Network Cabling

TELNIS provides data, voice, and video cabling solutions and services to businesses and institutions. In today's network cable systems, a high level of knowledge and installation skill is required. This kind of expertise is exactly what you receive from our highly skilled and experienced network installation team. Our team can provide a great range of services to meet your company's cable installation needs and budget.


Ethernet cabling that satisfies the criteria for the EIA/TIA-568 standard's Category 3, which allows data transfers up to 10Mbps. We use this for basic telephone and will not support data.

Cat5 Cables (UTP)

(Unshielded Twisted Pair)

A multipair (usually 4 pair) high performance patch cable that consists of twisted pair conductors, used mainly for data transmission. Note: The twisting of the pairs gives the patch cable a certain amount of immunity from the infiltration of unwanted interference. Cat 5 UTP cabling systems are by far, the most common (compared to SCTP) in the United States. Basic cat 5 cable was designed for characteristics of up to 100 MHz Cat5 cable is typically used for Ethernet networks running at 10 or 100 Mbps.

Cat5e Cables(UTP)


Same as Cat5, except that it is made to somewhat more stringent standards. The Cat5e standard is now officially part of the 568A standard. Minimum Cat5e cable is recommended for all new installations, patch cords and Ethernet cables.

Cat6 Cables(UTP)

Same as Cat5e, except that it is made to a higher standard. The Cat6 standard is now officially part of the 568A standard. Cat6 Ethernet cables and patch cords are available as both off-the-shelf and as custom made products.

*Note: Cat5e and Cat6 can be used for voice over IP applications*.

Cat5e, RJ45 jack

(Work Area Outlet)

An 8 conductor, compact, modular, female jack that is used to terminate cat5e patch cables at the user (or other) location. The jack is specifically engineered to maintain the performance of cat5E cabling.

Cat5e Patch Panel

A Cat5e Cable consists of a length of cat5e cable with an RJ-45 male connector, crimped onto each end. The patch cable assembly is used to provide connectivity between any two cat5e female outlets (jacks). The two most common are from hub to patch panel, and work area outlet (jack) to the computer.

Fibre Optics

The technology in which communication signals in the form of modulated light beams are transmitted over a glass fibre transmission medium. Fibre optic technology offers high bandwidth, small space needs and protection from electromagnetic interference, eavesdropping and radioactivity. This is used also when either Cat5e or Cat6 is used for distances over 295 feet. We specialize in single mode, multi mode, indoor or outside plant (OSP).


Coaxial cables are used primarily for CATV and other wideband, video, or rf applications. TELNIS can install RG59, RG6, RG11 (for feed) we can also install coax for your Cable TV or Direct TV needs consisting of home runs without splitting the signal.
