The Right Cables for Office Work
Today, in the 21st century, more people than ever are using electronic devices for work and entertainment such as cell phones, laptops and PCs, game consoles, and more. Some of these devices are mobile, and are capable of wireless internet connections, such as laptops and smartphones. This is very convenient, but all the same, wireless tech has not made cables such as bulk cat6 cables, bulk USB cables, or cat5e cables obsolete. In fact, for some applications, cables cannot be replaced at all, such as for a 100 ft HDMI cable. When it comes to bulk cat6 cables, these cables are ideally used in an office space where many desktop PCs are in operation at once, and bulk cat6 cables can also be used for home offices or even home entertainment systems. What are some of the advantages of using bulk cat6 cables, HDMI cables, and the like?
Cables for Office Work
Most places of business today, even the smaller ones, typically make good use of computers and the Internet. It is one thing to use a wireless connection for a laptop while in a coffee shop, but in a crowded office, that may not work so well. A large office might have dozens of desktop PCs in use at once, and they would interfere with each other if they all used wireless internet connections (and possibly overload their provider, too). Instead, IT professionals will be asked to thread bulk cat6 cables and other cable types throughout the office, and keep everything connected. An ethernet cable will plug into a PC or laptop at one end, and plug into a router at the other. Any number of PCs, routers, and cables may be used in an office, and the end result is a secure, smooth internet connection for all computers involved. No interference will be a problem when cables are used, and a cat6 cable boasts four pairs of copper wires to make for a fast internet connection. Such cables are threaded discreetly throughout the office to avoid tripping hazards, and IT crews can even drill holes in the floor to let these cables pass through.
What about bulk fiber optic cables? These are flexible, thin glass cables that transmit data with pulses of light, and ever since the late 1980s, they have enabled incredibly fast data transmission speeds. An office manager my hire outside crews to install some fiber optic cables for the office, and those cables can easily provide for all of the office’s internet needs. Spare, “dark” cables will be installed too, which may come online as the office’s internet usage expands. They can also be activated if any of the main cables malfunction.
A data server, meanwhile, is a room filled with hundreds of computers all linked with cables to create a single, massive entity that boasts fast processing speed and enormous data storage space. Desktop PCS in the office can be plugged into this data center with cables, allowing them to share data and access that huge storage space with ease. Such data centers are typically private and secure, and more cables and computers can be added anytime to expand that data server further.
Cables for Home Use
Meanwhile, homeowners tend to need advanced computer cables, too. A home office is possible when the employee plugs their PC or laptop into a router with an ethernet cable for a secure connection, and cables can connect that PC into a fax machine or printer, or other devices.
Smartphones can be plugged into a lightning cable on one end, and plugged into a USB slot with the other end, such as plugging into a computer. This can recharge the phone and allow both devices to share data. Adapters allow smartphones to plug into ordinary wall sockets to recharge, too.
A home entertainment system is made possible with cables. HDMI cables can be used to connect a laptop or game console to an HDTV or a digital projector, and display high-def visuals. Cables can also plug in a sound system, and connect a TV to a Blu-Ray player or the likes. Ethernet cables, meanwhile, can plug a game console or laptop into a router for video streaming services and online gaming.
