Power & Data Installation
Ensuring your critical infrastructure is connected, certified and performant.
Stephens IT provides a complete structured cabling solution, conducted by technicians and engineers who are not only fully qualified to work with the latest Copper and Fibre Optic Data and Voice Cabling Systems, but who also have the expertise to manage the entire process, from initial strategy through to complete implementation and testing.
We provide a total one-stop solution for all your local and wide-area networking needs, that includes the direct supply of all the cables and components your cabling infrastructure requires, as well as the installation and configuration of the latest technologies in active hardware components, such as switches, routers and wireless access points.
All systems and components installed are fully tested to confirm that they meet or exceed all relevant standards.
We often come across electrical contractors who may not have a full understanding of networking requirements and the effects that different cabling can have on the technology deployed. A simple example is the impact different ethernet cabling can have on the maximum network speeds available to the technology:
If you wanted to run a 10Gbps internal network speed for example, you would need to ensure a minimum of Cat6a cabling is deployed end-to-end.
Future proofing your structured cabling is essential. Often the cabling is installed at the fit-out or construction stage, so ensuring there is cohesion between your electrical contractor and technology provider is critical to project success. An inferior cabling system can cause up to 70 per cent of network downtime even though it usually represents only 5 per cent of an initial network investment.
