Data cabling services

Cabling of data and voice systems is often ignored by many companies until the last minute just before relocation or new building takes place. Cabling is the backbone of any computer network; it ties all the components of the network together therefore it should receive as much careful consideration as any other network component.

Different type of cables used for network installation is:

  • Coaxial cabling is the primary type of cabling used by the cable television industry and is also widely used for computer networks, such as Ethernet. It is more expensive than standard telephone wire; it is much less susceptible to interference and can carry much more data than a telephone wire.
  • Twisted pair cable is created for high signal integrity. Some are unshielded while others are shielded. It is used in structured cabling for computer networks, token ring, basic voice services, and ATM.
  • Optical Fiber: It is further categorized into:

      • Single-mode optical fiber is an optical fiber in which only the lowest order bound mode can propagate at the wavelength of interest typically 1300 to 1320nm.
      • Multimode optical fiber is made of glass fibers, with common diameters in the 50-to-100 micron range for the light carry.

Data Encryption

Encryption is a method of compressing data files into a format inaccessible to unauthorized people. Technology used in encryption activities was once used exclusively by top-secret military and government operations. Now, even ordinary people can use encryption software to ward off a different kind of spy—hackers that steal identities and spread viruses.

Choosing the right kind of encryption system and software largely depends on the level of security you need. If you are person e-mailing highly classified files, you may need to use a more sophisticated encryption method than the ordinary guy down at the local Internet café sharing mp3s or pictures through peer-to-peer sharing. More stringent security encryption is used by large corporations and government agencies that deal with sensitive and top secret information. Their encryption systems are based on highly advanced algorithms and multiple combinations of passwords and pass keys.

A symmetric-key encryption system uses a secret key or code to encode the data. When the data is to be passed from the client's computer, it is first encoded with the public key and then sent to the secured computer. The secured computer then uses the private key along with the public key to decode the data.
