The OnQ Structured
Wiring System uses the highest quality cables available for telephone, video and high
speed data. The Category 5 unshielded twisted pair cable provides 4 separate pairs
used for voice, modem, fax or a home computer network. Cat 5 cable handles data
rates up to 100 Mbps. The Cat 5 cables are "home run" from each wall plate
location to an OnQ service center (pictured at left) for central connection to incoming
telephone services or home networking. The cable has a convenient reference mark
every foot for easy length determination. The cost of Cat 5 high performance cable
is minimal versus standard grade voice cabling.
The OnQ Structured Wiring System is the wiring foundation that allows you to upgrade your
video transmissions, voice, data and system control. It also accommodates present
AND future digital and video services from the telephone, cable and satellite service
The Series 6 (RG-6) coax cable is
quad shielded (four layers of protection) for maximum shielding effectiveness. It
meets the most stringent FCC and cable company performance requirements for GHz bandwidth.
The coax cable is also installed "home run" from each wall plate to the
OnQ service center.
