Fibre Optics

Practical Networking is able to offer Fibre Optic services as required. Whether linking existing buildings on campus, a new trunk main or simply a link between floors.  

Fibre Optic cabling generally forms the backbone of any large data and structured cabling network. It is used for carrying a large volume of data over great distances without the limitations of copper (around 80m to 90m). Fibre optic cabling is also very secure and has exceptional longevity.

Practical Networking can offer Fibre Optic cable runs to any length through existing containment and routes or as part of a new build and new route. We have experience linking communication cabinets across large campus sites including schools, offices and public buildings.

As part of our offering we are able to supply and install a range of pre-terminated fibre optic cable, fibre optic patch leads, fibre optic pigtails, fibre optic cable, wall boxes, patch panels, enclosures, media converters, connectors, adaptors, attenuators, fibre containment, external fibre optic enclosures, cable management and testing and measurement.

Practical Networking are able to provide a full suite of services to facilitate a high speed functional campus network. This includes external cabling up to and including trenching.

With our partners we are able to offer Fibre Optic links between buildings to ensure the backbone of your network is running to its full potential.
Network Appraisal and Network Cabinets

Practical Networking have been to many sites where the Network Cabinet is unusable, data speeds are slow and the cabling is damaged or out of date.

We offer a consultancy service whereby we visit your site and engage as little or as much as required to assess current network performance and offer levels of step change improvement depending on the desired results and budget.

The level of assessment can be as detailed as a full Fluke Test or a visual inspection to identify the likely age and potential data speeds of your existing network.

Over time the Communications Room can become a hinderance on the usability and flexibility of the Network. We aim to make sure this isn’t a terminal problem.
