STOUT COMMUNICATIONS prides itself on compliance with all ANSI/EIA/TIA
We will always install a fully compliant system in our new installations.
We test, certify and warrant
every new cable run that we install for you. Our test equipment is
calibrated to the latest standards to
insure a fully compliant system.
Compliant Products Alone
DO NOT Guarantee
a Compliant System
With so much emphasis on compliant components, many forget that
systems will not comply or perform
to the desired category rating unless proper installation practices
are followed. ANSI/EIA/TIA-568-B warns, “It should
be noted that meeting requirements for connector categories 5,
5e and 6 is not sufficient in itself to
ensure required system performance.” Proper installation
and connector termination are critical to a network’s overall
performance and compliance. The ANSI/EIA/TIA-568-B telecommunications
standard for infrastructure
cabling reflects prevailing practices by a majority of the telecommunications
industry. For further information and
to purchase standards documentation, please see http://www.tiaonline.org/standards/overview.cfm
Category 6 cabling is the latest addition to the structured cabling
standards and has twice the
bandwidth of Category 5e cabling, up to 200MHz. This improved bandwidth,
together with vastly improved
immunity from external noise, provides the potential for category
6 to support multi-gigabit applications.
The Category 6 Standard document contains end-to-end cabling specifications,
field tester requirements and measurement procedures, together
with accuracy and reproducibility guidelines
that ensure a reliable cabling system.
STOUT COMMUNICATIONS has technicians who are trained by the manufacturer
and certified to install their
cabling products. We are currently certified by Leviton Voice & Data
Division for their products. We have a BICSI
Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) and BICSI-Certified
Cabling Technicians on our staff.
If you are having problems with your network running “slow” or “it’s
not as fast as it used to be”, please call us and
we will be happy to assist you.
