Whether it’s a large data center project or a small business in Arizona, chances are you rely on your network to keep your business running smoothly. The best network is the one you never have to worry about. That means having your infrastructure set up the right way from day one. Network cabling is an important part of any network deployment project, but there are a few things you need to know.
Understand Your Needs
Setting up a network in Arizona can be a daunting task, but having a basic understanding of your needs can help. When working with a specialist, you’ll likely be asked some of the following questions:
When is your due date? This refers to either your moving date or the date you plan to cutover or launch your network.
How many drops do you need? This refers to the number of voice and data connections. A “drop” is the cable that runs from the starting point (normally a server room) to the end point such as a workstation.
What is your space like? The construction of your space determines the layout and type of network cabling needed. Knowing if you have a regular ceiling or a drop ceiling, as well as any other unique features is helpful.
Having the answers to these questions can help a professional help you set up the right network. The next step is to find a service that can provide you with the best solution.
Seek Out Services
There are many contractors and vendors who claim they are experts, but beware. Some are simply handyman types who do a little network cabling on the side. You need to partner with someone who works with and represents manufacturers; someone who understands the latest innovations and can offer safe, reliable, cost-effective solutions.
If you’re in the Arizona area, our specialists at SEGI can help. We represent a wide range of manufacturers and have the technical expertise to help you make the right choices for your network. Not only do we offer network-cabling installation solutions, we also have expertise in structured cabling, security systems, turnkey lightning protection and grounding installation. Our quality and customer service are unmatched in the industry.
Have a Choice of Products
Network cabling is more than just running cable through an office. A variety of peripherals is often needed to meet a network’s functional and safety requirements, particularly in Arizona. Having a wide choice of network infrastructure products is helpful to meet your unique needs.
Whether your network requires PVC conduit, copper or fiber optic cable, cable pathway systems, testing and diagnostic equipment, power products or overall grounding protection, SEGI can help. We work with big names like Berk-Tech, Caddy Support and Pathway Systems, Chatsworth Products Inc., Fluke Networks. Leviton and Prime Conduit.
As a business, you shouldn’t have to spend your time researching all these product choices and details. After all, you have a business to run. SEGI works directly with product manufacturers to help select the best products for your project, ensuring the best quality at the best price. We will save you time and money.
Work with a Local and Knowledgeable Vendor
When it comes to network cabling solutions, having someone nearby is important. Dealing with a vendor outside of your local area just isn’t the same. You’ll end up spending more time on the phone than getting your network set up.
When you work with SEGI, you’ll be dealing with a local Arizona business. We understand what it takes to set up a network in the state. Whether it’s navigating building codes and regulations or simply dealing with technology in The Grand Canyon State, we have plenty of expertise.
We have salespeople and product specialists located throughout the Arizona area to give you immediate, local assistance with product selection, installation and education as well as help you save tremendous amounts of money in construction and energy costs.
