Telephone / Data Points Installation


Telephone / Data Points Installation

According to LS Handyman Singapore, all offices rely on the use of phone systems to make and complete their internal and external communications. When relocating to a new office building or when looking to set up a new premise, you will be required to perform cabling for your phones as well as for your data.

You should note that it is not possible to use phone lines as data lines. This is because the two have very different requirements when it comes to their cabling needs.


Data Point Installation

Data points are mainly used for smart home wiring, computer equipment, new home networks, phone points, audio visual boardrooms, audio visual equipment, and for national broadband network data points. A data point can be installed in any place: office, home, retail outlet, school, club and even in a hotel room. Many experts believe that data points are able to provide faster data speeds for people who mainly rely on the use of computers to complete their day-to-day tasks. The same person you call in to install your data point will also be able to connect your security system, television set, monitor, as well as antenna.


MDF Jumpering

  1. When connecting a new ADSL service or phone line to an apartment or flat, the handyman is obligated to connect the ADSL service or phone line to the Main Distribution Frame. This is often located in the complex where the service is being installed.
  2. There are units that come with their own lead-in cables. The cables often go all the way to the residence and all that needs to be done is to activate it and the service will automatically become available.
  3. Where there is an MDF available on the site, the ADSL service will normally be connected via an IP provider or phone carrier.
  4. You should note that the service will not become active until the cable in question has been jumpered.
