Choosing The Right Copper Cabling Types

Ethernet cabling comes in several different types, depending on your needs. The most common types are Cat(egory) 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6a, and one the latest- Cat 7. Each offers higher data throughputs, ranging from 100Mbps up to 10Gbps.  

Hummingbird Networks can carefully examine your business plans and building architecture, choosing the right cables for your needs - without overpaying for cable you don't need.

Untangling Your Fiber Optic Options

To the untrained, the options in fiber optic cabling can be boggling.  With dozens of slight variations in connector type and cable construction, it takes an expert to know which fiber lines will be right for your needs.  Fiber cable choices will vary greatly depending on desired speeds and transmission length.

Hummingbird Networks has that experience, and can guarantee a great fiber rollout.
