Cat 6 Ethernet Cabling

We have been designing, installing wiring  Cat6  IT cable systems into Offices, Schools, Commercial & industrial environments.

We provide high quality installations using tried and trusted components. Our team of designers and engineers are time served and highly experienced, and this ensures a high quality product every time. 

We install these cable systems in the following areas:  Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, West london, West Sussex, Dorset. 

Detailed Cat 6 cable info:  Category 6 or more commonly called Cat6 cable, is the evolution of cat5e cabling to a higher bandwidth of 250Mhz and more stringent paramaters for testing perfomance.

This cabling system supports all of the IT Ethernet Network protocols  that Category 5e does,  it can also be used for 10Gigabit Ethenet over a reduced distance of around 50m - many manufacturers wont officially support this protocol in their warranties for category 6 solutions. 

Category 6 systems are used to ensure Gigabit Ethernet runs to it's absloute best or to provide some future proofing for a 10 Gigabit ethernet solution.

Category 6 just like cat5e has loads of uses and is backwards compatable with Category 5e,  when using category 6 at it's limits its our recommendation that the manufacturer matched leads are used to ensure best performance. 

For total future proofing of your cabling look to install a Category 6A solution


Tips for patch leads - we always recommend installing an unique wraparound label on the patch leads for larger installations to aid with tracing out leads where dense patching is present,  start at 001 and well who knows where it will end up.

Patch panels - traditionally patch panels started at the top and worked down - more modern designs incorporate banks of patch panels intersperced with active equipment - this design makes the patch leads a more similar length and distributes patching across the rack  face more evenly .

Use deeper patch management bars of 100mm for Cat 6 to make up for the fatter cables - helps preserve performance and make life easier.
