CAT 5e and CAT 6 Data Cabling
With Houston businesses that ICS serves, CAT 5e and CAT 6 are by far the most common cabling installation. A CAT 5e installation is not as pricey as the CAT 6 or CAT 6a options, and it will get you 1 Gigabit of speed with a distance that reaches 100 meters. Due to the price benefit, it may be an excellent choice for someone who moves often. In general, there will be an approximate cost difference of 20 percent between the CAT 5e and CAT 6 installations.

Choosing a CAT 6 installation with ICS in Houston will provide you with 10 Gigabytes of speed for a distance of 55 meters. You will incur a premium for the equipment, installation and labor costs that go hand-in-hand with a quicker, newer installation.

CAT 6a Data Cabling for the Houston Area
The CAT 6A data cabling installation is becoming more popular in the Houston area. Cat 6A will do 10 Gigabits for up to 100 meters, and it also reduces crosstalk. If you’re looking for a data cabling installation that will provide great connections well into the future, CAT 6A can offer you the best performance at a longer distance.
