April 4, 2013

Communication over long distances was facilitated with the invention of the modern telephone. And, since then, with constant evolution and fast technological advancements, telecommunication has got a new dimension altogether. Nowadays, telecom companies provide data support as well, in addition to providing voice support.

Talking about the telecom industry in United Arab Emirates, Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) was the sole telecom service provider in the country. Over time, the telecom industry has grown by leaps and bounds, especially in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Telecommunication in the United Arab Emirates is controlled by Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA). Dubai telecom industry provides voice support in addition to providing support for data transfer that includes files, audio and videos.

High speed data transfer over a network can be achieved by the use of a standard cabling solution. Telecom and networking companies use various types of cables for this purpose. The Telecom companies provide networking solutions like voice connectivity and data connectivity by the use of different types of cables. Generally the types of cables used are Category 5E (Cat-5e), Category 6 (Cat-6), fibre optic cables and modular connectors. Ideally, the eight conductors of the Category 5, Category 5E and Category 6 should be connected as per the demands of the cabling standards. The layout of these cables is governed by a set of standards that specify the cabling topology to be followed in order to meet the demands of the customers. Various telecom companies provide structured cabling solutions for efficient and effective data transfer over a connected network.

Structured cabling can be found in the infrastructure used in large buildings and organisations. Flexibility in the networking structure can be ensured with the use of structured cable architecture. This cabling infrastructure can be broadly divided into six sub categories, which include cable entrance facilities, equipment and telecommunications room, backbone and horizontal cabling connects and work area components.

Networking and telecommunications have become the order of the day and as such it becomes essential to have a standard data transfer mechanism. Data transfer in large organisations and industries occur via the use of cables. Fibre optic cables are generally used as they provide high speed data transfer while minimal data loss during transmission. The telecom companies with Internet Protocol (IP) phones can use a single cable for transmitting both, voice and data.

The use of a standard cabling technique in large industrial organisations facilitates sharing of data and other resources uniformly. The topology followed while laying these cables in an organisation is decided as per the architecture of the building. There are experts in the market who provide solutions to the type of cables to be used depending on the budget and requirements of customers. It becomes essential to select the right type of cables for creating an effective and efficient data transfer network in an institution or an organisation. Wiring the network also requires the use of a central patch panel and a network switch, which is further connected to the IP or the patch panel of the Private Branch Exchange (PBX).
