Design, Installation, and Maintenance of Structured Cabling Systems

DNA designs, installs, and maintains structured cabling systems based upon the specific needs of your company or business.

Our structured cabling system designs:

  • Allow for adds, moves, and service upgrades quickly and easily.
  • Allow growth with minimal incremental cost.
  • Accommodate a wide variety of hardware configurations and network topologies.
  • Integrate with any computer and telephone system to allow for maximum interchangeability and flexibility.

Data Network Associates' installation services include the implementation of any cabling design. Our maintenance services extend to providing support for any of our installations as well as any non-DNA installations through service agreements.

Management of and Consultations on Communications Projects

The senior staff at DNA bring an average of 15 years of project management and technical consulting experience to your communications projects. We are highly skilled professionals trained in all aspects of physical layer network installation.

Project consultation services include:

  • Request for Proposal (RFP) creation.
  • Contractor selection and recommendation.
  • On-site technical assistance.
  • On-site contractor supervision and inspection.

Upgrades of Existing Cabling Systems

DNA specializes in migrating enterprise wide networks off of old legacy cabling systems to any of the new industry standard high speed cabling systems. We can coordinate a smooth transition and minimize the downtime associated with such large scale transitions.

Testing, Certification and Maintenance of Twisted-pair and Coaxial Systems

DNA provides a complete testing and documentation package for twisted-pair and coaxial cable systems. All Category 5, Category 5e and Category 6 cables installed by Data Network Associates will meet or exceed the technical specifications and performance characteristics set forth in the TIA/EIA-568 standards. We have the capacity to test any pre-existing UTP installations to any level on the market today with our MicroTest OmniScanners.

Testing, Certification and Maintenance of Fiber-optic Cabling Systems

DNA provides a complete testing and documentation package for singlemode (1310/1550nm) and multimode (850/1300nm) fiber-optic cabling. Test results are generated with a Corning OTDR Plus Mulitester II Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) and MicroTest power meters (CertiFibers as well as ONMIFibers). The OTDR provides a graphical baseline with which to compare the quality and consistency of the fibers. Power loss (dB loss) is measured bi-directionally with the power meters and is documented on a strand-by-strand basis. All results are presented in a three-ring binder for instant reference.

Graphic Documentation of Network and Cabling Systems

Network and cabling system documentation is generated graphically using AUTOCAD. We can produce professional full color illustrations and documentation. These services include logical network design, cable routing, punch block layout, and patch panel systems for any network.
