Voice Cabling

Lone Star Cable offers a wide variety of voice services. Everything from voice grade cable to Installation and relocation of PBX and key systems. We offer new and used telephone switches to meet the demands of your business. Voice cable is normally installed using category 3 cable, which helps drive down the price. The price for voice runs are usually less because the installation does not require the same expensive supplies as category 5e/6 installations. It also does not have to meet certification standards, therefore it takes less time and labor to install.

However, keep in mind that emerging technologies, such as I.P. telephony (VOIP), will force the upgrade of voice wiring to category 5e or better. So, in an effort to reduce duplicating expenses, you may want to consider installing Category 6 from the beginning.

Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber Optic cable is revolutionizing how we move data from point a to point b. It accomplishes the exact same function as copper cables, but the speed at which it accomplishes it is incomparable. Fiber technology uses end equipment capable of transforming electrical signals into pulses of light. It´s transmitted through the fiber cable and converted back to electrical signals at the remote end. Over all it´s not a complicated process, but in order to work correctly, your cable must pass exacting test standards. Copper Cat-5e and Cat-6 cable maximum length is 295ft.This is where Lone Star Cable can help, we have the specialized tools and knowledge to make your fiber connections work right the first time.

Category 5 cabling is currently the most widely used medium for data transmission within the cabling industry. It is used in offices and homes a like. It was originally developed for voice, but was rapidly adapted to computer networks. It´s typically used for twisted pair high speed networks (100BASE-TX) over 22 or 24 AWG.

category 5e standard
New cabling standards are continually being considered for  improvement. Advanced GUI applications are placing great demands on existing network cable speeds and it´s not even close to being over. The original category five standard has been in place for many years. The category 5 enhanced standard has only been released for a little over a year and category 6 is almost finalized as it´s replacement.

Category 5 enhanced operates at the same frequency (100MHZ) as CAT 5, with increases in certain channel performances.
