Wiring your business for broadband
Your cabling requirements are dependent on the size and complexity of your business. Smaller businesses should follow the wiring recommendations for residential properties. Larger businesses should contact a structured cable specialist to design and deliver a tailored solution.
The cabling requirements of your business will be dependent on:
- Number of staff and what type of connectivity is required
- How you deliver voice services
- Data requirements
A well designed structured cable solution will take into account the technical requirements of the business and will include computer cabling, voice requirements, outlets, repairs, maintenance and fault finding.
Installation tends to be simplier than residential properties due to the nature of commercial buildings, with ceiling panels and a cable backbone part of many complexes.
Keep in mind that if you want to connect your business to our new Ultra-fast broadband network and you are in a multi-story building you will need consent from the building owner.
What happens when copper is required?
Within a UFB fibre area there may be commercial requirement for copper to be deployed to a new building/development for a particular network service required by a business.
In these instances, we will evaluate the deployment of copper on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the particular business need. We believe that the demand for copper network will decline over time as telecommunications service provider offer more sophisticated services over our new fibre network.
If you do require copper we will put together a specific network design and a quote on the costs of the specific lead-in and cabling requirements. We can undertake this work for you.
