Today's business community requires efficient information delivery systems. PowerUp recognizes the importance LANs (Local Area Networks) and WANs (Wide Area Networks) play in meeting management's needs when operating in dynamic environments.

Because of the development of high-speed unshielded twisted pair copper cable, known as "Category 5", traditional architecture including ARCnet, Ethernet and Token Ring are being replaced.

The current, but diminishing, ge neration of LAN cabling architecture support transmission speeds rangingfrom about 2.5 MBPS for ARCnet, 10 MBPS for Ethernet, and 16 MBPS for Token Ring. The up and coming cabling architecture is either high speed variants of existing ones or new, "ATM"-"ISDN"-"FDDI". The new Category 5 copper-based architecture supports speeds from 20 MBPS for ARCnet Plus to 155 MBPS for Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). The fiber-based architectures, such as, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), support speeds of up to 100 MBPS, for LANs as a high speedmedium directly to the workstation or as a backbone from closet to closet, for WAN across a campus or throughout a metropolitan area.

PowerUp's certified technicians are thoroughly trained and experienced in the installation, termination and certification of the new Category 5 and Fiber Optic cabling.PowerUp has the technical knowledge and practical experience to help assist your needs and determine how Category 5 and Fiber Optic cable can best serve your LAN/WAN integrated system.

All cabling installed by PowerUp meets N.E.C. code and TSB 67 cabling standards. Testing is completed with a Microtest Penta / Scanner @ 100 Mhz, and test results can be provided along with cabling documentation.
