Data transfer is at an all-time high with the evolution of technology and business. Coupled with the development and growth of VoIP and cloud-based telephone systems, fast and reliable broadband and Wi-Fi are now essential in many businesses.

In the era of rapid technological advancements and increasing business demands, the significance of high-speed network cabling such as CAT5, CAT6 or CAT7 cannot be overstated. Traditional copper cabling is no longer sufficient to handle the escalating data speeds.

CAT5 and CAT6 network cabling, known for their versatility, is not limited to the Internet, Wi-Fi, or PC Data networks. It is increasingly used for telephone systems and office phone systems, aligning with the growing trend towards VoIP and cloud-based phone systems.

All cabling design, installation & testing are carried out by our highly trained & experienced telephony technicians; with over 25+ years of experience within the industry, we’re confident you won’t find a better service.

We’re also proud to be Home Office-approved data cabling installers.

1308 Cabling Installations

1308 sandard telephone cabling is the type of cabling that is usually installed in older buildings or in residential homes. It is still used in situations where the telephone system is not installed alongside data cabling or the system is not suitable to be installed using data cabling systems.

P A Communications can install a standard 1308 cabling system for your telephone system and / or telephone lines using high quality telecommunications cable.

1308 telephone cables are suitable for outdoor and indoor installations where an armoured cable is not necessary.

They offer a lightweight, compact, tough solution for cables that need to endure a variety of weather conditions, from rain or snow to bright sunlight. The 1308 cable is ideal for clipping around the outside of a building or running through ducting or internal. The outer sheath is made from tough, durable polyethylene which is UV and sunlight resistant.

CAT 5E Network Cabling

P A Communications are specialists in the design, installation, testing, certification and repair of all types of data cabling. Cat5 cabling, otherwise know as data cabling, voice cabling and structured cabling, is suitable for computer data, telephony, audio and visual communications.

A small investment in a cabling upgrade is likely to reap a big return on investment terms of speed and resulting efficiency. As part of our complete service and for your convenience, P A Communications can work in partnership with your IT system installation and support companies.

Our fully guaranteed, high quality Cat5e copper cabling is reliable, safe and offers the high capacity data transfer a network depends on for efficient performance. P A Communications are approved installers of HellermannTyton, Excel and Draka Data Products, all of which carry a minimum of 15 year product warranty.

Category 5e can drastically reduce the installation costs of your IT and communications systems as both can use the same cabling system, it can also reduce long-term costs as relocating phones, computer terminals and peripherals can be carried out by the end user, this cuts down on service costs and helps your company and ours stay green.

P A Communications are home office-approved data cabling installers.

CAT 6 Cabling Installations

Category 6 data cabling is not unlike Category 5e, but the cable itself has some extra features that Category 5e does not include. These features include shielding and higher-quality copper cores, which means that the overall speed of Category 6 cabling is higher than that of Category 5e.

Most companies are happy to use Cat5e, and it is still the standard in most cases. Where Category 6 comes into its own is in high-bandwidth environments such as video conferencing, high-speed Mac networks, and noisy industrial applications due to its extra shielding.

P A Communications is fully qualified to install, test, certify and maintain category 6 networks and peripherals.

What is Cat6?

A Cat6 cabling system is higher performance than Cat5 (500MHz v 250MHz) and designed to support 10GBase-T over the full 100 metre, 4 connector channel. Cat6 uses 4-pair twisted cables and will typically use RJ45 connectors. It is backwards compatible with Cat5 and Cat5e. TIA Cat6 and the corresponding ISO/IEC Class EA standards were ratified in 2008.

What is 10GBase-T?

10GBase-T is the new IEEE Ethernet standard for running 10 Gigabit (10GBits/sec) over a suitable twisted pair copper cable of up to 100 meters. It is ten times faster than 1000Base-T and one hundred times faster than 100Base-T (Fast Ethernet).

James Lawson Network Manager

"We had two different systems in the past from our previous telephone supplier but they would not work together. We were in a bit of a mess as they were unfit for purpose so we knew we had to immediately change that. We contacted PA Communications, having dealt with them in the past, and I knew they delivered excellent customer service. PA are extremely helpful and supportive all hours of the day and night."
