Structured Cabling

Structured cabling is a flexible solution that provides high speed transmission for combined telephone and computer networks. A single cabling infrastructure will avoid cost and servicing of duplicate networks and allows you to re-organise your work space. All Accent's structured cabling systems are tested to Category 5E standard and guaranteed to at least 100Mhz.

Cat6 Cabling

Cat 6 is the performance option for a network infrastructure. With future requirements in mind, all links are  100% tested to at least 250 MHz and exhibit transmission performance that far exceed ISO/IEC, EN and TIA/EIA specifications.

The need for this increased cabling bandwidth is the ongoing development of higher speed protocols. Category 5 cabling, when launched a decade ago had a much higher capability than the 10M Ethernet or 16M token ring protocols used but it has now reached the end of its lifetime with the advent of Gigabit Ethernet. Category 6 now provides additional headroom and as a result new developments in higher speed protocols will concentrate on Category 6 performance. Category 6 increases lifetime capabilities, ultimately resulting in a maximum return on investment. 

Cat5e Cabling

Utilising high quality connecting hardware & cable, System 5E exceeds the latest industry specifications (EN50173, ISO 11801 and EIA568B) for components and channel performance for category 5E (Class D) cabling systems.

For situations such as temporary premises, an investment in high sped cabling such as category 6 may not be cost effective, as category 5E systems are currently 15-20% more economical whilst still providing ample bandwidth for many of today's applications.

  • Accent Voice and Data have looked after our telephone requirements since our business moved to new premises in 2001. They are always there to lend a hand when needed and regularly carry out the necessary work during the night so that the changes have been effected by start of business the next day. They have assisted in changing our lines and calls supplier on several occasions which has resulted in cost savings. They also represent us when the system breaks down or we have billing problems. Our dealings with this company are always professional and dealt with in a super-efficient way. Deb and Gavin are friendly and helpful at all times and nothing is too much trouble.

  • I have been dealing with Accent Voice and Data for over 6 years now. Gavin and his team are really helpful and are great to work with and I look forward to working with them in the years ahead
