INCOM3 has provided companies with everything needed for a complete Cabling Infrastructure.
This includes the cable, Jacks, patch panels, patch cords and the Telephone terminations connections.
We also provide installations open racks, enclosure racks, server racks, cable sleeves and cable latter for wiring closets and server rooms.
And we are happy to share our knowledge and experience.

INCOM3 can provide infrastructure services.
Category 5e Network Cable
Category 5 cable is an unshielded twisted pair cable type designed for high signal
integrity. With the 2001 introduction of the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, the category 5 cabling specification was made obsolete and superseded by the category 5e specification.
Cat 5e cable is an enhanced version of Cat 5 that adds specifications for far-end crosstalk. Although 1000BASE-T was designed for use with Cat 5 cable, the tighter specifications associated with Cat 5e cable and connectors make it an excellent choice for use with 1000BASE-T. Despite the stricter performance specifications, Cat 5e cable does not enable longer cable distances for Ethernet networks: horizontal cables are still limited to a maximum of 90 m in length. Cat 5e cable performance characteristics and test methods are defined in TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001.
Generally solid core cable is used for connecting between the wall socket and the socket in the patch panel whilst stranded cable is used for the patch leads between switch and patch panel socket and between wall port and computer. Cable types, connector types and cabling topologies are defined by TIA/EIA-568-B. RJ-45 electrical connectors were nearly always used for connecting category 5e cable.
