fibre cabling hampshireAll the structured cabling is built using market-leading products from Excel. Excels cables are world-class quality and surpass industry standards for quality and performance and technical compliance. All our  Excel cables come with a 25 year warranty as standard.

We offer the following options:

  • Cat5e

    Category 5e cable, is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. The cable standard provides performance of up to 100 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet), and 2.5GBASE-T.

  • Cat6

    Category 6 cable is a standardised twisted pair cable for Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e. The cable standard specifies performance of up to 250 MHz and has a reduced maximum length when used for 10GBASE-T.

  • Cat6a

    Category 6a cabling is perfect for most offices and premises. It is able to provide excellent stability and state of the art performance for modern-day office requirments. Cat6a can perform at frequencies up to 500 MHz which is twice as much as Cat6 cables. It is also backwards compatible for Cat5 cabling. It is designed to support 10GBase-T over the full 90 metre, 4 connector channel.

  • Fibre Cabling

    Your backbone has to be the most resilient part of your IT infrastructure and it has to provide the highest bandwidth. At Scion we have designers who know all the options and how to put them together to give you the best solution for your money. This may be based on copper or fibre, depending on the topology and the distance between the buildings.

    We've compiled a list of fibre optic interface standards and have shown the distances that can be transmitted over different types of cable below that can be connected onto a range of fibre connectors into panel or wall boxes:
