Integrated network solutions for LAN cabling

Depending on the requirements and the demands placed on the building cabling

With our modern, standards-compliant and extendable network solutions, your enterprise is optimally equipped for the changes we are currently witnessing in the working world. Whatever your requirements are, with the PreCONNECT® LAN cabling systems, you will be supported by a high-performance network infrastructure offering various levels of flexibility.

1

standards-compliant

All three available solutions comply with DIN EN 50173. They correspond to a structured cabling solution or are extended by intelligent concepts for greater performance and flexibility.

2

pre-assembled

Time- and cost-efficient LAN cabling thanks to cables pre-assembled on one or two sides depending on the local circumstances. This results in time savings at the installation site of up to 50% depending on the employed network solution.

3

flexible

You can choose between different levels of flexibility in the spatial layout of workplaces as well as in the extension of the bandwidth and the individual assignment of data rates.

Any other questions?

Here you will find answers to various questions on the topic of LAN cabling.

What is more cost-efficient - fiber optics or copper?

At first glance, copper might seem to be the better choice due to its more economical and more flexible technology. That is why we still use low-cost, fully mature copper technology in the tertiary building cabling sector – in particular to connect terminal devices. However, fiber optic cables bring greater peace of mind for the future because larger bandwidths can be transmitted over this medium. PreCONNECT® smartNET is a future-proof LAN cabling solution that combines the two approaches. This combines the advantages of structured cabling with copper in the tertiary sector and fiber optics in the primary and secondary sectors. The result is a high level of flexibility in the spatial layout of workplaces as well as in the extension of the bandwidth and the individual assignment of data rates. This is combined with a high level of protection of investments because the network solution is optimized for forward-looking technologies such as Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).

Where does copper cabling reach its limits?

Although copper cables can also carry 40G, this is only possible over distances of no more than 30 meters in their current specification. It now seems that structured copper cabling reaches its absolute performance limit in the tertiary sector at 100 meters, whereas fiber-optic cabling still has great potential for the future. For example, several hundred data signals can be transmitted in parallel over a 9-µm fiber. Using a copper cable, by contrast, it is only possible to transmit a single signal.

What makes the PreCONNECT® smartNET concept so special?

Two characteristics cause PreCONNECT® smartNET to stand out from conventional cabling systems. On the one hand, through the use of a passive optical fiber consolidation point in the secondary sector which brings the future-proof fiber-optic technology closer to the end user. The consolidation point makes it possible to reduce the tertiary copper cable lengths to a minimum (approx. 25 metres), thereby permitting considerable cost savings. The second feature that makes the intelligent network solution so special is the integration of office distributors (OD) in the tertiary sector. This leads to a high level of flexibility in the design of individual spaces as well as in the extension of the bandwidth and the individual assignment of data rates. Another advantage lies in the space which is saved. Whereas a separate room is needed for large floor distributors, the office distributors can be installed in the double-floor, in the ceiling area or on the walls and integrated in any working environment without imposing any additional space requirements.

What are the advantages of pre-assembled LAN cabling systems?

All the LAN cables in our PreCONNECT® systems are pre-assembled. This applies to both the fiber-optic and copper products. Pre-assembled cables are factory-measured. This means that all the fitter has to do on site is lay and connect them, creating a genuine plug & play installation. As a result, up to 50% of the on-site installation time can be saved depending on the project, thereby cutting project completion time – a highly valuable commodity in today’s world.
