Category 5e

DLI System 5e is a healthy mix of high performance and low cost. Utilising high quality connecting hardware and cable, System 5e exceeds the latest industry specifications (EN50173, ISO 11801 and EIA568B) for components and channel performance for category 5e (Class D) cabling systems.

For situations such as temporary premises, an investment in high speed cabling such as category 6 may not be cost effective, as category 5e systems are currently 15-20% more economical whilst still providing ample bandwidth for many of today's applications. With a network consisting of DLI System 5e, the corporate infrastructure will have the capability to handle today's higher bandwidth requirements such as Gigabit Ethernet. The advent of Gigabit Ethernet has spelt the end of category 5 as its specifications cannot cope with the demands of such high bandwidths. Consequently, standards for category 5e (Class D) are now in place and need to be followed if the cabling system is to provide the necessary return on investment. DLI's System 5e is therefore ideally placed to avoid the need for unnecessary and expensive upgrades over the lifetime of a cabling infrastructure.

When installing a cabling infrastructure the product selected is an important factor, but a good system is useless if installed incorrectly. DLI pride themselves on being an Industry Trained Installer and having a workforce that undertakes regular training and testing to ensure a competent provision of design, survey, installation and audit services. With DLI's policy of directly employing cabling technicians, the whole team has a pride in their workmanship and all have a responsibility to achieve customer satisfaction, something that cannot be accomplished by utilising subcontracted staff. You will always deal with an expert that is directly employed by DLI.

DLI is not only a cabling company but also provides solutions for data and voice networks. Cabling infrastructure and the voice and data networks are inextricably inter-related, allowing DLI to provide a unique capability of ensuring that the cabling system is designed appropriately for the network traffic, and vice versa. As a result, significant savings can be made, for example: in the numbers of user points needed to support IP telephony, to ensure the backbone media is optimised and by ensuring the hub locations minimise costs of network hardware.
