Data & Voice Structured Cabling

Although the physical layout of a network will to some extent be determined by its size and the type of networking technology chosen, the cabling system is a critical element of any network. It is generally accepted that a significant number of network failures are caused primarily by cable-related problems. Getting the cabling system right, therefore, is essential for an effective data communications system.

The standards define how to design, build, and manage a cabling system that is structured, meaning that the system consists of a number of discrete sub-systems or blocks, each of which has specific performance characteristics. The blocks are organised hierarchically within a unified communication system. A workgroup LAN block, for example, has lower-performance requirements than a network backbone block, which usually requires high-performance fibre-optic cable. The standards have evolved to support high-speed networking technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet, and advanced cable types such as Category 6 and Category 7 twisted pair cable.

Structured cabling or premise wiring defines a generic telecommunication wiring system for commercial buildings, and comprises the cabling, connectors and accessories used to connect local area network and telephone system equipment within a building. It breaks cabling systems down into two main elements, horizontal wiring and vertical (or backbone) wiring. Structured cabling standards define the media, topology, termination and connection points, and administrative practice to be used.


BIMA Technologies specializes in the installation of 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.

The Cable installation often gets far less importance than it really deserves. However, the fact is you can only achieve optimum performance of all your networking and Phone system through some good planning, robust designing, professional installation and proper maintenance of your cabling systems. 

Therefore, whether you need a new structured cabling installation or cable removal service for your networks cabling upgrade, you can rely on BIMA Technologies to provide you the best-structured wiring services at the most affordable prices.

BIMA Technologies caters to all cabling and networking needs of large / small, commercial and industrial clients, offering a whole range of data / voice wiring products and networks including design, installation, and maintenance services.

BIMA Technologies inc. generally uses CAT 6 cable in installations unless otherwise specified by the customer. CAT 6 and 6E represent the best alternative to 'future proof' you Structured Cabling Copper based systems and will generally handle any Network Requirements that a user is likely to have. 

At BIMA Technologies, we believe that all great things start with  a solid foundation. This is why our high-quality comprehensive cable infrastructure capabilities are so essential to the products and services we offer. R32;While cabling for your technology needs may not seem too glamorous at first thought, almost every piece of technology in your business or home depends on it.

Consider all of the technology purchases that reside in your business or home. The database applications or phone system that is so integral to your business.  Or what about the HD TV and 7.1 surround sound system you love so much. Even your lighting, HVAC and security system depend on proper cabling.  All of the technology and electronics in your business and home can (and should) be integrated over the same cabling infrastructure.

Faulty cabling can cause some of the best systems in the world to perform inadequately or even fail! R32;A quality cable infrastructure provides the foundation for the inevitable technology expansion and additions for your business or home. Many current cabling infrastructures in buildings and homes cannot support current technology demands. In order to utilize the incredible technology that is becoming increasingly available, a solid cable implementation is essential for proper operation and protection of your investments.

Copper Cable

TIA/EIA-568-C define structured cabling standards that will enable the design and implementation of structured cabling systems for commercial buildings, and between buildings in campus environments.

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.

Cat-5- Category 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. 

Category 6 cable, commonly referred to as Cat 6, is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. Cat-6 features more stringent specifications for crosstalk and system noise. The cable standard provides performance of up to 250 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet). It is expected to suit the 10GBASE-T (10Gigabit Ethernet) standard, although with limitations on length if unshielded Cat 6 cable is used.

T568A and T568B termination

Perhaps the widest known and most discussed feature of TIA/EIA-568-B.1-2001 is the definition of pin/pair assignments for eight-conductor 100-ohm balanced twisted-pair cabling, such as Category 3, Category 5 and Category 6 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables. These assignments are named T568A and T568B and they define the pinout, or order of connections, for wires in 8P8C (often incorrectly referred to as RJ45) eight-pin modular connector plugs and sockets.

TIA/EIA-568-B specifies that horizontal cables should be terminated using the T568A pin/pair assignments, or "optionally, per [T568B] if necessary to accommodate certain 8-pin cabling systems". Despite this instruction, many organizations continue to implement T568B for various reasons, chiefly associated with tradition (T568B is equivalent to AT&T 258A).

The primary color of pair one is blue, pair two is orange, pair three is green and pair four is brown. Each pair consists of one conductor of solid color, and a second conductor which is white with a stripe of the same color. The specific assignments of pairs to connector pins varies between the T568A and T568B standards.
