Network Cabling

Data & Voice Cabling

When it comes to network design, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing and installing the right cable for your network. Network cable is used to connect and transfer data between computers and a network. There are different types of network cable, and the appropriate type to use will depend on the structure and topology of your network. (more about Network Cabling)

Whether a single building or campus of buildings, the communication network cabling system is the foundation upon which the computer network is laid. A well designed, professionally installed network cable system reduces the total cost of ownership and future-proofs the network, allowing it to meet additional demand. AlcanTel has been involved in both the design and installation of the backbone and horizontal network cabling for many facilities throughout Alaska.

AlcanTel provides complete services for installation of voice and data cable from design to installation, testing and documentation. Involving AlcanTel in your project will ensure that you will utilize the best products for your application whether that product is Category 5e, 6, 6a or fiber optic cable. Our installations and designs follow the latest revision of the EIA/TIA/ANSI telecommunications standards.

Additionally, we are able to provide our customers a performance guarantee of up to 25 years for the completed installations that we perform. This warranty is not just a typical product warranty but goes far beyond, providing a guarantee of the performance level for the entire period. This guarantee covers not just product but the installation labor as well. AlcanTel is able to offer this by utilizing commitments provided by a select number of manufacturers that back their products to meet these criteria. In return, AlcanTel adheres to specific installation practices and meets regular training commitments that serve to enhance the quality of our installation, adding further value for our customers.

In addition to being a certified installer for the following Structured Cabling Systems, AlcanTel provides the performance guarantees for our completed installations that utilize these products under the terms of the warranty: 

TE Connectivity/AMP– ADC became part of the AMP line of structured cable projects in 2011. This combined the best of two sets of offerings, ADC with their best in class unshielded product line and AMP with their unique shielded solution. In addition to a 25-year warranty program an additional guarantee is provided for zero bit errors for a period of 5-years, with a renewable 5-year period available upon request. The only way to guarantee zero bit errors is to connect actual equipment to the structured cable system and that is exactly how this testing is accomplished. Utilizing the most advanced test equipment available today, we are able to determine how well the customer’s actual data is being transmitted on the installed network cabling.
