In today’s world, businesses of all sizes rely heavily on the efficiency and reliability of their networks to operate successfully. A vital aspect of a well-functioning network is the quality of its cabling. In this blog, we will discuss why the quality of your cabling matters and how Datacat can help you achieve optimal performance.

1. Speed and Reliability 

The quality of your cabling affects the speed and reliability of your network. High-quality cabling ensures that data travels at faster speeds with fewer interruptions, reducing latency and improving user experience. With low-quality cabling, you risk data loss, slowdowns, and even complete network failures. This can lead to lost productivity, dissatisfied customers, and, in some cases, reputational damage.

2. Evolution of technology

With each advancement in networking, the demand for faster and more reliable connections increases. Old or low-quality cabling can’t keep up with these new demands, leading to outdated systems and inefficient operations.

One such example is the emergence of WiFi6e, the latest standard in WiFi technology, which offers transformative increases in throughput. Traditional CAT6 cabling causes a bottleneck, leading to latency and slower connections. To avoid this, we recommend CAT6A (10Gbps) cabling, such as the Panduit VariMatrix cable, which offers all the benefits of a shielded cable without the costly grounding requirements.

3. Environmental factors

In addition to technological advancements, environmental factors can also affect the quality of your cabling. Electromagnetic interference, for instance, can cause signal interference and reduce the speed and reliability of your network. High-quality cabling is designed to mitigate such interference, ensuring that your network operates at optimal performance even in challenging environments.
