Q. Can I get a free estimate?
A. We strongly believe in free estimate, that's why INL Communications offers them on all new installations. However, if an extensive amount of troubleshooting is required in order to give you a price on a solution, standard service call rates will apply. The technician will tell you when you have surpassed the free service and give you the option of proceeding with a paid service.
Q. What is TIA/EIA Standards
A.TIA/EIA Wiring Standards offers you the information needed to plan, design, ground, and install a telecommunications system in a commercial or residential building. These standards will help you establish performance and technical criteria for various cabling configurations. They also specify cable components, transmission performance, system models and the measurement procedures needed for verification of balanced twisted pair and optical fiber cabling systems.
Using these standards during the initial planning and construction will allow you to build a telecommunications system that will support a multi-product, multi-vendor environment which will save you significant time and money. For more information click here.
A. CPE stands for Customer-premises equipment or Customer-provided equipment. A CPE is any terminal and associated equipment located at a customer's premises and connected with a carrier's telecommunication channels at the demarcation point ("demarc"). The demarc is a point established in a building or complex to separate customer equipment from main telephone company's equipment.
The illustration below outlines what a small demarc with CPE may look like.
A. Network infrastructure is the foundation upon which information technology and telecom networks reside. It is the “backbone” of the network and, in turn, the organization, with elements that allow all types of critical functions— including data processing, storage, security and communications.
