Have you ever had weird problems on your
network and none of the equipment appears to be bad?
I once had a customer with a computer that constantly dropped the
network connection. The network card was fine, and the other
computers never lost their connections. When I looked at the
cabling it was a flat wire CAT 3 patch cord. That was not suitable
for the network he had. Once that was replaced the problem went
away. He had been dealing with that for over a year with the other
IT company! They kept telling him nothing was wrong.
Your network cabling is the most important part of your network.
Poorly terminated cabling will result in problems, as well as improperly
deployed cabling. For example you cannot run a network cable in the
ceiling over a florescent light. Many people do not know this.
The electronic interference from the light will corrupt data transmitted
through that cable. This can be a particularly nasty problem to
troubleshoot, and it would lead to intermittent problems, especially if
the light is not always on. It pays to make sure the cabling is done
right the first time.
