Whether it’s a data centre, office or apartment building, a copper structured cabling system is the ideal solution for all of your voice and data communications requirements. Flexible, robust and built to the latest European standards, Westcon Services structured cabling solutions are designed and built to accommodate current and future business needs. Installations are fully tested with the latest Fluke Networks testing equipment and are available with a 25-year manufacturer warranty.
Whether you’re planning a new fit-out project or simply looking to expand or improve your existing infrastructure, our trained engineers can help you find the best structured cabling products for your particular application.
Our cabling solutions include:
- Cat 5e – the recommended minimum specification for new cabling installations.
- Cat 5e runs at 100MHz and is available as either shielded twisted pair (STP) or unshielded twisted pair (UTP).
- Cat 6 / 6a – consider Cat 6 (250MHz) or Cat 6a (500 MHz) for more demanding network infrastructure applications, ideal for Gigabit Ethernet and beyond.
Fibre Optic Cabling
Providing greater bandwidth over longer distances than Cat 5e or Cat 6 copper cables, fibre optic cabling offers: secure, interference-free backbone or fibre to desk connectivity for demanding applications.
Having invested in expert engineers and Fluke Networks testing equipment, every ‘Westcon Services’ fibre cabling installation is guaranteed to meet IEEE 802.3ae Gigabit Ethernet requirements.
Our fibre optic cabling services include:
- Single Mode – with a higher transmission rate and providing fifty times more distance than multi-mode. Single mode fibre cable is ideally suited to providing 10 Gigabit Ethernet over extended distances.
- Internal / External – cables for internal use may need to comply with fire and safety regulations. Fibre optic cables in external locations can be subjected to harsh conditions such as moisture and temperature variations. Westcon Services has extensive experience in both environments and can advise you on choosing the right cable to meet your requirements. We can provide your business with a complete fibre optic cabling solution, built and tested to the highest industry standards whatever your particular application or environment.
Westcon Services can offer fusion splicing termination of fibre optic cables using the latest Fujikura fusion splicing technology. Fusion splicing virtually eliminates losses between fibre joints ensuring that a splice and the area surrounding it are nearly as strong as the fibre itself.

Network Testing and Audits
As standards improve and higher bandwidths push copper cables to their limits, something as simple as a faulty or low grade patch lead could have a significant impact on a network’s performance.
Cabling infrastructures can also become disorganised over time, leading to increased downtime and loss of productivity.
Testing networking infrastructure is not simply a case of plugging and unplugging a cable to see if it works. By utilising the latest techniques, equipment and knowhow, Westcon Services can provide detailed testing and analysis to ensure that your cabling infrastructure meets required standards. Our engineers can also provide comprehensive auditing of existing cabling infrastructures either as part of a network ‘housekeeping’ exercise or prior to network relocation.
