Voice cabling: An essential part of your telecom infrastructure
To keep your office running as efficiently as possible, it’s important to have voice cabling that allows your staff to communicate effectively and connect to each other no matter where they are in the building. This might seem like an unnecessary investment, but it can be an integral part of supporting modern business practices and communication among employees. Here are some reasons why voice cabling should be at the top of your list when it comes to updating or adding to your existing telecommunications infrastructure.
What is voice cabling?
Data cabling is a critical component of most data networks. Data cables can carry both voice and video signals but are sometimes referred to as voice or Cat 3 cables to distinguish them from higher-capacity network cables. Structured cabling services help businesses create an organized telecommunications system with wiring that’s easy to maintain. LONDONOS Cabling offers a complete one-stop data cable installation solution based on over 20 years of experience in structured cabling installations, including voice, video, and networking solutions. In this blog post, we have touched on some of the benefits of structured cabling. Keep reading for more information about the various types of structured cabling systems that we provide!

What are the main components of a voice network?
The main components in a voice network are the phone, the key telephone system, and the wiring that connects them. There are two types of wiring commonly used for voice networks: category 3 cable (Cat 3) and voice over internet protocol (VoIP). Voice-over IP is becoming more popular because it’s less expensive to install than Cat3. For a short-distance interconnect between cabinets or telecommunications distribution points, you could use Cat3. If you have a long span between cabinets or if you need to run cables through walls or floors, then VoIP is the better option. Regardless of which type of wire you choose, LONDONOS Cabling offers excellent structured cabling installation services. Our data cabling company has extensive experience with Cat3 installations, plus we can also offer cost-effective VoIP solutions.
