
CTI's network equipment offerings include routers, hubs, and switches
used to manage network traffic. Our turn-key approach offers customers
integrated Ethernet solutions that consist of market leading LAN and WAN
Hubs are Ethernet devices used to broadcast data over a number of network
drops. In most applications, Hubs are inserted into the network to enable
a star-wiring configuration. Although ubiquitous and inexpensive, Hubs
are limited in application due to packet collisions as a network expands.
10/100/1000 Ethernet switches (called switching hubs or concentrators)
are LAN elements that link computers to a network with a specific data
throughput regardless of the number of users on the network. Ethernet
switches limit data packet collisions and efficiently support network
Routing switches, or routers, are network devices that move network traffic
to destinations based on the address portion of a data packet. Routers
are used to optimize the performance of a network infrastructure and are
key to the deployment of next generation convergent networks.
Multi-service switches are used to consolidate voice/video/data circuits
through voice compression and dynamic bandwidth allocation.
CTI offers a variety
of scalable network devices from industry leading vendors.
