Data cabling installation works on all structured cabling networks are carried out to the highest standards by our qualified, employed staff using branded quality materials. Each installation is fully tested using Fluke cable analyzers and a TIA-568B/ISO 11801:2002 certificate provided upon completion.


Warranties of up to 25 years are available on structured cabling installations.


Our consultants can design  a structured cabling network that provides the capacity, scalability and manageability required by today’s demanding applications.


All structured cabling installations are fully project managed from quote stage to handover leaving you free to concentrate on your core business. All aspects of the data cabling will be undertaken from installing containment comprising trunking/basket and conduit to diamond core drilling reducing the burden of managing multiple contractors. All floor and carpets can be lifted and relaid as required.


If floor boxes are required or existing floor boxes have to move, Livewire can provide the full service in house using our NICEIC electrical engineers to provide full testing and certification in accordance with BS7671 and NICEIC best practice, please call us for details on 020 8254 0800.

Fibre

We offer our clients complete fibre solutions – from design, installation, completion testing and certification. Typical installation sites include schools, colleges, hospitals, industrial sites and offices.


Whether you need a fibre optic backbone for a data cabling system, fibre to the desk or links between buildings or floors. We have the expertise to undertake any project!

We install multimode OM1, OM2 and OM3, and single mode OS1 fibre optic cables.


Testing any fibre installation is one of the most important steps to ensure your installation is working to its full capability.


As an integral part of the Livewire network diagnostics & fault finding process, we Fluke test each installation to assure our customers of the adequacy of their installation. Each customer is then presented with a PDF of all readings for future reference.


As an additional  service, we are also able to offer the hire of an engineer and Fluke test equipment anywhere within the UK for certification and fault finding.

Testing

As data networks support ever growing demands including VoIP telephony and IP CCTV, combined with hardware upgrades and replacements, the network cabling is often forgotten. Cabling that worked under lower load conditions will not perform in a busy network and combined with age can create problems and slow the network to a crawl.


Testing the data cabling with a cable analyser (eg. Fluke DTX1800) will ensure that the cable is tested for all the parameters across the range of frequencies required for the cable to comply with the TIA regulations. A certificate will be produced that will show the state of the cabling at the time of the test and this can be compared with the certificate provided when the cabling was installed to check for signs of degradation. A sample of a certificate is shown below.


Livewire test and provide certificates for all of the data installations we perform as standard using our own test equipment. All records are stored on our central database using Linkware software and backed up off site to ensure your records will always be available for you. The records are send to the customer in an easily accessed pdf format.


Testing the network is a cost effective step in isolating the cause of slow or unreliable networks and is a prerequisite for VoIP telephone being implemented.


Please contact us for details of cost for testing from one point to an entire network including the copper cabling and the fibre optic cabling.

Wireless

Wireless computer networks can make life so much easier, but only if they are working correctly, quickly, and safely. A wireless network by Livewire will meet or exceed your specifications for reliability, speed, and security.


 We start by surveying your site and identifying the best access points for complete coverage of your office space with the least signal interference. Then we install all the compatible cabling and hardware components. Depending on your security preferences, we then set up WEP, WAP or RADIUS security on your wireless network.


Whether you will have just a few wireless users, or want to take your offices completely wireless, contact Livewire today. We design and install wireless networks to be convenient, reliable, and scalable to your future needs.
