Network Wiring & Termination
Commercial Building / Offices
For commercial buildings / offices with drop ceilings, we usually charge $120 ~ $150 (per line & up to 50ft) to run the wire, terminate ends & testing for most jobs. *Parts are extra. We can offer you a flat rate based on the how many cables you need to run and the distance for each line. For terminating wires and/or installing patch panels (without running new wires), it's charged by an hourly rate of $150 for the first hour and $80/hr thereafter.
For residential jobs, it usually requires on-site assessment for running new wires, especially if it's a finished construction. In condos, lofts & apartments, due to the concrete structure of the building, you will be very limited to run cables through walls & ceiling. For terminating wires and/or installing patch panels (without running new wires), it's charged by an hourly rate of $150 for the first hour and $80/hr thereafter.
Network Wiring & Termination
We can run Cat5e, Cat6 network wires & other telecommunications wiring such as Coax, Phone line, Cat3 for your home or commercial building. We use proper fire-rated cables that meets or exceeds building codes for in-wall / in-ceiling applications such as Riser & Plenum wires. We can terminate the telecommunication wires and connect them to your network & run tests to verify.
Pre-wiring cables during construction or renovation is the best time to run the wires to save time & labour costs, especially for residential. Because if you try to run cables after the construction is already finished, you would have to cut open the wall and ceiling to run cables afterwards making damages to the drywall. For commercial buildings, it's not as crucial if you have tile / drop-ceilings but if it's going to be finished with drywall, then it is highly suggested to pre-wire cables to save cost on extra labour.
Network Wire Termination
You might already have network cables that are pre-wired by the builder but not terminated at the ends. And a lot of times, if it's pre-wired by the builder, those cables are usually not labeled to know where each cable is running to. We have the tools to identify each cable and we can terminate them with either keystone jacks or patch panel and label them for you. We can install patch panel in the central area where all the network wires are running to and install Cat5e or Cat6 Jack wall plate in each room.
RJ45 Jack Connector Crimping
We can terminate the Cat5e or Cat6 cable ends by crimping with RJ45 connectors to either T568A or T568B standards & test them for you.
After terminating the network wires, we can connect all the wires to your switch and/or router and make sure your network is up and running.
Patch Panel Installation
Patch panel comes in variety of shapes and sizes but one thing they have in common is that they're all made for 19" U Rack installation (except for the mini patch panel). And there are several different types of patch panel racks available. Generally, the most common ones are: Wall mountable rack (horizontal & vertical types), patch panel wall mount cabinet, floor stading tower-type relay racks & floor standing server cabinet. For smaller scale of connections, you could use mini patch panel or surface mount box instead of using a full size 19" patch panel & rack.
Horizontal Rack Mount
Horizontal rack mounts are available in different fixed depths & with adjustable depths. What you'll need depends on how much space you need from front to back based on the size of the rack mountable switch or other rack mountable devices / accessories. We can supply & install wall mountable horizontal racks for you. They are available in 1U, 2U, 4U, 8U & 12U at this time.
Vertical Rack Mount
Vertical rack mounts are ideal in tight spaces where Horizontal rack mount will protrude out too far from the wall. Since vertical racks are open in the bottom, you don't need to worry about how much space your switch takes up depth-wise. We can supply & install wall mountable vertical racks for you. These are available in 2U, 4U & 6U at this time.
Network & Server Cabinets
Network & Server cabinets are mainly used in larger scale commercial applications. They are available in different depths and widths depending on your space requirements to a certain degree. And they are also available with see-through glass/plastic doors or with perforated front and back for ventilation. We can supply & install these cabinets for you.
Mini Patch Panel
Mini patch panels are ideal for connections of 12 & less and when there's no other networking equipment to install into a patch panel rack. This is ideal for small scale business or homes with 12 & less wires. Mini patch panels are also very affordable and takes very little space wherever it needs to be installed. We can supply & install mini patch panels for you.

Mesh Wifi Network Installation & Setup
Nowadays, almost every electronic device seem to rely on wifi connectivity to work at its best. We can supply & help you setup a mesh wifi network in your home or business. We will strategically place the mesh points throughout your home or business to create the best mesh network possible whether hard-wired or wirelessly.
Traditional wireless router's wifi signal is usually only good for up to 1500 square foot coverage. If you live in a house bigger than that, chances are, you probably have weak or dead wifi spots in your home. Before the mesh wifi systems were available, many people resorted to adding access points or range extenders to improve the wifi signal but it can be such a hassle having to change wifi SSID manually jumping from router to access point or vice-versa. It just wasn't really convenient at all for most people.
Mesh Wifi Technology
Mesh wifi systems are designed to work with at least 2 or more mesh wifi points to create one large wifi network with single SSID. And you can keep on expanding your wifi coverage area by adding more mesh points if necessary. Mesh wifi network works best when mesh points overlap each others signal. The mesh router & mesh wifi points (satellites) communicate with each other to give you the strongest signal depending on where you're located and where the closest mesh point is broadcasting signal from.
Google Mesh Wifi
Google Mesh Wifi system is one of the most popular mesh systems in the market today. We can supply the Google Mesh wifi points and install them for you.
Ubiquiti Mesh Wifi
Ubiquiti is another brand that offers Home & Business Mesh Wifi systems. We can supply Ubiquiti mesh system that fit your needs and install it in your home or business.
